A Matheson Hammock Park Engagement Session: Jessica and Alan

A Matheson Hammock Park Engagement Session: Jessica and Alan

Jessica and I first started chatting on Instagram, when she was looking into doing a couples’ session. Since she is currently living the life in Bali (not exactly close, is she?!), she wanted formal photos of her and her boyfriend, Alan, while she was in town. Little did she know that she would become engaged shortly after reaching out to me! So what was supposed to be a Matheson Hammock Park couples’ session became a Matheson Hammock Park engagement session!

Because we all love a love story …

This adorable couple met online fourteen years ago. You read that right. Fourteen, yes, 14 years ago! They met online strictly as friends, especially since Jessica was and has always lived in Indonesia (so jealous!). After conversing day after day, Jessica and Alan became great friends. But you can only get to know someone so much online … Alan persuaded her to visit the United States so they could finally meet in person.

That trip sealed their fate. These two were not only best friends, but also soulmates.

What Happened Next???

Jessica and Alan continued their long distance relationship, but not without making plans for their future. As mentioned before, shortly after reaching out to me was New Year’s Eve and this is when Alan proposed. They started off 2018 with a bang!

The Future

Well, obviously there’s a wedding in the future!!!! The wedding planning is a work in progress with Jessica still living in Bali but she’ll be back here in no time. Last time she and I spoke, Alan was biting at the bit to speed up the process (haha!). There will be a wedding in the near future and I look forward to seeing more of these two lovelies!

A Dirty Thirty Cake Smash in Boca Raton

A Dirty Thirty Cake Smash in Boca Raton

Growing older doesn’t mean we should cease the celebration! In fact, we should party harder than ever. I mean, we have lived this long, struggled this hard, and still look this good! Isis has the right idea with her Dirty Thirty cake smash in Boca Raton.

We have every right to celebrate and celebrate big, with cake, champagne, and all things that make you happy! For Isis, she wanted all things pink, with a yummy cake, popping champagne, a sign representing her life thus far, and dancing around in a pink tutu (and she looks amazing doing it!).

What’s a Cake Smash, You Ask?

For those of you who don’t know or haven’t heard of a cake smash, it became a big thing for first birthdays. It’s when a baby turns one and experiences his or her birthday for the first time … which also normally means, cake for the first time.

These pictures are hilarious! The 1-year old doesn’t know what to do with the cake and the parents usually have to assist. Insert cake and icing in mouth and that’s when the funny expressions start: confusion, fascination, then either love or hate!

Cake smashes for adults are slightly different, obviously! We have the benefit of choosing our own flavors and colors, and we can definitely feed ourselves. But the best part is when you let loose and dig in! Who needs forks or plates?! We have our hands and mouths! We’re allowed to get a little dirty. It is our day and our cake after all!

Enjoy!

A Wintry Fort Lauderdale Family Session

A Wintry Fort Lauderdale Family Session

Okay, so let’s be honest here. Florida doesn’t see winter. Well, at least not the type of winter that you picture: white grounds, snow falling, bare trees … but hey, it’s still winter and this blog post is about a wintry Fort Lauderdale family session. And while you may not see snow or icicles on bare trees, we did have cool wind, white sand, and lots of blue (water, not ice, that is).

Celebrate!

The Olin family had much to celebrate about! For one thing, their entire family was together. But more importantly, it was grandma’s 75th birthday! This session, and the trip to Fort Lauderdale, was her big birthday gift!

So Much Fun!

We had so much fun photographing and playing on the beach. T’was the night before Christmas and all through the beach, was a family posing while the seagulls screech. Okay, maybe should I stick to my day job. I never claimed to be a writer, or a poet! Although, it is quite true. The seagulls kept photo-bombing our session (you’ll see them make an appearance in a shot or two below, but they definitely made appearances in the majority of our shots).

A Traditionally Beautiful Fort Lauderdale Family Session

A Traditionally Beautiful Fort Lauderdale Family Session

Traditional or not, I always love a good Fort Lauderdale family session. In this case, we went the more traditional route, as the Stevensons family wanted a specific look. (That’s okay, I still snuck in a few candid shots!)

Who doesn’t love the beach?!

We all woke up bright and early and met up at the beach. The Stevensons come here yearly to celebrate the New Year. Since the eldest child is about to run off to college, it was crucial for at least one more traditional New Year vacation as a family.

“You never know what the future holds, or where my life may take me.”

This may be the last time everyone is all together in the same place for a while. Because of this, mom and dad (moreso mom, than dad haha!) wanted updated family portraits.

I had the pleasure of doing this for them and taking the below pictures:

A Red Reef Park Family Session | Boca Raton, Florida

A Red Reef Park Family Session

Like most families, this one can rarely be seen all together in the same location. But when they are, it’s a reason to celebrate! What better way to celebrate that by having a Red Reef Park Family Session?

Session Time!

When speaking to Victoria before our session, I knew this was going to be a lot of fun. It was a mini-reunion with cuties involved! How could it not?!

With beautiful afternoon light and lots of room for the girls to play, it was the perfect session.

In between our traditional poses, everyone took turns with the beach balls and playing with the little ladies. This is something I always recommend. It is so difficult for your little ones to sit still, let alone smile and focus on the photographer for long periods of time. Having minutes in between pictures allows them to let loose and have some fun of their own. Plus, the candid pictures of kids being kids are the best! Capturing them in their element is something I personally am passionate about!

I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know this wonderful family. They were the sweetest and so easy to photograph!

Enjoy!
