Merry Christmas!

christmas tree, tis the season, merry christmas 2014Oh my. What a year.  I had this amazing plan to execute this super great family photo of my crew.  I even had the  Christmas card designed.  One version for the studio for sending to clients, the other for family and friend.   But, guess what?? My poor family has been terribly sick for many many days.  Just now we are starting to feel better, even if a less than terrific cough is hanging around. But, at least it is in time to truly enjoy the next two days spent with family, laughing, enjoying meals and being together.  It was my fear that we would still be quarantined away from everyone.  So, although it is not the images I had planned.  Or the card design for that matter.  I wanted to share how, even in chaos, there is blessings.

We are together.  Our health, it is on the mend and we will have our time spent cherishing the memories made over the next couple of days.

A family photo can happen another day.  And trust me, it will. :)

So here is my "stand in" Holiday greeting, with the back of the card design for the clients.   Thank you all so very much for continuing to support BPP! It means more than you will ever know!

Koreshan State Park Family Christmas Session

bpp_RinglerChristmas_2017_-17.jpg

One of my favorite aspects of this awesome job is being a part of my clients lives.  I get to capture the different chapters in their story. I was there to capture the details as Rich and Susan (Finally!) said I do.   But, this year I got to illustrate the next chapter for them.  Their first Christmas photos as a family of 3!

Meet little Brooklyn.  I'm pretty sure she's going to steal your heart as easily as she stole mine.   Hands down, one of the happiest babies I have ever been around.

The role of "parent"  looks fantastic on these two.  I'm going to go out on a limb here... but I think Rich is pretty smitten with the newest leading lady in his life.

So we spent a sun drenched evening at Koreshan State Park, taking in the sights, the sounds, and the smiles all around.

A big Thank You to Rich and Suzy for continuing to have me there to illustrate your story!  I'm in anticipation for the next chapter!

Barefoot Beach Florida Family Session

Fall becomes this whirlwind time of year.  But, I have the opportunity to meet some amazing families.  The Kroll's were one of the awesome families who trusted me with their holiday memories this year.   The joy of family and being together is encompassed brilliantly with this family and their Barefoot Beach session. Barefoot beach is one of my favorite locations this time of year.  It is a bit less traveled, the beach itself is wide, and the sunsets captured are breathtaking.  Barefoot beach is one of those locations that is quintessential south Florida.

This group was so energetic and enjoyed being together with one another.  They truly just wanted to have how much they love one another captured.  From Mom and Dad, Oma and Opa, to the sister in law you can't distinguish from the other sisters.  The closeness shared by this family is nearly enviable.  My siblings and I and our spouses aren't nearly as close as this.

It was such a pleasure to be there to capture these moments for their sweet family.   These are the sessions where I feel the full joy of my chosen profession.

Hilton Marco Island Family Photographer

Today proved yet again why I love this job.   At 10am, I was contacted by a super sweet husband looking to surprise his wife.   With their beach vacation almost over, he knew that his wife really wanted to have family images taken.  So, he and his three girls were on a mission to give mom the session she so desired. Now, for the past 2 days, our area has been having some spectacular lightning storms.  The rain has been intense but the electrical has been truly noteworthy.

We scheduled for 7:30 pm, in the hopes that we would miss the storm.  I drove in rain from Bonita Springs where I live to the Hilton on Marco Island.  To say I was praying is an understatement.  Once I arrived at the resort, it was a miracle.  The storm ceased and we were left with a stunning light to make the family images for mom that much more spectacular.

To have put the session together last-minute, everyone did a fantastic job of coordinating and Mom seemed to be thrilled with Dad, and the girls' surprise.

The beach behind the Hilton Marco Island Resort is wide and gorgeous, and the views are stunning.  It was wonderful to spend a few moments in laughter with this sweet family!  And their girls - my goodness! They are stunning! But, I have to brag on Mom and Dad, because not only are the beautiful, but they were sweet, well-mannered and had the most beautiful of spirits.  Their parents are doing a fantastic job!

So Thank You Keswani Family for allowing me to capture you vacation memories on Marco Island this year!
