As promised, I’m posting a few of the many photos we took during my dad’s very cool 80th birthday party. A group of my parents’ favorite people gathered at Indian Hammocks Park to celebrate Aldo’s birthday. We had two pigs roasted “Caja China” style, and all the trimmings of a delicious typical “Cuban style” lunch catered by the specialists of La Caja China, you can check them out at www.lacajachina.com. They rock!!!!. The decorations, food, drinks, music, cake, and gifts were all amazing, but to all those who love my dad, the most amazing thing of the day was to see his joy throughout the party as he greeted his guests and felt surrounded by so many people who love him and wish him well. It was an unforgettable day and we all had a blast. Happy Birthday Aldo!!!
Everyone’s Favorite Spot
It was a beautiful afternoon at the park. Felicidades Aldo!!!
I recently had the pleasure of taking Hannah’s Quince portraits. Hannah is not only very beautiful, but she’s as sweet as can be. Hannah’s little sister, Kristen and their mom, Janet came along and were great assistants throughout the photo shoot. We visited the Vizcaya gardens for Hannah’s formal portraits in her gorgeous gown designed by Pily Di Maffo. Then we went to Key Biscayne where we did fun portraits at the beach. We had a great afternoon! Here are a few of the photos from that day.
My father will be 80 years old on October 15th and to celebrate this milestone we will have a Cuban themed party next Saturday in his honor. Aldo is not only a true gentleman, but a very cool dad, grandfather, friend and source of inspiration to all who are fortunate to know him. I recently took Aldo’s portraits and we used some of the photos to design his birthday party invitation. I’m posting some of the photos I took as well as an old photo that was taken at a studio in our home town in Cuba when he was 28 years old. Happy Birthday dear Aldo, I thank God for giving me such a good father and I wish you many, many more years filled with good health, and well deserved blessings.

I recently had the pleasure of taking our good friends Rick & Anely’s family portraits. We went to a fishing pier at Palmetto Bay near their home on a cloudy afternoon and managed to take some really nice shots that I think capture their beautiful family nicely. Here are a few of my favorites.
