A North Straub Park Engagement with Jessica and James

January 23, 2018

Most love stories start with butterflies in your stomach, or the yearning question, “Do they like me too?”. But when I asked Jessica and James how they met, they practically told me it was love at first sight without saying it was love at first site. Set to go on a sailboat for the afternoon, […]

Personal Branding | Using Photography to Redefine Yourself

January 16, 2018

I recently spoke with a friend who is going through a breakup. Together for years, it can be hard to imagine your life with anyone else, or even alone. For all you know, your heart is in a million pieces and you’re not quite sure you’ll be whole for a while. I know. I’ve been […]

Roxy and Rob’s Downtown St. Pete Engagement

January 12, 2018

Engagement sessions are some of my favorite sessions for many reasons.

From body language to comfortability, these sessions really allow me to read how you two work […]

A Christmas Gift

December 25, 2017

This morning as I sit on our couch listening to classic Christmas tunes and watching our dogs play with their new treats, I can’t help but be overcome by so much gratitude for this life. It really is true what they say. The older you get, the more you just want to be surrounded by […]

Bree and Anthony met while Bree was vacationing in Florida visiting her grandparents. She had a few days to explore the city on her own so she jumped on Tinder to find someone to go to Busch Gardens with. I can’t tell you how many love stories I’ve heard that begin with Tinder! Thank you, […]

Fall Dinner Party Editorial

October 5, 2017

I grew up eating lots of different kinds of food. We would eat the good ol’ American staples like my mom’s fried chicken, or the occasional steak on the grill, but it wasn’t until I was older that I really got to explore certain types of foods. My first taste of acorn squash was a […]

Fun Downtown Tampa Maternity Session

September 18, 2017

Three months ago I had the pleasure of being a part of a gender reveal. If you have ever been a part of one, they are incredibly exciting! There was even more excitement for me since I was the only one who knew what the couple was having. My good friends Morgan and Morgan trusted […]
