Samantha's Bridal Shower

Samantha's Bridal Shower

So, you may not know this…but I was in a sorority. 

I never thought I was the stereotypical “sorority girl” type. But shortly after I started at the University of Central Florida (before I transferred to Western Kentucky University to study photojournalism,) I found myself joining Alpha Epsilon Phi.

It had its ups and downs, as with everything, but I’m so glad it was a part of my life for those two years at UCF. 

Anyway, I saw one of my sorority sisters, Amanda, at an AEPhi South Florida Alumnae event earlier this year. I hadn’t seen her in 10 years. It was great catching up with her, and my other sisters at the brunch.

Amanda asked me a few months ago if I could photograph her sister’s bridal shower, and of course I said yes. 

I loved meeting her family…Amanda and her sister, Samantha, look so much alike. And Samantha was beautiful. When her fiancé, J.R. came by, it was impossible not to notice how in love they are. It made my heart so happy.

I want to wish Samantha and J.R. the best! Thank you for letting me be a part of your bridal shower!

Mr. ONEderful - Jace's 1st Birthday

This little guy had the BEST first birthday party.

His parents decked out a party room in a high-rise on Brickell Ave. in Miami. When I walked through the door, I was smacked (lovingly!) in the face with the most delicious smell of chocolate and caramel.

There was a large table full of goodies: Cake balls, Rice Krispie squares (some had my photos on them!), cupcakes, cookies iced in white, black and gold, chocolate covered strawberries dressed in tuxedos, chocolate covered Oreos topped with chocolate-shaped top hats and bowties and of course, the actual birthday cake! 

The kids had a giant ball pit to play in and soft shapes to climb on, and the adults had fun with the photo backdrop (and the bubbly drink bar).

It was awesome. See for yourself...
