Palm Beach Maternity Photographer | Sam + Jared {Awaiting Baby}

Baby bump numero two for the weekend!  We headed to the coast for this session and after Hurricane Irene made her debut on Thursday, it was surprisingly {amazingly} beautiful there today.

I've known Jared for ... 10+ years {I'm not going to show my age....}  and when I found out him and Sam were expecting I gave them an offer they couldn't refuse for maternity pictures :)  Such a classy, beautiful couple and extremely easy to photograph.   They made it easy for me tonight, for sure.  I got to play in the tall beach grass I love so much {sometimes too much....} and they got to incorporate a few props into the session that have family meaning to them.

Big time thank you to my friend Sally who carried my heavy equipment tonight and last night.  I just don't have enough arms sometimes...

Now on to the pictures!

Captiva Island Photographer | Sanibel/Captiva Sunset

Two of my favorites and I headed west for the weekend, to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life.  We stayed on Ft Myers Island in a great resort that was right on the beach, had an awesome Tiki bar, and a very relaxing feel.  Saturday we made the short drive to Sanibel and Captiva Islands for the sunset and it was worth it.  So beautiful!  I would love to extend my wedding photography services to destination weddings at all three islands, I saw some amazing spots that a beautiful bride would look amazing in front of.


Here's a sunset picture I took....I shot on the low side of the exposure scale just to get all the beautiful low lights of the sky.  I've never watched the sun set on the west coast before, and I will for sure do it again.  There were about 40 people on the beach and as it set everyone got quiet and just watched the beauty.  I loved it :)



Not that I have any qualification to review/critique local attractions but here's what the three of us felt:

Outrigger Beach Resort: very friendly staff, beautiful water front location, slightly older style but fit in with the rest of the island.

Zushi Zushi: A sushi restaurant on the "strip" and delicious.  Even my friend who doesn't like sushi found something she could eat there.  We actually wen't twice while there.

Alligators Tails & Ales: A sports bar with amazing burgers that we hit up after our trip to Sanibel.  Yummy!


Great trip, next time we'll stay longer!



Palm Beach Infant Photographer | Ella {3 months}

Ohhhhh this baby!  She smiles all day long and as soon as the camera comes out she's a diva!  No smiles, but we'll try for one next time.  We took Ella to the beach for her first outdoor photo session and then we went back to mom and dad's to finish the session in doors.  I just love her tutu!  Mom made Ellas headband which matched perfectly with the tutu.
