Bosch Services

Bosch Services

Bosch Services host regional meetings every year at different locations. These meetings consist of guest speakers, a vendor fair, a reception, breakout sessions, and ending with a raffle drawing.

This year, two of their regional meetings were hosted in Fort Lauderdale‘s Bahia Mar in early June and in Las Vegas‘s Hard Rock Hotel in late June.

I was honored to be hired by CiEvents and Bosch Services to cover these two events.

Who is Bosch?

“In 1886, Robert Bosch founded the “Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering” in Stuttgart. This was the birth of today‘s globally operating company.”

For Bosch, “sustainability means securing the company’s long-term success while at the same time protecting the natural resources on which present and future generations depend. Ecology is thus a driver of innovation. At the same time, we demonstrate a particularly high level of corporate social responsibility — both within the company and beyond.”

“Bosch develops innovative solutions that facilitate new mobility offerings. Whether for private or commercial vehicles, multimodal transportation services, fleet management, or smart transport infrastructure, Bosch brings together vehicle technology, the data cloud, and services to offer complete mobility solutions.”

“Bosch offers innovative products and services for industry and trades.”

Society of the Four Arts Engagement Session in Palm Beach

Society of the Four Arts Engagement Session in Palm Beach

There is nothing more romantic or beautiful than a Society of the Four Arts Engagement Session in Palm Beach. And when your couple is as in love and in sync with each other like Andrea and David, you’re destined to have an amazing engagement session!

Going to the Chapel … But First …

Andrea and David have been together for what seems like an eternity. Well, only since 2012. But a lot happens in 6 years, such as school, jobs, relocations, and yes, an engagement!

After 6 years, these two are ready to go to the chapel (or St. Sebastian Catholic Church).

David currently resides in Jacksonville for work, while Andrea lives locally, not only working night shifts at a hospital, but also going to school. Talk about a chaotic schedule!

Despite their crazy schedules, the two are planning their 2019 wedding in Fort Lauderdale. Having been there and done that, planning a wedding when one or both parties are not around is no easy task.

You’d never know though. These two always seem to be on the same page and are conquering each vendor and task together. Stressed? If they are, I couldn’t tell you!

A Hidden Gem

Living in Florida has its perks. For instance, all the hidden gems you can find. Just when you think you can’t find any new locations to do a session, your clients suggest one and it’s like a whole new world has opened up!

The Society of the Four Arts is this hidden gem I am referring to. You already know that I’m a huge fan of lush greenery so need I say more?! This venue not only has that, but fountains, beautiful architecture, colorful flowers, gorgeous archways, and statues throughout the entire garden.

“The Four Arts Botanical Gardens are demonstration gardens designed in 1938 to help new arrivals to South Florida who were struggling with gardening in the state’s tropical climate. Seven demonstration gardens illustrate different styles of landscaping and information on drought and heat tolerant plants.”

Moving onto our engagement session and the beauty that ensues…

Sugar Sand Park Family Session in Boca Raton

Sugar Sand Park Family Session

I first met Tamara in our FemCity group and she had expressed interest in doing a Sugar Sand Park Family Session. She not only wanted updated family photos, but even more importantly, she wanted it as a gift for her and her husband’s 10-year wedding anniversary. What a great way to celebrate!

Meet Tamara

Tamara is an amazing realtor whose “ability to be caring and focused allow me to help my buyer and sellers achieve their goals.

Other than my family, my customers are my primary concern. Those same people say I’m tenacious driven and focus. I’m not so sure about that but it may come from the wonderful upbringing my parents gave me.
As a very successful business women I decided to take my business life in a new direction and have become a realtor specializing in the Boca Raton, Coconut Creek and surrounding areas.
Your real estate investment, probably the largest investment in your life time should be taken with extreme seriousness, I will guide with the highest level of professionalism you can find.

I understand that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s a life-changing experience. That’s why as a real estate professional I’m dedicated to providing exceptional, personalized service for all of my clients. I take great pride in the relationships I build and always work relentlessly on the client’s behalf to help them achieve their real estate goals.”

Location Location Location

It’s never easy to pinpoint a location for a special session. However, the first question I always ask is “what kind of backdrop do you see your family in?” Options include: beach, garden, forest, field, city, etc.

For this family, the Aristy family wanted a lot of greenery.

Then comes the next question: is there any place in particular that you love or means something to you?

Their love and often visit Sugar Sand Park in Boca Raton. And we couldn’t have picked a better day for their Sugar Sand Park family session!

Lights! Camera! Action!

Family sessions can be nerve-wracking and stressful.

“What to wear?”

“Is everyone ready?”

“Did we forget anything?”

And so on and so forth.

But I don’t think the Aristy family had any issues. Or if they did, I had no idea. They arrived early and in great spirits!

When I asked the girls if they were ready and excited to have their picture taken, they both grinned and said “YES!” I loved the enthusiasm!

And so our beautiful and fun Sugar Sand Park family session began …

Sabrina and Derek’s Engagement Session at Hillsboro Inlet

Sabrina and Derek’s Engagement Session at Hillsboro Inlet

For three consecutive weeks, it had been raining here in South Florida. Daily rain, with dark clouds, no sun. So when Sabrina and Derek told me they were coming from Texas and wanted a photo session, all I could do was pray. Pray that somehow, magically, the rain would pause and we’d get a chance to do our sunrise session. Not only for my sake, but for the sake of this couple who were coming from out of state. Not only did the sun peek out, but it also gave us beautiful sky colors!!! We had a gorgeous sunrise engagement session at Hillsboro Inlet, and I am in love with the images!

S+D

High School sweethearts, these two have been together for eight years. Now married for two years, Sabrina and Derek take a trip every year to celebrate their anniversary. This year, they decided to board a cruise ship out of Fort Lauderdale and head to the Caribbean. But not before doing a romantic session on land!

Rise and Shine!

Little did I know, Sabrina and Derek had just gotten into town the day of session … at 2 AM. Our session started at 6:20 AM. Meaning, they didn’t get any sleep.

But I never would have known! They arrived early, in great spirits, and such a beautiful and sweet couple. Not to mention, so in love. I had to do very little posing since they were so natural and good together.

I’ll Always Be Your Little Girl: A Mommy and Me Session

I’ll Always Be Your Little Girl: A Mommy and Me Session

There’s always a special bond between a mom and her child, between the 9 months of being inside mommy’s belly and, well, all phases of growing up.

Amber, of Oh My! Occasions, and her mom have always had a tight bond. Although there is quite a physical distance between them now, that closeness hasn’t waned. Since her mom’s birthday and Mother’s Day are back-to-back, Amber reached out wanting to gift her mother with a Mommy and Me Session at Mizner Park in Boca Raton.

What a stinking cute idea – I loved it and I was so in! And to top it all off, it was to be a surprise!

The Plan

Okay, so the plan was that her mother and her were going to get pampered for a networking event. They were to meet me at Mizner and head out from there. Little did she know that I’d be hiding in the bushes to catch her reaction when she found out what this really was!

Mommy and Me Session | Florida PhotographerWhen she realized what was going on, she burst into happy tears.Mommy and Me Session | Florida PhotographerWith Amber’s help, we dried those tears and got her laughing.Mommy and Me Session | Florida PhotographerMommy and Me Session | Florida Photographer

Two-Part Session

This session was to play two roles: 1. To update mom’s headshots and profile pictures (i.e. LinkedIn and Facebook). And look just how beautiful this lady is. She should definitely have her picture taken more often!Mommy and Me Session | Florida PhotographerReason number 2: To get some recent pictures of mom and daughter.
