How we planned a surprise proposal for Jael

Our fake “website shoot”

Friday, March 17th 12:15 AM 

Jael says: “What if Lu wants to propose in your photo shoot?”

Abigail says: “Then what better time than while I have a camera in my hand.”

For as long as I can remember I have been imagining the day my cousin Jael would find the man of her dreams and he would ask her to marry him. And now there is Lu (Ludgeor). When the time was right he walked back into her life and it was as if a storm had blown her away. She was a different Jael. Gone were the days of third wheeling and hugging tacos. No more cheesy Jael cutting pictures of herself and inserting them on images of me and D making fun of ‘our love’.


Location, Location

One of the most contributing factors to a great image is the location in which it’s taken. I’m a firm believer that location isn’t everything (unless you are a landscape photographer) because often lighting and your subjects will play a much bigger role. Still, I’d be totally lying if I said you can shoot anywhere and get the same look as another. For instance, if you want the romantic look of Paris with an Eiffel Tower in the distance, you must be there in order to capture that. Just as flower fields are not the same as an empty field… there is beauty in each one of those places for particular reasons. Recreating other images found on Pinterest in your vicinity is often not possible because they are all unique in their own way.

Louisiana Travel Sessions

I am heading back to you Louisiana once again this year! Exciting days to come as I witness the arrival of baby Lorelei to my dear friends the Kennedy crew. This time around though I plan to extend my visit and I am looking for local families who would want to take me to a place they LOVE to photograph their family. In the past years traveling back and forth to Louisiana has always been a breath of inspiration and something I always look forward to. My hometown clients here in South Florida often wonder where it is that I am located since I often post sessions on the blog that were shot in Louisiana and it’s simply because it will forever remain a second home.

The comeback year


My how things changed in these short 12 months. This time last year I was still on maternity leave enjoying every minute of the day spent at home with my boys. I kept telling myself I would start working again when the boys turned six months and something about those cute chunky faces of theirs kept me from wanting to leave them behind even if just for a couple of hours for a session. That was until there was much talk about whether or not I would document Jaylin & Lester’s engagement session … I knew I had to stop putting it off. That session lit enough of a fire in me that soon enough I started making plans to start working again.

Growing with AV · The Kennedys

off to Louisiana!

I’m probably already mid-air by the time this post goes live… on the way to capture Kristin’s next milestone in her motherhood journey. It’s been quite the exciting almost eight years of working together and every single time I get that message, “we’re having a baby” or better said, “Abby you ready to come back to Louisiana?” I immediately start dreaming up all the pictures I know we are going to create. If you haven’t already landed on that page, I dedicated a section to just them and what it’s like having a single photographer be the person that follows along in your family’s journey. It’s now called Growing with AV but you can definitely make reference to it as Kristin’s Motherhood Journey.
