Palm Beach Family Portraits at Bethesda by the Sea


Palm Beach Family Portraits (1)


On Saturday, August 19th, Andrew and I had the pleasure of capturing the Carter’s Palm Beach family portraits! The Carters have been our dear friends for nearly a decade and in April of this year, they added a new member to their family–Clayton James! He is such a joyful baby and they are the cutest family! You might remember their Christmas portraits from last year when Brooke was rockin’ a cute bump! Now C.J. is here and we were honored to capture their first family portraits!

When Frank and Brooke asked us to be C.J.’s godparents we were, and still are, so honored! He is such a fun little one and we love this excuse to spoil him a bit! I think he already knows that when he comes to Rina & Rino’s (our official nicknames) house my camera is bound to come out and he smiles for me almost everytime!

If you’re wondering how our nicknames came about… Well, Brooke and I came up with them because they are short for madrina and padrino which is the name for godmother and godfather in Spanish and Italian. Since I am Cuban, speak Spanish and we were in Italy when he was born we thought the names were fitting! Plus it’s fun to have a unique nickname! Now let’s see if C.J. actually uses it when the day comes!

Frank and Brooke, thank you for being our dear friends! Watching you both step into this new season as parents has been such a joy and privilege to witness! You both are amazing parents!! We are so thankful for you guys and we hope you enjoy your first family portraits with C.J.!

After capturing a handful of lifestyle family portraits at Bethesda by the Sea, we hopped in the car and just drove North until we found our next location! The first set of photos brought out my favorite smile from C.J.
