Family Photography "The Magic of the Moment"

I just saw the rough cut of my family video, and AHA Image Studio http://www.ahaimagestudios.com/ has done an amazing job of capturing the fun experience of a family shoot. I really wanted my potential clients to see what goes on during a family shoot. This video captures it. Scott & Shelly (the owners of AHA Image Studio), spent so much time with me going over my vision for the video. Thank you AHA Image Studio for such a great experience. My video will be ready in mid-July. I can't wait!

Love this moment that I shared at the end with the girls. Very sweet.

Sweet Baby

This image had been in my mind for a couple of months. I had ordered this contemporary background and discovered this knitted pouch to put a baby in. I found the perfect baby for this shoot, she was 12 days old. I added a flower headband and took the photo. Glad I got this peaceful sleeping image because she woke up right after taking it & started crying.

The Magic of the Moment

I love these candid moments with a father and his daughter. I took these images last Sunday. I have been photographing Natalie since she was a newborn. Now she is 18 months old. I love the ability to capture time and make it last forever. Natalie will always have these photographs of this moment with her Dad. I know she will always treasure this special time in her life.
Happy Father's Day to all the Dads'.

Magical Weddings

I had the most amazing workshop with Rick Ferro, a legend in wedding photography. He created the wedding department @ Disney World. An entire day spent with Rick was like a dream come true. We had models dressed in gorgeous gowns, hair and makeup beautifully done. I learned so much about lighting and posing. How hand placement properly done can really enhanced an image. It was such an inspirational day for me. Here are some of my favorite photos that I took.

These photos were taken in Santa Ana at City Place. So many great backdrops to inspire us. It was a perfect over-cast day creating soft diffused light with only a silver reflector to bounce light on our bride's face. Love the red and white contrast.

Notice the hand placements in these photos.

Love the vintage look. Fabulous dress, background and bouquet.
