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.
It was so great to see this family again! I've been shooting their little one since she was a newborn and I've loved seeing her grow. She's not a baby anymore, she's a toddler now. We met on a very overcast but nice day at Cypress Point Park in Tampa. Ive never been to Cypress Point before but I really loved shooting there! I was worried we would be rained out but luckily the weather held until we were done and we were able to have a nice time walking around and shooting photos. I haven't been back from maternity leave for long so it was so great to be able to ease back in with clients that I know.

On a warm October day in Tampa FL Allison and Thomas became husband and wife and I was there to share it with them. A few months ago when I was very pregnant I photographed Allie and Tom for the first time at the USF botanical gardens and on Sunday the 5th they were my first wedding since coming back from maternity leave. It felt nice to get back into the swing of things especially with such a fun couple. Beneath a beautiful sunset on the water and surrounded by family and friends Allie and Tom said their vows. I hope and believe they will have a long and happy life together, wherever it may take them.
I can't believe that my little girl is three months old already! She is such a happy baby and loves her big brother and sister so much. They've been great with her too! One of the most amazing parts of motherhood for me is watching my children develop their own relationships with each other and seeing how much they love each other. I've really enjoyed my maternity leave and having time to photograph my own little ones but I'm also so excited to get back to work. So, to celebrate getting back into the swing of things I'm offering mini sessions just in time for the holidays! I'm offering 45 minute sessions with 10-15 high resolution files for just $250. These sessions can be at any location. Book your session today because this offer only lasts until December 17th. If you want to use your mini session photos for christmas cards though I would recommend scheduling your session in November. Hope to see all of you soon. Now I'm going to show off my cute kids.
