my littlest baby is nine months old already! Where is the time going? It seems like just yesterday that I was taking nine month photos of her big brother and sister. I always try to use Myla's shoots to try out things that I've been wanting to do but haven't had a client to try it on yet. So for this shoot I decided to try out a milk bath and I absolutely LOVE IT! There's just something so dreamy about the flowers and the milky water. Just perfect. It took a bit of set-up and the behind the scenes was a bit of a mess but I would definitely do it again.
AJ is turning one! I had such a great time photographing this sweet little man. Not only do I love to set up a fun theme, like AJ's cute fishing themed set, but he is just such a cutie. As soon as his mom walked up to to introduce herself AJ reached his arms out to me so that he could meet me too. Although the Florida heat and humidity was in classic form for our session I had a great time getting to know this cute little guy and his parents. First birthdays are so important and special, I love that I get to be a part of such great milestones. Happy First Birthday AJ!
Its rare to see a couple who seem to go together as well as Monique and Terrence do. From the moment I arrived to photograph Monique and her girls getting ready until the end of the night there was not one tense moment. And it wasn't just the two of them, everyone around them seemed so genuinely happy for them and ready to celebrate their love. After a sweet outdoor ceremony where Monique and Terrence recited their own vows we headed inside the Rusty Pelican for a fun reception with lots of dancing and laughter. I hope that the bride and groom look back on this day as just the first of many happy days as husband and wife and are always as comfortable together and as surrounded by love and support as they were on this day. Congratulations you too!
I love every sweet little baby I get to photograph but there is something very special about photographing a friend's baby. In this case, its the baby of two close friends that I have known for fourteen years! Little Declan decided to surprise his parents three weeks early and weighed in at 5lbs 12oz. He is just the sweetest most prefect sleepy baby who wants to do nothing but eat and be held. Congratulations to Declan's mommy and daddy welcome to the club.
I can't believe my baby is already six months old! This little girl is a joy to have in our lives and to photograph. I whipped up this adorable onesie and bonnet specially for little myla's session. Something many of you may not know is that I knit most of the outfits I use in my photography. Since I make them myself I can take requests. if your living room is a certain color scheme and you would like your baby's photos to match or you really love teddy bears and want your little one to wear a sweet little bear hat just let me know! I can usually do it.
Wow! Charlotte is one year old! A few months ago I photographed this sweet little baby when she came home from the NICU. It was so amazing to see her again and see just how much she has grown and changed. One thing that has stayed the same though is her sweet disposition and her big beautiful eyes.
If you are interested in having family photos taken, are pregnant, or have a baby send me an email. I would love to hear from you and plan the photography session of your dreams.
On an unusually cold Saturday morning in January Rachel and Ed said "I do" happily surrounded by friends and family. They chose to see each other before the wedding and it was such a beautiful moment that I was so happy to be present to capture. Although it is becoming much more common for brides and grooms to have a "first look" before their ceremony some still feel that it will ruin the moment of seeing the bride come down the aisle. Instead of thinking of it that way I would have couples think of it as a chance to have that moment privately (aside from your photographer). Rachel and Ed were able to hug and talk and after I snapped a few photos, have a moment to themselves. It was truly beautiful. During the ceremony, the bride had a big surprise for everyone. She rode to the ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage! The looks on the faces of her guests were amazing. I hope that this great couple is always as in love as they were on their special day!
Well, the holiday season is coming to an end and its been a wild one at my house. But then, every day with a five month old and two four month olds is a wild one. I hope yours was great and I hope you were able to capture photos of lots of happy smiling faces. I know many of you were celebrating your first holiday as a married couple or your baby's first holiday. while you're recovering from the craziness of the holidays and hunkering down from the cold I know that scheduling a photography session is the last thing on your mind. But, before you know it spring will be here and with it, flowers. In my opinion, there is almost nothing more beautiful than a photo session in a field of wild flowers. Don't miss out on scheduling a spring session, the wildflowers won't last long. And now, I'm going to shamelessly show off my kids.
This past Sunday I met with this beautiful family near their home in New Port Richey FL. It has been some time since they've had family photos so it was really important to capture their children and who they are right now. As a mom I know that the years go by so fast, children absolutely fly through different ages and stages and they are on to the next one before we get a chance to really document them. So every time I have a child in front of my lens I always do my best to make sure they are comfortable enough with me to let some of their personality shine through. I really enjoyed working with the Garcias, they're a very sweet family and I hope they love their photos as much as I loved shooting them.

Congratulations Jeremy and Deanna! I first met Deanna and Jeremy when we shot their engagement photos at Lettuce Lake Park. I could tell right away that this was a couple who was absolutely secure in their love for each other and their decision to join their lives together forever. Although Jeremy claims to not be a smiler, I saw plenty of smiles when he goofed around with his bride. Every part of this wedding contained a personal touch, from the ring box and cake stand made by a family friend to the center pieces put together by the bride and a few guests. I think Deanna and Jeremy have a long and happy future together. During the anniversary dance I don't think I've ever seen so many couples who have been married for 30+ years, with those sources of advice I don't think they could have a better chance.
