Coming Soon: One Step Closer

There is something baking in the oven. It's all over facebook and many of you may of been directed here because of certain posters that have been circling amongst friends. I want to just say a few words so it doesn't feel like top secret but also has you wanting to come back to check it out. Weeks ago I sat with a friend and talked for hours about everything that makes us who we are... our looks, likes, personality, preferences, insecurities, habits, friendships, and situations that have shaped us into the person that we now have come to be. This started with the plan of getting 'one step closer' to my friends and like all great ideas... it has turned into something bigger that I am so so happy with. Can't wait to share! WOOP WOOP! ;) Stay tuned guys.

"Let the rain come down"

"When the tide goes out at the seashore, it usually leaves behind a scattered trail of small treasures. What came with the waves may range from a collection of shells to starfish to bits and pieces of things that people lost in the rushing water... Although the tide goes out, it always comes back in again." After reading this last night I had a big smile on my face. It gave me something to think about as I tried to fall asleep. This morning I really didn't plan on blogging so early.. but I just wanted to share that little tidbit. We shouldn't worry about the end of things. The falling apart of things. The being left behind. Because the same way it was all once abundant and put together... it shall all happen again.
I am blogging this session next. It's one of my favorite senior sessions I have ever shot... come back soon to see! Enjoy this somewhat rainy-to-be weekend. You all know that I will probably escape the indoors to go play... I am definitely looking forward to it! I have a session planned for today... as long as the rain steers clear to before or after I will be only dandy camper. :) Hoping for some kind of miracle. Tootles!

little miss Lexie Grey | Miami Newborn Photographer

My most recent newborn sessions have been such a dream. Working with newborn babies has been one of my favorite aspects of my work as a photographer... I have the patience and grace to somehow understand their silent language. Well, silent when they are sleeping that is. :) Meet Lexi. The moment her parents said her name would be Lexi I automatically thought of Lexie Grey. [Character from my favorite show - Grey's Anatomy. Turns out I shot an Addison Montgomery last year and now it's Lexi's turn. I wonder if I'll ever have a Meredith. Haha. :)] I enjoyed playing with her so much. She was absolutely perfect. Perfect perfect.
Something else that was quite perfect was the light in their home. I was so happy to move around between the rooms and still achieve exactly the looks I wanted. Don't these parents look smitten? Lexi has had Daddy's heart wrapped around her finger from the first moment he laid eyes on her. And she didn't even break a sweat doing so. That little angelic face wins anyone over.
Thank you both for allowing me to come and photograph your little one. I look forward to our next shoot together when little Lexi isn't quite so little anymore. Summer is in full swing over here in Miami... we really don't ever see much of a change between seasons... but SUMMER... oh yeah. THE HEAT IS ON! (Laughing to myself because yeah the Miami Heat are definitely kicking butt right now.) Oh I know we lost last night's game... but you gotta hand it to them - awesome awesome team. Woop woop! We are mid-week, only a couple more days till the weekend folks. Enjoy!
