Lovely Sparklies

So last week I posted behind the scene pics from my shoot using some AMAZING jewelry from designer Otazu. Love, love their designs. Big thanks to MUA Chantel Hyden for hooking us up with the contact. So for my first shoot with the jewelry I wanted to do something simple. I enlisted help from model: Felicia and hairstylist Hope Shoemaker. The day started rough due to some last minute cancels and the shuffling that entailed, but ended on a good note. Thanks to everyone for their patience! It made the shoot go smoothly and we got some great shots. Here are some of my favorite ones.

Victoria and James are getting married...

James and Victoria are getting married. How exciting. Couples and engagement sessions are always fun.
You get to see other couples interact, hear the story of how they met. It just so happen that James and
Victoria met in Ybor City, so that's where we did our session. Ybor City is a great place to shoot,
but us Floridians know what it means to live here in the summer time. Yep, sporadic rain showers.
It rained midway through the session, and the clouds were virtually dancing in the sky, so lighting
was a ginormous problem. But we found cover to shoot when it rained, and braved the heat when it
stopped. By the time we were done, the three of us were drenched, and not from the rain. lol. It was hot and muggy. All in all in was a great session and I loved the shots we got. Here are some of my favs:
