Photography by Rosie Hernandez

I'm excited to announce that I have a new site/blog for all my photographic ventures.
Still being filled up with galleries (I have so much to show you), but the basic info is ready to go.
You can find it here:

My flash websites have been working just fine for me but as technology develops in another direction I have to do it as well.
I read not along ago from one of my mentors that if he has to do it all over again he will go for a blog :)
Blogger has been one of my BFF for years but, Wordpress has the right elements I've been looking for to, once again, offer the most optimal platform to be reached by anyone w/a smart device, from a laptop to an iPad and everything in between.
Also, I want to be able to organize myself, my appointments, galleries, projects, you name it... from just one place.
Do I make sense? Hope so...

These are just a few of the neat features from my new site/blog:
Up-to-date calendar with my availability, visible from any page.
Subscription by email.
Contact form - I love this one! Now, booking your session or event won't be an endless back and forth of emails. Just send me all the basic info from one form. Sweet!
Portrait sessions - as per clients' request I'm starting to offer combo packages.

Many more new treats to come...

South Florida photographer - Maternity session

I love when my clients come to me with their own picture ideas but it gets complicated when they want me to imitate images thru my lens...  so, and only because she is expecting (gotta make her 'extra' happy) I decided to go for it, adding my own personal touch to the capture :)
the results? well... I ended up with a good image's structure but PS was a must in this case.
Check out the "before and after":

"Oh no, here she is again with that camera!"

How many time did you hear that coming out of your children's mouth?
Getting great shots of your kids is no a matter of being lucky. There are many factors in play when capturing your little ones.
Knowing your camera, the features and limitations can be the difference between a "I missed it" and a "to treasure forever" moment.
As per many local moms' request, I started offering 3 hours One on One workshops, where my goal is to teach you to use your own equipment while throwing some very valuable tricks and treats to get the most out of your digital device.
But, don't worry! you won't be alone once I leave...
This personalized workshop includes 7 days of e-mailing coaching and snapshots critique. 

Do you have questions? I have answers!

- What camera should I have?

- Where does the workshop take place?
In the comfort of your home.

- What exactly am I going to learn?
The whats, whys, whens of using the different features of your own device along with neat DIY and very affordable treats.
Basic posing techniques, lighting tricks.

- Can we take pictures of my own kids during the workshop?
Oh yes, we will! I'd like to spend 1/2 of the time with you alone and then we will apply all those things you are learning to a real-life indoors/outdoors photoshoot.
If there is not kids available at that time, you will practice with me :)

- I'd like to start a photographic business? Is this workshop the right start?
Running a photographic venture takes much more than 3 hours-workshop
If you are looking for to improve your family pictures, this is the right workshop for you.

- What's your availability?
1st appointment starts @ 8:30am and last one starts @ 12:30pm.
I'll be as flexible as I can be but please have in consideration my time is as valuable as yours. Thanks!
I'm serving Broward county only at this moment.
- Can you teach two moms at the same time?
I wish but due to the limited time and because everybody has a different camera I decided to go with One on One workshops only.

- What are the fees?
To reserve your spot I'd need $50.00 deposit.
I charge $250.00 for a 3 hours workshop and the $50.00 will go towards total fees.

- How can I schedule my workshop?
Visit our “contact form”  checking OTHER under sessions and don't forget to add what type of camera (brand, model) you have on the comments box.
I will go back to you within 24 hours.
- Do you have any Photoshop workshop available?
Editing is a true passion of mine and passing on my knowledge is a privilege.
Feel free to contact me so we can go over details: 305.898.7891

South Florida photographer - from my inbox... to yours.

I'm having a lot of inquiries from my fellow photogs about different subjects.
One of the most common ones is about my templates a.k.a. collages a.k.a. composites, etc.
The answer is (because it's not really a secret):
I create my own :) just piling up layers... I don't go smaller than 11x14 (95% of the time).
I start w/ a transparent background, lay out the pics and then cover w/color borders...
I've been working with Smugmug (the platform that handles my private galleries and professional printing, yes! you can tell I love this co.) and I like their 11x14... not too big, not too small.
If I'm working on a wedding book I try to keep some steady measurements/colors along the process but most of the time the images dictate their display.
There are very good "ready to go" templates out there available for purchasing BUT... I like to have control of my collages, that's the major reason I do it this way.

Then, my fav of this week was the following one:
Professional question - I hope you don't mind me asking some professional advise :-) But you have been in business longer than me so I thought you might be a good resource for this issue.
I have a client that has scanned in prints from their order they received today here on Facebook. Do you confront a client about copyrights here on FB? I don't want to anger the client but also don't want my images stolen? Thanks,

My answer:
You mean... she purchased prints from you and then scanned and uploaded to FB? If that's the case, I won't worry about her friends/family re-printing from FB...
Uploads to Facebook are automatically resized to about 600 x 400 pixels :)
Am I understanding correctly? Hope so.

Looking for local, affordable tutus?
