Absolutely love working with her and the transcending beauty she always brings to the table. She is ready to go undercover and find love in the most romantic way. <3
This black and white beauty shows her finesse with a gracious side portrait. I love her profile and how soft her features look. The black and white gives it just enough umph to portray her delicateness. Stay tuned for more folks, I'm just getting started!
One of my goals this year is to take on more sessions and shoot my life away. So far, so good. This time I focused on headshots, or how my friend would say, "faceshots" ha! (I've corrected him many times, he just doesn't get it, its cool, we're still friends)
Here are the beautiful faceshots:
Super BUSY is an understatement to my life but with a little planning and rearranging, anything is possible!!! Here are a few shots of what my projects look like this week. ENJOY! :)
Much more to come soon!
My wonderful crazy unique family. I wouldn't trade them for the world! Here I'm holding my niece Isabella (in the pink) who is the newest addition to our world. We feasted on the delicious Thanksgiving meal my Aunt Clara hosted for us. The great tradition of family getting together for the holidays is always something to look forward to.
Downtown Orlando became a Jungle of Arts with the help of Creative City Project. They brought the Orlando Ballet, Cirque du Soleil, Central Florida Community Arts Orchestra (which my great friend, Rebecca the cellist, was playing in!), Phantasmagoria and many more performances! Galleries like The CityArts Factory were open to the public and this was all free of charge...yeah, I can't believe it either! For those of you who couldn't come, no worries, I captured the experience for you! Get ready for this magical ART RIDE:
Orlando Ballet showing us their romantic moves and the CFCArts performing in the background.
Phantasmagoria's hottest fire dancers.
Cirque Du Soleil performer kills it with her magical ways.
We love to support our girl Rebecca!!
Some Gallery pics for you to enjoy. I hope you feel like you were there! :)
Watching movies that showcase Peace around the world is one of the best ways to add culture to your life and to stay humble. The documentary that stood out to me is called "Every Three Seconds" by Daniel Karslake. He did a great job relaying the message that everyone everywhere in the world can make a difference. This documentary captured perfectly that no matter the age, gender, color of skin, how rich or poor or where you are, you can always make a change. This film is a wake up call to do your part in helping our people all around the globe.
Ingrid Munro said it best, "Heres the ladder, the climbing you have to do on your own." A great tool to help others help themselves is called Microfinance. Its a way for the less fortunate to borrow money and start their own business. The organization Kiva is a great resource for information and how to get involved. You don't have to give millions of dollars, with only $15 you can help someone jump start their future and help their family climb the financial ladder.
Classical Cellist Rebecca shares more of her fun side with her cute Minnie Mouse ears which we all know look super adorbs on her. She loves music, traveling, food and everything on Park Ave. If you want more of Rebecca check out her blog Rebeccology.

Recently went to Chicago and fell in LOVE with the Windy City! Between the beautiful architecture and the delicious food, I was in a food coma heaven. Here are a few snaps I took while there!
Went to East End Market in Winter Park to scope out the cheese spot called La Femme du Fromage. I had this savory grilled cheese, I'm pretty sure you could hear my taste buds singing in french. This is the best place to spend your evenings, hanging out or walking through the neighborhood market. The food is prepared by culinary geniuses and the food vendors are local farmers. If you're stuffed, check out the Artisan Shops! Here you'll find accessories, postcards, books, vintage shops and more! Hours: Tues-Sat 10a-7p, Sun 11a-6p, Closed Monday.

Had a blast shooting this lady and her funky music spirit! She is amazingly beautiful inside and out and is so humble!

This was a fun one. Talk about Fashionista! This is Shanna and she is beyond fabulous. She is always so well put together and really knows how to glam everything up. I love working with this beauty on Pumps and Pints, she's a great business contributor to the magazine. Keep up with her to know what next big event is going down in Orlando as she frequents fashion shows and music events. You can find her on Instagram and Twitter.
I've been inching my way into the Snap! gallery for a couple months now and finally made it inside! There were awesome pieces of drawings, prints, sculptures, books and videos. You can find The Snap! Gallery on 1013 E. Colonial, Orlando 32803. For more info go to the Snap! Gallery's website. I loved the pieces I saw, here's a peek.
I went to a great performance and saw my friend Rebecca play the cello. The theme was British Rock. They played Queen, Coldplay, The Beatles and other great music. It was amazing. You can find her on here.
Here's my brother practicing his skateboard tricks. This was a fun project, although things got bloody (he fell, a lot). but then he got right back up and tried again, he's relentless. :)
I finally finished uploading the Blue Jacket Park Shoot I did about a month ago. I had tons of fun with Cary, one of my amazing models who put up with me all the time! Thanks for being a great sport, especially with the sun beaming down on us! XOXO.
Yesterday I finished a shoot with the amazing Rebecca. You can find her on Rebeccology. Whats her specialty, you might ask, well she loves graphic design, music and pizza. She's also part of a web-based Orlando Magazine called Pumps & Pints. She was a doll to work with, I hope we shoot again soon!
