Coral Springs Family Day in the Life | The H Family

Describe the type of session you want. Why is it meaningful for you to document?

"We are selling this house and I want to document the history here. It’s meaningful to document because I brought my new family to this home as the twins were 18 months and we had just gotten married and found out I was pregnant again. We brought our baby home here and have made this house our own."

What might drive you crazy right now in your life, but one day you'll inevitably miss?

"Feeding all of these small, always hungry kids in this small kitchen." (SPOT ON. Count how many bagels make an appearance in this blog post.)

History. Your family's memories. Most of them are created right at home. And for the H family, they knew that with the upcoming move, they wanted something to document the memories they've shared with their four year old twins, a two year old, and their amazing backyard. From breakfast at the table, games in the backyard, roller skates, and a surprise Target run with Abuela and Abuelo, here are a few of my favorite from a Day in the Life of the H family...

An Adoption Story - N & N

Adoptions, man. 

These moments in the hallways of the Broward County Courthouse before a scheduled adoption hearing are magic. The anticipation of finally becoming a "forever family" after what I'm sure already feels like forever, case workers greeting the children like their own, the last minute tie-tuck ins, final reviews of legal documents... I was falling for this family just minutes after meeting them face to face. I'm so grateful I get to document such special days in my clients' lives. 

Did you know I have a special rate for Broward County Adoption Day photography coverage? If you or someone you know is about to change a child's life forever, please consider having it documented! There's even time for some lovely portraits at the park before you head out for lunch. Click the button below to get in touch! 

Karina & Karlos | Wedding at The Old Grove, Miami Florida

Just one month after Hurricane Irma, Karina and Karlos were married in the beautiful gardens of the Old Grove in Homestead, Florida. Thank goodness they had minimal damage to the avocado grove, as the lush greenery and rustic charm was the perfect venue for their wedding day. 

Karina and Karlos opted not to do a first look, but still wanted to say a prayer together before their ceremony. We arranged them to meet in the hotel lobby and we got to witness sweet moments as they squeezed each other's hands and spoke some words about their future. As if that wasn't magical enough, we dodged the rain just in time for their intimate reception with details planned by Jo Irigoyen Events. 

Here are a few of my favorites from their October wedding:

Venue : The Old Grove
Planner : Jo Irigoyen Luxury Events
DJ : Vision DJs
Florals : W & W Flowers and Events
Hair : Jael Garcia
Makeup Artistry : Makeup by JennyFro

Rising Tide Car Wash | Business Storytelling Sessions - Day in the Life

Rising Tide Car Wash is one of my favorite South Florida businesses. I know what you're thinking, "A CAR WASH, Sonj? Really?" 

Yes. Hear me out. 

Rising Tide's primary employment mission is to hire adults with autism. From their website, "Through intensive training, team building and caring for the community, Rising Tide sets its employees up for success. With this model, Rising Tide has a goal to provide people with autism with an opportunity to build a career and achieve an independent lifestyle." 

So not only are you getting an AMAZING wash and wax, you're supporting a business that supports those that are often overlooked and forgotten. 

I live within walking distance of their newest location in Margate, and spent a day with their employees and couldn't wipe the smile off my face. I'll be honest, I went into this shoot not knowing what to expect. I wondered if I'd connect with the employees on a personal level, or if I'd even find their work interesting. I left at the end of the day with my face sore from smiling and feeling like I made fifteen new friends. The amount of focus and dedication these guys put into their work, and the way their managers support them throughout the day is purely amazing. 

I'm so excited to broaden my "Day in the Life" offerings to local businesses. They're a great way to humanize your business and show customers what the experience is all about. I even snapped some new "head shots" of the employees so the management would have some killer images to use as featured photos on their social media.

Here are a few of my favorites from my day with Rising Tide Car Wash in Margate, Florida:
