Meet this beautiful little family, Roberto, Cristal + Abigal. Originally Cristal had scheduled a maternity session for September. Well, September is pretty much the rainiest season ever here in Lakewood Ranch Florida. So¬†when mother nature wasn’t cooperative we rescheduled for a family session after little Abigal made her arrival.

While I do not specialize in newborn photography, I do specialize in family photos and this is a beautiful little family. Abigal cooperated as much as a one month old could and we managed some beautiful family portrait for them to enjoy years to come.

Cristal wanted the perfect country location for her photos. Sometimes it’s hard for a client to see my vision when I tell them about a location in mind, so I just emailed her some examples of a previous session at a Lakewood Ranch park and she loved the location. We chose a park in Lakewood Ranch and it was great it had all the aspects of a country location that Cristal was hoping for.

Towards the end of the session Abigal was done, we were able to snag some really beautiful couple photographs for Cristal and Roberto. I love making sure mom and dad have photos with and without the kids.

Photography Bradenton

Meet Jennifer! She is a Lakewood Ranch High School Senior that will graduate in 2015! She is so laid back, fun, smiley, giggly, and a beautiful girl! We had her Senior Portrait session at a Lakewood Ranch Park. It was the perfect evening for a fall senior session and Jennifer had the perfect outfits for her fall session.

Fall is my favorite season! I love the warm sweaters, scarfs, and boots. It’s just the perfect accessories for a photo session.

Funny story. Jennifer could NOT stop giggling for a serious portrait – which not everyone can do and it’s totally fine, but I always like to try. But when I asked her to give me a giggle for a laughing picture, she got shy. Soo at the end of the session I asked her to try one more serious one for me, and she could not stop laughing… so I got my laughing picture! ūüėČ Sometimes, you have to be tricky.

Everyone loves a cute cowboy boot, right? And here in Lakewood Ranch – every senior has a pair in their closet. The look I have for you this week was designed by my sister, and she nailed this summer nights look.

Lakewood Ranch Senior Summer Look

She paired a simple summer dress with a must have denim jacket, and some sweet boots. The gold accessories are the icing on the cake. This look is adorable, simple, and timeless. It’s also trendy with the accessories. Can you say perfect?? This would be great for any Lakewood Ranch Senior Pictures!

So we have all seen the show PLL or the commercials, and now they even have their own clothing line at AERO. These trendy girls are everywhere! My friends and I are a little addicted and I just absolutely love the Pretty Little Liars style. Each one is unique and fun, and oh so trendy! I knew I wanted to do a PLL inspired shoot with some of my favorite Senior girls. I contacted one of my 2014 CZP Senior Models about being apart of it and she was in! We then started brain storming and I picked the other 3 girls to be apart of this epic experience.

My good friend Deanna of Mandy & Co. was on board with the idea as well. She provided hair and makeup for the girls and we topped of the experience by adding fabulous styling by my bestie Shelley. She’s no professional stylist – but she is a professional shopper, and fellow PLL addict. While planning she was convinced she would have been better for the part, but seriously she was the best stylist and assistant ever!

After doing much research to make sure we nailed the shoot – I found the perfect locations right in my backyard, in East Bradenton. I purchased smoke bombs to add killer effects and WALAAA! We made an epic PLL inspired shoot.

The girls had so much fun – it was like a day of pampering. Exactly what I wanted them to feel and share with their friends. This is exactly how I want my 2015 CZP Models to feel about their upcoming model shoots (psstttt… I’m still accepting nominee’s for 2015 CZP Spokes Models – nominate a friend or ever yourself, until the end of March).

After this shoot I knew I had found my calling – these creative shoots are exactly what I love to do. Working with young women, aka high school seniors, and a team of my friends to make these girls have an experience they’ll be talking about for a while – mission accomplished.

2014 High School Senior Photos

I was lucky again! Another gorgeous high school senior photo session! Grace is a 2014 Lakewood Ranch High School Senior, and she is stunning. Grace enjoys working with little ¬†kids, babysitting, volunteering at her church’s A.C.M.E. program, spending time with her friends, and focusing on school and her future.

Grace was going for a natural look for her senior photos, which is why the beach was perfect for her!¬†We ran into a bit of rain during her senior photo session, but she rocked it anyways! Grace says,”My experience was very nice, my wonderful photographer was very sweet, and the spot on the beach that she chose was perfect!” And no I didn’t pay her to say that, hehehe.

Grace brought 4 outfits to her session, and we used 3 of them. It gave her 3 very different looks for her senior photos and was the perfect variety. She didn’t overdo it on the accessories, kept it simple with a watch, bracelet, and earrings. It was the perfect touch. Her advice on how to prepare, “Just take a few hours to get reach and make sure your hair and makeup is how you want it, and make sure you have all of your outfits planned out in advance or you will be in my position, rushing to the store the day before my session! Not a smart idea.” One of my favorite parts of planning a senior portrait session, is when they send me pictures of their outfit ideas and chooses. I really love helping them plan, PLUS I love getting ideas from their closets.. hehe. Grace wore a pair of Hollister shorts and a shimmery tank top from Bealls for her first look. For her second look, she wore a long maxi dress from Forever 21 and sandals from Charlotte Russe. And for her third look, her dress was from Guess. Her watch and bracelet were from Fossil.

Most of the time, my Seniors are a little nervous and a lot anxious for their senior photos. I really try to make sure they are comfortable right from the beginning, and I think it starts with all our conversations leading up to the photo session. Grace says, “I had never had a photo shoot done like this so I was a little nervous, but as soon as I got there I felt very confident because my photographer helped me get into the feel of things.”

Grace’s advice to anyone getting their senior photos taken, “Just act natural and pick a place you are most comfortable. Don’t overdo it, the more natural it is, the better, in my opinion.” I agree with her completely. It really comes across in your photos if you are comfortable, so I love to make sure that the location really suits the clients!
