Body Positive Photoshoot is Life Changing

Yes Women It’s True to Love yourself is to move mountains and what an amazing act of love it is when you gift yourself with a photoshoot like Maricela from The Twins PR did for herself a few months ago before she got pregnant with her baby. And what a gift it was for us to work on something so uplifting and more then special with her before she started her journey into motherhood.

Take a glimpse below of the shoot that we did at Beyond Studios with this fun Cali girl; and if you like what you see don’t hesitate to reach out to us!


Let GO and Live Alot!

I am happy to start this rejuvenating journey into nude photography again…it’s been almost a decade. And I'm so blessed to have Lu grace my camera on an early summer's morning at the creek. I learned through this process that letting go of fear is the best thing you can do for yourself. And letting go of whatever that doesn't serve your good nature is so ideal. So let's not be afraid of who we truly are and love ourselves fully because life is short and we should live it up! Get in touch with me if you are ready to live a little bit outside your comfort zone because you can be even more then who you think you are now. 

 

Glow Vicky Glow

Me and my family started practicing yoga with Ms. Vicky at Grace. Studios in Silver Spring and our lives have improved drastically since then. We are healthier and way more laid back now that we practice yoga and meditation. We value this gift she gave through her light and we wanted develop some fun yoga maternity portraits at this safe and beautiful space.

Thank you for the love, your awesomeness and your all around amazing vibes Ms Vicky … can’t wait to meet your baby boy! Also a huge special thanks to Grace Studios !!

A Bundle of Joy

Priscila S. was expecting her baby boy when she reached out to us to be our Maternity model for our bundle of joy promo. It was an amazing experience to be at her home photographing her and this love for baby Pedro Henrique before and after his birth. It is so rewarding to be able to do these types of portraits.

We want you to take away from this experience how incredibly valuable your family is and how these photographs are vital for you and your family collection of photographs. I'm so passionate about this new service and I pray you take the opportunity to take advantage of this deal. Contact us today regarding this and let's make some great memories!

Bundle of Joy: Maternity and Newborn Photo Sessions

We decided to expand our family this year as well as our services. With the coming of our newest edition, baby Enzo, who is the most sweetest and delicious creature next to his big brother Rocco, I was inspired to do a two in one photo sessions for families who were expecting and wanted to document these special moments. It's the Bundle of Joy photo package. It's a great way to savor the memories of a beautiful milestone. 

Check out me and my family in Miami and Enzo new born portraits here in our home below. We're so happy and so blessed and here's to spreading the love!

Four is Better than Three

Words by Bruna Ladeira

Despite living a few blocks from each other for most of their lives, Lucas and Luisa met about 3 years ago, when they fell in love. Fast forward to the happily ever after, the family of three awaits their fourth member: a baby boy! When the parents-to-be aren't spending quality family time, you'll find Lucas teaching gym and coaching local youth soccer teams, while the trendy and fashionable mom, Luisa, manages a clothing store where she puts her sense of style to good use. Fortunately for us here at the Studio, the busy family took some time off to spend the afternoon through our lens.

The expectant family came out to Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, MD, this past winter, on a surprisingly warm day, to capture this moment in their lives. It was great spending time with this beautiful and witty family. These images really reflect the love and excitement Lucas and Luisa have for each other and their growing family. And it’s clear this little girl is excited to meet her little brother. Thank you Lucas and Luisa for your great energy!
