2013 was simply an amazing year for my photography thanks to all my amazing clients. There are hundreds of photographers to choose from in the Tampa Bay area and I am so thankful for each and every one of my clients who chose me to capture the most precious people in their lives. Trusting me to freeze a moment in time and hoping these photos will forever be cherished. It was such a tremendous year in growth for my photography and I am looking forward to all the amazing experiences I get to look forward to!
I cannot begin to explain how special this family is to me. We moved into a small little neighborhood at the beginning of this year and I pinch myself every time I drive home just to make sure it isn’t a dream! The B family was the first family we met and they could possibly be the sweetest family I have ever met. When they asked me to photograph their family, I could not be more thrilled. They are the epitome of a family.
Their little 5 year old is such a little cutie so I asked if she could pose for me for a project I was working on. She did so well in front of the camera. Doesn’t she have the most gorgeous eyes ever?
And my one of my favorite photos of all time
Where has this year gone? Thanksgiving came and went and now we are nearing the end of the year. This month’s blog circle is a little different because I didn’t take all of the photos! Sherri Kelly is a local photographer who I met a couple of years ago and I have been lucky to call her my friend. I love meeting up with her and chatting about our crazy photography obsession! This year, we decided to swap family photos for the holidays. I am so glad I did because it is so much better than trying to do it yourself! My boys obviously don’t love when I take photos of them so I was hoping that someone else would have better luck. Well, they didn’t completely cooperate, but Sherri worked her magic and these photos came out amazing! Enjoy the photos and don’t forget to click on the link at the end to follow along the circle!
I did get a chance to get some photos of the kids making and decorating gingerbread cookies. I had the bright idea of making everything from scratch and what a disaster that was! The kids thought it was a flour party and got it everywhere! I was cleaning up flour all day long! We had fun though and I’m glad the boys have this memory to look back at!

It’s no secret that I love newborns but Baby Kashvi, I adore you. You were just so perfect for your newborn session (minus all the messes you made!). I am in love with every single one of these images. I hope mom has big walls to fill up every space with these photos! Baby Kashvi was 3 weeks old when we did her newborn session with me but that didn’t stop her from sleeping through the session and letting me pose her without making a single fuss. Thank you so much J Family, it was an honor to be chosen to photograph your new family.

It just amazes me how fast the first year of a baby goes by but I just love seeing my babies change throughout their first year. I photographed Elle when she was just 7 days old, she was just a tiny peanut, again at 9 months and now she came back for her cake smash session. I thought her 9 month session was tough, boy was I wrong! She was so mobile and had her own agenda, just wandering and exploring around the studio with zero interest in taking photos. We managed to get a full gallery of her smiling and having a grand ole time running circles around us! And lucky for us, the rain stopped and the sun was shining just before the session and we were able to take some photos outside. Elle is also going to be a big sister in November! I can’t wait to photograph her baby sister when she arrives! Thank you G Family for choosing me to photograph Elle’s first year and your growing family!
I had a pretty special newborn session with baby Michael. We started out with some traditional posed photos of him, where he decided to soak me with a really powerful stream! Mom scheduled the session while both sides of grandparents were there visiting and we able to get photos with each grandparent. The last part of the session was a lifestyle session with his parents, something that is becoming one of my favorite types of photos. It was just them, not posed, doing things that they normally do, and the challenge for me is to find the best light to capture it all. I was so happy to deliver such a diverse gallery for them to have. Thank so much H Family for choosing me to photograph your new family!
The H. Family is growing! In July they will welcome a baby boy into their hectic life with a 1 year old. Miss Emily was quite the little model for me. She cooperated so well for being this age giving me eye contact and so many adorable smiles! I had such a great time photographing this family at Philippe Park in Safety Harbor and cannot wait to meet their new addition in a few months!
I have been so blessed to have met so many new babies last month! Newborn babies are best when photographed between 6-12 days old and nine day old Miss Eva was as sweet as can be. She followed my newborn session instructions so well and slept the entire session. Love when babies do that! Thank you S Family for allowing me to come to your house and photograph your new addition! I hope you enjoyed the photos as much as I loved capturing them for you! I could seriously do newborn photography every day! I just love it that much!!
And I love how grandma wanted some photos of her new granddaughter! So sweet!!
If you have been following my blog for the last few months, you know that I’m a part of a monthly blog circle project with a group of crazy talented photographers where we try to document things in a different way than we normally would. At the end of my blog post, you can view the next photographer’s post and so on and so on until you’ve come full circle!
We probably head out to the beach 2-3 times a month, especially during the spring and summer and my boys just have a blast playing in the sand. And this time around, we all had fun building a sand castle so that my 5 year old could … what else?…Destroy it… Of course right?
