Vanessa class of 2016 [Lakeland Senior Photography]

I love working with teenagers.  And I love high school seniors especially.   This particular senior had been on my calendar for a couple of months.  I have photographed her several times over the years and was so excited to meet with her for this occasion.  She’s a truly beautiful girl, inside and out.   Her beautiful […]

This sweet girl was the winner of the individual Instagram giveaway I had back in February.  She met me an a downtown area, again on a cold morning in February.  I love how we incorporated her love of reading and her Bose headphones.    These sessions are all about letting kids be themselves!

BFF’s [Lakeland teen & tween photography]

Back in February, I did a promotion on Instagram and gave away a BFF session to the lucky winner.  These girls have been best friends since preschool!  We had a blast together on a pretty chilly morning in downtown Lakeland.  These girls were natural models….seriously.

When I first started thinking about what kind of tween sessions I wanted to do this year, I already knew the first two models I wanted to use.  These girls are best friends and are the daughters of two very good friends of mine.  I’ve known them since they were little girls and have watched […]

Why Tweens?

This post is LONG overdue!  Any of you that follow me on Instagram or Facebook have probably noticed a shift for my business into more of the tween and teen market.   Well, I want to finally make it official and explain the thoughts behind these amazing sessions! Over the years, I have actually done teen […]

I’m thinking it’s now safe to share more fun family sessions that I had in the fall….everyone’s Christmas cards should be sent out by now. 🙂  It’s January 5th and I’m so excited to say that even mine are done and were sent out a week ago as well!! I think that’s a record for […]

The ‘E’ Family [Lakeland/Orlando family photography]

Happy New Year everyone!! I really can’t believe it’s 2015 already.  The older I get, the faster time flies I think.  🙂  The fall has been as crazy as ever for me with family sessions for the holidays.  I actually stayed in town for Christmas this year, so work hasn’t really slowed down yet.  I […]

The ‘J’ Family [Lakeland family and children photography]

The bulk of my sessions this time of year are family sessions.  I love family sessions! I love getting to know these families and watching the family dynamics and interactions.  Even though we are only together for about an hour, I really do feel it a privilege and an honor to spend that hour capturing […]

The R Family [Lakeland family photography]

So…I realized today that I never shared the images from this family session I had with good friends from church.    Looking at the date stamp….um….we did these in (cough, cough) November (cough, cough).  Woops!!  Better late than never I always say!!  🙂 Like I said, these are great friends of ours from church who we […]
