Jill & Brett's engagement session almost didn't happen because of . . .  well, you know, rain.   But that's South Florida in the summer for you.  So we brought umbrellas, found some cover, and worked it out!  And we laughed and laughed.  I should record these sessions, because some of these conversation are too funny not to share!  Thank you guys for being awesome, gorgeous and funny!  I am one lucky girl.  Seriously. Best. Clients. Ever. And peeps, leave some comments!  25 comments = 5x7 for Jill & Brett on me; 50 comments = 8x10.

Here's where we got officially reprimanded by the Jupiter Police Department.  I think they thought it was unsafe.  I have to admit, I felt a little proud.  Yes, I'm a dork like that ;)_MG_8144-Edit

6 months old | West Palm Baby Photographer

I met up with Sowmya, Krishna, Ashwin and Ashwin's grandparents at John MacArthur State Park this past Sunday and spent a lovely afternoon capturing their beautiful family.    Ashwin is a complete doll and hammed it up for my camera :)  I can't believe that I've lived here this long and never been to this park.  It is such a beautiful place and a wonderful glimpse into what coastal Florida looked like a hundred years ago.  We even spotted some flamingos in the distance on our walk back across the boardwalk. Thank you guys so much for spending a few hours with me and being so relaxed and comfortable!  I truly have the best clients.

Oh, and as always, 25 blog comments gets you a 5x7 on me, 50 gets you an 8x10!  Leave them some comment love Darling Blog Readers!

Dave & Diann Engagement, Part 2 | South Florida Wedding Photographer

I seriously have the best clients!  Dave and Diann were so easy to work with; laid back, down to earth and totally cute with each other!   They are getting married at the beautiful new W hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, so we took some shots in their amazing "lobby", which they call the Living Room.  It's such a cool space and the entire hotel is absolutely beautiful. _mg_2460-edit1

Todd, Alohi, Kai & JJ Family Session | South Florida Family Photographer

Oh what an awesome session I had yesterday in Hollywood with this amazingly beautiful family.  They were gorgeous, their apartment was amazing and they were relaxed!  So needless to say I had a blast and am absolutely thrilled with the photos we got.  We got rained out a little at the end, but we rocked on anyway :)  And then I got to taste their coffee . . .  from their own farm in Kona!  It was the kind of coffee that stays smooth no matter how strong you brew it.  A coffee addict's paradise.  And chocolate covered strawberries and graham crackers to top it all off.   All in all, radtastic in every way :) Oh and guys, as mentioned, 25 blog comments gets you a 5x7 and 50 comments gets you an 8x10!

Alohi had these gorgeous green chairs in her living room and I loved the color of them, but couldn't resist this one in b&w.

Joyce, Tony, Summer & Jasper | Jupiter Family Photographer

This session almost didn't happen because of the windy & stormy weather, but I'm sure glad we waited for a completely gorgeous morning.   Joyce & Tony have absolutely beautiful and charming children and we had so much fun playing around on the beach and walking the dunes.  Jasper wasn't too sure about the beach at first but he warmed up to it pretty quick.  Summer loved collecting shells and giving them to her brother to throw in the water.  They were fun, friendly and completely comfortable in front of the camera.  My kind of session!  Thanks so much for hanging out with me guys.  Enjoy your sneak peek! And as promised, 25 comments gets you a 5x7 of your choice on me; 50 comments gets you an 8x10!

(got the awesome idea for this from the fabulous Amy Boring, who's an amazing photographer in Southern California)
