February has been a busy month, and we’ve been catching up on blogging our latest shoots and news. I’m thrilled to FINALLY share Holly & Jon’s beautiful wedding at the Wedgewood in San Clemente! I adore everything about this wedding and this couple. The details were beautiful, the ceremony was touching, and the love between Holly & Jon is so inspiring. It began with friendship and grew to a deep commitment to one another and to their faith. Words are inadequate for describing the love they have, but those who know them will understand what I mean. I’m so happy to have met them and to have witnessed such a sweet celebration! Congratulations Holly & Mike!

A couple weeks ago, I worked with pinup model Dianna Prince to shoot a couple different looks. The images are currently under consideration by various magazines (and one has already been accepted for print) so I can’t share the photos just yet, but I can share a behind the scenes video shot by Mario Padilla of Cerberus Productions! Can’t wait to share more from this lovely lady’s shoot soon!

Earlier this month, Brianna & Donnie’s beautiful wedding at the Jacksonville Golf and Country Club was featured in the “I Do, I Do” section of the Florida Times-Union! Their fun and quirky Zelda-themed wedding caught the attention of the writer of the column, and it certainly was one of the cutest themes we’ve ever seen at a wedding! Congrats again to Brianna & Donnie!

Yesterday, I had a fun time shooting this little cutie in the studio! Miss Amelia is a few months away from her 2nd birthday, and she’s such an expressive girl! She will absolutely let you know what she’s feeling, and she has no problem saying “No!” In that regard, I think I could learn a lot from her! As I was editing, I realized how much these photos captured her personality. I am so fascinated by how determined and intelligent this little lady is already! If she doesn’t become a CEO some day, I think she could easily become an actress with all this character! Oh, and add to all those great traits that she happens to be adorable as can be!

If you haven’t been over to the Pillow Book Boudoir website lately, you’ll want to head over and check out Vivi’s recent boudoir session in the studio! I always love shooting with Vivi, and this time I teamed up with makeup artist Beauty by Santana Maria, who created a beautiful look for Vivi. Here’s a preview from her shoot!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!! I had to share one of my favorite sessions on happy-heart-super-duper-love-day – Crystal and Carl’s engagement photos in Cocoa Beach! Sure, I may be biased because it’s my best friend with the love of his life, but I just think that these two are a perfect example of what “happy and in love” looks like! I hope they inspire you to laugh with your sweetheart on this special holiday celebrating L-O-V-E!
