Headed to Cleveland to kiss this man today:

E

Going to try to stay warm (or at least not lose a finger), photograph a bar mitzvah and some other fun shoots, and play with E… will be back in the warmth soon!

Last week, I posted some shots of gorgeous Vivi before her big Sweet 16 party. Here are a few more from last week’s session:

I love looking at these two shots of the family back to back:Β  πŸ™‚

Now for Vivi’s party Saturday night… Everyone had so much fun, they extended the party until 2am! There was food and dancing, dancing, dancing, with two really great DJs, a performance by Simple as Surgery, and late-night dance tunes by a live band accompanying cotillΓ³n (or “crazy hour”), a Latin party tradition.

Here’s a collage of some of my favorite shots (everyone wore black and white, and Vivi had two purple dresses :-)). (That’s a virgin sour apple martini, by the way…)

In preparation for her upcoming Sweet 16, we shot some photos of Vivi and her family by their gorgeous home. I’m excited to photograph her big party this weekend!

She swears to me she’s never done any modeling, but I find that hard to believe, no??

Vivi

I mean, come on…

The camera loves her, as they say.

Her family’s not too bad, either. πŸ™‚ So fun and easy to photograph – I love it!

One last shot of Vivi (for now). I’m obsessed.

Vivi

Sheesh, she’s gorg.

Saving the photos of Vivi in her super-fun dress to keep it as a surprise for the guests. πŸ™‚

Happy weekend!

You may remember Remy’s first photo on my blog from almost exactly one year ago. And some other shots here and here. He is so sweet, handsome, and ridiculously cute. Talia’s no stranger to my camera, either, since I’ve photographed her face no less than 100 times for her leather accessories line, Green Apple Accessories. We finally did a family shoot, back at Selby Gardens (where we did Remy’s first session), this past weekend.

How cute are they?

Shelby, Remy, & Talia

I can’t really stand how cute Rem is in this one. And those eyes are just too much:

A couple more favorites… Rem in his glory:

Loved photographing this trio. πŸ™‚ Glad we finally made it happen, T!

For the 10 days since we’ve been home from Boston, we’ve had visitors, creating sort of an extended holiday celebration – always a great excuse to take some time off to have fun and enjoy each other and Sarasota.

First, Dana and E were here, and even though E was a bit under the weather, we had so much fun. I didn’t realize 17 months (TODAY – Happy 17 Months, E!!) was such a cute age! He understands so much, makes us laugh all day, and is a really sweet little man.

Here he is at a playground, with his eyes looking nothing short of ridiculous:

E

Before Dana and E left, J’s sister Lauren and her boyfriend came to visit. We took E to the beach on a very breezy, chilly day, and E actually liked it better than when it was warm and sunny!

(All of the following photos were taken with my PEN camera.)

Nokomis Beach with no one else in sight…

E

Getting some shells with Lauren:

E & Lauren

And one of my favorites – E with his mama. I want to kiss that face.

E & Dana

After Dana and E headed back to snowy Cleveland, the weather warmed back up a bit and we spent some more time at the beach, taking some romantic shots of Lauren and Kent:

Lauren & Kent

What a nice way to come home… Now it’s back to reality, although that’s not so bad when it’s 70 degrees in January! Thanks for the great visits, guys!

Our good friends Steve and Karin – and their adorable 2-year-old daughter Summer (some photos of Summer in May ’10 here) – just welcomed Sienna Faith to the family. We met the precious, gorgeous little one at 6 days old. We knew they’d have a cute one, and Sienna is scrumptious. Perfect newborn model, too!

Steve had a photo in mind that he really wanted to capture Sienna’s tinyness. Here it is:

Sienna

Isn’t she edible and so, so pretty?

Sienna

My favorite family shots… Summer doesn’t quite know what to make of Sienna quite yet, but she does know how to smile for a photo! πŸ™‚ (And Sienna’s little mouth just makes me nuts with how cute it is!)

Sienna, Summer, Karin, and Steve

Congratulations, Karin, Steve, and Summer! We are already in love with Sienna. πŸ™‚

Happy New Year!

I rang in 2011 by capturing the wedding of Kate & Adam in Boston. Apart from having to wake up at 6am to catch our flight back to Sarasota (and 77 degrees – yay!), it was such a great experience. Kate is the most laid-back bride I’ve ever seen (although it may be a tie with Molly), and I felt like I’d known the two of them and their family for years – even though I only met them on wedding day! Everyone, from the bridal party to Kate & Adam’s families to the band (Night Rhythm) to the reception staff, was so nice and fun.

They had a beautiful candlelit ceremony at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in the South End followed by a New Year’s celebration and reception at The Colonnade Hotel.

I have tons of photos to go through, but here’s a little sneak peek…

Kate had really wanted sparklers on their wedding cake, but it wasn’t allowed at the hotel. Instead, her mom arranged for the newlyweds to be welcomed at their reception by dozens of sparklers. It took a bit of planning, with some detouring of the limo to make sure the surprise wasn’t ruined, and it turned out perfectly. Nice work, Geri! Plus, I think this is one of my favorite shots – so happy, vibrant, fun, and festive!

Kate & Adam

Backtracking to the ceremony… Another of my favorites. Such a gorgeous bride, stunning setting, happy, happy groom…

Kate & Adam

Last photo for today… One of the first from 2011. I absolutely love the energy from Kate & Adam (and everyone else, actually!). They are not having a bad time. πŸ™‚

Kate & Adam

Congratulations, Kate & Adam! Thanks for asking me to photograph your beautiful wedding day. πŸ™‚
