This next session showcases two of my favorite tweens – my dear friend Lydia’s girls, Rachel & Kaylee.  Lydia and I have known each other since college.  In the past few years I’ve had the incredible opportunity to travel with her all over the world photographing corporate events.   On those travels, she and I often […]

Michaela [Lakeland dance photography]

[Check out www.realmeteens.com for more about my teen work – especially teen dance sessions!] Over the past year I have gotten the chance to photograph several middle school dancers.  These girls have blown me away with their leaps, jumps, and kicks!  Seriously.  They work so hard during these sessions so I can get “the shot”.  […]

Quinceanera portraits

Madison [Lakeland teen & tween photography]

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!
