I can't believe this boy is not a baby anymore! I've been photographing Bubba since he was a newborn and since the last time I saw him he has definitely made the transition from baby to toddler. Since little man is at that age where he is always on the go we decided to photograph him doing what he does best, playing. As soon as I walked in to his backyard he started running around showing me all his toys and his favorite things to do. At the same time he was being such a little ham smiling for the camera. Not only was it great to celebrate another year in Bubba's life, but this family also had another big deal to celebrate. Mary, bubba's grandmother beat breast cancer this year!
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.
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.
My own little chunky girl is here! Myla was born on July 14th at 10lbs 8oz!!! More than her brother and sister combined. Right now I'm just enjoying my maternity leave with this little snuggle bunny. I'll be back to work October 15th just in time for Christmas card season. If you've been thinking about scheduling photos for the fall/winter season now is the time.
Take a look at this cute little chunky baby! Little miss Isabel was just eight days old when I met her and she is just as sweet as can be. When I first arrived she was very alert and interested in everything that was going on. Especially the bright lights and my big camera. But eventually she just couldn't keep her eyes open and drifted off to sleep. She is such a good and calm baby so far and I hope she keeps it up.
If you or someone you know is expecting a baby please head to my contact page and send me an email. I'd love to capture this special time with your little baby. Make sure to include your due date in the email.
Welcome home little Charlotte! This little sweety was born at just 27 weeks at 2lbs 5oz. She is home now and doing just great, sleeping and growing a lot. She was so easy to work with, she mostly slept through the whole thing and when she did wake up she was pretty easy to calm down. So happy mother's day to Charlotte's mommy and to all the other moms who have been kind enough to let me be a part of such a special time in their baby's life.
If you or someone you know is expecting a little bundle of joy soon go to my contact page and shoot me a message. There is nothing I love more than helping parents capture these fleeting moments before they're gone.
I can't believe this little guy is almost one! I first met bubba when he was a newborn and I've been lucky enough to photograph him every three months since then. He is such a fun big boy, he loves his dog princess, eating, riding on his ride-on toys, playing in his ball pit, and being with his parents and grandparents. Ever since I first met him he has been such a smiley baby, he's not afraid to tell you when he doesn't like something but in general he is a very happy baby. It's been so amazing to get to watch him grow over this past year. With all my milestone babies, its truly a joy to be a part of their lives.
If your little one is having a birthday soon or if you're invested in my newborn or milestone plans head to my Contact Page and send me an email. I'd love to hear from you.
I met this lovely couple Friday evening at the beautiful Lettuce Lake Park in Tampa near USF to commemorate their engagement. I know a lot of couples are unsure whether to have engagement photos done but there are a few reasons why I think you should go for it. If you plan to mail save the dates, they are a lot more fun if they come with a great new photo of you and your fiancé. They're also a great opportunity to interact with your photographer and get to know them before your wedding day. This is especially important if you are a bit shy in front of the camera which this couple was not at all. And besides, being engaged is a special time in your life and you'll be happy to look back on your engagement photos when you're old and gray together. Deanna and Jeremy were a really laid back, sweet couple. They were so fun to work with and I can't wait to shoot their wedding in November!
