#542 Naples Beach Portraiture {Naples, Florida}
One part of my job that I really love is finding the threads that help my client's engage, with me and with each other.  It's like a mystery, and I only have a limited of time to uncover the secrets.  I work to find these commonalities whether my clients are 5 or 85.  These little siblings didn't need a whole lot of coaxing to engage with each other because they were [...]

#541 Children's Beach Portraiture {Naples, Florida}
Beautiful portraits of this sweet family who braved the cold last week while visiting Naples.  I ended up shooting a bit more candid style of work than typical, but am very happy with  what was captured.  I especially like seeing these images in B&W.  It gives the images a real timeless feel.

#539 Creating lasting imagery; Mother & Child Portraiture {Naples, Florida}
There are thousands are impactful photographs that we all come across on social media every month, every week, even every hour.  But for me, there are a few images that I always come back to.  What's interesting for me, is that all the photos that really resonate in my mind are Mother & Child portraits.  These images are burned into my brain as some of the best "r[...]

#537 Using Natural Backlight {Naples, Florida}
When working outside in bright light, I find it helpful to try and keep the sun to my client's back, creating a soft even shadow on the front of their faces.  By positioning my clients with their back's to the sun, I am able to keep their faces evenly light and am preventing harsh shadows on any one person's face.  This is especially helpful for me here in Florida, wh[...]

#536 Benefits of changing up your location during your photo session {Naples, Florida}
Today I want to discuss the benefits of shooting in various locations during your photo sessions.  Let me start by saying that moving locations is not always super easy, so I tend to not offer this option unless I'm working with a small groups.  Changing up the location is absolutely perfect for a High School Senior or maybe a small group of 2-3 siblings.  Changing th[...]

Hello January!  I am still posting work from Thanksgiving week--eeek!  Not a great way to start the New Year...behind already! I have to say, as much as I love Lily Pulitzer, there is something about Black and White photographs on the beach that is simply so timeless.   I have been working a ton with off-camera lighting recently and loving the result.  Here my ligh[...]

#533 Family Beach Portraits {Naples, Florida)
This little muffin was amazingly alert and happy for her debut on the beach.  These clients are a great example of how to best use a little pop of color.  The baby would have potentially gotten lost had she also been dressed in white, like mom and dad, but by dressing her in an outfit that is a nice contrast to the parent's clothes, she really stands out and shines in[...]
