From birth to the Golden Years, Gerlinde creates a lifetime of memories.

If you’re like most of us, it’s so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life. We procrastinate…”Wait till I lose a few pounds,” “After I pay off the holiday bills,” “When the kids go back to school,” “Not this month, it’s too hectic.”

Don’t let time slip by. Gather the family (and pets, too) and have that portrait taken. Years from now, when recollections dim, you’ll be happy you made time for a family portrait. 

Your family will enjoy the privacy of our studio. Whether they are wearing blue jeans and t-shirts, or tuxedos and evening gowns, Gerlinde, Michael, or Joseph will “capture” your family at their best.

There is no sitting fee, just exquisite portraiture done the “Gerlinde Way.”

“Today's keepsakes are tomorrow's treasures”

Schools can choose to have traditional school portraits taken, as well as any of the following: class group photos, cap & gown graduation, camp groups, prom portraits, individual and group dance portraits, personality portraits and more. In addition to capturing the portraits, our staff will work with each school’s yearbook company to provide them with all the images that they may need. Our School Portrait Division was voted the “Best Portrait Photographers” by parents and South Florida Parenting Magazine since 1997, resulting in the induction into the Hall of Fame for Best Portrait Photographer in South Florida.

Capturing the perfect dance pose is an art and our staff of photographers has specialized in this for over 30 years. In most cases, our staff visits dance studios in the community leading up to recitals or performances, fully equipped to capture the perfect individual and/or group photo.

Senior Portrait Session Details

Seniors

Graduation from high school is a memorable experience and at Gerlinde Photography, we pride ourselves in capturing that very special moment with a timeless portrait.

We work with several schools in the south Florida community, teaming up with their yearbook provider, to take all of the senior headshots. In addition to just a senior yearbook photo, we offer a portrait session just for seniors to memorialize this special time in their life.

These portraits show off seniors in formal, fun and casual styles, while also serving as an expression of their personality to share with their friends and family.

If it is an annual tradition, a special Holiday get together, or too many years between family portraits, gather the entire family together to capture moments in time with a family portrait sitting.

If a specific date of completion is desired, please make sure the studio knows so that they can accommodate. For example, if holiday cards are wanted, please make sure that there is ample time to have the portrait created and the card ordered. When making your appointment, please indicate the number and type of pets that will be photographed.
