Vera is Three | Miami Children’s Portrait Session

It isn’t very often that I get to capture children. It isn’t that I don’t love doing it, but since my specialty tends to be high school seniors and families, I don’t often get requests to for children’s portraits. I really love doing them, and so I was especially excited when one of my friends asked me to do a portrait session to celebrate…

Personal Project | Photography Fun Day | Stepping Out from Behind the Lens

It is rare that anyone takes photos of me, so a cool part of our photography fun day was being in the presence of other people who enjoy taking photos. Carlos (instagram: carloso_way) snapped a few photographs of me working and I love them! I never know what I look like while taking photos, so it was cool to get to see things from…

Personal Project | Photography Fun Day | The Boys

In my last post, I talked about my summer project: a photography fun day for teens/ young adults to practice taking photos and/or modeling for them. Today, I will be showcasing the boys! First up is Alejandro! I don’t know Alejandro very well, but he is a good friend of  Mario’s (who you’ll see later in this post) and wanted to come along for…

Personal Project | Photography Fun Day | The Girls

I have been a high school teacher for seven years, so spending time with teenagers is something that I obviously love to do. In addition to teaching 10th grade English and Journalism, I am also a leader at my church’s youth group, so I really do know A LOT of teenagers. =) The summer is a time when I usually like to work on…

Let Freedom Ring!

Happy Independence Day!! Let’s celebrate freedom!  “And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and…

Sonderegger Family + Grandparents | Spring 2014: South Florida Family Portraits

When I was in highschool, I used to baby-sit the Sonderegger boys two to three times a month. It hard for me to believe that now the eldest of these boys, Michael, is officially graduated from high school and heading off to FSU in the fall. To celebrate Michael’s graduation, both sets of his grandparents came into town, and it was an awesome opportunity…

Behind the Scenes | Ryan’s Senior Portrait Session

I like to keep it all in the family. Whether that is my immediate family, my friends, or my church family. When we shot Ryan’s senior session last month, my good friend JD came along to help with the shoot. He and Ryan are both part of our amazing church family, and it was so awesome to get to work with them both. While I…

Rhodes Family | Spring 2014: South Florida Family Portraits

Jake is the amazing youth pastor at my church, and a couple of weeks ago I had the honor of photographing his awesome and adorable family. I headed out to the Boynton Beach Inlet with Jake, Kristin, and Baby Caleb around sunset for some spring family photos and beach fun. The love that this family has for each other is just so incredible to capture! Caleb…

My Easter Kitty

Just for fun and a whole lot of cuteness, I dressed my kitty up in a bow tie collar for Easter Sunday. I think he looks quite dapper. =) Hope you had a blessed holiday weekend!
