JOANNA & BRUNO | IN-STUDIO MATERNITY

It all began back in 2008 in a B-767 most likely an “Argentinian aircraft”. This is were Joanna and I first met. At first I would say it as more like a hi and bye relationship until we where put in the A-Check crew in 2013. We were the only females which made it easier to connect. I remember us having conversations of having a family one day and wondered how it was going to be with our crazy schedule(on-call). Joanna being a little impatient wanted to become pregnant and have kids right away… but it didn’t happen like that. I was fortunate and started the motherhood journey first. I remember telling her not to worry… that one day we will  both be pregnant at the same time…lol. And guess what? It happened just like that! During my second pregnancy, I remember her coming up to me and saying ” I got two red lines!” It was amazing… we hugged and still in awe… she couldn’t believe it… 9 months later little Raynor was born♥

Raynor is definitely one handsome little boy! Little did we know we would be in a maternity session with baby #2! The original plan was going to take place in a construction site to go along with the baby shower theme… but due to rain we had to adjust and changed to in-studio session… at end it came out beautiful… _CTP6151.jpg_CTP6195.jpgjoanna 1.jpg_CTP6199.jpgAnd soon they will be a party of 4!_CTP6254.jpg_CTP6239bw.jpg

Joanna and Bruno, thanks for giving me the honor to capture this beautiful stage in your lives. It really makes my heart happy to see your family growing! Sometimes its really worth the wait! Raynor is one little happy cute boy! And the other one under construction will definitely be one handsome stud too!

Congratulations on baby boy #2!

 

MICHAEL 1ST BIRTHDAY! | HOME CAKE SMASH

MICHAEL 1ST BIRTHDAY! | HOME CAKE SMASH

Something about 1st Birthdays that puts a smile on my face. Many laughs, cries, sleepless nights involved within just the first year of a baby’s life. From a tiny little newborn to a mini little human they sure grow really…. fast! These little ones can surely keep you moving. Its amazing to see how fast they develop and learn in just their first year of life.  Fun fact: The fastest they will ever grow is within their first year!

I’ve been fortunate to know Baby Michael since his 8th day! His smile is definetly  contagious and sweet. Makes me want to have another baby…lol! His session was composed a little of mommy and daddy’s preferences… color blue with bowtie & suspenders-mommy and the color white which represents daddy’s legacy.  His session can out just perfect.

Mike and Majorie, thank you guys once again for allowing me to be part of your little ones special day! Baby Michael couldn’t have been a cuter model♥ Can’t wait to see all the wonderful things to come in the near future…

Maternity is one of the most precious yet hard-working stages of a woman’s life. From the moment you know there is life being created, there is a switch that is automatically activate that will always stay on… this switch is called the mother instinct switch.

PAOLA TURNS THREE! | UNICORN CAKE SMASH

From the moment Princess Paola walked in our studio with her parents she immediately lit up the place! Her sassy attitude was just the right match to her theme Birthday Session, Unicorns! She wouldn’t stop giggling and naturally putting her “boss girl” faces..lol! This theme adds so many beautiful colors and joy to the scene.

One of the items I’ve been adding to our sessions are the “crowns”. From the moment I saw the crowns from “Love Crush Crowns”, I fell in love! And the Unicorn crown is definitely one of my favorites!

SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS FAMILY SESSION | THE TEJEDA FAMILY

SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS FAMILY SESSION | THE TEJEDA FAMILY

Very fortunate to be part of this family since 2012! Since I started to photograph everything and everyone that involved families, I somewhat became more aware of making sure memories and portraits were being captured♥. One night after having a talk with my husband about life…we somehow got into a conversation on why their was not a family portrait in his parents home. I remember him telling me that his parents where always busy with lots of work and it just slipped them by and never really noticed.

If you ever go to my in-laws house, you will see everyones pictures up on the wall, on the coffee table even on their fridge! The importance of printing and having these memories have always been treasured in the Tejeda Family but for some reason or the other a family portrait was never taken… This was an issue that had to be resolved ASAP! We made some phone calls and got all the family together to home sweet home,Springfield Massachusetts where Mom and Dad live.

From this entire session, I would say my in-laws where the cutest! Note: They are a bit “old-school” so they couldn’t stop laughing when I would tell them to show me a little of their love for each other…♥

BYRON TURNS ONE! | BASEBALL CAKE SMASH

Baby Byron is really special to me. I had the privilege to photograph his newborn session when he was only seven days old! He has always been one cute, chubby, smiley baby ♥♥♥.  It brings me so much joy to see how much he has grown…! 

Mommy and I where crossing fingers that the field was not going to be wet… due to all the rain South florida had been having the past few weeks. Luckily, it was a little damp, and we made it happen! “ROOKIE OF THE YEAR” is what read one of his shirts. Details, details and more details is what I believe makes the session just a bit more interesting♥. From grabbing the baseballs to smashing his first cake baby Byron had a blast in his session…_CTP5279 copy.jpgBYRON 1.jpg

_CTP5264.jpg
Isn’t he one handsome little stud?

Jessica & Byron, it has been an honor to capture all these precious moments from day seven! I remember it like if it was yesterday that I received a message from you guys telling me that you had just delivered one healthy baby boy and really wanted to have his newborn session scheduled right away. Baby Byron definitely captured my heart from the time I met him. From his smile, to the way he cuddles with you guys is priceless. There is no doubt Baby B will make it to the major leagues one day! 

Happy 1st Birthday Byron III!
