Vieira Family @ Lake Park

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!  

Lyani & Darren's Gender Reveal!

We've gotten to photograph so many special moments with this sweet family!  Lyani texted me a photo of a gender reveal balloon and asked if I had time for a little session with them. UM yes!  This is the 2nd gender reveal sesh we've done and everyone was sure it was a girl this time except for Avery. and he was totally right! It's a boy! So much love, joy, and surprise in these.  Congratulations on your new little one coming soon!!  We can't wait to meet him! 

Raven is 1!

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!!! 

Jan & Mark

Jan and Mark are getting married next month!  They wanted their engagement session to include their girls Jessica and Kd, Jessica's boyfriend Kyle, and of course all their pets!  Jan had just gotten this sweet new Jeep which we had to use.  I love this session because it's totally them at home with their family.  Their dogs loved being in the photos, their cats not so much so they got their own portraits:-)  We are SO looking forward to their wedding on June 9th!!! 

Welcome to the World Wake John

It's almost Mother's day! There really isn't anything better to be able to post on this mother's day weekend than this sweet sweet newborn session with Wake and his mom and dad!  I got to know and love Erin and Joe having photographed their wedding last March and am beyond happy to have the honor of photographing their sweet family of 3. Wake's nursery is so cute, decorated in navy with stars, books, and the wagon that was a gift from his Aunt.  I had to take all the books out and use it as a prop:-)  Happy first mother's day Erin and congratulations again you guys!!! xoxoxo

Welcome to the World Krish

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!

Aiden is 1!

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!
