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 […]

Mother-Daughter Creative Shoot

Last week I had the most beautiful session a photographer could ask for! Vintage car + beautiful models + gorgeous dress + epic location + amazing sunset = the perfect session. So thankful for the car and plane “guys” that set up the location and vehicle prop we used (we were actually supposed to have […]

Half Way to 1st

If you’re looking for a creative 6 month session for your sitting baby – look no further! This mama “hit it out of the park” with this idea! Baby O very much enjoyed playing in the dirt and with the baseballs as well. Can’t wait for his 9 month session coming up very soon!

Happy Birthday – Mom!

Have you noticed the new trend in birthday photo shoots? They are for adults! And I’m here for it all the way! Jenniffer came to me last year and now this year for a birthday session for herself. This is probably the 5th adult birthday session I’ve done in the past few years. I love […]

Miss ‘M’ [Lakeland children photography]

This past weekend I was reunited with one of my former baby plan members…sweet not-so-little-anymore Miss M.  I haven’t seen her or her parents since her 1 year session last year.  I just love how much of a difference a year makes!  She’s BEAUTIFUL!  She was beautiful before as a baby, but wow – she […]

E & T Maternity Session [Lakeland maternity photography]

You probably recognize this couple by now.  I blogged about their pregnancy announcement back in August, then their gender reveal in October.  This month it was time for their “official” maternity session.   I have felt absolutely blessed to be walking through this exciting journey with them.   I have their due date highlighted on my calendar!  […]
