Jessie + Jim tie the knot!

This wedding was the epitome of a Colorado wedding. Sweet, serene, down-home… There were dogs and horses, apple orchards surrounding a barn, a rusty old truck and a magnificent view of the Rockies. The couple was just as sweet and down-home. Not to mention, hysterical and outgoing. Add an amazing set of friends and family, that traveled all the way from the east coast to be with them, and you’ve got yourself an unforgettable wedding! Jessie and Jim, I can’t thank you enough for inviting me to capture your day and making me feel like part of your family. I wish for you to look back on these pictures each anniversary and remember what an incredible day it was 🙂 God bless you all.




Just one more for this big guy’s mom… A little Jedi practice while the grownups were toasting the bride and groom 🙂 Its doesn’t get better than this.

Introducing Holiday MiniSessions!

Summer is over & school has begun… Can you believe it!? The most wonderful time of year is right around the corner and so are the hectic schedules that go along with it! To help kick off the season right, Pure Images Studio is teaming up with {the amazing} Bella Rosa Photography to bring you Holiday MiniSessions! Before the craziness begins, let us help you take a moment to pause and enjoy your family during one of our mini photo sessions, and while your at it, get those holiday cards crossed off the to-do list! So book your session before the season sneaks up on you!


What is “Vintage Christmas”, “Beach Bragging”, and “Urban Holidays”?

Each minisession listed will have its own location and theme. Vintage Christmas will be held in a wooded area; stretched out Banyan trees, rustic fences, tall grass, old fashion bridges, and not to mention the best part… a fireplace! Out in the middle of the woods! For the next session, we’re taking it to the beach! What’s a South Florida holiday without a little sand between your toes? Lastly, Urban Holidays will be our downtown photoshoot. Think tall buildings, back alleys, colorful architecture, hip & modern, but also playful & fun!  Please note that themes are only available on the corresponding dates. When booking your session, if you like a theme, it needs to be booked on that particular day.

How does a mini session differ from a regular portrait session?

Mini sessions are 25 minute sessions at a predetermined location and offered on a limited number of specific dates throughout the year. Regular portrait sessions are 1-2 hours, at any location of the client’s choice, and offered at any time throughout the year.

How do I reserve a session?

Sessions are reserved on a first come, first serve basis. Please email me to check availability and reserve your date! A full deposit is required in order to reserve your spot. Click on the Minisessions page to pay by credit card through PayPal, or call me if you prefer to mail a check.

What if it rains or the weather is bad on the day of the mini session?

If the weather is bad, we will reschedule for a date as soon as possible after the session date.

What are mini accordion albums?
Mini Accordion Albums are sized 3×3 — perfect to fit in your wallet or purse! They are available in sets of 3 and only offered with special promotions throughout the year. The accordion albums will include 6-8 images from your session. Here is an example…

Tell me more about the holiday cards offered.

You will have three different design options to choose from. All cards are 5×7 printed on premium cardstock, white envelopes are included.

Can I see the three card options now?

Each design is custom to coordinate with your minisession photo. Once the photo is edited, I will send  you the options to choose from.

What should we wear?

There’s no right or wrong answer to this question. Here’s my motto: If it makes you feel comfortable and confident, that’s what you’ll project in your photos. So show up in your Christmas pj’s if you want! My goal is for us to have fun and capture that magic that exists within each family I have the privilege of shooting. But still, I understand your concern… some shapes and colors do look better on camera, so here are a few tips + suggestions:

– Don’t matchy-match. Coordinate.

-Bright, fun colors always look great on camera. Red & green is a very obvious holiday combo, so maybe try red & turqouise or green, hot pink & orange! Mix it up!

– Keep in mind you are dressing the family as a whole, ie. keep patterns to a minimum.

– Accessorize! Hats, scarves, belt buckles, fun jewelry, hair pieces, bright-colored shoes. Accessories add fun elements to your photos! Just don’t do them all at the same time ; )

Here are a few examples that I put together to give you an idea of mixing colors, patterns, & textures….

{Just a side note, don’t get discouraged trying to dress for Florida weather.  Granted, thick scarves and argyle sweaters would make for great holiday photos! Its just not realistic here before January.  Take the ideas I’m giving you here and roll with it, just make sure to dress in light cotton fabrics instead of heavy wools! Don’t forget to put your own spin on things & have fun!}
