Happy 2nd Birthday!

I was so happy to be able to capture this little man’s 2nd birthday photos. He wasn’t super happy with me most of the session, but can you even tell? Parents of littles….when a session feels like it’s gone badly, I promise 99% of the time we’ll still get GREAT images.

Why family photo shoots are a MUST!

I recently had the honor of meeting this sweet family on my property in Bartow. Mom said she fell in love with the rustic charm we have here with our mossy oaks and hay rolls. And we lucked out with lots of dandelions to play with as well! These kids had so much fun chasing […]

Family Spring Sessions | Bartow, FL

So excited to share some of my favorites from my recent family spring mini sessions! I don’t always offer family spring mini sessions, but I always love how they turn out when I do. There’s something so bright, colorful, and almost hopeful about spring time and knowing summer is right around the corner! Although, spring […]

Sunrise Creative Shoot

I decided in January of 2023 to push myself out of my comfort zone as a creative. This started with a model call asking a couple different ladies to rent a beautiful gown and let me create a gorgeous session for them. The first was the gold gown / airport session back in February. The […]

The Brown Family

A couple of years ago, I had an amazingly epic photo shoot with this sweet family at Ft. Desoto beach. This year, we were trying to figure out how to top what we did last time. Well, I would say renting a beautiful gown and a fully restored vintage car definitely did the trick! We […]

‘B’ Family

I met up with this sweet family at their family home in Davenport. There are so many things that made this session special… This family had me laughing…..a lot! They were truly just fun to be around for the hour I was there. The adult children grew up here and some of them still live […]

I’d like to take a moment today to share a few favorites from another senior session I had a couple of weeks ago.  This is Nick.  Nick is in ROTC and is in the process of becoming an Eagle Scout.  He is very strong in his faith and has one of the biggest and most […]

Grace – Class of 2016 [Lakeland & Bartow high school senior photography]

I just finished up ordering prints from this fun session.  This is Grace…class of 2016.  We met a few months ago for her senior session one morning and had tons of fun.  She brought her mom and a friend (senior sessions are a lot more fun with friends following us around!).   She’s such a beautiful […]

Country Maternity session [Lakeland maternity photography]

A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to meet this awesome couple for a maternity session.  This setting was perfect for their country tastes, the weather was not too hot, not too cold that night, and they brought baby cowboy boots to incorporate into the session.  How can you go wrong with that?   […]
