Studio Birthday Session| Glitter Birthday Session | Birthday Studio Session| Orlando Birthday Photographer
I've been looking forward to this birthday session for weeks! We absolutely enjoy customizing sessions for families so that each session is unique to each individual. Collaborating with Stephanie, we planned for several outfits for the various backgrounds in studio! Since this was the first professional studio birthday session for Mariah's 7th birthday I wanted to make it extra special! Who doesn't love pink... flowers...sparkle, and glitter? Well, I certainly love all of the above and fun fragrances too! Mariah was initially quiet when we started and at the end of the session she started singing.
We planned for a silver sequin backdrop, a fuchsia pink backdrop, and also a black background for a classic look. Oh! I also forgot to mention the pretty flower background and frilly fabric for the lying down portraits. The fancy silver sequin backdrop would be used with the gold foil number 7 balloon.
Mini in studio birthday sessions are so much fun to capture because they are convenient and we can avoid that Florida humidity. Mini Sessions range from 30 minutes to one hour. I can't wait to share with you Mariah's birthday portraits!
Maternity Photo Session | Maternity Photographer | Outdoor Maternity Photo Ideas | Orlando Maternity Photographer
Excited to share a recent outdoor maternity session that took place in Kissimmee, FL that has a gorgeous lakeside view. The Nguyen's have been long time clients and I've captured their portraits from when their son was in the belly and now they are expecting again! They're having another boy and I can't wait to meet the little guy.
Kim wanted an outdoor maternity shoot that was light and airy. Her maternity dress was light in color and the family color coordinated with light pastel colors for the maternity session that complemented well with the outdoor scenery.
When its time to capture the essence of a pregnancy, its important to have fun and go with the flow. Especially working with young little ones, I'm not able to control every aspect of the session. Working quickly and capturing candid portraits as well as posed portraits would describe a maternity session with young children. The past few times I captured photos of Nolan during the holidays he would say to his parents, "I don't like woman"! He was definitely camera shy even with my zoom lens while I would hide in the bushes!
The blue skies, white sand, and water was absolutely beautiful and gave us gorgeous maternity family photos.
High School Senior Session | Senior Portrait Photographer | Senior Photo Session| Orlando Senior Photographer
Senior Sessions are the most rewarding sessions for me as a photographer because I enjoy providing an experience for my clients. Senior portraits are a time to celebrate the accomplishments over the years in High School and it marks the beginning of early adulthood whether it be going to college or spent working on a trade.
Lauren was open to a fun High School Senior session and she had so many outfits she wanted to bring to the session. I love outfits and different looks! We collaborated and decided that we would have a City look with an Urban feel and we would continue to an area with nature and greenery, and then winter park with a rustic charm!
We started our portrait session with a meeting at the studio and made sure the outfits were ironed and ready for a photo session! Who doesn't want to wear a sexy black dress? We took these portraits in the city of Orlando and we were so scared the swans were going to attack us! They really do attack people when they get too close. The remainder of the session was a breeze and so much fun!
Hello everyone! Its a fabulous day to get back to sharing with you what I've been up to! My current outdoor view is blue skies, and I can see a slight breeze blowing the leaves on these thin tree branches. In a few hours it will be perfect for portraits during the golden hour.
Today I'm sharing professional studio portraits of two fur babies, Yogi and Luna! Miyuki first reached out to me and commented how she favored my style of airy wedding portraits and she wanted to book a session to capture her fur babies. The two yorkies are just too cute! Of course they didn't come in and start smiling, they had to walk around sniff and add a few barks before I could get them to start modeling and showing off their smiles. Fine art pet portraits are rewarding to capture due to the unexpected that can occur during a session. Of course my mindset would be Smile, Stay calm, and snap photos as much as you can. And no erratic movements or the fur babies will get overly excited.
We started off capturing the pet portraits with a silver sequin backdrop, then a floral green fabric backdrop, and my absolute favorite is the black backdrop. A black background makes the subject not only stand out but also provides that timeless classic look.
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.
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!
