Nicole from Michigan • Senior Graduation Photography Miami

It was the end of the year and Nicole came down with Mom, Dad, best friend and family dog in tow for her super fashionable S12 Senior session at the beach. Did I mention they drove? From Michigan?!?!?! Yeah, a loooooooooooooooonng way. I was a little cold, wearing a fleece sweater, nose dripping, eyes tearing….and Nicole’s Dad was in SHORTS. Ha! So funny. I think we Floridians are hilarious during “winter” – freezing in 60°. This day was a dream, oh so beautiful….exactly the reason why the rest of the country flocks our way at this time of year…absolutely perfect for a photo shoot. Nicole knocked it out like a pro. Take a look and drop her some blog love (comments)… Enjoy! ♥ Vanessa

Jade • Sweet Sixteen Photographer Miami

I’ve written time and time again about the heat during summer photo sessions. Although September doesn’t really qualify as summer, I was so relieved when Jade decided to postpone her session until November (when the weather gets a little better) so she wouldn’t melt in the heat. Thank goodness for that as everything was absolutely perfect this November day. The light was beautiful, the park, the beach, the model, and even the huge crazy duck that wobbled right up to me demanding food provided the right amount of comedy to an already great day (see his picture below). My favorite shot of the session is this first one which is so subtle and soft. Mr. M will be regretting his decision (right Jade? *wink*). ♥ Vanessa

Five times three • Quince Photos Miami Fifteens

This session was on my calendar since the beginning of the year. We had talked about clothing, locations, colors, invitations, theme, hair, make-up…you name it…we talked about it. The session day finally arrived and it was AMAZING! Granted, it was exhausting, but being a photographer doesn’t get much more fun than this…three locations and five hours, and a client that’s open to try anything especially at night, on Lincoln Road, in front of tons of people. The session started with formal shots, then moved to some casual beach shots, ending with one-light experimentation at night in Miami Beach! We had drinks, toasted to Sophie’s Fifteen years, and had appetizers at a little Italian restaurant (with cool shots in front of the wine rack). Then, two days later I was photographing her ultra chic birthday party (I’ll post some of those soon). What can one say other than, awesome… I now realize that multiplying the numbers (3 locations/5 hours) equals 15! Mmmmhhh…weird don’t you think? Sophie, you are lovely, smart, and wise beyond your years; always stay true to you and you shall reach beyond your wildest dreams. Happy 15! ♥ Vanessa

A Promise is a Promise• Quince Photography Miami

At long last! I promised this sweet girl a blog post of her fabulous sessions and had not been able to deliver because it’s been CRA.ZY!! I made an extra long post, I confess, out of guilt at first; but once I started, it became obvious that I just needed to show more because they came out so amazing! The first few shots were on location on one of THE hottest days of October. I mean, it was H.O.T. The poor thing had to haul around the dress and Mom nearly fainted in the bathroom trying to get it on. But, they went with the flow so graciously and so composed that I knew we were going to get beautiful images. We finished up the first location and went on to wrap it up at the beach where Lauren knocked it out of the park also. Yet, we weren’t able to get to a favorite outfit that Lauren wanted to do, so a couple of weeks later we did a studio session to get those in and incorporate some of her favorite things to do, like listening to music and reading. The second time around was even better. Lauren, you’re a beautiful, intelligent, and vibrant girl…I loved photographing you and I wish you lots of joy on this birthday and all the ones to come. ♥ Vanessa

Sweet Fifteen • Fine Art Quince Photos

There’s so much in photography, as much as in life, that you just have to feel your way through…just sort of go with the flow. This session was just that. There are many great shots that I’ll be posting in a couple of days, but couldn’t wait to share this one. I love the feel of it. ♥
