Bridal bowling

Avant-Garde Images participated in the WPPN Bridal Bowl fundraiser on Saturday. The Bridal Bowl raised money for the Shelter for Abused Women.
I won a prize for the biggest bow!
I forget the name of the Inn on Fifth/Naples Transportation team. But the theme was Shotgun Wedding! SOOOOO funny!
And of course the bride and her bridesmaids! Most of these women are the catering managers at all the high-end resorts in town. You want a sophisticated wedding; right?
Options thrift store donated the bridal gown that Dale is wearing. We women LOVE to dress up!
Peggy and Helen! Avant-Garde Images women at work!

Senior Katie

I love photographing senior high students!
Katie and I had so much fun! We played music (of course a lot Fake Problems but I let her play her own music too). Katie brought tons of clothes and props and we took lots of pictures!

Maternity Portrait

Maternity portraits are so special! Rebecca and Brandon have been together since they were in high school and are now expanding their family. Expanding... get it? See Rebecca's belly?
Okay, bad joke!I love the way Rebecca and Brandon interact with each other. I love putting together storyboards of portraits to show the love and connection between family members. These two are so adorable!

Senior Portrait

Sammie came in to the studio for her senior portrait session. We had so much fun! It's always a great idea to bring a friend. You may recognize Justine!
She's my famous underwater model. Her hair's a bit different now!
The necklaces were Sammie's idea. How cute!
The fan is a necessity!
Glamour girl!


Just a sneak peak from a couple of really cute sisters!

A Few Recent Weddings

High School Sweethearts Wes and Katie
had a sweet and touching beach wedding.
Katie is just stunning!
The two of them were really fun!
Wes and Katie were just so happy! Kelly Werder with No Worries Weddings
made sure everything went smoothly. It's always a joy to work with Kelly!

Danielle and Brian lucked out! They got married on the beach and it was beautiful. Right after the ceremony, however, it rained! We came prepared with props! Danielle and Brian look adorable with our rainbow umbrella.
Helen took this awesome picture!
Inside the Inn on Fifth. Oh my goodness! The Inn on Fifth is so GORGEOUS!

Brady Bunch at the Naples Beach Hotel!
Tracy and Harry blended their two families together at an awesome ceremony on the beach. The weather was incredible, the guests were lots of fun, the Naples Beach Hotel had outstanding service, and the family looked terrific!

Besides the big family portrait, Tracey took advantage of our Canvas Cluster sale, which is still going on! Each canvas is stretched around a frame for a clean look. The clusters are meant to hang one inch apart. This is Cluster 4, which is great for a moderate size wall.
Total wall space is 34x32 inches.
Cluster 6 is for a larger wall. Total wall space is 45x24 inches.

Wall portraits are such a fabulous way to decorate your home. I LOVE the portrait of my son and me. I hug it when I walk by! There is no art piece that can compete with fabulous portraits of your family!
