Hi Beauty Babes,
Here is one of the many beautiful brides I got to work on this summer. Mr. and Mrs. Aldrete wed on the Fourth of July at The Castaway. I had my own wedding reception at this amazing venue just last year so I was super excited to hear they would be having their ceremony and reception there!
Sandy wanted a dramatic smoky eye (I LOVE when brides go smoky!) so I started off with her eyes first to avoid eyeshadow fall out.
Check out this amazing shot of their wedding rings on the heel of her Louboutin! #sexy
Here’s our smoky eyed beautiful bride
Castaway has a stunning gazebo that served as the center of the ceremony.
Sandy is a “bling-loving” bride, as you can tell from her sparkling dress, bejeweled bracelet and radiant roses.
I love this picture of them. I’m also obsessed with those floating flower balls as aisle decorations- total showstoppers!
Sandy and Oscar’s guests danced the night away under the stars at Castaway.
Check out the breath-taking cake and mirrored disco-ball stand underneath!
…and they literally had fireworks on their wedding day. Congratulations Oscar and Sandy! You two make a beautiful couple. Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day 🙂

Hello beauties! I recently got the chance to work on Sharon’s belly for a maternity shoot, for the second time. You may remember parents-to-be John and Sharon from this previous post when Sharon was pregnant with baby Derek. Derek’s theme was airplanes and travel, so we painted the world on her belly and it turned out amazing. This time, it was baby Rebecca’s turn, and Mommy Sharon wanted the girliest theme ever: butterflies, orchids, lots of pink and of course, glitter! DS Photography was on hand to capture the moments.
I adore this lovely couple!

It was very surreal having little Derek there to “help us” with baby Rebecca’s painting…just about a year and a half ago, we were doing the same for him!
I love this one of Derek, contemplating his next streak of blue.
