it doesn’t matter • Senior photos graduation photography Miami

In every location session, an interesting balance of many variables must occur in order to make a photo work, make it “spark”. There are the tangible things like the subject, the light, the equipment, the location, the style, and the “posing”; and then there are the intangibles like colors, composition, relationships, moods, and energy. The balance of all these elements must happen, no matter what, you feel it and you see it. You have to make it work. For Nicole’s S12 Senior session, a few of these variables were apparently taking a vacation; the most disconcerting was the light. It was very overcast, a little gloomy, and just not quite exciting. But, these moments are always a welcomed challenge because they push me to search for that balance and create something beautiful with what’s around me…to find the shot, because there’s always a great shot. It doesn’t matter which of those elements didn’t show up to my session, I must find that balance and, in the words of Tim Gunn (Project Runway), make it work. Love these three shots of Nicole. As it turned out, that light was stunning for her complexion. ♥ Vanessa

Magic happens • senior photos miami graduation pictures

Every six months or so I see my work go through a transformation, always as a direct outcome of my own life transformations. I sense it in me, I see it in my images and feel it all around me. For Lynn’s Senior photos we planned a morning session in an attempt to avoid another reschedule due to weather. As you all know by now, I’m a night owl and, although I love mornings, I can’t seem to get up for them. So, I don’t usually book 8 am sessions let alone on a Monday morning. But, here I was at 8 am ready for a beach session in the least favorable light possible. I was 10 minutes late and Lynn was still getting her make-up done……so I waited…….really really relaxed. I forgot about the light being too strong, about starting late, about the heat, the props, the shade, the breakfast, the e-mails….I just let it go….and then….magic happens. I’m über excited about these shots and even more thrilled about what’s to come in this transmutation. Lynn, you did an amazing job! ♥ Enjoy…

Twice the Charm • Quince photography miami Fifteen

I’m so loving my Quince photo sessions; they are so fun to do! The girls are always rocking different outfits, hairstyles and they are fearless in trying new things. A few weeks back, Elena’s Mom called me to schedule a location and a studio session for her daughter’s Quince. She said that Elena was into photography and loved what she saw on the blog and was super excited about getting her Quince pictures taken. After one rained-out attempt and reschedule, we got to do both of Elena’s sessions in one day! We snuck in the session at the park right before the rain came down on us and a couple of hours later she rocked it at the studio. I was so relieved that the second time was the charm because they had come from Palm Beach and had gotten hair and make-up done twice at this point. But, it was so worth it….fantastic shots from this session. Great job Elena!
