A Tampa Proposal

June 23rd, 2015

She said, “YES!!”  But he got her good!  Chris surprised Heather.  Like so good that he took her breath away…..for a long time. She was shocked and emotional and excited.  Chris called my husband to ask him to play and sing Ed Sheeran’s song, “Thinking Out Loud” and asked if I’d capture the whole event.  We were so thrilled and honored to get to help.  Once Chris and Heather were finished eating dinner at the beach, Chris suggested they head down and watch the sun set.  Once they were sitting down, my husband and I snuck up behind them.  I began to photograph and my husband quietly began to play.  It took Heather a while to turn around, but almost instantly she knew something was different.  This would be the best night of her life…so far.   It was beautiful!!! Just see for yourself.

South Tampa Family Session

June 23rd, 2015

It was so, so good to be with this sweet family again as they celebrated Baby D’s first birthday.  My how these girls are growing!!  And aren’t they just stunning?  Our first attempt at this session did not go the way any of us planned.  It was a beautiful evening on Harbor Island when out of nowhere it started raining buckets on us.  Needless to say, everyone was drenched and in no shape to take pictures.  So, we rescheduled for a week later and it was…..much better!  See for yourself.

Westchase Senior Session

May 7th, 2015

Y’all, this girl should be a model.  Whether she knew it or not, she knew how to pose to make my camera love her.  Our Westchase session was full of beauty and the sun certainly cooperated too.  We enjoyed an evening of her piano music and celebrating her upcoming graduation.  Mary, I wish you a very big “congratulations!!”

Oklahoma City Kinda Love

November 25th, 2014

Lindsay called me months ago to announce she and Sean had just gotten engaged.  She wanted to book her engagement session on the beach in Florida.  She and Sean wanted to have beautiful photos on Clearwater Beach.  The whole day had been very overcast and honestly, I was worried that this couple had come all the way from Oklahoma for their Florida sunset, only to be duped with clouds.  But as I pulled up to the beach, the clouds began to part and before you knew it, we had some bright sunshine which paved the way for one of the most gorgeous sunsets I have ever seen.  It was a fabulous evening with these two love birds.  Congratulations, Lindsay and Sean!

Beautiful Senior Session at University of Tampa

August 31st, 2014

What a fabulous session I had with this beautiful senior at the University of Tampa.  Yes, it’s Florida and it’s August, so it was insanely hot and humid, but Courtney pulled this shoot off like a professional model.  She rolled with all of my ideas and as you will see, the camera adored her.  This sweet girl, is finishing her last year of high school and then heading off to college on a tennis scholarship.  Way to go, Courtney!  I loved meeting you and hope you love your photos.
