I’ve got some more beach goodness to share from your favorite beach photographer!  The C Family came to vacation here on our beautiful beaches all the way from Canada!  The wind was pretty heavy, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying ourselves!  Little Abbie discovered how much she loves playing in the water.  In fact, mommy told me that while she was at the beach earlier in the week, she basically just stayed in the sand.  Well, that was the complete opposite for our session!  It was low tide, so the water was very shallow and Abbie just loved splashing in it!  And I loved snapping her cute little overjoyed face 🙂

Not only did we get some amazing family images, we also had to focus on mommy’s belly!  She’s due with a little boy very soon and Miss Abby will be a big sister.  I think she’ll love her new role.  Enjoy these images of your first beach vacation, C Family!

When Anderson’s mommy contacted me to do a child photo session for her 7 month old son, I got so excited!  I’m a Tampa child photographer, but I haven’t had a 6-7 month old child in a long while.  It’s definitely my favorite “baby” age to photograph.  At this age, their little personalities really start to bloom!  I think it’s the best of both worlds really.  They are little enough to stay put, but old enough to look at you and smile.  And boy, did Anderson smile!  I mean, he was honestly one of the easiest babies I’ve ever photographed.  He has such a calm, go-with-the-flow demeanor.

We ended our session with a few family shots with little Anderson.  If it weren’t for the sun going down, I could have easily kept photographing him and his cute smile.  He didn’t get cranky one bit!  Enjoy these pictures because as well as know, babies don’t keep.  I hope to see you all again soon!

Tampa Beach Photographer

I have been excited for this family session at the beach ever since it was booked a couple of months ago!  This beautiful came to me all the way from Kansas to have their first experience at the beach captured.  For these little girls, it was their first experience at the beach!  Sometimes this is so hard for me to believe, being that Florida beaches have been my second home for my entire life.  And of course, I’m a beach photographer so I’m here all the time! When we arrived and stepped out of the car, we were greeted by a blast of wind!  Honestly, it was the windiest beach day I’ve ever encountered!  But being from Kansas, they’re used to a little wind, right?! (Obligatory Wizard of Oz comment!)

Well I was determined to make the wind work in our favor and that we did!  We sang Moana songs and the girls had fun dipping their toes (ok, their whole bodies!) in the ocean and loved having the waves wash over them.  But the end of our session, the girls were drenched from head to toe!  That didn’t stop us from getting one last sunset image though and it was a gorgeous one!  T Family, I know it was super windy, but I hope you thoroughly enjoyed your first experience at the beach!

Oh how I adore lifestyle newborn sessions. My sweet clients welcome me into their home and into their intimate moments with their new baby.  I love how raw and organic these fleeting moments are. Between the feedings, the burpings and the diaper changes, this special time can definitely be a whirlwind!  It’s important to document these moments to remember those tiny hands, toes, and baby coos.  Miss Dakota is just a week old and mommy and daddy are thrilled that she’s finally here!  You may remember Stefani’s epic maternity outfit from her photo session here. So many people have asked me where she bought it!  The answer?  Amazon of course!!

Dakota decided that she didn’t want to miss out on the action, so she decided to stay awake most of the time I was there.  Fine by me!  I was able to capture her sweet blue eyes and silly newborn expressions.  Welcome to the world, Dakota!  You are already surrounded by so much love <3

Epic!  That is the only word I can use to describe this couples photo session.  Nikki and Drew met me at the Ringling Mansion in Sarasota to shoot a couples session that she will feature on her blog Dive Into Greatness, which is focused on building the greatness within YOU.  This was my first time visiting the Ringling Mansion, but it definitely won’t be my last.  What a beautiful property!  And the gardens were just insanely gorgeous.  The three of us spent a few hours there walking around, finding new locations at every turn.  Each corner of the property is just so unique and begged to be photographed!  We ended our lovey dovey session in Nikki’s car and I love how the ideas that we bounced off each other came to life.  I can’t wait to see how you use these images, Nikki!  And if you all haven’t already, go and check out her website!

It’s always humbling (but also nerve racking!) when a fellow photographer contacts me to do a session for them. When another artists recognizes and values my work, it just feels like the ultimate compliment!  Marla and her beautiful daughters came all the way from Detroit to vacation at the beautiful Redington Beach.  While here, she wanted a chance to be on the other side of the lens with her daughters.  Although it can be weird for us photographers to let go of controlling the session, Marla did it perfectly!  The goal of this mommy and me session was to capture the relationship that she has with each of her daughters and I think we nailed it!  And it was like the photographer gods were on our side tonight because what started as a dreary sky turned into an amazing, dramatic sunset.  We lucked out big time!  Marla, it was pleasure photographing you and your girls.  I hope we captured some memories that you will cherish forever.  If I’m ever in the Detroit area, I know who to call!
