Giddy. That was me driving home after my session with Sadie and her family. SO MUCH FUN! Sadie is a lab puppy and not only is she beautiful, but she has such a neat little personality. This little girl has an abundance of confidence and attitude…I know her family is going to have a lot of fun with her!
Jacob is her big (human) brother, and I’m thinking a career in acting could quite possibly be in his future. Such a ham! He and Sadie definitely kept us on our toes. : ) I had an impossible time selecting my favorites, but here are just a few…

We’re enjoying some lovely weather here in Sarasota this week…fortunate for all of the spring breakers in town, and absolutely perfect for a sunset session on the beach!
I had a lovely time with baby Camille and her family. Isn’t she *gorgeous*? While I generally tend to be a big fan of color and contrast, I loved the softer, slightly vintage feel for these images…just a little peek at a few of my many favorites. So sweet!

Meet one of my newest friends, Herbie. He’s a nine year (young) lab mix, who looks 99.9% lab to me – although he is a *really* big guy! Unfortunately Herbie has been recently diagnosed with bone cancer, but clearly no one has told him – he’s happy as can be! Other than a slight limp, he looks great and has that wonderful Lab smile (and some goofy faces) that’s totally contagious. Well, contagious to everyone except his one year old human Josh, who was not exactly impressed with our photo session. But that’s okay; Josh is still a cutie and we did manage to find a few smiles near the end!
I hope Herbie has many happy, smiling days ahead. Thank you Leslie and Kelley, for giving me the chance to meet your awesome boy.

Poor Parker; now that he’s no longer the baby in the family, he’s probably getting used to waiting patiently – or maybe not. I’ll just have to tell him that I saved the very best for last!
Some of you might remember Parker from last year’s Indy trip…well he sure has grown up a lot! He’s no longer the shy little boy that hides behind mom. He’s now an (almost) four year old who likes to beat up poor, unsuspecting friends who come to visit him from Florida. And yes, that would be me. : )
In fairness, he can also be very sweet. And silly. And definitely entertaining. We had some great conversations complete with lots of gestures, eye rolling, and some very dramatic sighs. While I have some classic, “cheesy” Parker photos, I was drawn to some of his more candid images. Being an awesome (brand new) big brother is a big responsibility!

Baby Preslee is one of my newest little Indy friends – she’s just 9 months old and is a DOLL! I think she’s probably one of the happiest, smiliest (is that even a word?) babies I have ever met. I had so much fun with her and her family, and every one of her images makes me smile.
Preslee is just starting to stand on her own and I know that pretty soon she’s going to be running all over place. Lucky for her, she lives on a farm and will have all kinds of fun things to play with growing up – including horses and cows! She is most definitely going to be one of the cutest little cowgirls around. : )
Thank you Preslee and family for being so much fun…hopefully I’ll be seeing you again next year!

Since I scheduled my Indy trip around the birth of this little guy, he gets to go first!
Meet baby Preston – he’s just two weeks old here and I dare you to look at these without going “awwww”. Impossible. I had such a hard time choosing some of my favorites to share…he’s just too darn cute! Love-love-love them baby faces!
I’m thinking this one would make a perfect gift for his 16th birthday…poster size, of course. : )
Hangin’ with daddy – so sweet!
And last but not least, here’s one with big brother Parker, who will have his very own post soon!

Almost two years ago, I had the pleasure of photographing two wonderful Vizslas named Kensi and Carter. I had such a nice time working with them so when their mom contacted me about a family session with their now 2 year old son, Jackson, I was sooo excited!
We decided to meet at Phillippi Estate Park in Sarasota and despite the heat, the setting was perfect! Jackson is *so* much fun – in addition to being absolutely *adorable*, he’s got a great little personality. And I just love-love-love his great big smile and those blonde curls – such a handsome little guy!
And look, it’s baby Jackson! I had to pull this one from the archives…love that little baby smile!
A super big thanks to Jackson and family for a really fun session!

Just look at this little pup…isn’t he cute?!

I find photographing kids very similar to photographing dogs…they are adorable, very entertaining, easily distractible, and highly motivated by treats. Not to mention, they can be a lot of fun! Tristan is one very cute three year old with a big personality and smile that is downright contagious. I dare you to take a look at this first image and not smile!
