It all began 11 years ago with my little Bianca. I have been photographing her since birth and she never ceases to amaze me. I absolutely love this kid.
For Sixteen years now, I have been photographing the Lombardo family. Every year I photograph their annual Christmas Family Portrait, and design Christmas cards for their long list of 900+ friends and family. No joke!
When they were young, it was always a challenge to capture the "perfect" family portrait with five little ones, and shooting film. Their names in order are...Dimitri, Natalia & Sabrina (twins), Adrianna and Bianca. Just remembering their names was a huge task for me, and it was total chaos as I tried get each child to look at the camera and smile, and say the correct name. I laugh as I think back upon this fun memory.
I have had the privilege of photographing all of their Family Portraits, Baptisms, Holy Communions, Senior Portraits, Christmas Parties, Birthday Parties and Graduations. I no longer consider them clients, they are my family.
Just like her mom, this kid is one of a kind. She is the youngest of five, and has a style all of her own. Bianca is 11 years old and is in the 5th grade. She has been singing and acting since the age of five. She has preformed in six musicals, and numerous children's productions in the Naples area. Brianca has performed three times at the State Fair. She just recently sang the national anthem at the Miami Marlin's Game; and if that's not enough...last year she was the recipient of the "Do the Right Thing" award in Collier County, and received a key to the City presented by the Mayor.
Currently she is a team member on the USA Freedom Kids, a national singing group, and I am happy to announce that they just released their first single on iTunes, click on the link to purchase it.
As you can see, not only is she beautiful, but she is extremely talented.
Bianca, it is always a pleasure photographing you! You are a natural!
