Lights, camera, action! Professional Headshot photos can take place in studio or outdoors. Depending on the final desired look, each client has a vision and we're here to help them achieve their goals. For Miledis, she contacted me for some in studio professional modeling headshots so she can send it to her Modeling Agency. We decided to do a light and dark background. Two different looks, a smile with teeth and a smile without teeth showing.
A single light set up from Flashpoint was used for these headshots along with natural lighting and a reflector. Hair and makeup was provided by the client and she came ready for her professional headshots. The final images were retouched to look natural because you don't want to submit an image to you agency that best represents you! Of course the lighting also helps with giving you that perfect image!
Traditional Kimono Portrait Session| Orlando Photo Studio | In studio Portraits| Portrait photographer
Mona, the mother of these two gorgeous girls contacted me and expressed to me she wanted simple in studio portraits of the girls in Traditional Japanese Kimonos. I was so excited for this project because Kimonos are gorgeous and Mulan wears one that looks similar to a Japanese Kimono right? I understand she's Chinese but that's the closest experience to a Kimono I've seen in real life!
For every client that steps foot into the photo studio I want to ensure its an experience and not a cookie cutter feel. Each client has their own vision of what they would like to see on their walls. And portraits are family heirloom pieces that are handed down for generations. The challenge was on and I thought about what color background would look best for the colorful Kimonos. The garments are brighter and for younger girls and they get darker in color as the girls get older.
In studio portraits, should we smile or not smile? Serious looks only? I learned that feet have to be together at all times and everything underneath the Kimono must remain hidden and out of sight. So I thought a jumping shot would look really awesome, but then the undergarments would show. So lets just stand cute and smile! The Background was seamless paper from Savage in eggshell. Wonderful color right! Below are just a few in studio portraits from the session. I love the colors and designs.
New Year, new you, and new headshots of course! The Innovation Group of Lake Nona started the New Year with an amazing team photo and some updated realtor headshots of Maddie. You may recognize her from being a realtor in Lake Nona, who has just joined the Innovation Group. These real estate lifestyle photos show off the interior of a home built by Hanover Family Builders.
Their team is constantly growing and will most likely need a new team headshot in a few months. For now we're highlighting Maddie who is a luxury home realtor of the Lake Nona area.
We enjoy capturing professional headshots for realtors in studio, outdoors and on location such as the team photos captured for the Innovation Group. The high resolution images can then be used for business cards, marketing material and all forms of social media.
In studio Holiday Session | Christmas Session | Milk and Cookies Holiday Photos | Orlando Holiday Family Photographer | PJ Pajama Mini Holiday Session
Christmas is only 15 days away and we absolutely can't wait to see Santa! We have chocolate chip cookies and milk jugs ready for Santa! This session was taken here in our studio and Sydney picked out these lovely pajamas from The GAP along with the fuzzy brown warm slippers. Having Kai and Kali in the studio was so much fun, they were full of love, fun and laughter. Seeing the way these two siblings interact with one another overwhelms my heart with so much joy. It makes me think about having a sibling for my little guy!
Holiday Sessions are usually held outdoors, weather permitting. This was taken in the studio. The rustic wood wall was installed by a wonderful carpenter on a weekday at midnight. And it was well worth it! I love the rustic feel of the wall and the versatile looks it provides.
The holidays are near with family fun and cheer! We are just a week away from Thanksgiving and 1 month away from Christmas. With the busy holiday season just around the corner, we have a mental checklist to send out Holiday Cards. And the thought of having family photos on the cards comes to mind! What to wear, where to get the photos taken are thoughts that cross your mind. Then contacting your local photographer to find out they are booked with Weddings, Events and Holiday Minis!
Yes, November and December are the busiest months for photographers. We've had families contact us for the most festive holiday portraits and other families contact us for some great modern portraits that can double as a year round family portrait and also be used in Christmas cards.
This year we had some Outdoor Family Mini Sessions at Santa's Christmas Tree Farm in Eustis, FL. The Madorin's elected to wear vibrant primary colors red and blue with a hint of cream.
Quinceañera Photo Session | Orlando Quince Photographer | Quince Photo ideas | Kraft Azalea Garden Photo Session
A lot of times when I'm photographing a Quince session, bystanders are in awe of the gorgeous dress. And if its a young girl, she thinks its a Disney princess! A Quinceanera is the celebration of a girls 15th Birthday, highlighting and marking the transformation to a Woman.
These portrait sessions are becoming more common and the extravagant reception dinners are now substituted for a family vacation or a new vehicle for the birthday girl.
Janel's mom contacted me months before the session to collaborate on a Quinceanera theme. I found out Janel had the rode horses for a few years and had a strong affinity towards these majestic animals. This gave me an idea! What about a horse photo session? She also wanted to have portraits with lots of greenery and what better place than Kraft Azalea Garden. Janel's dress was customized by Minerva's Bridal, they did an amazing job with the bodice of the dress. It was adorned with gems and sparkled at every angle she turned. I recommended having pictures taken in a casual and then the gown because a horse can be very unpredictable in photos.
In the midst of my daily routine, my sister contacts me and asks me to visit her in Colorado Springs. I thought to myself, wow, I've always wanted to see the mountains and what better reason than to secretly get away with a valid reason! To Colorado Springs within 2 days! I absolutely could not wait for the trip. I purchased a coat with a lining and packed with just a carry on. Half of my suitcase was for my camera equipment.
In Colorado the mountains are an orange clay color. Garden of the Gods is a National Natural Landmark. I've always had a dream of taking photos with a mountain backdrop. And lucky me, we had a family portrait session at Garden of the Gods.
The Stewarts are just a lovely couple and their children were just full of energy and excited for the photos!

Maternity Session | Outdoor Maternity Photographer | Moss Park Photographer | Lake Nona Photographer | Maternity Photographer
As a photographer in Lake Nona, you must know all the awesome locations for portraits. Taking into consideration the time of the photo session and also the location, Moss Park was perfect! This city park location was ideal with its abundance of pine trees and oak trees that make the perfect lush green backdrop for a photo session. Other than the greenery, deer and sand cranes are often spotted during the day and can also be a great addition to any portrait session. Also, did I mention they have a campground, hiking trails, and water activities as well! With a car packed full of photography equipment and maternity session props, it was time to capture some amazing connections. I did wish I could have my dog tag along with my photo sessions, but of course it’s not always ideal.
Thank you so much for taking the time to check out our blog! We love sharing with you our experiences and we hope you're able to enjoy a glimpse of their special day as well!
