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!

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!

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!

Wheeeee!

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…

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!
