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.

Being a Color Blind Photographer

Everglades dirt road

Hi, I’m JC Ruiz and I’m a color blind photographer. Your turn, “Hi JC.” Funny thing about being a color blind photographer is the misconception that I must take amazing black and white photographs or I must have a hard time with my post processing. Well 1 out of 2 isn’t bad, I do take some amazing black and white photographs hahahahahahaha I kid I kid. No but seriously I do hahahahaha I’m pretty sure if I never mentioned I was color blind people would never know the difference.

You truly have to love repeat customers. Perhaps you remember the Benedicts from their engagement photos or from their wedding photos. Like the continuing circle of life I have photographed their maternity photos. There was a rumor circulating that usually a week after I photograph an expecting couple they have their baby. Unfortunately Alex and Hayley have dispelled that rumor.

Pembroke Pines Maternity Shoot

Pembroke Pines Maternity Shoot

It would only be right that I photograph Dean and Jenean’s maternity shoot after doing their engagement and wedding photos. It is part of the natural progression of things and who am I to stop the natural progression? They couldn’t have picked a better day to shoot as well. Sunny skies and cool breezes were on tap for us that day. A recipe for a great time and even better photos.

South Beach Maternity Shoot

South Beach maternity shoot

Taking photos is difficult enough but trying to take maternity photos in the middle of summer in Miami is just brutal; however, Kia and Hayward were up for the task. The humidity was no joke that day. Thank God I suggested we shoot around 6:30 in the evening. I don’t even want to begin to think what a midday shoot in that sun would be like.

Downtown Miami Photo Shoot With Camille Kaye

Miami portrait photography

I’m super excited to share this blog post with y’all about the photo shoot I did this past Wednesday with Camille Kaye. I knew Camille as the quiet waitress working at Miami Prime, but it wasn’t until my brother-in-law, Dean, told her I was a photographer did we get a chance to sit down and talk. I showed her my work and we talked for about 30 minutes and she wanted me to give her some ideas as to a potential shoot. Camille then proceeded to show me her website, www.camillekaye.com, that I learned she was a very talented singer. I’m dead serious about her talent. Fast forward to late Tuesday night when we were texting back and forth and decided to do a the shoot Wednesday afternoon. I don’t think any of us thought it would have gone so well.
