2017 Naples Senior Personality Portrait Session http://www.mickluvin.com/blog/2017/10/2017-naples-senior-personality-portrait-session Check out this gorgeous brainy beauty's Senior Personality Portraits!  She exemplifies beauty, grace, love and light!  She flawlessly pulls off the modern sophisticated look just as easily as the retro chic look - bringing to mind something of a modern-day Marilyn Monroe meets Charlize Theron.  Fun and flirty meets thoughtful reflection - she brought it all to the session!

The wardrobe and makeup - all her.  I only requested that she bring a coca cola bottle! 

Thank you for gracing my camera and web site with your bright eyes and radiant smile, Miss Angela!  Keep making Senior Year magical!  I can't wait to see what the future holds for you!

Retro Car Hood Valentine Love http://www.mickluvin.com/blog/2017/2/retro-car-hood-valentine-love Sharing a few favorites from my favorite car hood - so much fun photographing my own kids every year on this car, as well as a model or two!  

And, my homemade Valentine's this year, courtesy of the local Dollar Store and pinterest.  Heart Straws with Valentine prints that read "Soda" You Wanna Be My Valentine?  Cute enough I say!

My Christmas Cards - Or the only place my kids are in snow - Updated http://www.mickluvin.com/blog/2016/11/my-christmas-cards---or-the-only-place-my-kids-are-in-snow---updated Just realized I have not blogged in over a year!!! Ooops.  I've not fallen off a cliff, I swear. I have had so many incredibly gorgeous clients and sessions this year, just haven't made the time to share or blog.  

But I'm re-visiting this personal post from 2 years ago to give it a quick update.  Take a peak at my personal Christmas Cards for the past 7 years.  Still, my kids have never seen snow, or been out of the state of Florida, yet I've got this nutty compulsion to create wintery scenes and images each and every year!  Well, I entertain myself, at least.  

Enjoy! and please... do me a solid?  Have yourself a very Merry Christmas!

Beach Babe Sailor Moon http://www.mickluvin.com/blog/2015/9/beach-babe-sailor-moon I am so late taking my littlest's 4th Birthday pics this year, but better late than never! Found the cutest little Sailorette dress for her at Cracker Barrel of all places, so I thought a beach session with a sailor hat and looking glass would suit her.  She really knows how to sparkle for the camera, such a smiley happy spirit, and since the beach is her favorite place this session only lasted about 10 minutes before she was water-logged! Happy Belated Birthday, my sweets!

Endless Summer Before/After of Car Hood Series http://www.mickluvin.com/blog/2015/8/endless-summer-before/after-of-car-hood-series Just wanted to pop on and share a few recent edits - the SOOC (straight out of camera) shot along with the post-photoshop heavy-handed editing.  All backgrounds used are landscapes or beachscapes taken by me in the past few years, and all of Naples areas.  Just wanted to create a Beachy, Summery, retro endless love type of vibe, and these were fun edits I found the time to squeeze in.  Hope you enjoy!

Lazy Summer and Recap of Recent Work http://www.mickluvin.com/blog/2015/6/lazy-summer-and-recap-of-recent-work Summertime!  My favorite time of year!  I enjoy these long lazy days and try to make it to the beach as often as possible for our famous Naples Summer Sunsets.  I've been enjoying my tropical frame of mind so much this Summer that I've been negligent in posting and sharing.  Below are a few of my favorite shots from recent sessions - hope you enjoy - more to come on Monday!  (I didn't say which Monday though....)

Glimpses of Naples http://www.mickluvin.com/blog/2015/5/glimpses-of-naples My favorite time of year is back!  Everything just holds that golden, shimmer that is both nostalgic and modern all at once.  That carefree, Endless Summer feeling that is Naples - at least until the pumpkins arrive.  Just a few recent snapshots of this and that, here and there, everything Naples :)

Real Room Template Sets Now Available http://www.mickluvin.com/blog/2015/5/real-room-template-sets-now-available Have crafted a few templates from my real estate adventures.  These are for pro photographers to help clients visualize how a 16x20 or 30x40 might look on a wall in an actual room.  

Honestly, 8x10s are for tabletops.  Clients need to see big in order to think big, and these templates will help you show them just how awesome their own walls could be looking.  

Just client the image to get to the Etsy link. :)

Serious Ballerina http://www.mickluvin.com/blog/2015/2/serious-ballerina I love it when I get to photograph such grace and beauty all at once!  Miss C brought it - gave me fierce and serious and wonderment and went above and beyond.  

Ballet is her passion and while she offered plenty of ballet moves and poses, I was more interested in capturing the essence of her with these portraits: deep, elegant, introspective, graceful; essentially what every Ballerina aspires to be!  

Thank you for viewing and sharing!

Wild Things http://www.mickluvin.com/blog/2015/2/wild-things So its been a very very long time since I've done any fun whimsical just-for-me type edits that I used to do quite frequently years ago.  So I'm sharing a few fun, whimsical edits I tried recently.  All animals came from the wonderful digi-scrap kit of WaterLoProject called "In the Zoo."  Enjoy!

Valentine's Day v.2015 http://www.mickluvin.com/blog/2015/2/valentines-day-v-2015 So I finally made it to a filed of sorts to take V-Day pics of my kiddos.  I've never been too good with props, like to keep it as simple as possible and this year was no exception - all I brought was a short ladder and a heart bunting from Target.  Simple. Of course, Grandma had given my dd a dress with a doll wearing a matching dress - so that settled any possible debate about attire, lol!  Not sure yet how I'll turn these into Valentines - stay tuned, will post once I figure it out!

Best of 2014 http://www.mickluvin.com/blog/2015/1/best-of-2014 So late in posting this, as I haven't had much down time since the Holiday rush, but better late then never.  HAPPY NEW YEAR, one and all!  I loved 2014!  It introduced me to more amazing people and reacquainted me with many familiar faces too! Every single face, every single session, I loved every bit of it and I thank you all so much for your support!  Cheers to a healthy, happy, beautiful 2015!

Naples Academy of Ballet - Nutcracker http://www.mickluvin.com/blog/2014/12/naples-academy-of-ballet---nutcracker Truly wowed by the Naples Academy of Ballet performers starring in the Nutcracker production! The dancing was spectacular, as were the costumes and the stage sets!  Both my kids loved it, so I'm thinking we'll make this a new holiday tradition!  

I hope you enjoy these snapshots I took while enjoying the show.  I was seated in the rear (really, there was not a bad seat in the house), and used my 100mm on stealth mode (no flash).

My Christmas Cards - Or the only place my kids are in snow http://www.mickluvin.com/blog/2014/12/my-christmas-cards---or-the-only-place-my-kids-are-in-snow Just took a peak at my personal Christmas Cards for the past 5 years, and it dawned on me: my kids have never seen snow, or been out of the state of Florida, but yet, I'm drawn to creating winter-y images and making them appear in snow!  Lol.  Cray Cray!  But so fun!  

Another thing about my personal cards, is I always print on photographic paper (lately with metallic finish) as 5x7 -so they are one-sided and frame-able.  

Enjoy!
