Hi!  Thanks for visiting my blog, where I post about recent photography shoots, my travels, and things I feel might be interesting to you!  Comments are appreciated!  Happy reading!


You all know how much I love when clients come back for portrait sessions over the years, allowing me to document them as they grow. I was thrilled when Jenifer contacted me about photographing an extended family session, because her sister in law, Jessica, had arranged a similar session a few years ago! It was […]

I absolutely love that the “kids” from the Dubee Family got together and hired me to photograph them along with their parents. So much of my business is photographing young families, but I KNOW there are even more families who haven’t gotten together for professional portraits in years! Their Olan Mills framed portraits from when […]

In this ever increasing visual world, we have a need for a great headshot portrait now more than ever. For use on social media, LinkedIn, your employer’s website or your very own website, a terrific portrait that shows your personality and professionalism combined should be a must on your to do list. I recently offered […]

Do you feel like time is flying by at rapid speed as well? It’s been 6 months since I photographed the Clark Family and yet it feels like just yesterday I was capturing these cuties’ smiles. This time we met across the river on the University of Tampa campus. Elsie is almost 1 year old […]

Nothing makes me happier than clients who ask me to photograph the most special moments in their lives. Five years ago, I photographed Robert and Alison’s wedding in San Antonio, Texas. (SO MUCH FUN!) Since then, they’ve moved from New Orleans to Denver, and welcomed sweet little Calla into their family! While visiting Robert’s parents […]

Year after year, I am honored that the Cooper Family asks me to document their growing family, from their engagement, wedding, first newborn, and now their baby boy (and all the sweet moments in between)! Baby Harrison snoozed through most of our time together, but even when he was awake, he was an absolute angel. […]

Oh this family just makes me smile! I love photographing them year after year, watching Lily and Benjamin grow and become even smarter and funnier. During my road trip from Florida to Michigan, I stopped in Ohio for a few days and photographed the awesome Liner Family! Stasia suggested a local shopping area near their […]

I recently made a little road trip from Saint Petersburg, Florida up to Suttons Bay, Michigan, and stopped in a few places along the way for portrait sessions. My first stop was the gorgeous neighborhood of Pinewood Forrest an hour or so outside of Atlanta, Georgia to photograph this absolutely lovely family! It was a […]

I just love the Fort Myers and Sanibel area; it’s so gorgeous, with a seemingly endless number of locations for family photography sessions. I loved photographing Mary and Charlie on a little island right off their beautiful neighborhood of Gulf Harbour Yacht and Country Club. Originally from Virginia, this sweet Southern couple are clearly enjoying […]

I love photographing clients on their own to create or update their headshots, and living in Saint Petersburg allows me to do this now year round, with the gorgeous mild winters! Brooke was a joy to work with; I loved her bold color choice which really helped her stand out. We shared lots of laughs […]
