Meet Baylee | Sunrise Senior Session

Hobe Sound, Fl

Last week I woke up before the sunrise to get myself ready to meet Baylee, a senior at Jensen Beach High School. She has been friends with Julia, featured here, and wanted to have her session at the same location; Hobe Sound Nature Center. Of course, I was excited, it's such a beautiful place for portraits, especially at sunrise. 

I think Baylee might have had a few laughs at me as I attempted to squat down into poses with my 8 month pregnant belly while carrying my reflector and camera :) It's ok, I laughed at myself! Finally I came to the realization that it would be better if I talked her through the poses rather than try to show her! 

Either way, her portraits came out gorgeous and she rocked it out! Here are some of my favorites! Enjoy!

Meet Julia | Fall Senior Session

Hobe Sound, FL 

It was one of the coolest mornings that we have had all fall season, here in South Florida. As a Floridian, any drop in temperature below 77 degrees is considered cold :) The good thing: it was a perfect time for photos. 

Julia met me early in the morning for a sunrise photo session. I've shot so many times during the late evening golden hour and have loved the results. But there is just something different when shooting at sunrise that I love. We lucked out with a perfect ratio of sun/clouds, where the clouds were just enough to filter the golden light of the day. 

Julia is a senior at Jensen Beach High School and will be graduating in 2017. After she graduates she would love to go to UCF where she plans on pursuing a degree in nursing. I can already tell just by my short interaction with her that she will make an excellent nurse. She's got a very calming a sweet spirit :) She could also make a career at modeling--she's gorgeous!! 

Here are a few of my favorites from our shoot!

Meet Allison | Fall Senior Session

You may or may not remember Allison! She was featured in this post with the lifestyle fashion clothing line All For Color. It was so great to work with her again on this shoot! We got some AMAZING light out at the beach, The House of Refuge on Hutchinson Island. When I say the weather couldn't have been more perfect, I truly to do mean it. I've been so grateful for these sunny evenings that we have had, they make for such gorgeous portraits :)

I've been meaning to blog these images! So excited to finally share them!!

Meet Julia | Fall Senior Session

Stuart, Florida

Julia and I had a BLAST at our shoot! She admitted to me that she felt a little awkward in front of the camera, and we both agreed that pretending we were just taking selfies was the best way to make light of it :) 

We shot in downtown Stuart, particularly Sailor's Return area. I've done several shoots here and love the light that it has to offer during golden hour. One thing I absolutely loved about Julia was her HAIR! Most girls would do anything for curls like those! 

Here are a few of my favorite shots of Julia. I'm starting off this post with the first image being my absolute favorite! The light was stunning and the pop of pink worked so well with this shot!

Morning Light Portraits: Downtown Stuart

The best part about the summer time is the SUN! I love spending time outdoors and I especially love outdoor high school senior portrait sessions! 

Vanessa and I had an early start to the day, as we had discussed meeting up at 8:00am. I wanted to take advantage of the benefits of shooting in the morning light. It was important to me that we start our shoot early enough to ensure that the light would not be too harsh. 

After having the inevitable cup of coffee first thing in the morning, I headed to downtown Stuart to meet Vanessa. The sunlight was gently streaming over the St.Lucie River and by the time we started our shoot, it had made it's way over the horizon. It was pretty tranquil :)

We began our shoot on the boardwalk and eventually headed for cover once the sun got higher in the sky. I must say, shooting in the morning is much more challenging than shooting in the evening. I somehow feel like the quality of light is more intense in the morning than it is towards the late afternoon, but maybe that's just me? I don't know. . . What I do know, is that I love the challenge and I love the feeling of starting out the day with a photo session!

High School Senior Shoot: Graduation Announcements

Hey guys! 

Quick post here about a really great product I found through minted.com. These graduation announcements were from a recent shoot I did with a local high school senior. You can see the photos from the shoot here

Anyways, his Mom was wanting to get some graduation announcements made so I went to my favorite online stationery store and sought out to find the perfect announcement! Behold, it's thick card stock and quality envelope ;-) Being that this was my first time purchasing this type of card, I was pleased (and so was his Momma).
