My Special Lady….{Cleopatra’s Heart}

So for those of you who know me, or follow my blog, you probably know I have a 2 year old little girl… 2 and a half to be exact.

She is my heart…. my sidekick… my sppecial lady…  she makes me smile with the world on fire…

today we made it all about her.. even though we have a “new” addition in our house, we always make sure our little lady feels special.. \


 she was the Queen.

Here she is… enjoying the greek festival… and her first ride!!

yes, we gave her a dart... she's got a good arm!


saying, "I want that one!"


and last but not least…just one of the little guy….

Exclusive Artist Sneak Peek…. Cleopatra Photography {Rockstars} Fort Myers and Naples Musician Photogtraphy

Hello everyone… okay so onto the good stuff… for all of you that read my last post.. enough of the mushy stuff;)

So this couple may look familiar to you on my blog! 

I did their You and Me session in downtown Fort Myers, and their Wedding at Grandezza last year.

Over time we have actually become (me and my husband I mean) friends with this star studded couple…

without further ado…


10 years young… Cleopatra Photography {Cleopatra’s Heart} Fort Myers and Naples photography

To all my followers here is a little insight into my personal life… Yesterday my hubby and I enjoyed an amazing dinner out alone and once again I was reminded of why I love him so much…. He is my best friend.

Here is a little snippet of what I wrote to him yesterday… I’ll spare you from reading the entire novel;)

 to my wonderful husband:

Well,  Happy Valentines Day babe….

here we are, 10 years later, married with 2 kids and on the daily grind……. I never imagined I would be so happy with some of the most simple things in life. You taught me how to appreciate a simple smile and laugh at myself. You believe in me and taught me to believe in myself when I thought the world was against me.  You give me the courage to reach further and achieve more, and most importantly… unconditional love…. 

 I remember the day we met. The way I felt after our first kiss and the way our souls connected the first time you held me….

Forever yours,


If someone were to ask me… what the secret to real love and a happy marriage was (besides all the usual responses; honesty, loyalty, respect, etc. etc…)… I’d say… there is no secret… I’m not sure everyone will experience true love… what I do know… is when you do, you’ll just know.

Here’s a peek at my day….
