Senior Photos with Emily | Portrait Photographer in Stuart FL

Emily was such a natural in front of the camera.  Her senior portrait session went off flawlessly.  The sun was shining, it wasn't overly windy, and everything was so green and fresh.  Even the air seemed to smell like sunshine.

 For her senior pictures first outfit, she wore the loveliest lace pink dress. It was such a great color on her and was perfect for the backdrop of all the greenery.  The contrasting colors enhanced the whole look and really made her pop off the page, so to speak.

Every senior portrait session is special to me.  Each of the seniors I photograph becomes a friend.  I pour my heart and soul into their senior portrait experience because I really want each senior to know how truly magical they are at this time in their lives.

Emily was, is, no exception.  She is so intelligent, and kind, and beautiful, and... well, I could go on and on.  Most of all, she is genuine!  That is such an important quality and so rarely found today.

I have so many incredible images from her senior photo shoot that I decided to do several posts, by outfit.  Here are some of her gorgeous senior pictures in her pink lace dress.  I have a crush on the dress....  seriously!  And the incredible senior wearing it is pretty crush-worthy herself!!

Engagement Photo Session | Portrait Photographer | Stuart FL

We couldn't have asked for a better day for this engagement photo session.  Despite the heat and humidity, it turned out to be a lovely day.  After the crazy rain in June, and one reschedule because of it, I was so happy when I woke up that Sunday morning to find the sun shining!

We met at Besos Salon so Maritza could have her hair and make-up done by Jessica (HMUA extraordinaire!) and then we were off to downtown Stuart for their session.  I always find such lovely spaces in downtown that are so perfect for photo shoots.

At first, we stopped at Gazebo Park.  I think this place is one of my favorite locations.  There is so much variety in that one little area, I could shoot a whole session there!  Here's one of the images taken there.

We also found a neat little alcove along one of the buildings near the park.  I love how the sunlight lit up the foliage in the background.

The bride-to-be with her beautiful smile!
Once the couple had a change of clothes, we were off to our second location.  Along the path of river rock and the surrounding foliage we stopped to take a few pictures.  This photo shoot location lent itself to a more intimate feel in the images.  Engagement photos should have a touch of that feeling.

So there you have it.  A fabulous and beautiful engagement photo shoot... with fabulous and beautiful people.  I loved Maritza and Geof's gentleness with each other.  They were so lovely to photograph!  I can't wait for their wedding.

Did you just get engaged?  Looking for a wedding photographer?  Give me a call... Let's chat about YOUR day!

Senior Pictures | Jupiter Portrait Photographer

The group senior portrait photo shoot.. what does it take to put it all together?  Months and months of planning and scheduling went into our senior photo shoot!  There were so many details to think about.

First of all, coordinating with all of these high school seniors and their busy schedules was quite a challenge.  Let's face it, today's seniors are involved in so many activities both in school and outside of school.  Honestly, I don't know how they fit it all in!

My amazing group of high school seniors during their photo session:

Group senior photo shoot in downtown West Palm Beach.
Once we had our date planned for our photo shoot, the next item on the list was the location.  I had been scouting areas for graffiti and interesting architectural elements for months.  Finally, I found the perfect location in downtown West Palm Beach.  And wow, there are some superb graffiti areas there!

Of course, the seniors and I pulled together just the right outfits and accessories.  We went with two different looks, one soft and one edgy.  I really wanted to do the soft, somewhat more elegant juxtaposed with the graffiti.  I love that look.

Emily, one of our senior portrait clients, was super helpful in assisting me in the wardrobe department.  We went shopping together on several occasions and she would text me pictures of outfits or pieces as she would find them.  I really couldn't have pulled it off without her help... <3 that girl!!!  And her  mom is pretty awesome, too! (Thanks Toni! xo)

Emily was so helpful preparing for our senior portrait group photo shoot.
Jessica, from Besos Salon, did an amazing job on all of the girls' hair and makeup.  They looked incredible.  She went with us on location to change up their looks for the second outfits.  Seriously, she is da bomb!!!

Here are a few more images of these amazing seniors.  Anthony was so patient while waiting for the girls to get their hair and makeup done.  He gets special props for being such a gentleman.  And he's a star athlete!

Our senior photo shoot second location and look... with Anthony and Ivy.
 Vivian and Casey are South Fork High School seniors, class of 2015.  They are besties, too.  Or, as Casey says, "the dynamic duo!"  Two beautiful girls with beautiful souls.

I made Vivian's tulle skirt for this photo shoot!  Yay, go me!  Ha!

Senior pictures at their finest... tulle and graffiti.  What a great play on textures and colors.  So eye-catching and unique!
So there you have it; a little sneak peek into what made our group senior portrait photo shoot a big HUGE success. (Yes, I know that was redundant.)  I can't wait to share some more images from this cool photo session.  They just keep getting better and better!

Are you ready to have a unique and distinctive senior portrait photo session with us?  Give us a call or email to book your session today.

Just a word of note:  I have only two summer dates left for senior pictures.  So if you are looking to book your session before school starts... don't wait!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Group Senior Pictures with Graffiti and Tulle in Palm Beach

We held our group senior portrait Elite Models shoot a few weeks ago in West Palm Beach.  It was EPIC! All of our 2015 seniors did such a great job, despite the humid, hot, and long day.  The pictures are to die for and I am having such a hard time deciding which ones to keep and retouch for display.  It's a good conundrum to have!

Each girl wore a tulle skirt with chambray or denim top for our first look.  They looked so beautiful.  Jessica and the rest of the talented staff at Besos Salon did an amazing job on their hair and makeup.  I love the soft and feminine look on the girls for the first concept.  (Wait until you see the other concept!)

I found a couple of very cool graffiti places and we were able to get to several of them.  The one in this image is huge and so diverse... there are so many cool colors all across it.  We got so many different looks just at this one location because of the variety in the graffiti and the surrounding hardscape.

Here's a glimpse into the amazing senior pictures we got that day.

High school senior pictures with tulle, chambray, and graffiti.
More pictures will be coming soon... but I just couldn't wait to share at least one!  Seriously, I just can't tell you how absolutely fabulous each and every one of these seniors was.  The guys were so patient while the girls had their hair and makeup done... kudos to them!
