The Plasencia’s Family Portraits

Vanessa and Rudy decided to give their mother family portraits for her birthday, so on the day of Esther’s birthday we got together to take the photos.  How wonderful is that? and how lucky am I to get to spend some time with this beautiful family on this very special day.  It was a typically perfect Miami day at the park and at the beach.  They had a great morning enjoying each other’s company and after the shoot, they decided to take Esther to a restaurant in South Beach to continue the celebration.  I know Esther felt special, beautiful and very loved by her husband and children.  I just drove away with a big smile on my face.  To me, this is what life is all about.  Happy birthday Estercita and may you have many, many more birthdays surrounded by your beautiful family just like today.

Rowan’s Newborn Portraits

I recently had the opportunity to shoot baby Rowan’s newborn portraits.  Jake and Amy are the proud parents of this beautiful baby boy who has come to complete their happiness.  I visited their home and we managed to bother baby Rowan who just wanted to sleep and be left alone.  He behaved wonderfully, and other than  a little “wet” accident, which dad handled beautifully, he simply posed like a little angel as I clicked away capturing many photos which I hope the family will cherish for years to come.  Congratulations Amy and Jake, you have the most wonderful Christmas present anyone could ever wish for.  I leave you with a slide show I have created with some of my favorite photos.  Enjoy!!!

Merry Christmas to all!!!!

The photos for our Christmas cards this year were taken by my very talented son, Chris.  You can check out his work at  We went to New York with the family over the Thanksgiving weekend and had an unforgettable time.  The highlight of the trip for me was walking the Brooklyn Bridge.  This bridge is not only a historical monument, but an example of architectural genius and incredible work of art.  Needless to say between Chris and myself we took a ton of photos.  We chose these two as favorites for our Christmas cards.  I want to wish all my family and friends who follow my blog a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.  We will be spending our Christmas at home with all our family around us (all 40 of them, LOL).  I can’t think of anything better than that.  “Feliz Navidad.”

Patricia’s Bridal Shower

I recently had the pleasure of photographing Patricia’s Bridal Shower.  The party was held at the family’s Coral Gables home.  The decorations and details were all beautifully arranged by the gracious hostesses, Eloisa and Laura.  Patricia was showered with love, presents, laughter and also with a little bit of rain, which served to make the party a true “shower” and made for nice photo opportunities as the guests were greeted under big blue umbrellas.  They all had a wonderful afternoon sipping mimosas, wine, and enjoying delicious crepes made to order by “The Crepe Maker”


I leave you with a slideshow of some of the photos I captured during the party.  Congratulations to Patricia and her family on this happy occasion.

Elsie & Enrique’s Family Portraits

I recently had the pleasure of taking Elsie and Enrique’s family portraits at South Pointe in South Beach.  This was such a fun group to work with!  We started the shoot in a very traditional way, but soon thereafter got hit by some pretty big waves on this windy day and ended up soaked and full of sand, but we got the shots we wanted.  The group included several generations of Elsie’s family and the portraits will preserve good memories for all of them.  I leave you with a slide show I created with some favorites.  to view their entire album, please click on the “LolyPix galleries” section located immediately to the right of the screen.  Enjoy!!!
