He’s the 5th!

April 16th, 2014

It seems like there is a baby boom!  I’ve been doing lots of new born photo shoots lately.  I love how much joy a new life brings.  Getting to share with these families in their special moments is a real honor for me.  This family, in particular, holds a big piece of my heart.  They have been our family here in Tampa.  We started a church together, nine years ago.  We know each others’ secrets :)  ha ha!  Seriously, we do!  Anyway, it was a real treat for me to get to photograph Hal and Chrissy’s first baby, Hal the 5th!  This little boy has a great lineage and will have quite a blessing on his life.  Welcome to the world, little one.

A New Baby Girl

March 6th, 2014

Is there much in this world that is better than a newborn baby? I mean, their tiny fingers and toes…their sweet, new smell…they sleepy smiles… They are such miracles. Well, this little baby girl made my heart so happy. Baby Everly was 8 days old when I met her for our photo shoot and this peanut had clearly been preparing! Our first picture started with a smile. “Why thank you for cooperating, Everly.”

Her little brother sure was proud, as he kept asking to hold her. He is going to be a big helper for mom and dad. And speaking of mom, can you believe this mama just gave birth 8 days prior? She looked stunning, had energy, and a smile on her face.  She is one special lady, that won my family’s heart over.  Well, that’s because she was my son’s fabulous first grade teacher last year.  Come meet baby Everly and her very beautiful family.

Tampa Senior Session

February 25th, 2014

I was so excited when I got the call to do this Tampa senior’s session.  I have known Greg and his family for many years and am beginning to feel pretty old since he is graduating high school!  Everybody tells you, “time flies” and you think, “ok, ok….” but then you blink and you realize, “time does fly and those people were right.”

Anyway, I’m sure that’s how Greg’s mom feels too.  I think she smiled the entire shoot as she watched her handsome baby boy.  Our afternoon at Curtis Hixon Park was adventurous as we had to contend with the set-up of a festival and dodging rain drops.  But even with these obstacles, this session rocked.  Greg was an incredibly good sport and willing to do everything I suggested.  His hard work resulted in fabulous pictures.  Congratulations, Greg!

Florida, Georgia, and England

February 20th, 2014

Florida, Georgia, and England.  That’s where these people came from to have one large family portrait.  While the Floridians had it easy, I’m thinking the flight over the Atlantic was a little more complicated.  And since they all were together, why not capture these sweet memories?  That’s what they did!   This mom and her two daughters and their families were just beautiful.

Smiling With Teeth

January 14th, 2014

This incredible family was mine for the evening!  Everyone of them looked sharp and they were happy as could be until….we got shooting.  The littlest guy had all the fingers of his right hand in his mouth.  Ouch!  He had some new teeth trying to make their way in and he was not a fan of what was going on – inside or outside of his mouth.  However, we managed to get a few happy pictures before he lost his patience with me.
