{Victoria’s First Year}

Categories: Portraits Tags: + + +

There is not much to say about this family that I haven’t said already. Our first year plan allows us to stay connected with our clients. Rosy had her maternity session with us and then chose to take advantage of our first year plan. So needless to say I’ve gotten really close to this family and have become totally smitten with them! Victoria just turned one and looking thru all her past shoots I got so sentimental I could only imagine what Rosy and Eladio are going to feel watching this slideshow! This slideshow if anything can attest how fast kids grow and how important it is to document this special time. Below is the slideshow of all her photos that I had the honor of taking and I also included my favorites from her last photo shoot (her one year photos).

{Jeanette + Emilio} Are Engaged | Miami Engagement Session

Categories: Engagement + Anniversary Tags: +

In our business, we develop close relationships with our clients. Photographing a wedding is not just about the wedding date but its about all the months leading up to the big day, and even beyond. At times we spend a year or more working with our brides and grooms. The engagement session is a big part of developing a bond with our clients. Getting the photographs that show emotions and a true representation of the couple and their relationships is what it’s all about for us. When a client says that they are opting out of an engagement session it such a disappointment for us. The engagement session to some is just “more” pictures, but for us it’s so much more than that. Like I mentioned, it helps us start a relationship with the client. You need to trust us, you need to feel comfortable with us, and vice-versa. We often say that an engagement session is a rehearsal for the wedding day. We are on a tight timeline on the wedding day, at times we are given 10 minutes with the couple to make magic happen. So as you can imagine, the engagement session helps make the most of that 10 minutes. Jeannette and Emilio’s engagement session was definitely a start of a friendship. We hit it off and I got to know the couple so much during this shoot. Their wedding was just this past weekend and it was such a good example of how important an engagement session is. The wedding day felt like it flew by and we were only given a few minutes to take photos, the church turned the lights off and we literally given 5 minutes with the couple. In those 5 mintues, we really did make magic. The couple knew what to do with very little direction and they were confident with me and themselves, it just worked out. I can’t wait to show off all their wedding pictures but for now here are their edgy and trendy Miami engagement pictures.

{Oscars 2013} Best Dressed

Categories: Ramblings of a photographer Tags: + + + +

As wedding photographers, we see hundreds of wedding dresses from different designers. But, watching the Oscars 2013, the dresses that many of the actresses wore were the highlight for us! From strapless, to bold colors, these leading ladies know how to steal the show. Here are our absolutely favorite gowns that we would love to see in white down the aisle… But my vote for best dressed was Jennifer Lawrence in Dior. Just breathtaking! And, I also loved Jessica Chastain in Armani and her Jessica Rabbit signature red lips. But, not far behind is Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta. Who do you think was the best dressed?

{But what do I wear?} Don’t stress about your session…

Categories: Ramblings of a photographer Tags: +

So, you decided to to take the plunge and book that photo shoot you have been talking about. I mean, the last time you and your family got photographed, well, it has been some time now. Now, the dreaded question, “What in the world are we going to wear?” I know there are basic rules you hear about, “Can’t go wrong with solids” or “Patterns can be too busy” or “Wear all white”… Well, some of these can be true, but let’s just discuss some points that we recommend.

BE YOURSELF Don’t wear something your are uncomfortable in, or don’t feel is your style just for the pictures. Although, dressing up and getting your hair and make up done is a perk to having a photo shoot, but don’t go so far that when you look at the pictures, you don’t recognize yourself! Also, if your son is in a cowboy stage, go with it! Bring along some boots, jeans and a cowboy hat! We are documenting a stage in their lives that they will outgrow, and move on to something else, but wouldn’t it be great to capture that moment in time, and look back years from now to remember how he use to smirk with that missing tooth and say “Yee Haw”? Also, a rule of thumb is if that shirt irritates your kids’ skin or the shoes are just too uncomfortable, your pictures will show it. So, make sure when shopping, to take that into consideration.
WHERE ARE YOU GOING? I always like to give clients an idea of wardrobe by first asking how is your home decorated? If you have vintage furniture and antiques, I wouldn’t recommend your shoot look ultra modern in the city. I would suggest that you look around, and visualize where you will hang your pictures, and what colors/themes match the area, and go from there.
COLOR IS MY FRIEND Let’s say it together now, “Color is my friend.” Now, seriously, the only time you should be wearing all white is the day your walk down the aisle to say “I do”. I mean, do you normally run around in all white? Then, now is not the time to experiment. Gone are the days of white button down shirts and jeans. Show your individual personalities by choosing several colors to work with. For example, choosing one pattern for the princess of the family that has yellows and grays, then using that palette to continue the theme with the adults. Even if you introduce another color. It’ll all look amazing together. I look back at some pictures and see families with the same colors, same jeans, etc, and think, “Uniforms are for school, not shoots.”
PLAIDS AND POLKA DOTS Who said rules aren’t meant to be broken. Here’s one I encourage! Patterns are not bad, but TOO much pattern is. Like I said before, starting with some type of pattern to base the color scheme on is perfect, but everyone wearing that same pattern is a disaster. It should be a hint of pattern, not polkda dot overload!
ACCESSORIES, ACCESSORIES “My motto is to go wild on the accessories – the belts, the hair clips, the jewelery.” Heidi Klum has a point with her motto. Accessories can enhance your outfit and make them picture perfect. There is nothing like a fabulous belt and great earrings to give that “umpf” to your look, but make sure that when choosing for your little ones, not to over do it that they want to claw off that huge flower on their head. Shoes are a great accessory to any outfit. Choose wisely (and comfortably, too).
So, these are just some rules to shop by… But, remember, rules are meant to be broken, so be creative and let your imagination run wild! Follow us on Pinterest to see some more fashion ideas… http://pinterest.com/psphotog/

{PS on Baby Lifestyles}

Categories: In the Press Tags: +

A few months ago, I decided to photograph my daughter, Alyssa using the wind and a pinwheel.  She absolutely loves being in front of the camera, and within minutes, I had a collection of images that I will cherish forever.  As a photographer, I always photograph other’s and their families, but never photograph my own enough!  So, I was honored when Baby Lifestyles wanted to feature that shoot on their blog.  It’s one thing to love your work, but it’s a whole ‘nother thing when others love it, too!   Honestly, I completely got swept up in the madness of holiday photography season, and forgot to post the news. So, a light bulb came on yesterday and I was reminded! Whoops! Sorry Alyssa! Take a look at the feature, CLICK HERE. ~Susie, the “S” in PS

{Baby Cesar} Miami Baby Photography

We are always so happy to keep in touch with our brides and grooms. And when they come to us to photograph their next milestone in their lives, well it just means the world to us. Diana and Gio are now a family of three! This family lives out of state in North Carolina, so I wasn’t able to meet Cesar until they came down for the holidays. Cesar has a personality that just makes you melt. He is so scrumptious and during the studio pictures he had us all laughing. Cesar’s smiles lasted from the beginning to the end of the session, I seriously could have photographed him all day and he wouldn’t have minded. Diana and Gio, you are truly blessed and Cesar as well, you two are amazing parents and I am so happy to have met Cesar.
