My 2 favorite things with newborns, catching them smile in their sleep and hearing that tiny new little baby cry. This handsome little guy gave us both:-) 3 years ago we had the honor of photographing Rebecca and Danny’s wedding and now they are a party of 4 with little miss Alayna being promoted to big sister. Congratulations you guys, such a beautiful family!!
If you know Heather, you know she loves Lilly Pulitzer! How cute are the matching shorts she found for Crafton and Tag? Their littlest guy Banks is 6 months old already and has the coolest little faux-hawk and those big blue eyes like his brother. We did this session in their back yard and with some of the cool decor they have. Parenting is legit, and sometimes sessions don’t go exactly as planned, but it’s so worth capturing that moment in time. That’s what I love most about photographing our families! So many cute little cheeks in this one!
Bethany and Brad are getting married next May at the Florida Aquarium! Bethany is from Florida and Brad is from Wisconsin so they wanted to do really cool Florida location to set the tone for their save the dates and I love this little hidden gem right on the water close to downtown Tampa. It had rained earlier in the day which settled the water and the sky to be a similar calm tone with a hint of pink, it was so pretty and fun!
Lyani and Darren’s family is now a party of 5 with their brand new handsome little edition, Noble. I have to tell you, I’ve gotten to be there for so many of their family’s important moments and my love runs deep for them. They have a lush garden that was perfect for their family pics and then we took little Mr. Noble in his nursery for some special ones with his mom and dad. Make sure you scroll down to see how awesome his nursery is……
Lyani is a very talented interior designer. So Noble’s nursery is cool and calming with all the different blue patterns but also fun and bright with the yellow dresser and the complimenting yellow in the chair, and that lion!!
We photographed Carrie & Mike’s wedding in 2012 and nothing makes me happier than getting to photograph their little ones! Shiloh’s big bother Noah was so excited to be in some photos with his new baby sister. Shiloh didn’t love her little crown but she looks so cute in it and is definitely a princess!!!
Landon’s shirt says it all, the perfect little gentleman:-) I love his little hat and that vintage chair. It’s actually a family heirloom as it was Lauren’s grandmother’s and we moved it outside in the pretty light of Lauren and Zach’s front yard. 6 months old, 2 little teeth, loves to play and has so much love in his life already!
I was looking back and actually got to start working with Aljerome in 2014 and he was working on building his vision which is Collar and Combs. Definitely check out www.collarandcombs.com, I love what they do, “Collar and Combs is a refined, but trend-conscious, personal style service for men. The company provides personalized style fashion and style recommendations based on each client’s taste and interests.” These are a few of my favs from the shoots I’ve gotten to work with him on. He always likes to be serious so I always try and make him smile and laugh:-) It’s so cool to hear my client’s vision and then see it become a reality. Awesome job Aljerome!
Our plan was to do an anniversary session with Erin and Matt right around their 2nd wedding anniversary this past November. All that crazy rain we had last year ended up making it a happy new year session, which was totally worth the wait! Erin incorporated the forest green color from the wedding and the Dr. Who Tardis that made an appearance at the wedding too:-) I love how fun and totally them this session was, plus those sparkly shoes!! So great seeing you guys again!!!
This first picture is my favorite of these 3! I think it embodies what happiness and love actually looks like:-) Mohan is SO adorable and just turned 6 months old. They wanted a pretty outdoor location and I love the deep and light blues look and those cute baby jeans!! I had the honor of photographing Lisa and Tushar’s wedding just over 3 years ago and there’s nothing I love more than seeing them so happy as a party of 3!!
Heather and Crafton’s beautiful family is now a party of 4!! I remember when Tag was born and he’s already 2 and so cute and ready to be a great big brother. Tag also wore this little white diaper cover. I love the light and colors Heather and Crafton’s room, it was perfect and Banks snoozed his way through most of our session:-)
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!
This sweet little guy has 2 big brothers that are going to teach him how to play all the video games:-) His grandparents were in town so we had to include them in some photos with him as well. His room is themed Winnie the Poo and he fit right in line with Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet in his adorable Winnie the Poo outfit. Here's a few of my favs from their sweet newborn/family session!
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!
