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…..

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!!

Jackson Walker | Palm Beach Newborn Photographer.



Go ahead say it aloud – Jackson Walker – I just love that name – It sounds classic & strong.  Just like this little guy was.   Little Jackson is blessed beyond measure.  Because he has a Mama that has been waiting a long time to hold this little bundle in her arms.  Watching her with little Jackson I was amazed – she was a natural – like she had given birth dozens of times.  And I won’t leave Dad out – he was a natural as well – comfortable and filled with love for this new addition.   Thank you again Courtney & Bryan for allowing me to share this special time in your life.  I can’t wait to see little Jackson again!DY9C0952-14bwebDY9C0969-15webDY9C1048-24webDY9C1078-27webDY9C1085ewebDY9C1178-37webDY9C1183-39webDY9C1205ebwebDY9C1219-44web

The Boys | Tampa “Tween” Photographer



So often I find that the “tween’s” in life are a tad bit neglected in photos – Sure babies & High School-ers  have their fair share in front of the camera – but I think the “tween’s” { not a kid anymore – not quite a teenager} don’t get as much screen time.   This afternoon I spent a wonderful bit of time with two “tween’s”.  They are huge NY Yankees fans, and both of them said their favorite subject in school was Math!  They were quite happy to have me follow them all around the outdoor mall today – so Anthony & Trevor thanks so much for putting up with my bad jokes today & the blaring sun.
