Diana’s Slideshow is ready!!!

I am so excited and happy with the results of this slideshow.
The song I choose is by Enya, who I love. It is such an inspirational song; perfect for the location and attire of this shoot.
As I was playing it, I got chills in the intricate parts where the instruments punch through.

Diana, you were amazing and so much fun to work with. You are a beautiful young lady with a brilliant JOURNEY ahead of you.

Kaelyn's Second Birthday!!!

Today I was invited to my friend Kelly’s house to celebrate her little girls second birthday.
Kaelyn’s little red dress in a halter style was to die for. It even had a little hat to match.
The weather, music and company were great and the paella and cake were also incredible.

I'm sorry; did you ask where my husband was instead of been with me at the party?
Well, he was playing golf with his best friend. They played good today, he said; I'm just happy he didn’t forget to put sun screen on. I love parties and he loves playing golf.

Here are a couple of photos I took with my point and shoot camera.

Happy Birthday Mommy!!!

My mom’s official birthday was Friday, but she wanted to have a romantic dinner for two with my dad, so today I decided to go out with her on Saturday.

We went out shopping; I even led my mom inside the maternity store Mimi’s.
NO, not for me, but I always get asked what kind of clothing do I recommend for a maternity session, so I was looking at this particular store for cute outfits for my moms to be.
Mimi’s sure does have some cute stuff ladies!!!

After a long day of shopping we had yummy dinner at P.F. Changs (We have to wait 1:10 minutes to be seated!) but it was worth it.
The banana spring rolls desert was delish!

I love spending time with my mom whenever possible, and YES, she still gives me plenty of advice whether I want it or not.
Happy Birthday Mom, I love you!!! Mua, Mua.

I took these photos when my brother and his family visited us last December.
My mom, dad and my beautiful nephew Filito.

And the winner of the boudoir session is…

Congratulation Melissa L.!!!

First, I wanted to thank all the ladies that enter the contest. It was a very tough decision I had to make, but after reading the essay part of the entries time and time again; I decided that Melissa was the perfect candidate for the session. Her essay was very heartfelt and her overall message is that women need to feel comfortable in their own skin and to embrace their bodies. Just by reading her entry I know that this will be a great shoot. And when she wrote “My future hubby would really appreciate it… I mean REALLY” You just gotta love that!!!
To all the other ladies that enter the contest, please don’t feel bad. I will be giving a special discount to all who enter the contest.
Please e-mail me for more details.
Again, congratulations Melissa L. I will be contacting you with more details. I can’t wait!!!

Soon to be Parents!!!

Wind, wind, go away! I thought today was going to be a cloudy and rainy day. Instead we got a sunny and super windy day.
Natalie and Enrique were such good sports and so patient with the weather that we had a great time shooting their portraits.
We even had time to stop at Lime and eat Mexican. You know the baby was hungry :o)

Early congratulation on baby Mateo and I hope to see you guys soon.
Enjoy the little teasers.

Introducing Baby Sophia!!!

I can finally publish some of my favorite photos from my session with Sophia.
She was 3 weeks at the time of the shoot. Even though she was laying on her belly, she had the strength to turn her head. I also found it so cool how she would follow mom across the room. Babies at Sophia’s age change from day to day, so I am very happy to have captured some moments before her first month.

Wohoo!!! I am really excited to show you this slideshow. I hope you love it as much as I do.
I know many people are not Celine Dion fans, but I just love her voice and I thought about this song to be perfect for this slideshow.

I have no doubt that it will be an amazing wedding. I can’t wait!!!

Thank you Chrissy for letting us be part of such a memorable part of your life.

The last birthday entry of the night.

My husband Favio surprised me with dinner reservations at BALEEN (the Grove Isle.)
A full moon made the water of Biscayne Bay sparkled and low lighting in the restaurant evoked an ambiance of romance. Exquisite food, on an incredible setting, it was the perfect recipe for an amazing evening.
With out a doubt it has been a great day.
Have a great night everyone!!!

Birthday at the office!!!

This is a quick photo my husband took of me and my beautiful baby Bella.
We had Italian for lunch, 2 cakes (strawberry short cake and chocolate) and a bunch of presents!
This is a great way to start a birthday celebration for the entire week, if not the entire month.
And YES that is a tiara on my head!!! I told you I am being treated like a QUEEN!!!.

Happy Birthday to me!!!!

Should I reveal my age? No way!!!!!!!! I just wanted to say, thank you to me husband Favio for preparing something special for me tonight. It’s a surprise, so I will share with you all tomorrow.
I hope I get lots of presents… just kidding Las Vegas was present enough. Maybe one more though… a little one at least. :)

I know is going to be a great year, so let the good times roll!!!

Diana’s Sweet Sixteen Portraits!!!

We met up with Diana today and had a blast shooting her portrait photos. She has a beautiful elegance about her that comes from being an accomplished ballet dancer and pageant beauty. Diana will pursue ballet professionally, but could also be an amazing model.
Diana you are a natural!!!

Enjoy a teaser, I will post more photos later on.

Baby Sophia!

Sophia is an adorable baby girl that I had the pleasure to photograph the Saturday before our trip to Las Vegas. I will soon be working on her photos, but I couldn't resist the temptation to put one photo up for everyone to see.
Martha and David you have a gorgeous daughter. Congratulations!!!
