Stefanie & Nate {Ocean Ridge Sunrise Wedding}

Stefanie & Nate’s wedding is still one of my favorites to date for a handful of reasons. First, they decided to forfeit the idea of a big wedding and do an intimate ceremony on a private beach in Ocean Ridge instead which I loved! Without all the big hoopla and stress of the day, the love between them really came through. There is something so incredibility magical about intimate ceremonies. Second, they decided to tie the knot at sunrise and man did the Florida skies deliver that morning. Thirdly, their cute little man, Jackson got to be part of the day as well which just made it extra sweet.  And can we talk about her dress!? It was so stunning!

They said their vows as the sun came up and finished out the morning with a tasty brunch with close family and friends at Latitudes in Delray Beach. Knowing this couple personally, I could not have been more honored to capture their day and continue to watch their family grow. They are just one of those couples that you meet and you want to spend all day with. Stefanie is one of the most kind heart’ed people I ever met and Nate is total charmer, not to mention a riot in the humor department. They perfectly compliment each other in all the best ways possible.

Amanda & Patrick’s Wedding at B Ocean {South Florida Wedding Photographer}

I met Amanda at a bridal shower for one of my other In A Glimpse Photography brides (you can see that gorgeous shower here) and instantly feel in love with her. She had just recently got engaged and I was in love with her engagement ring! A few short months later I got to meet her fiance Patrick at Maria & John’s destination wedding in St. Augustine and instantly got to see why she was so smitten with him. The two of them together are a total blast! They are some of the happiest, fun, laid back people I have ever met! Not long after meeting them we did their engagement session which just made me love them even more. It was one of my favorite engagement sessions to date. Be sure to check it out here. With all of that said, you can imagine I was pretty excited for their wedding day.

First, let’s talk about their adorable wedding invitation that Amanda designed with their engagement photos!! And then there were her beautiful sparkly shoes and gorgeous starfish details. Amanda and Patrick tied the knot at B Ocean in Ft. Lauderdale and they could not have asked for better weather for their beach ceremony. Highlight of the day….for something a little nontraditional they had their guests toss baby beach balls as they officially became Mr. & Mrs. which was probably my favorite wedding detail by far. But it didn’t stop there. They had a gorgeous brunch with adorable cake pops and stunning table details to finish out their wedding day.


A Day In The Life ~ Capo Family

 

In A Glimpse is excited to officially start offering Day In The Life sessions. So what exactly is a Day In The Life session you may ask. Well, basically it’s me capturing your life as it happens every day. There is no schedule, no planned location, no matching outfits just beautiful photos of your family the way you see them.

Time has a funny way of creeping up on us. That’s part of the reason why we take photos, to remember those moments, those events, that we know we won’t remember forever. Why is it that we only take photos of the BIG stuff? Weddings, babies, birthday parties…major life events. Why do we rarely, if ever photograph the every day moments? At the end of our life time all those every day moments are just as life changing and beautiful as the really big ones but they are so rarely photographed.

As a photographer I love capturing families and children, especially as they grow. I’ve been fortunate enough to have some clients start with me capturing their wedding, all the way up to two babies and years later which is a pretty amazing thing! But I can say that behind every posed family photo session I’ve captured, most, if not all did not go as smoothly and as enjoyably as one might think from the photos. There is usually a lot of bribery and of course meltdowns and lets not forget that’s not including the stress that mom and dad feel to pick out matching outfits, pray the weather is nice and hope their kids cooperate. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am sucker for a really great family portrait and I do believe it’s something you should do on a regular basis BUT I also think there is something incredible about capturing every days as it happens, un-posed, unscripted, just life as it is. Life with kids is messy and usually loud and pretty chaotic but that life is yours. The way your little one’s feet sit in high chair, the way your child lines up their toys, the way your kids interact with each other, the face they make right after you yell at them, the joy on their faces as they play in the backyard…..those moments are beautiful and as any parent would tell you they are fleeting. So why not capture them? And more importantly, you should be in those moments as well. Parents these days take tons of photos, I don’t doubt of their real life, but as a parent are you ever in any of those photos? Do they ever come out of your phone? Are they put away for safe keeping and memories for later?

The images below are of a family very near and dear to my heart. A while back ( like a long while back) I got to capture their life for the day. I’ve been waiting to share them until I was ready to open up these sessions to everyone and now I can’t wait any longer. Day In The Life sessions are officially available. I can spend 2 hours with your family or a whole day! And at the end of it you will have just a small glimpse of your life preserved in photographs. If you are interested in one of these sessions please head over to our contact page here .

Bo Willow’s 1st Birthday {Boca Raton Family Photographer}

Be prepared to see the cutest decorated 1st birthday party I’ve ever been too! I had the pleasure of capturing cute little Bo Willow as a newborn ( you can see all the red headed cuteness here) so I was honored to capture her first birthday.With a name like Bo Willow I knew her birthday would be as hippie chic as it gets. All the adorable decorations are by the talented Phases Of Love, and mom made all the whimsical dream catchers. And if the decorations weren’t adorable enough Bo has a really cute group of friends that were a blast to capture!

DeMello Family

I absolutely adore this family!  I’ve been lucky enough to capture Stephanie when she was expecting ( you can check out that session here) and the adorable Sloan when she turned 1 (her adorable pretty in pink cake smash session here) So you can imagine I as thrilled when they asked me to do a full extended family photo shoot! There is nothing better than 3 generations in one photos, this is what capturing moments is all about.

Baby Abigail & her furry friend {Boca Raton Newborn Photographer}

When people tell me they want to incorporate pets into their photos I get a little nervous, especially when it’s a newborn shoot. Partly, because admittedly I am not a dog person but mostly because pets rarely cooperate as well as people hope they will but oh man this little dog was all about it and this sweet little girl was just about as cute as they get!

Introducing Bennett {Jupiter Beach Newborn Photographer}

I say it every time I photograph a newborn that they are by far my favorite, especially when they are as good as this little guy was but this newborn was extra special as he is the handsome little man belonging to a good friend of mine. I was beyond excited when Shayna told me she was expecting. This little guy was prayed for long before he came to be and he filled a huge empty space in this couple’s hearts. He is a spitting image of half mom and half dad and has the best temperament of a baby I’ve seen yet. He slept for most of his session but made sure to give me some great wide eyed photos too and enough adorable expressions for me to have no doubt that he is the child of Tom and Shayna. Probably my favorite part of this session was taking photos of Bennett on the steps of their brand new home that is pretty much as good as it gets!
