Sadie + Jacob

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…

What an adorable pair! I’m pretty sure I set a personal record for the number of favorites from a session…thanks again to Sadie and family for a lovely evening!

Baby Connor | The G Family

I recently had the pleasure of photographing the G family, who were down from Alaska (!) visiting family over the Thanksgiving holiday. I had *such* a fun time with them! Today I thought I would share a few of my favorites of baby Connor, who is 9 months old, beyond adorable, and one very happy baby!

I think this first image might just be a new all time favorite of mine – *LOVE*!

Thank you Connor and family for a really fun session; I hope you love these as much as I do!

Parker’s Turn!

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!

Meet Jackson

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!
