Hollywood Beach Quince Photo Shoot

Hollywood Beach Quince Photo Shoot

During the summer here in South Florida it is hard to predict the weather as it fluctuates at a drop of a pin. With Jouleana’s Hollywood Beach quince photo shoot, the weather displayed the volatile South Florida weather perfectly. As early morning storms were brewing out at sea and making their way towards the shore we were blessed with some dramatic skies for Jouleana’s quince photo shoot and dramatic skies are always a great thing if you’re a photographer.

Bohemian Inspired Maternity Photo Shoot

Bohemian Inspired Maternity Photo Shoot

I recently photographed maternity pictures for Lindsey who wanted to have a Bohemian inspired maternity photo shoot. It was a pretty easy process for me as Lindsey already had her maternity picture ideas already laid out and all I had to do was execute what she was looking for.

Hollywood Beach Family Session

Hollywood Beach - JC Ruiz Photography

Nothing like a little Hollywood Beach family session to get the week started.

You truly have to love repeat customers. Perhaps you remember the Benedicts from their engagement photos or from their wedding photos.
