The Tween years. These years are emotional, confusing, horrifying.... I could go on and on. I remember, those years too well. Quite possibly the hardest part of our lives. Such an important part of a young woman's development is her self esteem and how she sees herself.   You can give her a gift that would allow her to see herself in a whole new light and if you could take some of the pressure off these hard years. Why do these girls take so many selfies? Because they want to be seen and loved, but most of all they want to love themselves. We had mirrors... our daughters have their phones. Let's do it right.

This is a great time for documentary style photography. Tweens are coming out of the baby years and into the teen years and need to know they are special. Also can be taken from a family photography session and spend time with just her or him.

Fabiola is the photographer and Manolo is her assistant and so much more! He is wonderful at making the babies smile, he makes amazing props and a mean café Cubano. 

They met in Tampa and have lived in beautiful Sarasota since the late 80's. 

They are a great husband & wife team!
