Francisco and Leah

Francisco and Leah were married last weekend, just three weeks after their engagement session with me, which you can see if you look further down the blog. It was a beautiful wedding in Titusville and reception in Merritt Island, Fl. Their father's are standing behind them in this picture above after they gave a very sweet blessing over the couple during their ceremony. It was a pleasure being your wedding photographer guys, happy honeymoon!

This is where Francisco proposed at Riverfront park near Cocoa Village

I think these are Leah's brothers rockin out...

Beth called me for commercial photography because she has just become a realtor and needed some photos for her real estate website and business cards. We met at her home in Satellite Beach, Fl and took some casual outdoor shots then set up the studio inside for her head shots. Here's my favorite casual and favorite formal. I know she's excited to get the fully edited and retouched digital files she needs to have her web site up and running. She'll be available to serve buyers and sellers in the Melbourne area plus Satellite, Indian Harbour, Indialantic and Melbourne Beach. She's great so give her a call when you need a good realtor!

The Levy Family

The Levy family have been good friends of mine for a long time. Its funny that I just photographed the Ryals who have 3 children, all girls and all similar ages to my kids and now the Levy's who also have 3 similar ages but all boys! I was glad when Kelly pulled the "free session" ornament out of our Christmas gift exchange because I knew she was ready for some family photos... I never thought we'd be doing them in the summer but it worked out well with the baby walking now, so he could play too. These boys all have their own little personalities and it was fun seeing them come out in these photographs...

Asher is the talkative social butterfly, Declan the thinker and Miles the sweet, smiley baby.

He's about to say something quick and witty...

Lovable furry old... Miles

Look at those dimples!
Declan has the sheepish grin like he knows more than I do but won't tell me.

Miles, what's wrong? Did I forget my makeup?

If you know Asher, you know his cute expressions are never ending... I think he's part grown up. Tom Hanks style.

My favorite. There's lots of Kelly and Declan smiling and laughing
but this one is the quiet moment. With three children, I know those are precious.

Asher is also part super hero.

Thinkers feel grumpy sometimes... I can relate.


These guys really love their daddy, they just couldn't get enough.

second favorite.

Kelly is such a great wife and mom, she's always talking about how much she loves her husband Lev, what a great dad he is and how much she believes in him... It always reminds me that I should complain less and encourage more. Hope you guys enjoy these!

The Castellano Family

I met the Castellano family on Melbourne Beach last week for some portraits of their extended family. You can tell by the smiles above that this is the grandparents and the grandchildren. The kids had fun, some left wet and I'm sure everyone left sandy but it was all for a good cause!

Brent and Christina

I photographed Brent and Christina's destination wedding on Sanibel Island, Florida last weekend and it was the first wedding I've ever photographed that my husband also officiated. It was fun! I made sure to include a photo below so everyone can see how nice he looked in his suit (which I had to purchase for him since the last suit he bought he picked up at Goodwill and the pants didn't even match the jacket... He's not into shopping, or at least not for anything without a hard drive, a big screen or an "app.") It was a good time. Brent and Christina had a beautiful ceremony and reception at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club. The weather was as good as it gets for July in Florida. Perfectly overcast, nice breeze. I hope they will look back on these highlights and relive the joy of their big day!

We didn't have a lot of "preparation" time for photos but the pearls Christina wore were ready quite early so we had some quality time together while I waited for the bride...
Using one of the bridesmaid's dresses...

What a sweet grandmother Brent has!

Ceremony ready...

I absolutely adored this flower girl dress, and she looked perfect wearing it!

Look how happy!

The moment you've all been waiting for (my husband in the back), how handsome is he? First to guess his age correctly wins a free accordion wallet book (really cool product!) act now... operators are standing by...

My personal favorite of the day. They had about half a second alone after the ceremony... but used it well!

These crazies were singing "Don't stop believing..." after they took the party into the parking lot.
Okay not crazy, fun - and a little crazy. Anyone know all the lyrics to the chorus off hand?
