These two cuties stopped by the studio a few weeks ago for their holiday portrait.  Mom is owner of Pretty Please Couture, a fabulous boutique in Ft. Lauderdale.  We were able to check out the latest mural in the Downtown Hollywood Mural Project by artist Logan Hicks.  I’m loving the new landscape in the Downtown Hollywood area.  My backdrops are always changing and the inspiration is never ending.

The studio is closed from now until January 4.  We are available by appointment only.  I am currently booking custom portrait sessions both in the studio and on location for January.   Schedule your session for January before the end of 2015 and receive a $100 credit to be used towards your order.

Call the studio or shoot me an email.

When your custom portrait session begins at 8:30 in the morning, you arrive at the studio still in your jammies.  And there’s no other word to describe that but “adorable”.

We are almost finished with all of our holiday portrait sessions at the studio.  This Saturday is the last day we are photographing families.  We will be open until December 19, and then we will be closed until the first week of January.  Time for us to take a breather and spend some holiday time with our families.

It has been such a pleasure meeting so many new clients and reconnecting with old ones.  2015 will definitely go down as the best year yet.

See you soon,

New murals going up around the studio makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.  This amazing undersea turtle mural is done by none other fantastic artist, Ernesto Maranje.  It’s only a fraction of the beauty that is across the street from the studio.  We were lucky to get down there and grab a few portraits before it started to pour.  Ernesto was working on it when we stopped and we were lucky enough to meet him.

The holiday deadline has come and gone.  We are currently booking custom portrait sessions for January 2016.  Set yourself apart by sending out a rocking New Years card.

Lifestyle family portrait session at a horse ranch?!?  Yes, PLEASE!!!!  Gorgeous location, gorgeous girls, and gorgeous light.  Every image from this family’s custom portrait session was a winner.  These few in particular really make me smile.

Trick or Treat at Courtney Studios

Halloween was a little over two weeks ago, but it’s never too late to share the amazing portraits of the kiddos who came out for our “Trick or Treat to Benefit Mobile School Pantry” event at Courtney Studios.  I am overwhelmed by the participation and support of so many friends in the community.  With your support, we raised enough money to provide a complete Thanksgiving dinner to 10 families in Hollywood.  Together we definitely can make a difference to children in South Florida and say “NO” to hunger.

All my love,

This has been a wonderful journey with this family.  I started photographing them a year ago when they started the “Pick 3:  Your year in pictures” portrait package.  Maternity, newborn, and now  to the first birthday.

Happy Birthday sweet Slade!  Thank you for sharing your birthday with me at Courtney Studios.
