A BIG Announcement!

Well, as you might be able to guess from the photo below….I’m expecting! Baby BOY (!!!) is due around the holidays.  I couldn’t be more thrilled! For so long, I have photographed so many families and babies, and it’s hard to believe that I will now have a little one of my own to photograph!

So what does this mean for my clients? It means that fall family portrait sessions are going to be VERY limited this year, as I need to allow myself time to edit all of the sessions and deliver them in time for the holidays (and before I give birth).  Because birth is unpredictable, I will be scheduling sessions up to November 9th, but not any later. I will be accepting 8 October sessions, and once October is fully booked, opening up 4 November sessions if the weather cooperates….but that’s it!  Because I will be scheduling fewer sessions for fall, session dates will only be held with an e-signed studio policies contract and a non-refundable paid session fee (all done online and via Paypal), and must be submitted within 24 hours of being sent.

Ready to book your fall family portrait session?!?! Well, if you’d like peak fall foliage, then I suggest scheduling your session between October 13th and October 28th, as these weeks have been predicted to have the best foliage! And it sure is pretty in photographs, isn’t it??

Engagement sessions are also gorgeous in the foliage, too!!

If you don’t have availability during the peak fall foliage weeks, what about an apple orchard? Apple orchards all look very “fall-ish” and can be photographed at any time in September-November.

Even the city has some nice spots with foliage!

Puerto Rico {travel photography}

We  traveled to Puerto Rico in February for a much needed week long vacation.  We chose Puerto Rico, because we also wanted a cultural experience, and not just the all-inclusive experience (there’s nothing wrong with that sometimes though!).  We stayed at the Andalucia Guest house in San Juan in the Ocean Park residential neighborhood.  This was another attempt at a cultural experience, avoiding the traditional high-rise hotel in a touristy part of the city.  The Andalucia Guest house was amazing- small and quaint, within walking distance to multi-million dollar homes, the best beach in San Juan, lots of local restaurants, and European bakeries and cafes.  I highly recommend it!

We also rented a car and took a drive to visit Old San Juan, the rain forest El Yunque, and Luqillo Beach at the foot of the mountainous rain forest.  It was beautiful!  Puerto Rico is so small, everything is really a day trip away from San Juan.

Included below are my photos from the trip.  Among them I have included photos of the Andalucia Guest house, El Yunque, Luqillo Beach, Old San Juan, Ocean Park Beach, and the million dollar homes in the exclusive Ocean Park gated community.   Among these homes, I noticed and photographed many of the gates, barbed wire, iron barred windows and doors, and walls guarding these homes.  Just something I was not used to seeing, and found interesting.

So, Enjoy!
