4 years & 1 set of Twins later.



As I finished up this session the little’s mom reminded me how “it’s been 4 years since I’ve been photographing their little Katie”.

And somehow in the time I was over seas – Katie now has a set of 1 year old twin brothers!

We spent the morning photographing all three of these cuties until they could take the heat no more -

Hat’s off to Mom & Dad & Abeula – your hand’s are full but you manage it all with much grace & patience.

JB – Future Firefighter | Tampa, Temple Terrace, Brandon Senior Photographer



I had been looking forward to this session after speaking with JB’s mom.  I knew it would be a fun one.  JB enters the Firefighter Academy upon his graduation next May.   He has spent the past 4 years at Strawberry Crest High School in the Firefighter program.  And from what I was told he knew he wanted to be a firefighter since he was in tiny little fellow.  It amazes me the programs available to students now in HS – so different than “back – in – the – day”.  JB wanted his session to include all of his favorites – a little bit of each of his passions – so we had a vintage mustang  and a boat –  besides the fire trucks.    Here is just a tiny peek into his session – and a huge shout out to the members of the Temple Terrace Fire Station for opening your doors, moving your engines and allowing me to capture a little piece of your world. Stay Safe guys!

As a student of (amateur) photography for 60 years or so, I have come to appreciate really excellent work displayed in the portraits of our nephew JB. What a wonderful talent you have.

JB looks amazing in those pictures. I’m a friend of the Barrow’s family.

MacDill Family Session | Tampa Family & Child photographer



I received an email a few weeks back that made me quite  sad.  You see as photographers we become attached to our clients especially when we get to chronicle their lives over the past few years and watch their little ones grow up.  This family was headed out of State to continue their work in serving our country.  Mom & Dad both serve in the Air Force – and have sacrificed   family time in order to keep us safe.   They wanted one last session to remember their time spent in Tampa and it seemed only fitting to hold the session at MacDill Air Force Base  - where so much of their time was spent.  We began early morning to try and escape the heat a bit – it didn’t work – we were all hot and sweaty ten minutes into the session.  But that didn’t stop us from enjoying a morning filled with…..





Playing with sticks…..



smelling the air……..




looking for fish…….


and turtles…..



breaks for thinking….

Oh guys you will be missed – but I have a feeling we will be seeing each other soon!  Thank you for keeping us safe!

Lauren | Tampa – Lake Wales Maternity Photographer




Yesterday Lauren & her family & I braved the scorching 90 degree weather  and spent a few hours at Bok Gardens in Lake Wales Florida.  I was a bit embarrassed to say that after living in Florida for 23 years I had never been.  But from the minute I stepped on the property I knew that Lauren had chosen the most perfect spot to hold her Maternity Session.    It felt fresh shooting somewhere new and if it wasn’t so hot I probably would have kept Lauren there longer  - all of her carefully chosen outfit’s blended perfectly with each area of the Garden’s we picked to shoot in.  Lauren you & Jarrod will be 2 amazing parents – and your little one will be surrounded by loving families from both sides.  Thank you for allowing me to capture this special time in your life – and I can’t wait to meet little Raena James!!
