I miss you! .. and you!… and you right there!

I truly honestly, sincerely do! I miss my blog! and you!

So here I am! I spent a whole month in Brazil! Taking a much-needed vacation! Its been a month since I came back… however… life is soooo busy that I haven’t had time to do “stuff”! Things I did on a daily basis are backing up in my brain file… so I need to catch up!

Starting here!

My mom is moving back to the US after 5 years!!!!!! Tomorrow is her last day as a Brazil Resident! yay!! Cant wait to have a babysitter “on call”! LOL JUST KIDDING people! My mom means more to me than anything you could ever imagine! So excited!

Back on track… stay focus Renata! Here it is…

Lots going on and very little time, so while baby girl sleeps here I am to update you on the behind the scenes!

Thank you for everyone’s prayers and good wishes… business is picking up and lots of sessions are being booked!

Did I mention I finally registered Photos By Renata? Yep! I’m officially a business owner.working mom/wife. And I’m doing what I love to do! Thank you for your support! if you think you haven’t being part of my journey… think again… you are reading my blog! You are officially responsible for my success!

So anyways… here is whats new:

This week is the last week to take advantage of the $99 portrait session special! You’ll receive the same package advertised on my website ($174 value) for only $99… however, there is a catch! You must pay by the end of this month (08/31) and book it by the end of september (09/30)… super great awesome deal! Hurry!

Im also in the process of updating my website… although I love my free template, its time to grow and expect great things! I will have a new website by late september and I am looking for models… no, not Gisele Bündchen type… not like that… I’m looking for you, your friends, your kiddos! Please refer to my notes on my Facebook page, and if you qualify, please send me an email ASAP… I will be selecting my models next week!

I receive a lot of emails asking for updates, promotions, discounts… unfortunately I do not have time to respond to everyone on a daily basis… liking my Facebook fan page will keep you up to date on EVERYTHING Photos By Renata is up to! So pleeeease! :o) LOVE YOU!

Exciting news is that I am going to be displaying some of my photos at Playfully Panache Children’s Consignment Boutique, a new kids consignment store in Deerfield Beach! I am VERY excited! I love the store sooo much that I’m now a customer and consigner! Highly recommend you to visit!! If you do… take a picture with your phone in front of my photos… post it on my wall on Facebook and I will have a gift for you!! Come on! Celebrate it with me!

If you are a shop owner of any business related to kids or maternity and would like to have my work displayed on your wall… please call me! I will give you a photo shoot in exchange for the space!

Sweet Little Cutie Pie!

9 Apr

What a nice and fun photo shoot!!!

It was no surprise to me that little Brooke would be acting all shy [her mom warned me!].

We walked and walked [looking for Dora!] – little Brooke now started liking me… but she still hesitated!

“Come on vamonos! Everybody let’s go!” – Now she’s my BFF! She held my hand, she chased me, I chased her, we laughed, we sweated [trust me! I got a workout! Hubs would be proud of me!], we sang, we danced… she was as sweet as cupcake!

Thank you Mommy Jaymi for letting me capture Brooke’s special moments! It was a pleasure serving you!!! Cant wait to see Brooke’s Birthday Invitation designed by Devon Marie Design!

I didn’t  have to think twice to say YES to this one –if you really know me and if you have come to my house [specifically my daughter’s room], you know that I’m addicted to bows! No Joke! I have tooons of bows — 5 minutes after my daughter was out in the world she was wearing a headband, don’t believe me? See it for yourself!

[Dont mind my – round*fat*IV filled*exausted*sleepless – face]

And then… Simply Chic Bowtique came along, and now we are looking for 5 beautiful girls – ages 0 to 10 – to pose for my lens with the cutest and most adorable bows… to be featured on www.photosbyrenata.com and www.simplychicbowtique.com

Dear Baby!

Serious tawlk right nah! [Close your eyes and pray with me — ok, close one eye and use the other to read my prayer]

DeEr baby JeZuZ [make is sound like Will Ferrell on Talladega Nights]!  Thank you for my talent! Thank you for my Canon, my clients and baby Kaden… Thank you for an awesome Sunday photo shoot and for making me so happy allowing me to do what I love to do! In JESUS name… AMEN!

It was one of those photo shoots that you are just not sure if it’s going to come out how you envisioned in your head… It’s always a humbling pleasure to photograph a newborn that just came from a belly you photographed a couple of months ago… but a belly is so much easier than a little tiny baby [boooy – if it is!]

Long story short… here is Stacey a couple of months ago with her BEAUTIFUL belly:

Now… STOP! [Breath in…. and breath out…] here is what who came out!

Baby Kaden!

ROOAAAAR!

RIBBIT!

Making Daddy Proud!!

Big Sis McKayla [Miss little Model! – as soon as she saw me clicking and the attention was all hers and no longer her brother’s, she was all smiles! so cute!]

Big special thanks to the amazing talented Rosi from Crochet & More for the beautiful Crochet hats used by Kaden!

Now, open your arms and give me a huuuug!!

==========O=========== [thats my big hug]

Nite Nite!
