Meet Tristan | Tampa Portrait Photography

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!

Tristan Smiles!

Party of Ten!

I’ve photographed a lot of family portraits over the years, but I’m pretty sure I set a personal record this past weekend with two adults, one (very adorable) three year old, and seven dogs. Did you happen to catch that last part? SEVEN dogs!

Meet the Clark family…and are they not one of the best looking families EVER? Seriously, it’s almost too much cute for just one picture. 🙂

I’ll admit that “posed” portraits are not exactly my specialty, but I have to say that I had a lot of fun, and this was definitely of the most entertaining sessions I’ve ever had. I do think that LAUGHTER is the key…I’m so thankful these guys have a great sense of humor!

Of course I’ll be sharing more pictures of all the pups (including Tristan, the adorable two-legger) soon!

Erika the Cellist

Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing Erika, a young but already very accomplished musician. This girl has crazy talent – and she’s still in high school! I had a lot of fun with her – she is extremely sweet and photographs beautifully. Here are just a few of my favorites…

One cute two year old should be followed by another cute two year old! Meet my good friend Parker, who also happens to be a farmer in the making. Or perhaps a dog trainer? Just look at the attention he gets from his doggie friends – I’m thinking maybe I need to hire him to assist me!

Meet Shaelyn, perhaps one of the sweetest two year olds I’ve ever met. I’m so glad I had the chance to capture her playful personality during a little impromptu photo session while I was in Indy. Isn’t she adorable? A big thanks to mom and dad for having me over, and best wishes to you and your little one on the way – I’m sure Shaelyn is going to be an awesome big sister!







Liza + Rodrigo

While in Indy, I met up with my good friend Liza and her friend Rodrigo in Broad Ripple for what turned out to be a really fun portrait session! Talk about naturals – I’m pretty sure these two aren’t capable of taking a bad picture. I had a great time and am so glad that we had the chance to get together – here are just a few of my favorites:

Indy Trip – Sneak Peek!

I just returned from a wonderful trip to Indiana and am now in the process of sorting through over 1,600 images! I had a great time visiting with some friends that I haven’t seen in many years, and had the opportunity to do some really fun photography sessions while I was in town. Not only did I capture my usual 4 legged friends, but some two legged friends as well! Here’s a little sneak peek – more to come!
