Cousins

DSC_2648a

Meet the mastermind. With gorgeous green eyes and a beautiful smile, Amelia had it in her mind that all the cousins should be photographed together.

DSC_2670a

She's a determined young lady. Her younger brother is allegedly taller, but Amelia held on tight to the center spot in all the photos.

Meet the bambino. Toddling away. Showered with affection. One lucky little dude.

DSC_2625a
Meet the princesses. Two peas in a pod. Adoring all that is Amelia. Quietly scheming in the background.

DSC_2520c
Meet the bonsai master (yes, really). Inquisitive and active.

DSC_2739a
Meet the tween. Too cool for smiles, but genuinely polite & funny.
DSC_2702a
Meet the heartbreaker. It took all my restraint not to pinch & kiss those cheeks. So sweet.

DSC_2593a
This beautiful family was so much fun to be around.

Thank you Somers clan for a great start to the day!

Caroline & Brandon

DSC_1640a
It isn't always easy to capture Brandon smiling. Not that he is stingy with smiles, his smiles are simply organic & natural responses not an unnatural reaction to a camera.
DSC_1633a
Good thing he had many reasons to smile this evening. Caroline just learned she received a promotion at work.
DSC_1687a
Work projects fell into place & they were able to join their family at the beach for a mini-vacation. A celebration was in order!
DSC_1671b
Life is good for these newlyweds. They make such a great team & I just can't help but smile when I think of them together.

Alex & Dee

How old will you be when you've been with your soul mate longer than you haven't?

DSC_1631b
28?
DSC_1605a
Didn't think so.
DSC_1587b
These almost newlyweds have such a comfortable presence together.
DSC_1628c
Despite being so young, Alex & Dee managed to grow up together - rather than growing apart.
DSC_1625a
They were so much fun to photograph - I love how Dee's smile will light up any room.
DSC_1596a
And I love how the sun cooperated and ended the session with such a romantic sentiment.

Caroline & Alberto

Curious what a marriage looks like after thirty-five years, four children & one granddaughter?
DSC_1702b
Absolutely joyful.

May your laughter, love & happiness prosper through the next thirty-five years.

The O'Neills

We factored in the sun, rain, humidity and summer crowds when scheduling our shoot.
DSC_0960a
What we did not consider was the wind.

No, Nicole is not a supermodel, but she is a superhero. As in a kindergarten teacher. Her talents with children are amazing.
DSC_0997a
Nicole's skills aren't as surprising when you consider her equally amazing parents. This family has a gift of connecting with people and anticipating the needs of others.
DSC_1010a
Their generosity, love & support are endless. Their laughter is contagious.
DSC_1040a
The more I look at these photos, the more I miss them.
DSC_0957a
When is our reunion photo shoot on the beach?!

Miss M

Look who's three months old!

DSC_9848a

Big brother couldn't be more proud.

DSC_9757a

It was Mom's first day back to work.

DSC_9781a

Little Miss M knew all the right ways to tug at Mom's heart.

DSC_9822a

But, sure enough, once Mom was on her way, the smiles came back out.

DSC_9799a

At least until I put Little Miss M on her belly. But, we'll just keep that experience between you & me.

Vicki & Raul

DSC_1130a
Photograph the everyday, not just the special occasions.
DSC_1081a
Capture those moments in time that shape you.
DSC_1090a
Vicki & Raul entered college with the world in the palm of their hands and when they graduated, four years later, the world had changed. Experienced candidates compete with them for entry level positions.
DSC_1080a
They both know that they are extremely fortunate to be employed.
DSC_1086a
Hard working, optimistic, patient. They are enjoying the ride together.
DSC_1077a
You two make a lovely team! I can't wait to see what riches & adventures come your way.
