The T Family

Tampa Children & Family Photographer

I had such a wonderful time photographing this adorable family and exploring Apollo Beach Preserve on Easter Sunday! We had a pretty mild winter in Florida but had unusually cold and windy beginning of spring. Add to the mix a couple of free spirit 1 and 3 year olds and we have a very interesting session! They both eventually warmed up to the fact that I won’t give up or let them leave without getting a bunch of cute photos of them. And a lot of cute photos we did get! Here are some of my favorites!

Sweet Baby Olivia

Tampa Baby Photographer

Newborns are my favorite age but a close second would have to be the 3-6 month range. This age is filled with so much curiosity and happiness! We are usually able to capture so many smiles and the babies always just stare down the camera which is great because we end up with lots of eye contact! Miss Olivia was just a sweet and adorable baby. I always feel so lucky to photograph such beautiful babies!

Baby Jack

Tampa Newborn Photographer

Meet 9 day old Jack. Oh my goodness, Jack was the sleepiest, most precious little guy ever! He is beyond adorable. Just one sweet little cuddle bug. I could have played and played with him but his parents wouldn’t have liked it if I was in their home cuddling their newborn baby all day long! I absolutely loved everything about this handsome little guy, from his cute button nose, those perfect rose bud lips and adorable bald head. Oh and I don’t remember ever laughing so much at a session before, his parents were so much fun to hang out with and I love their laid back personalities. Jack is so lucky to have such amazing fun parents! Enjoy some of my favorite photos from his session!

Baby Audrey

Tampa Newborn Photographer

Yay! Back to a newborn streak! I love love love newborn photography. They are probably the most difficult to photograph of all the age groups but there is something about them but they just make me over the moon happy! I had the opportunity to photograph 9 day old Baby Audrey and boy was she amazing!! She did nothing but sleep the entire session and let me play and play with her. Her big brother was a little hesitant about being photographed but after a lot of patience (LOTS!), he finally agreed to lie down next to her and then we got this shot. Sweetest sibling photo ever!

Life By Lens | June 2014

Tampa Children Photographer

Time for another edition of Life by Lens! This is a fun project that I am participating in with a wonderful group of photographers where our goal each month is to document our everyday lives.

My goal this month was to get some nice portraits of the boys and then when we went out and tried, I was quickly reminded why I avoid it at all costs! We ended up with a couple of keepers and a lot of crying. Why don’t they understand how much they’ll appreciate this one day! I promise next month will be back to our normal everyday photos, I’ll only traumatize them a few times a year.

We are so lucky to be so close to the beach! Say the word and we pack up a few things and off we go!

And a big happy birthday to the love of my life! I had to disturb his little slumber on the shore to get a photo of him with the kids. And now I don’t have to wonder where the boys got their dislike of getting their photos taken…ahem!

Little Abby

Tampa Baby and Family Photographer

One of the many thing that makes photographing babies so much fun and exciting is getting to see them again and see how much they’ve grown. That’s why I need to demand that all my clients need to book the baby planner package! I’ve photographed Miss Abby since she was 9 days old and so excited to see her again at 17 months old. She is already developing a fun personality and I had a great time photographing her and her parents. Babies this age are not the easiest but I love the challenge of getting them to smile and look at the camera. She completely wore me out in the end but I think it was completely worth it! Now her parents have these beautiful memories captured and cherished.

Megan & Dexter

Tampa Engagement Photographer

I’ve been trying out a lot of different things recently and love that photography can touch so many different people! Megan used to nanny for us and I was sad when her school schedule wouldn’t work for us anymore. She did such an amazing job watching the boys while I was at work. I never had to worry when she was there. We’ve kept in touch through Facebook and when her long time boyfriend, Dexter proposed to her, she immediately contacted me to ask if I could do their engagement session! I was a little surprised but I love trying new things and they had a wonderful idea of having it at Walt Disney World where they are pass members and go every opportunity they can get! We drove out to Orlando on a beautiful afternoon and made our way through the park, stopping to take photos at the stairs, Main St USA, Cinderella’s castle, neat architectural elements that makes Disney shine, the carousel, and Mad Hatter’s Tea Party ride. I had an amazing time capturing such a happy time in their lives at the happiest place on earth! Thank you Megan and Dexter for choosing me to capture your engagement session!

Ellie Turns One!

Tampa Baby Photographer

When mom contacted me for photos of her sweet daughter who was turning one, she was already prepared with some really adorable outfits for her. Miss Ellie rocked out each one and did so amazing in front of the camera. She is one adorable little one year old! I loved photographing her cake smash and taking them outside for some family photos. So many favorites from her session!

Oh how I love this family. I’ve known Cam since college, eons ago! She is now blessed with two adorable kids who I’ve been able to watch grow over the last few years. Here are a few of my favorite photos from their latest session with me.

Ava Turns One!

Tampa Baby Photographer

I don’t want to be too sappy but Miss Ava graduated from my baby plan with her one year session this past December and I am so sad I won’t be able to see her regularly anymore! I have enjoyed watching her grow into an active, happy, and beautiful little toddler! We started the session with a few holiday themed photos since she is a little Christmas Eve baby and have her smash her cake after. We also were able to go outside and get some family photos. Thank you so much to the Q Family for choosing me to capture Ava’s first year!
