Family Session at Anne's Beach | Florida Keys Photographer

You might have noticed a little shift in Sonju Photography - less poseyposey in the park, more documentary-style shoots, etc. And while I'd love nothing more than to offer purely documentary sessions, I know there's still a need and want for posed, camera aware shots. While this blog post is to highlight how freaking beautiful Molly's family is, it's also an example how a dash of lifestyle/documentary really is the cherry on top. 

Kids will be kids. They're not built to stand still and smile. 

You CAN have it all in one session. And it doesn't have to suck!

I drove down and met Molly and her extended family in the Keys during their vacation. Apparently only cute kids are made is this group! I had such a blast (memorizing their names) and proving I wasn't a boring photographer. Here are some of my favorites:

Please people. More sessions in the Keys.

Black Friday / Anniversary Sale!

Cristina & Marcos | Coconut Grove Woman's Club Wedding

I knew Cristina and Marcos' wedding day would be a blast when we were chasing off dinosaur-sized iguanas at their engagement session. Luckily, there weren't any dinosaurs at their wedding, but there might have been a horse...

Congratulations Cristina & Marcos, and thank you for choosing me to photograph your love story!

Life Saver Pool Fences | Business Storytelling

Eric Lupton is the President of Life Saver Pool Systems, based out of Delray Beach FL. He asked if I'd shoot a business storytelling session for his company before I even knew I wanted to offer these sessions. Drowning is the number one cause of death in children under five in several states, and it's Pool Saver's goal to protect every pool on Earth. 

I followed Eric and the people behind Pool Saver over two days - the first day in the warehouse with the guys, and the second day with an old high school classmate Casey as he installed a fence. Who knew pool fences were so, cool? 

For more information on Life Saver Pool Fences, please check out their website or call 1-800-282-3836 and tell 'em Sonj sent you. 

"This isn’t a car alarm. It isn’t a lock on your door. This is the pool fencing that will keep your children safe from your home’s greatest danger."
