Harley Quinn

My daughter said she wanted to be Harley Quinn for Halloween this year.

Actually, I think I may have heard my husband talk about it last year and perhaps she mentioned it before too. BUT, you know how kids are… they want to be one thing and then they want to be another and then they change their minds AGAIN….. and then, there you are with 3 different costumes…. I KNOW YOU CAN RELATE!

Anyway, this year we went for it and I must say, she makes a REALLY good Harley Quinn!

To be honest, I had no idea who Harley Quinn was, I had only seen some photos. I did a little google search and found info on comic books and was happy to see there was an actual movie! I ended up renting Suicide Squad on Amazon Prime so my girls and I can watch it. Great movie! AND now I know who she is.

Here are some of my favorite Harley Quinn quotes…

“It soon became clear to me the Joker was actually a tortured soul.
Yes, I admit it. As unprofessional as it sounds, I had fallen in love with my patient. Pretty crazy huh?”

” I’m rubber, you’re glue, whatever you say bounces off me and makes a six-inch-diameter exit wound in you.”

” I’ll never understand why Superman wears the same outfits every day.”

“I’ve made so many mistakes and there’s no one left who believes in me.”

“If I’m mad enough to skip the tears and go straight to laughing, you better run cause I’m about to lose my shit.”

“I’ll burn the world just to see the fire in your eyes.

“Sometimes the only way to stay sane is to go a little crazy”

Princess Mya

Love this spunky girl! She’s always funny and so full of energy.


Princess Alexis

Every parent should have a few good portraits of their babies at different stages of their life. Wouldn’t you agree?

I love how these came out. Can’t wait to see them blown up and hung in the house. I think they would look fantastic on acrylic.

((Soooo… that’s my kid on the left who decided to crash her shoot. They remind me of those girls in that video from the 80s… Robert Palmer Simply Irresistible hahaha!))


Glitter Session Fun

Who’s bright idea was it to cover everything in GLITTER? Ok so maybe it was mine but LOOK ! Sooooo much fun with these cuties! Authentic smiles! Successful session!



Congratulations big brother! Now you’ll have to share all your toys with your baby brother. It might be a little hard to get used to at first, but I trust that you’ll do the right thing. Patience <3


Miami Kids Portraiture

“Princess Toothless”

I decided we needed a more formal portrait of little Ms. Toothless and then it was decided that her mommy’s accessories were needed, hence the cute little giggle : )

Valentino bracelet and Christian Louboutin bag for this princess. She’s definitely a Miami girl haha!


Zoey turns One

My baby turns 1 !

She is the cutest Tibetan Terrier I’ve ever met and amazing addition to our family.

She is super playful with kids and dogs. Has really good social and cuddling skills. Loves to sleep in cave like areas… her favorite is her crate even though she’s welcome anywhere in the house. She’s also a very fast runner! Must be those long legs of hers. We love her to pieces and she loves us right back. We couldn’t be any happier with our little princess.

If you want to see previous photos of Zoey….

Here’s Zoey when we first got her…..

St. Augustine, Vilano Beach

“You never know how many friends you have until you rent a beach house”

Love this quote!!

My sister and her family rented a beach house and suddenly, we all decided to crash haha!

On our last morning, my little one was tossing and turning around 6am so I took the opportunity to ask her if she would like to watch the sunrise with me. So happy she said yes because I wouldn’t have gone without her and I wouldn’t have snapped this photo.

She then decided that we should be in some photos together. Even though I was in my pajamas, I agreed to go for it. I had my tripod in the car, so I set up my camera and we started spinning around.


Pregnancy shoots are a must!

Being pregnant is, in my opinion, the most amazing time in your life. It is a time of celebration and of anticipation as you prepare to meet your little bundle of joy. It’s a time where you become strong – stronger than you ever thought you could possibly be. During this time, you create your initial bond with your child that will continue throughout your entire lives.

There are very few women who actually feel like they are beautiful while they are pregnant – especially during the first pregnancy.; However, the miracle of pregnancy is a beautiful thing. Swollen feet, stretch marks, and hormone changes aside – you are growing a real live human being inside of you. All of those side effects come from different things your body has to do to help nourish and protect your baby.

You are beautiful, and you should take the time to celebrate these changes and this amazing moment in your life. These photos will be a great gift to pass down to your child as an heirloom of your first memories with them. This is something they can treasure forever.

Our new baby, Zoey (Tibetan Terrier)

Hi! I’m Zoey!

Today is one week with our new baby Zoey. She is a Tibetan Terrier born in August, 2018.

Our house was not the same since Lilibean (shihtzu) and Buddy (pekingese) passed away last year. Coming home to an empty house was kind of sad.

My kids wrote letters to Santa asking for a puppy and on Christmas morning, the last gift they opened was a letter and photos of Zoey. The letter said that he (Santa) found the PERFECT dog for our family and that we could pick her up the day we got back from our winter trip.

Daddy drove to Orlando and came back with this sweet little thing. She is super soft, cuddly and smart. She’s learning things rather quickly and we couldn’t be more proud of her.

You’ll be seeing a lot more of my new daughter! And I do mean…. A LOT!

Christmas Shoot | South Florida Photographer

Thanksgiving was amazing, and now I’m ready for Christmas!  Aaaaaaand so are they…..  Cutest little guys!

Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year! Everything about it! The preparations, the home baked cookies, the decorations throughout the city, family time, traveling, and so much more!  We picked out a tree yesterday (Sat after Thanksgiving).  We put it up and giving it a day or two so it can settle in.   Can’t wait to tell Alexa to play some Amazon Christmas music and start decorating it!
