I remember getting a message from Zeli via Facebook Messenger telling me that a family vacation was being planned within the next few months. Part of it was going to be enjoyed at Ft. Lauderdale Beach Resort were she requested to have a family session! From that moment, I was intriguied and very excited to have them down to also enjoy this wonderful experience♥
The day came and we all met. The sun was shining, the humidity was on point, and the sound and smell of the ocean was just dreamy. This lovely family was natural, from being “posed” to just being themselves and showing all their love for each other melted me with joy inside. Not only did I witness it in the time frame spent with them but I had the privilege to capture it and have it still for a lifetime.
These are the moments we live for.
Junior and Zeli, thanks for taking me along the ride! It was an honor to have been able to capture your family’s essence during your trip down here in Ft.Lauderdale. From all the kisses, hugs, and long walks down by the beach…it was all amazing. I hope these memories live on for a lifetime! Much ♥ Carolina Tejeda Photography
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… And soon they will be a party of 4!
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!
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. This switch is a new sense added to a woman’s life that has an inseparable bond between her and her child. I can say that its just magical!
I had the privilage to capture this beautiful stage in Lesly’s life. After having a boy, she is now having a baby girl! Big brother is very excited for his new little sister, from the beginning to the end he would not stop kissing his mommy’s belly.♥ Lesly is one glowing beautiful pregnant woman… and husband and big brother are just completely in love.
Edward and Lesly, thank you once again for allowing me to serve you guys. It was a sweet adventure to capture this beautiful stage in your lives. Little princess Lianna will definetly bring lots of joy and sprinkles!

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…♥
“And the Loveliest Couple Award goes to…
MR & MRS TEJEDA!”
It was definitely an honor to be able to capture The Tejeda Family’s legacy… Its always worth going out of your way to have your family portrait taken… A picture freezes that moment… that emotion of you and your love ones. Its priceless. Love you guys!
Knowing Erika for a few years now, I just knew right of the bat, that her family session was going to be fun experience for all, and it sure was! Erika and I met at church serving in the children’s ministry, and from day one we really connected and it was like we had known each other since forever.
From the minute we all got to Tree Tops Park to the time we said good-bye, it was all fun and games… Dino her husband, couldn’t keep a straight face for one second, it was laughs and jokes behind every “pose”… lol! And the kids.. where just adorable!
Aren’t these boys so handsome?
Watch out guys! She has two bodyguards! Three with dad!
And her look says it All…
And when They Kiss.. Time Freezes…
Dino & Erika, you guys are truly blessed with a beautiful family. Thank you once again for allowing me to go on this short journey and capture the true essence of your loved ones.
