  • Busy weekend

  • Last weekend, I stayed very busy and photographed 8 families in Washington DC.I will try to post this week a few pictures of each.Today, a sweet little boy, 10 weeks old,
  • Lennon Sage

  • Just a few weeks ago I photographed Ashley pregnant. And now, she holds this precious little girl, with whom I'm in love. She is adorable, I held her and felt that warm spot where her little body was against mine and this flood of memories just invaded my heart! There are times when I long for a baby, (briefly, then my senses come back to me, and I realize that I probably would repeat the experience every 2 years... not!). Ashley is one of those natural mothers, she handles Lennon with ease [...]
  • Laura, Joe & Cannon

  • What a beautiful family and fun session this was!Cannon was just a few days shy of his first birthday, and although he didn't feel much like giving me lots of smiles, he sure was sweet and patient with me. Laura and Joe have this amazing chocolate lab, Bailey (hope I have the spelling correct), that they have trained to do the most incredible tricks: for one she's very obedient and would parade behind me to entertain Cannon, and she knows how to retrieve a beer from the refrigerator and bring i [...]
  • Ariel & John

  • Just finished working on a few pictures from this beautiful wedding.  It took place on Ono Island, the day the weather channel expected a small hurricane to land on our coast, and it was an outdoor wedding!  Surprisingly it was OK, it rained only while the bride was getting ready, and during the reception, the sky was beautiful, maybe a little dark.Dorene Nash, from Mobile was the hired photographer and I was second shooting for her. The bride was just stunning beautiful, and I love her name!  S [...]
  • Walton

  • Walton is about to celebrate his first birthday, he is growing super fast!I first took his pictures when he was 8 days old, and he managed to fit cupped in his mother's palms. Looking at him now, that seems impossible!Well, he's a very cute little boy, with beautiful parents:
  • Expecting couple

  • Isn't this the most handsome couple?I can't wait to see their little girl, just a few more days... Those are the longest though.This was a tricky photo session, because I was counting only on daylight and the sun wasn't very cooperative that day, but the pictures turned out great, regardless.I hope that soon I will be able to post images of their baby.
  • Baby A

  • I recently offered a special promotion to an OBGYN practice: only 20 expecting mothers will receive a complementary newborn portrait session. I hope each one of them will take advantage of this opportunity. Fallowing are some of my favorite pictures taken during the first of these sittings. Baby A is only 11 days old here, and she slept the whole time I photographed her. She's just adorable and beautiful like her mother.I love it when they smile in their sleep.Little A's grandparents are bot [...]
  • Baby pictures

  • Here are a few pictures from a baby session. This sweet boy was around a month old and his grand mother called me to take some images as a surprise for her daughter in law's birthday. It was very touching to see how caring the dad was with his new little boy, I hope next time I'll get both parents behind my camera.Baby's grow up so fast, we're all aware that there is no time to even blink. There are a few stages that we should record with photography images, the first one being their first 2 [...]
  • Julie et Floriant

  • This beautiful wedding took place in my hometown, Aix-en Provence. The cermony and reception were held at Floriant's grand parents beautiful home. The ceremony was at noon, followed by drinks, then guests went home, meanwhile everyone was at work to transform the terrasse into a dinning and dancing floor. People returned later in the evening and probably partied all night long, by 10 PM dinner wasn't served yet, and the sun was on its way to set down. Marriages are somewhat different in Fran [...]
  • Valerie and Alexander

  • This french wedding took place in the south of France on July 14Th (national day). The location was beautiful with an unusual view of the mountain Sainte Victoire (Cezanne's favorite study), surrounded by vineyards, the weather was so pleasant and it even became cool as the evening progressed (nothing like steamy Pensacola!).I only wish I could have attended the workshops prior to their big day.
  • Bambi Cantrell and Jerry Ghionis wedding Photography workshop in Boston

  • Time flies!I returned home to the US barely 12 days ago and have already completed an absolute wonderful wedding photography workshop (again) with world top wedding photographers, Bambi Cantrell and Jerry Ghionis, and got my 3 children all situated with their first day of school today (big successful day for all 3!), let's not even talk about the loads of laundry and the scary huge pile of mail waiting for me after 7 weeks out of the country (although my husband did a great job of paying bills o [...]
  • Caroline and her children

  • Following are a few pictures from a beautiful family.  Caroline's parents are good friends of my parents, they're some of the sweetest people and always so much fun to be around. Unfortunately, the dad was out playing tennis when I took the pictures. The yard is just amazing, typical of the south of France, with gorgeous flowers and lots of little areas, a paradise backdrop for a family session.The 2 boys,Their dog, Jack, thinks he's human, once while sitting at their dinner table, I saw him [...]
