The love between mother and child. The mystery and joy of an expectant mother's baby bump. The gentle-giant contrast of a father's palm against his newborn's hand. These are the images that dd, after spending more than 15 years at a Fortune 500 company, decided to devote her life to capturing. In her Fort Lauderdale studio, dd accommodates mother and child, infants, expectant mothers, and families for intimate, emotional portrait sessions, photographing them against the main space's backdrops or within a windowed sunroom lit by the Earth's orbiting flash pan. To prepare them for the session, dd can assist clients in selecting dresses, skirts, and matching tops from the studio's wardrobe with the help of an onsite stylist. In every shoot, dd works to bring out subjects' natural personalities with an eye that only a mother can possess; dd's daughter, Crystal, follows in her footsteps as the shutterbug behind ddPhotographer's sister company, Sugar and Spice Boudoir Photography.
