On Thursday, April 26th, 2018, Andrew and I had the honor of working with the Mukhatiyar Family again during their vacation in Palm Beach, from Long Island, New York. Last year we had the pleasure of working with them and we enjoyed seeing them again! It was so fun to see how big the boys had grown in just a year!
This year we captured their family vacation photos on the elegant street of Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, Florida. Their session took place in the westward parts of Worth Avenue. This sweet little family is too cute for words. We had such a wonderful time capturing their family vacation portraits again this year!
Mukhatiyar Family, thank you for choosing us to document your first and second trips to South Florida! It was our pleasure documenting your Worth Avenue family vacation portraits! We hope to work with you again!
Aren’t they just the cutest little family!? Having fun on the stairs. Cuties! Mommy and son. A few of my favorite silly moments!

Worth Avenue Engagement Photos in Palm Beach, Florida
On December 23rd, 2017, Andrew and I had the pleasure of capturing Marlena and Drew’s Worth Avenue engagement photos! These two are the cutest together! We had such a great time strolling along the street of Worth Avenue with them as we chatted about their wedding!
Their session began towards the westward part of Worth Avenue and ended on the beach. They had two outfits, a dressy and a casual one. Since Drew is in the Air Force he wore his sharp uniform for his first outfit and Marlena wore a gorgeous white dress. For their second look they went with a casual outfit perfect for sunset portraits on the beach.
Marlena and Drew, thank you for choosing us to document your engagement photos! It was such a pleasure working with you both! We wish you all the best in this exciting season of wedding planning!

On Sunday, March 12th, 2017, Andrew and I had the pleasure of capturing Kirsten and Joseph’s elegant Worth Avenue engagement shoot. We began our session in the Westward part of Worth Avenue and ended our session at the Palm Beach Clock Tower.
Kirsten and Joseph, it was truly our pleasure capturing your engagement photos! Andrew and I are so excited to be a part of your wedding day in November!
First, we started one street over from Worth Avenue where there is a gorgeous building with amazing detail! Kirsten, you are STUNNING!!Then a few shots in front of the Saks Fifth Avenue ivy wall. Afterward, we captured one of my favorite sets from their engagement session! The following photo isn’t generally a style I dabble in often, but this day I was feeling something different. I ended up being pretty happy with the result.
Then we captured a few classic photos with the iconic Palm Beach Clock Tower.

On Sunday, February 12th, Andrew and I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with Alana and Dave capturing their Worth Avenue engagement photos. We enjoyed the breezy afternoon strolling the street getting to know them and chatting about their wedding! They will be tying the knot on April 21st, 2017 at the Addison in Boca Raton, Florida. Andrew and I are so excited to document their big day!
First, we started with some classic portraits under the dreamy archways of Worth Avenue. Then we captured some more romantic and lifestyle portraits in some of my favorite spots on the Island. Then it was time for some ring shots!
The watch in the photo below was a sweet gift from Alana to Dave. After capturing a few photos of her engagement ring Alana told me that the second ring she was wearing was given to her by Dave’s mother as an engagement gift! How sweet is that!? We had some fun capturing ring shots! The classic photo under the Palm Beach Clock Tower! One of my favorites from their session!

On Sunday, July 31st Andrew and I had the pleasure of capturing Juan & Kacie’s Worth Avenue vacation photos during their time in Palm Beach, Florida. Juan & Kacie are from central Florida and decided to visit West Palm Beach for a relaxing vacation getaway. Juan is a youth pastor and Kacie is a preschool teacher; together they make an adorable couple.
We began our session on the Westward part of the iconic Worth Avenue capturing some colorful lifestyle portraits. Afterwards, we strolled down Worth Avenue to the beach for a few beach portraits! While we walked down to the beach we chatted about life and realised we had many things in common. One funny coincidence we found out is we all attend a church with the same name. Different but with the same name!
Juan and Kacie, you are such a sweet couple and it was a pleasure working with you both! Andrew and I hope you enjoy your portraits and the rest of your vacation here is South Florida.

On Monday, May 9th I had the pleasure of capturing Jaisa and Bruce’s Worth Avenue engagement session! This session is filled with many colorful Palm Beach scenes and joyful moments! Jaisa and Bruce’s shoot was a special one because they brought their adorable son Bruce Jr.! This little guy who is five years old was so well behaved and such a cutie! He plays a unique role because he is actually the reason Jaisa and Bruce met in the first place!
Bruce and Jaisa, met about three years ago. Jaisa worked at a daycare where Bruce Jr. attended when he was two years old. Jaisa fell in love with this sweet little boy and when she met his daddy it was love at first sight. Even though Jaisa did not really believe in such a thing, their relationship bloomed quickly. Soon after their first date she knew he was the one she wanted to spend forever with. After nine months together, Jaisa was invited to Bruce’s family Christmas vacation to Walt Disney World! It was a special trip but what made it even more magical is on December 25th, 2013, Bruce popped the big question, in front of Cinderella’s castle! Jaisa told me, “It was just magical and an unforgettable moment.” Now, after a two-year engagement and a three-year relationship, they are excited to be tying the knot on December 10th, 2016! Jaisa said these past three years raising Bruce Jr. together have been amazing. I can tell they are so excited for this new season of their lives! They are such a beautiful family!
Jaisa and Bruce, thank you so much for choosing us to capture your engagement photos and you wedding day! Andrew and I are so excited to be a part of your big day!

On December 12th, I had the pleasure of capturing the Donaldson family’s Christmas portraits on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, Florida. I have been capturing this sweet family since their son, Karl was months old. It has been such an honor to document this sweet family’s story. The family chose Worth Avenue because of the gigantic Christmas tree that stands in the heart of the street. The kids were very excited to see the huge Christmas tree, but mom and dad were too because they had special memories here. They had walked Worth Avenue and taken pictures in front of the very same tree five years prior when Jennifer was pregnant with Karl. Looking back, on the past five years I have had the privilege to watch this family grow and it has been such a beautiful story to witness and document.
The Donaldson family’s Worth Avenue Family Christmas Portraits were so joyful and fun to capture. Jennifer and Bruce thank you for allowing me the pleasure of capturing your beautiful family’s Christmas portraits.
On November 2015, I had the pleasure of capturing Chelsea and Joseph’s Worth Avenue Engagement shoot. Strolling down Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, Florida with this amazing bride and groom was the best way to spend my Sunday evening. Chelsea and Joseph brought their adorable son, Jaxon. He was not only the cutest thing but also very well behaved. When it was time for just mommy and daddy to take pictures Jaxson was such a helper by making sure his mommy was smiling by say “Mommy, mommy… SMILE” :). Lots of laughter filled this sweet engagement shoot! So excited to capture their wedding in June of 2016!
Chelsea and Joseph, thank you for allowing Andrew and I the pleasure of capturing your beautiful love story! Can’t wait for your big day!

On March 2nd, 2019, Andrew and I finally got the chance to take our maternity portraits on Palm Beach! I was 36 weeks pregnant at the time and, aside from my swollen feet, it was still a great time to take our final maternity portraits! I was mainly thrilled that I still fit into this dress! It was the same one I wore for our 5-year anniversary portraits in Fort Myers when we were just 3 weeks pregnant but had no idea at the time! I thought it would be fun to take our last maternity photos in the same dress, this time on the east coast!
My sweet mom, Maritza, captured these photos for us, and they came out just great! My first photography teacher was my mom, and it’s such a blessing to still be in front of her camera! Thank you so much for these stunning photos, mom!
We feel so blessed to be in the final stretch of this pregnancy! There were so many days I prayed to reach this point, growing a healthy, full-term baby. It’s surreal still somedays that we are almost there! We’re thanking God daily for the biggest blessing soon to arrive!
I am currently 37 weeks pregnant (38 tomorrow!!) and am now considered full-term! I can’t believe we are in the final weeks! There have been many times this pregnancy has gone by extremely slowly, but it’s crazy to think I can potentially be holding my baby girl in a few weeks! We are beyond excited, and we truly cannot wait for this new season to begin!
Overall, I am doing great! Baby is healthy and growing! Aside from swollen feet, heartburn, nausea and random pains, I’m feeling good. Sleep hasn’t been easy lately, but my energy has finally increased, and nesting is in full swing!
Aside from a few house projects still left to finish, we are pretty much ready for baby! Her sweet bed is setup right next to my side of the bed, and I just can’t wait to see her in it! Her clothes are washed, the hospital bag is pretty much packed, and the meal prepping has begun! We’re feeling good about where we are at, and if she were to come any day now, I would be good with it.
Maternity leave is about to start! We will be taking a break from portrait sessions from mid-March until the end of May. We will be back to documenting weddings in the late Summer. Emailing will be limited over the next few months, but I plan to still check emails when possible. We are looking forward to this season of getting to know our new little one and have some quality time to recover. Thank you in advance for understanding!
Since this gorgeous pink tree in Worth Avenue was in full bloom, we decided to start with a few shots there! So glad we did! I love the luck I’ve had finding pink trees for my maternity sessions! 🙂 Then we headed to the North end of Palm Beach for some simple sunset beach maternity portraits!
While we were taking these photos a couple approached us to congratulate us on our marriage! They asked, if we had just got married and I immediately said “Nope! Been married for quite a while now” as I smiles and tried to show off my bump even more! They then realized the bump and congratulated us on that!
I’m still shocked at how many people are surprised when I say I’m pregnant! Still till this day I’ve only been openly noticed as pregnant three times.
