I met Meghann, David, and Daxton when he was still in the NICU and I can’t believe he’s 1 already!!! He’s happiest when he can be on the go, crawling and almost walking on his own. Meghann did his birthday theme with the Very Hungry Caterpillar and the cutest little outfit. All my 1 year olds lately are not down with cake, but even with a few tears he is so cute!! We had Blueberry Blessings awesome pumpkin patch all to ourselves!! A huge thank you to them for letting us use their awesome property:-)
This adorable little lady just turned 1! She is on the move and so happy and smiley!!! I love the navy and pink outfits that Julie chose for their family photos. Harper powered through her cake smash but didn’t totally love the cake and frosting but she is so cute!!
I love photographing kids and families because it goes by WAY too fast! A photo is literally the only way to get them to stop growing for a second:-) Little miss Lorelei is already 6 months old and so adorable. Her older brother, Ezra, clearly adores her! This little dress was her mom’s dress that she wore in a similar portrait at this age. I love the yellow, navy and gray outfits Rachel choose for the photos of them all together!
Isn’t Mireia the cutest little unicorn you ever did see? I love her name, it means Miracle, which is the perfect name for her! We did her newborn session when she was 9 days old which is my favorite because they are so little and squishy. I always have mom and dad be in some even though it’s so hard being in that new parent sleepless fog but it goes by so fast! Kelly and Pedro she is gorgeous and I am so happy to see you all as a party of 3:-)
Olivia just turned 1! She is so full of expression and personality, not to mention that beautiful curly hair! You might be able to tell she's also a daddy's girl:-) These are just a few of my favorites moments with Vanessa, Eric and Olivia! When they came over to the studio for the unveiling session there were happy tears as I played the slideshow of all the edited images. I can't even put into words how rewarding it feels to create these special moments that will be loved and cherished for a lifetime!
I have had the honor of photographing Maureen & Ralph's, engagement session, wedding and now as a family of 3! Their little beauty Raven just turned 1 and we did this super casual lifestyle session at our studio. Maureen has been riding horses pretty much her whole life and even had some equestrian details in their wedding so my little wooden rocking horse was perfect! Both of Raven's outfits were handmade. The bubble outfit from Laine Avery and the outfit in the very last photo is from Henny Lou Kids, Maureen's cousin's Etsy shop. Raven's birthday party was kitty themed with pink and gold sequins. She was not a huge fan of getting her hands down and dirty in that cake but so adorable!!!! Happy Birthday Raven!!!
We photographed Nicole and David's wedding almost 4 years ago and at the time they were living in NYC. I am SO excited that they not only moved back to Tampa but we get to photograph them as a party of 3!!! Aiden loves Elmo and is just so freaking adorable!!! Nicole had this backdrop custom made by an artist friend of theirs, Matthew David. Aiden wasn't quite sure to make of the cake at first but with a little cheering on he had a pretty fabulous cake smash! Besides the actual photography part, I LOVE getting to see our couples grow into families and capture these amazing moments for them. It was so hard to choose but here's a few of my favs!
The last time I saw Tristan he was a squishy newborn and now he's off and running on his own! Look at those big blue eyes. I love they colors the navy, and burgundy colors Cinda chose (and those short sparkly boots:-).
Ah! This little cutie is 6 months already. I always tell parents this is my favorite baby age because they are so cute and funny but they can't get away from you or really talk back to you lol!! Anum told me Leila is a daddy's girl but I think there's some pretty sweet moments with both of them. I love these 3!!!
I've gotten to photograph so many important moments for Anum and Eihab, engagement session (one of my favs ever at IKEA:-), wedding, maternity session, and now they are officially a party of 3! Little miss Laila is so cute and squishy she was very alert and didn't want to miss any of the action. I love seeing our couples become families it's literally my favorite! Stay tuned for Laila's 6 month and 1 year session!!!
And just like that this little guy is 1 and on the run! I love photographing babies at newborn, 6 months, and 1 year because they just change SO much. As a parent, you try to soak it in as much as you can, but it just goes by so fast (and usually you're so tired!:-) We used this cute little navy chair in each of his sessions so you can really see how much this little peanut has grown. He is so cute and I just love seeing your sweet family Autumn and Collin! xoxoxo
This handsome little guy has the cutest nursery his momma decorated for him. Alisa's friend, Whitney, custom made the wooden crate that he was the perfect size for snuggled in blankets. Alisa's mom and grandma were in town so we had to get a 4 generation shot and some sweet ones with grandma and great grandma!
Those blue eyes!!!!! How adorable is this little guy with his tiny Toms shoes and he has the best grumpy face:-) He's so close to being off on the run all by himself, just needs a little help from his daddy. Heather and Crafton, I love seeing your sweet family and this little guy growing up. xoxoxo
I love everything about this session with Lyani and Darren's family! Their boys are so handsome and full of life and energy. The toddler years are no joke (I have 2 of them so I can testify:-) The days are messy, and hard, and you are tired, but so full of love and moments that go by faster than you could ever imagine. I think toddlers make adults understand that life isn't always perfect and sometimes you just gotta roll with what you got. That's what I love about this session just real authentic moments with this sweet fam!
This little cutie has grown up so much since his newborn session! He doesn't even know it yet, but he's set for life for awesome birthday parties and cake for life (Grandma & Grandpa own Baker's Ranch and The Cake Zone) They threw a fabulous farm themed party complete with the cutest cake pops and a huge bounce house. He wasn't too sure about that cake but with a little help from his parents he got the hang of it. My favorite part: photos with grandparents and great grandparents. You might recognize my little cuties enjoying all the fun:-)

Seeing and photographing our sweet couples becoming families is really the sprinkles on top of the cupcake of photography work we get to do. I loved meeting Landon and seeing how much Katie and Zach absolutely adore this little guy! Pretty sure he's going to be a fireman like his daddy:-)
Ah, the cuteness in these photos, I can't even take it! Dax's sweet smile is priceless. Now he can sit up pretty well in that blue chair. I love using something in all 3 watch me grow sessions so we can compare and really see how much they grown and change so you'll see that chair in his 1 year session next May!
Only 6 months old and already so stylish! Tag is so squish-ably cute, all those funny expressions and you can see his little personality forming. Heather & Crafton it's always fun seeing your sweet family of 3 and how head over heels you are for this cutie!
I got to spend some time with this sweet new family of 4 (dogs always count as part of the family:-) Tristan has the most adorable nursery decorated with zoo animals and gray washed wood. It was so sweet seeing Cinda and Tyler as brand new parents and how in love they are with him. Addie wanted to be a part of the fun too!
This little guy is the cutest fisherman I've ever seen:-) His nursery is adorable with light gray and blue, stars, and the coolest barn doors that match his dresser perfectly. He stayed asleep for us almost the whole time and was definitely worn out by the end!
