Seasoned Divas!

And the award goes tooooo...THE 50ish & FLY CLUB!!! Is it me or is the “older” generation of women becoming sexier, sassy, youthful, etc. I LOVE IT!!!!!!! I put “older” in quotes because the younger ladies are definitely getting a run for their money.

The photo shoots below are simply “older” women being comfortable in their skin, you can't buy nor fake this type of confidence. You probably wouldn’t believe me if I told you their exact ages; it’s pretty darn shocking!!! They all approached their individual shoots with uncertainty but yet provided TONS of energy and we all know I love love love energy (makes for a great shoot).

So this post is dedicated to women of ALL ages, shapes, and sizes; YOU too can be SEXY, FUN, and PURTTY (yes, I said purtty) LOL!

Gather your Girls!!!

"Friend" photo shoots are becoming extremely popular. This type of shoot tends to be super duper ROWDY and energetic. When a group of gals get together, you know there's going to be nothing but chatter, especially if they're close friends. Nonetheless, friends are uber fun to shoot. (once you get everyone to SHUTUP) LOL!!!
My gal groups below were an absolute blast; a great way for friends to spend some time together. Whether you want pictures of your best friends, your bridal party, or your sweet 16 court, don't neglect to have a photo shoot to capture those fun times. Not to mention, getting dressed up with hair and makeup is like the best thing in the world : )

Kid Mania!!!

There are many pleasures in life and photographing children happens to be one of mine. I’m going to try my absolute hardest NOT to make this a post about my own son, although I can’t promise. LOL!!!!! Now I know every mommy believes their kids are the cutest, so I’ll be featuring a ‘Cutest Kids’ edition periodically.

The innocence and pure joy kids possess is MEANT to be captured. Call me crazy but I want to remember these days; I snap at least one picture a day of my little one. (Notice I said at least one) *insert laugh here*

Disclaimer: Prepare yourself for PURE GORGEOUSNESS below! All shots were taken by yours truly and if you want your child featured in my next ‘Cutest Kids’ post; just contact me : )

You know I had to feature my little man!!! <3

In honor of V-Day!

Children and ‘Couples in Love’ are my absolute favorite to photograph. In honor of Valentine’s Day I’ll showcase couples in this post. In my opinion, couples ‘in love’ exude candidness, truthfulness, sincerity, and the authenticity required for a great shot. It’s not easy to shoot couples that aren’t in love and to be forthright it’s like pulling teeth to get a smile or a kiss, NOT FUN! That is why I emphasize the IN LOVE part : )
During shoots, feeling like a fly on the wall or like I’m invisible tickles my fancy so here are a few couples that just blew me away in front of the camera. To simply capture 2 people in love creates awesome shots. You can’t fake love and their love radiates in their pictures. It does my heart well : )
