Chase: Delray Beach Back to School Session

Yesterday I shot one of my most favorite subjects, my little brother! Chase is 13 years old and an awesome kid all around. I love his style and that he is so multi-talented. He’s been begging me to take back-to-school photos of him for about a month now, and so we headed out to Delray Beach yesterday afternoon to take some fun shots. Chase…

Puppy Time!

Sometimes you just need to get out there and take some photos of the furry mammals in your life, because they brighten your day and love you unconditionally. Our family dog, Tina, is the best. Loyal, loving, and silly, she can brighten even the most melancholy of days by forcibly putting her head in your lap and refusing to give up until you pet…

Kaitlyn UM Grad School Graduation: Downtown Delray, South Florida Portrait Session

My good friend Kaitlyn is graduating from the University of Miami (my alma mater) in December with her Master’s Degree, so we celebrated with a portrait session for her graduation announcements. This gal is one of the best people I know and she’s gorgeous to boot! It made my job super easy. We began in Downtown Delray, a place I love to shoot. There…

PraiseFest 2013

My dad, Carl Foster, is a phenomenal event planner and marketer. There isn’t anything this man can’t do. He is also a man of God, and those two passions were united when he was brought on as the event manager for PraiseFest 2013. When I was asked to be the official photographer for PraiseFest, I knew I couldn’t say no. It was an honor to…

Michelle Class of 2014: Downtown Delray, South Florida Portrait Session

I am going to start this post with a warning: there are about to be a LOT of photos in this post. I just can’t help myself. Michelle’s senior session was just so darn fun and she’s gorgeous. Seriously, the camera loves her! I’ve known Michelle since she was about 4 years old (Eep! That makes me old.) and as soon as I knew I…

Salemme Family: Delray Beach Family Session

I’ve known the Salemme family since I was just 16 years old. Thyme was my high school math tutor, and for the past 11 years I have watched her beautiful family continue to grow. Now there are six Salemme kiddos, plus mom, dad, & grandma! For the Salemme’s session, we headed to Atlantic Dunes Park in Delray Beach because it offers the best of…

What do I wear to a Portrait Session?

One of the things I often get asked by clients is, “What do I wear to my portrait session?” The answer depends on a few things, and hopefully this post will help to ease some of the stress associated with choosing what you’ll wear in your photos. Solo Sessions are the simplest to plan because your clothing options do not depend on any other…

Epiphanie Clover Bag Review

The first time I saw an Epiphanie camera bag, I was at BlogHer in the summer of 2010. Karen Walrond, a.k.a Chookooloonks, and several other major bloggers/photographers had them, and I knew immediately that I needed one in my life too. My “lunchbox” looking camera bag was not doing it for me and I wanted more. I browsed the styles for hours, saving up…
