#543 Mother & Daughter Portraiture {Naples, Florida}

#543 Mother & Daughter Portraiture {Naples, Florida}
Recent images from a session at The Ritz-Carlton where we focused on #motherdaughterportraits.  This is the 3rd year I've had the oppertunity to photograph this beautiful little girl.   Sometimes at this age, my favorite images are the first of the session, when kids may be a little more pensive and timid.  That initial shyness often provides amazing oppertunity to ca[...]

#530 Family Beach Portraits {Naples, Florida}
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....

#528 O' Christmas Tree {Naples, Florida}
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.

#527 How does a photograph make you feel? {Naples, Florida}
I don't guarantee that my photographs will always be perfect, but I do promise that they will be real.  Evoking emotion is what photography is all about for me.  I want to FEEL something when I am looking at a photo.  I want to stir something in me and certainly my client.  Depending on the image, I can feel empathy, compassion, sadness, joy, love or in this case-- I [...]

#518 Children's Studio Photography {Naples, Florida}
I recently had a client send me this ad and told me that she wanted to emulate the feel of this same feel for her boys.  Within a a week of showing me this idea, she had ordered the chair and we were in the studio working with her sweet boys.  I know I may be a little biased, but I think we knocked it out of the park!  Maybe we should show it to Bloom for next year's [...]

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."

#500 Where the Wild Things Are

#500 Where the Wild Things Are
"We'll eat you up, we love you so."   I've always loved the book, Where The Wild Things Are and was inspired to use the concept for my son's shoot.  This little guy is mine which makes these photos even more dear to me than most.  He hated the crown and overall being photographed, so I bribed him with no less than two whole Kit Kats, and it took four (yes you read tha[...]

#463 Artistic Children's Portraiture {Naples, Florida}
I could eat these two up they were so sweet and loving with each other.  He made her laugh and she made him feel so proud.  What a gift to feel the love and support from a sibling at such a young age. Warm afternoon sunlight, a tiny Burberry dress and a handsome 8 year old boy made for the perfect afternoon.
