#548One final Naples Wedding…Port Royal Club, Naples, Florida

One final Naples Wedding...
This post is a little bittersweet for me.  After 20+ years, I think I can say that this here might be one of the last weddings that I photograph.  For the past few years I've been building up my portrait business and am now moving more into the education realm.  The truth is, that I really fall in love with so many of my brides and the last two weddings in particular [...]

Beautiful Beach Portraiture
I have spent three consecutive years with this sweet and lovely family.  As an artist, I really try and work on capturing images that truly "speak" to my clients.  Beyond the skillfully posed and lit large family portraits, and well beyond the candid shots that capture a moment in time, recently my focus has shifted and I am more and more looking to capture that perfe[...]

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 [...]

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.

#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[...]

#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[...]

Another one of my favorite families who has been with me for years.  These sweet girl's were on some of my first marketing pieces when I moved to Naples.  The calm water and gorgeous sunset is one of the many reasons why I love where I live.  Nothing is prettier to me than this backdrop here....

Well if this wasn't the sweet little shoot.  Who says we can't make it feel like "up north" here in Florida- minus the snow of course.  I love when I can collaborate with clients -- this creative idea was all mom's idea she did a fantastic job styling the kids!  Now if this doesn't put a little Merry in your step I don't know what does.

Golden summer evenings here in Florida are the perfect backdrop when photographing children and family portraits on the beach.  And with children as beautiful as these, the backdrop is merely secondary, but certainly is nice when the weather cooperates to give us a light show to work with.

A handful of beautiful portraits of a family new to Naples.  Summertime is such a great time for me to connect with locals and I am excited that this new family hired me to photograph them in their new "home."
