sunset family session, california | Florida Children Photographer

There is nothing like Family Session in California sunset, I tell you! Sharing my love for photography with others means everything to me!

My little family of 4 decided to be brave and after 3 weeks of travel in Europe we went on another 3 weeks long trip to Colorado and California with a California Zephyr train across 3 states in between.
When I mentioned to my friends that we will be driving from San Francisco to Los Angeles at the end of the trip, one amazing lady who is a photographer and a friend, invited us over to Sacramento!

We had arranged  mini shoot by her and another sweet friend of mine. All of them are such a talent in this industry!!
We not only shot this beautiful mom with her kiddos, photographed this sweet little family but also had a time to spend some time just simply relaxing. Kids played together like they were friends forever, husbands grilled out and the next day nobody wanted to leave! I swear, my kids plan to come back to Sacramento already!!

It was so wonderful to meet up, to photograph together, to change scenery and enjoy golden fields of California! I can now understand love and definition of “golden sunsets”, “California fields” and adoration for this state

Just look at this hill and this beautiful family of 4!!

I will go back in there at any time!

SERIOUSLY!!

Traveling around the country and world is one of my passions and I am thrilled to be able capture my clients memories outside United States and  outside my home state: Florida.

If you need me to travel outside of Florida to photograph your family, maternity, kids or newborn session,  CONTACT ME to talk about the details and let’s arrange your wonderful shoot!

Everything is possible!

When photographing another amazing photographer. Maternity and Family Beach Session.

When another photographer, whose work I follow, asks to shoot her Maternity Session…

IT’S SUCH AN HONOR.
It’s simply such an honor for others to put trust in me. I feel this way about every client of mine.
There is something even more special, when somebody who understands photography so well and who is so very talented, decides to book a session with me while they are away from home.
Floored? Yes, I was floored. Most definitely!
I know this lady for quite a long time,through Clickin Moms mostly, but I pretty much follow her work all over social media. So when I learned she was coming to Jacksonville AND booked a session with me, AND I would meet her family and see her beautiful belly, I WAS ALL IN.
Head first! Hahaha, not kidding!
I have to tell you, I loved their kids! Such fun, sweet kiddos and I think it is fair to say I made friends with them for life. Ok, joking! But we did ended up drinking milkshakes together and eating burgers, so that tells you something… We were hungry. Ha!
We wished to have a little more time, but I simply couldn’t wait to get back home and upload those images!
This mom was glowing! I gasped pretty much each time I was taking picture of her and wind came to frame…

I feel like I am giving you too many words. Just look, and you will know exactly what I mean.

Just a little light and lots of love

I am often being asked about at home sessions and how much light do we need to assure images will be the best…
Trully YOU DON”T NEED THAT MUCH LIGHT… for expressive dramatic low light imagery.
Is that what you are looking for?

I love light; indoor, outdoor, bright or low, so “best” means all different things to me.
If dramatic black and white images are what you admire the most then all you need is a window and me…

I promise. Your special moment will be captured!

Depth in the Shadows shoot out Click Away 2016

 

maternity beach session Ponte Vedra, maternity photographer, at home maternity session

Because of wonderful feedback from both of my sold out “Depth in the Shadows” classes last Click Away, I decided to host a little private group shoot out. At this point I’m thinking about 5 people. I may be adding an extra 2, but I want to make sure I have time for hands-on interaction, to help with your settings, and especially time to explain how the whole process of capturing emotional images works in my head. We will shoot in low light indoor conditions, photographing an expecting mama.

Time 2-5pm, which gives you and me time to enjoy Golden Hour. Date THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6.
Investment $250

We are going to learn:

-How to manipulate low light to capture creative expressive portraiture

-How to use available light to elicit emotive images

-We will explore the angles to get the most from our indoor location

This class will help you with any indoor photography, from everyday images of your children, maternity to family or a couple imagery.

All I want is to look at the image and be moved. I hope you feel the same.

You are welcome to check images all talented ladies took last year during my class. There is so many of them!!
