David & Diann are getting married at the gorgeous W Hotel in Fort Lauderdale this June and I cannot wait! This hotel is the epitome of cool. Their engagement session was super cool and I had a great time. Diann is fabulous and brought 4 - yes 4!! - pairs of shoes. How much do I love that? My feet were living through hers vicariously since mine are so horribly swolen from being with child (sounds better than pregnant right?) that I can't wear anything but flip flops. But hands down the best part of the session was at the end when we were shooting at a closed down fire station. We're doing our thing and a public servant pulls up in his official car all set to grill us about what we're doing there. That's when David pulls out his badge. The guy goes, oh ok, and drives away. How cool is that!? Here's just a quick teaser from our session. More to come!

I love shooting in completely new locations and just walking around and finding light and great angles and lines. Sometimes I'll scout new spots ahead of time, but I really love going in without any specific ideas and just being in the moment with my peeps, the place and the light. Matt and Rachael were inspi-rad (ha ha, I'm a dork). Seriously though, they were so relaxed in front of the camera that they made it way too easy for me. We started downtown in Fort Lauderdale and then finished at Nova High School where they met. Isn't that the sweetest thing? High school sweethearts always make me feell all warm and gooey inside. :) I can't wait to shoot their November wedding in South Beach! I was so honored that they picked me to be their photographer. Matt works in advertising in New York and sees portfolios from photographers all the time, so I was really happy that they loved my style. Thanks guys! I had an absolute blast with you both.
And as always get 25 blog comments and get a 5x7 on me; get 50 comments and get an 8x10.
Last Saturday we attended a delightful Birthday Party for one of my favorite 4 year olds. The Young at Art Children's Museum is such a fun location for a child's birthday party so for all of you Ft. Lauderdale readers I would highly recommend it. If not for a party, than just a cool way to spend an afternoon with your little ones. Happy Birthday Isabelle! We love you.
Tookie in the Dr. Seuss Room - he spent 90% of the party in this train :)
