Hi Everyone!!! So I have been away from the blog for a little while but I’m back and ready to blog away… sooo here we are with Today’s session. I’m not going to write much tonight because I know mommy and daddy are patiently waiting to see these!!!!!

Thank you so Much S and J, for allowing me to be a part of such a special moment in your lives!

Once again, a very long sneak peek… but who can blame me… you’ll see…

Enjoy your images

xoxo-A

As I was headed out the door… I had forgotten I’d mentioned something to S earlier about using her “cravings” in the pics…. She reminded me thank gosh!!!

As cute and as “typical” as can be, she pulled pickles and ice cream out of  the fridge and we grabbed these adoreable pics…

and we’ll end with this.. One of my fav’s (well they’re all my fave’s….)

I just think J will really like this one…;)

*UPDATED* look who’s back! It’s baby L…. Cleopatra Photography {connections} Fort Myers family and baby photography

Hi Everyone! Goodmorning!!!!

 I hope you all have missed the babies on my blog! I know I have!!!!

Yesterday holding baby L, I just melted!!!! She was so light at just 12 lbs. and precious….

 my big guy aka puffin is seeming like he is bigger and bigger every day!!!! SOOOOO being around this little lumpkin;)… put my heart in such a warm place….. sigh….

so yesterday I headed out to see baby L and Mommy and Daddy at their place.

 It was POURING right before I got there! So we were soo happy that it cleared up and the sun even peaked its head out for us for a few amazing backlit shots!!!

Baby L…. you did amazing! hehehe, I’ll pass along the gratitude and say thanks to Mom and Dad too for being such amazing “models”, people and friends!

I love this part about my job! I get to make CONNECTIONS!!!!

When I was younger I dreamt about being an entertainer… a singer… or an actress….

Those dreams haven’t disappeared… just faded, because I love my job….

The camera is my voice… The images are my songs… and my website is the stage…

Thank you for everyone… who came out to today’s “Show” lol 😉

S and P… Thank you so much for asking me to document such an amazing time in your lives…

Inside the Actors Studio with K and J… Cleopatra Photography {You and Me} – Fort Myers Engagement Photographer

Hi Guys!!

Thank you so much for such a fun evening!

 I hope you had a great time… I definately did, and can’t wait to photograph your wedding in the spring…

On my b-day I might add, so it’s a double special day!!

 

Tonight I met K and J at Love Boat Ice cream! A cute litte place I never even knew existed until they suggested it

(and I have been living in Ft. Myers for 8 years!!! how pathetic is that??)

 So anyways, what a cute little joint with great treats! I can’t wait to bring my kids there to enjoy the home-made goodies!

 

We spent about 45 minutes taking in the sights there..lol and then headed down to Fort Myers Beach.

 These two are such a cute couple! great smiles and definately know how to turn it on for the camera… my favorite kind of shoots!!  I was a little shocked when the previously blonde K showed up with this new number… maybe not new to her but new to me, and I actually had to do a double take to make sure it was her! 

Full of smiles and laughs we got some great expressions and I have to say what a great set of photos we got guys!

I had a hard time choosing which ones I wanted to display on the blog seriously!! oh and that light at the end of our Ice cream session was killing it!!!!

 

I hope you enjoy the pics, and we will be in touch soon!!

 

A quick teaser…. for C and S – Cleopatra Photography {I Do} Fort Myers Beach PInk Shell Wedding, and Sunset Cruise Photography

Hi Everyone,

This couple contacted me not too long ago and told me they were coming from North Carolina!!  After a date change that moved the wedding up by almost 6 mths, we wrapped up all the planning, and it was set in stone they’d be married on Septmenber 25th.

I love my destination brides, and appreciate all of the trust they put in me when traveling so far for their special day…

 We started the day off at The Pink Shell hotel on Ft. Myers beach, and then made our way over to the ceremony site at Bowditch point. WOW was it hot…

a quick bit of advice for all the future destination and local brides alike… NEVER under estimate the power of Florida heat… even in September.

Luckily, the shade helped us a lot and we were able to get some amazing shots on the beach!

 After the ceremony, we headed down to the Fort Myers Princess dock and boarded the boat for their reception… it was a small party but a lively bunch, and not a single person wasn’t smiling… well that is except for little Miss R who was scared of the boat. (by the end of the night she was dancing away and you’dve never known she spent the boarding events crying!)

 After a few shots on the dock we took off and headed out for a sunset tour.

S and C , thank you so much for inviting me to photograph your special day, and trusting in my abilities even at 37 weeks pregnant…

 I have to admit I was a little worried myself, that I might end up with me being a distraction from your event on your day…. but THANK GOSH …. everything worked out.

This will probably be my last post on the blog for a while faithful stalkers… that is until my little guy makes his appearance..

which i’m sure he will make more than one so stay tuned..

In the meantime. Enjoy a peek at S and C’s day.

caio for now… Ashley

my fav from the boat...
