I’m so so SAH happy to share Lani Grace’s First Birthday CAKE SMASH session! Lani was, I think, My second “official” newborn session a little over a year ago even though I had done other newborn sessions before… (really? it feels like longer!)… anyway… Her mom Diana and I have known each other since we were little… seriously, I have a photo of us when we were maybe five in our ballet costumes about ready to perform! In high school, although always friendly she was a grade year older so we didn’t necessarily run in the same “social circles” even though we sort of did… (high school sort of fuzzy to me, sorry!) Anywho, after we graduated high school Dee and I had this funny thing where we would always see each other at almost ANY Target store we’d go to… whether it was the one closest to our homes or on the opposite side of the city… somehow we *always* run into each other… fast forward to her expecting Lani & our maternity session and then Lani’s session… we quickly became more than “high school acquaintances who now randomly see each other at Target stores”… I meaaaaaaannnnnn (inside joke)… we even have our Monday night “Bachelor/ette Dates” 😉 Here are some shots from Lani’s newborn sesh (where although I LOVE her session, you can see just how much my style has changed in just one year!).. and then of course the sessions from her cake smash! Keep an eye out for some “before & after” shots we took as well! 😉 xoxo!

Today’s session is from a maternity shoot I did with Krystel & Rene! These two love each other *so* much and they were so excited to meet their new little one… and so was I because I couldn’t wait to get my hands on him! During our session Rene showed me a little trick that him and his son had down packed… yeah.. his son.. the one still IN. THE. WOMB. The trick? Whichever side of Krystel’s tummy he spoke to the baby would swim (?), push (?) not sure what the kid was doing but he was RESPONDING directly to his Poppa’s voice… I almost keeled over & died right. there. <3 <3

I’m finally catching up to the good stuff… newbies! (I think *everything* is the good stuff… but the newbies are alwaayyss my favorites). Jordan was 17 days old here, and I was nervous to photograph an “older” newborn… yeah, 17 days is considered “old” (LOL).. but this little fella was a *dream* !!! It sure helped to have an amazeballs assistant aka his TIA & my friend Ailyn <3. This was supposed to be a short session because I had a previous engagement but he slept.so.good. that I couldn’t let him go so I may or may not have been late to the party because of this little nug! (sorry not sorry? hah!)

Anywho… here ya go! enjoy <3

Hi There! So… so much has happened since I last posted over at my old blog! (If you want to check that out click here) I got accepted into graduate school at FIU, I did two mini sessions; one for fall and one for the holidays. I attended a newborn workshop with Stephanie Williams Cotta  (I’ll post on that later), the holidays came & went… the New Year began and I started hardest semester of.my.life. I decided to have another squirrel moment and completely change not only the design of my website, but the hosting, and structure of it to. Hmm.. I changed my prices, offered newborn incentives, and hard had a social life. So ya see… I’m so sorry I’ve been away for so long… *but* I’m back! And my first post is in honor of throw back thursday… so I’m throwing it back to the fall & holiday mini sessions… hope you enjoy them! & if you want to stay up to date with mini session promotions, sales, incentives, giveaways etc… all you have to do is follow my Facebook and Instagram!

Fall Minis:

So we never really have “fall” here in Miami but boy are us Miamians *determined* to make it.look.like.fall.darnit! LOL It was *very* hot outside, and I am ever so grateful for my patient and awesome clients that day!
