Jianna + Matt | Engagement Portraits

This couple made my job easy! Not only are they so incredible sweet together, they look like Barbie and Ken, but they were super comfortable posing in front of the camera for their engagement shoot.

I photographed them last month when I was back in Florida. We covered a lot of grounds in the River District of Fort Myers, FL capturing their engagement pictures.  And we lucked out with some awesome natural lighting, thank you clouds! 🙂

It was hard to narrow down my favorites engagement photos to put up here, so warning..there’s a lot!

Congratulations, Jianna and Matt…looking forward to your wedding day! 🙂

Family Beach Portraits, Sanibel Island

So maybe 6 years ago I photographed my friends, Chris and Kim, at the beach, just the two of them (first photo below).  And here we are again, back at the beach plus two very adorable little girls!  It’s fun to see how much can change…even just looking back over this year.  Speaking of, where on earth did 2013 go?!

Just before Christmas we headed out to Lighthouse Beach on Sanibel Island for a sunset photoshoot.  These two little girls kept me laughing and having such a great time.  While one little girl is much more dainty and delicate, not really interested in getting sandy, wet or dirty…the younger sister didn’t mind getting soaked and even trying a bite or two of sand!  Such cute little girls!

Happy New Year!  I’m excited for 2014 and what it has in store (traveling???!)!

Downtown Fort Myers Family Portraits

And once again…I’m a little late on posting these portraits.  :-/  I enjoyed meeting this family very much.  Both the parents work in creative fields which made it really fun knowing they had a creative eye too.   In fact, Gretchen is an amazing painter..check her out: http://www.pawpalettes.com/home .

As I was looking through these I realized one of the locations is no more.  The new restaurant, Firestone, has painted the brick wall.  Crazy how downtown Fort Myers keeps changing, but it really looks great!

Kathleen + James, a Colonial Country Club Wedding

I had the pleasure of photographing Kathleen and James wedding this past November at Colonial Country Club in Fort Myers.  I loved all the ideas Kathleen told me she was incorporating in her wedding…so artistic and creative!  The wedding day was perfect, everything went smoothly and the weather was ideal.  You have to love Florida in November, my favorite month!

Enjoy their images…and congratulations Kathleen and James!

Starting off…some of Kathleen’s items.  Did you know most brides spend just as much time finding the right shoes as they do their dress (or if you are like me, spent more time finding the shoes!)?  Just a fun fact and I had to point out Kathleen’s shoes…love them!  She was a stunning bride!

This is my absolute fav…I just love it!

And now on to Happily Ever After… 🙂

Fort Myers Family Photograper

*Alison Beyer Photography, in Fort Myers, is the only choice for us!

She has photographed my daughter and our family photographer for more than 7 years and we are constantly amazed at the new and different approaches she takes to our photos.  She is such a creative photographer, utilizing both indoor and outdoor settings, in Fort Myers, and takes into account the personality of her subjects.

The artistry of the photographs is one reason we keep coming back.

Family Photo

We also keep coming back to Alison Beyer Photography because of her professionalism and warmth.  She is one of the nicest people we’ve met and is always willing to work with us and any ideas we may have.  She makes great suggestions and listens.

We love every session we have with Alison, our family photographer!

Hanna, child portraits

I’ve been photographing Hanna since she was about 2 weeks old.  I usually know with Hanna that I am going to have to keep her really entertained and shoot fast!  Hanna loves birds, so on this shoot her stuffed parrot was able to keep her pretty entertained while I got the photos I wanted.  I love all the expressions she has, even the mad ones! Each photo has so much personality, not the typical folded hands in lap, looking at camera and smiling perfectly…no, no… there is definitely life in these photos! When she was 2 we did a scene with her and a bunch of apples (posted one of these below)…it worked out so well, kept her busy -while she ate the apples, I took photos 🙂 This girl really loves watermelon, pretty much could live off of it, so this time I tried it with a watermelon slice…love it! I think I may always have to incorporate food! 😉

Here’s her parrot that kept her entertained!

And here was the “apple shoot” from a few years back!
