Wow! Just love this family! Bill came to me for his headshot session, and as we started chatting, he thought surprising his wife Regina with a portrait session for her and her daughters would be the perfect gift for her Birthday. He planned it all out! You see Bill loves his wife so much and he wanted her to be pampered that day! Well we pampered her with hair and makeup, a fun portrait session, a nice lunch and some champagne! It is so much fun doing these types of sessions with mothers and daughters and to have two daughters to share this portrait experience is even better! And what tops that off, you ask? Well, having your husband and your daughters boyfriends join you for portraits too! We photographed beautiful portraits that day and were able to document the love between everyone. We designed a beautiful album and wall art for them to enjoy everyday! Thanks so much Bill for bringing your beautiful wife and daughters in! It was a pleasure getting to know all of you and so happy that you chose me to document this!

During the session, one of Regina's daughters Elise showed me a picture of all of them from many years ago.  I was so excited to redo this pose for them so many years later.  You can see this image at the end of the post.  Check out the slideshow for more of their images too!

And Bill, I love the way you said it - Bill tells Regina "I love you times three".

Happy Friday everyone!

Senior portrait sessions are such a favorite at the studio. I love seeing those smiles from young, promising Seniors.

And it’s even more fun when they come with friends or family. Such heavens!

This session we had two sisters, Emma and Abby. Emma was a Senior last year, she just graduated. Congratulations Emma!

She came to the studio with her sister, Abby, to document this special time in her life. Sisters’ love, yes? I know!

I had so much fun with the sisters and they look so natural in front of the camera.

Well, Seniors love to be pampered. I mean, who wouldn’t?

So, to cater to their need and ensure they are satisfied as well, we have structured the Senior session to include a style consult in your home, professional hair and makeup, a photoshoot, lunch, and your big reveal (where you get to see your images that have been fully retouched and allowed to choose your favorite). Man, I love the look on their faces when they see their pictures at the reveal. Well, who wouldn’t be shocked? Amazing doesn’t begin to describe the pictures at the reveal. Trust me, you have to experience this.

Teens are not left out too! Sure, we have a special section just for teens! They are coming into their own and before you know it they are off to college. Yikes, where does the time go? I think they deserve to have this fleeting time documented. Mom and dad need these pictures to remind them of the changes that their teen has gone through. And trust me, the teen section is just as wonderful as the Seniors section.

Okay, I know you are wanting to do your session already. To schedule a teen or a senior portrait session, please give us a call at 727-599-1073. Talk to you soon!

A senior portrait session! Yeah, I love working with these young amazing Seniors with a promising future. I love the fact that I get to engrave a special mark on their memories – whenever they look at their senior portraits, they won’t just remember the wonderful experience but the person behind the camera also.

And this week we had two graduating Seniors from Impact Basketball Academy here in Sarasota – Bri, and James.

They both came to me to share this special time together and the session was a blast. We had so much fun!

Yes, you guessed right, they are both basketball players and I enjoyed the cute banter between the two of them on who might be a better ball player. They are such a cute couple, I must confess. So cute!

Bri and James are both from Australia so they live abroad without family and mainly rely on friends and each other for support during the school year.

Bri was a Senior last year and James will be a Senior this year. I learned that they just spent the summer back in Australia visiting with family, they should be about 4 hours apart, and were hoping to get to see each other during the summer.

And I had the pleasure of meeting Bri’s mom before the shoot. She is really cool. She chose the gold dress and I knew right away that it would be best for the shoot. Well, I will let you be the judge of that!

Bri’s mom had to do her big reveal over the internet, because she was back in Australia, and she was just as blown away by the beautiful portraits of her daughter!

Bri is a lot more than just an amazing athlete; she is smart and beautiful too!

And check out how handsome James is in that tux - You found a keeper Bri!

Wishing them all the best in their basketball career!

Contact us today for your senior portrait session and you are sure to get a wonderful experience that would last a lifetime.

It will be pretty difficult answering the question – what is the best part of your job?

Why? It is because I love my job as a Sarasota Photographer!

I love so many different aspects of my career as a photographer.  From photographing headshots, to beauty portraits, to high school senior portraits.  And the best part is I get to service all of the different types of clients.  

And on this day, what I love more – working with a business to cater to their branding needs. It always feels great helping to take a business to the next level and this week Leann Spotford of Creative Content Connect and myself had the pleasure of working with a Real Estate Attorney – Nicole Ryskamp.

Nicole is not just a Real Estate Attorney but a licensed Real Estate Agent and we really enjoyed working closely with her to bring her vision together for the photography and wardrobe colors.

Trust me, Leann and I made sure that everything flowed nicely!  We created amazing images that befit Nicole’s big plans.

Using the studio and her home for the shots, we were able to give her amazing portraits she could use in different avenues of her business – from website to print marketing to social media and lots more.

I was able to catch a sneak peak of Nicole's new website the other day and it looks awesome!  I can't wait to share it with you!  Website link coming soon!

Do you want a branding session like this? Then, give us a shout at 727-599-1073. Christine Photography is always there to help create your personal branding session. Just place a call through, let’s learn more about your business and see how we can help you take your business to the next level.

Meet Morgan, my triple threat. She also attends the basketball school. I call her my triple threat because she is gorgeous, smart, and athletic. A great combination, right?

You may recognize her from the pageantry circuit. She was Miss Siesta Key Teen in the Miss Florida Pageant.

Morgan and I had a great time shooting. After the studio shoot, we went to St Armands Circlie where there was such yummy light.

Okay, Morgan is definitely a daddy’s girl. Haha! Daddy showed up to the session and he was my assistant through the shooting. Thanks for the support, dad. Anything for his little girl!

Dad knows how beautiful his daughter is of course but he was blown away when he saw the images. Such a beauty!

Thanks to us, he will always have these images to remind him of his daughter’s teen years.

Well, this was not a Senior Portrait Session as Morgan is not a Senior yet but we do hold a teen session at Christine Nicole Photography.

I think there is never a wrong time to document your child. Children grow up so quickly and before you know it they are 23 years old already and about to graduate college. Yeah, that’s my son.

This makes the teen session one of my favorite sessions as parents get to document this fleeting time in their child’s life.

By the way, Morgan will be present at our Limited Portraits with Santa session as she makes a great elf too! What’s more? She loves working with kids. So, pay us a visit at the studio let Morgan help you write your letters to Santa.

If you would like to book your teen session give us a call at the studio at 727-599-1073 or contact us here.
