Family Portraits SHOULD BE FUN. There should be laughter, play, tickles, cuddles and games. Families should be photographed having fun together. Loving each other. Because that is WHO our families are. We play. We have fun. We Love. So, anytime a client has a specific idea for fun portraits I do my best to help them make it happen. When meeting up with a Watch Me Grow family for these portraits are even better. All along, Sara has told me her ideas for fun portraits. She and
When clients return back to capture milestones in their child's or family's life it's pretty much the greatest compliment I can receive. Capturing a Fresh 48, Newborn, 6 Month and First Birthday portrait session for this adorably sweet baby girl and her family has been wonderful. Watching the red hair grow, silly smiles, new teeth and tiny pig tails as a little life moves from baby to toddler. It' can't help but make you smile. So, check out some of my favorite images from Mi
During my newborn session today the mama asked me how long I have been a photographer. I said, "Well, I started in 2010, but didn't really fully develop until 2012 and even since then, I have been growing." See, in 2010 my only clients really were family. A few friends. And a couple amazing families who, God bless them, gave me a shot. This was one of those amazing families. 8 years and 3 kids later, I am still blessed enough to call them clients and friends. And to still be
It's been a busy Spring with so many gorgeous mamas waiting to meet new little lives, and I couldn't be happier. Melissa's St Augustine FL Maternity Session was gorgeous. Sunrise by the water and empty streets made it perfection. Meeting this little man was just as wonderful. If you have been following me for awhile you know I love newborns. I love dogs. So when a sweet little newborn has a fuzzy big brother. I am on happy Photographer. Capturing Mr. C at home with this big b
It's not secret I LOVE St Augustine, FL. Just walking around always makes me feel like I am on a vacation. I also have been LOVING the gorgeous mamas to be I have been blessed enough to capture lately with their Maternity Portraits. So, Maternity Photos in St Augustine, FL??? I can hear the angels singing now. Yes, even a sunrise session for a non morning person is SOOO exciting when it's a Maternity Portrait session in my favorite city. So, make Friday even more Fri-Yay and
I've said it before and I will say it again. I LOVE my Watch Me Grow families. I love that I get to know them. Get to see their little one as they grow, change, reach new milestones and get adorable little personalities as they go through their first year. Maternity Portraits, Newborn Portraits and then all those milestones. I get to capture big smiles, sitting, crawling, laughing, little dimples, and chubby legs. Everything you love about your little one. I work to capture.
Before the holidays I was lucky enough to meet up with a brand new family for a Family Portrait session. The sunset was amazing. We played, chased, looked for fish and had a wonderful easy going session which always turns into the best possible images. So, warm up inside and check out some of my favorite images from the Schlag Family session!

It's no secret I love Lifestyle Portraits. Whether for Newborn Photos, Family Photos or in this case, a beautiful 6 month Milestone session. I was blessed enough to capture Miss C for her 48 hour Session (see below) We then met up to capture her beautiful, in home, Lifestyle Newborn Portrait session. So, when her mom contacted me about a Lifestyle session for her Half Birthday (6 Month Milestone session) I was thrilled! She and her brother did wonderful. Sweet smiles, silly g
"Baby: A little bit of heaven, sent down to earth" Over the past year I found where my heart is. I found the style of photography that calls to me. I gave up on trying to be other photographers and copy their style. And I couldn't be happier.
Each and every Lifestyle Newborn session makes me happy. During the session, editing the session...looking back at the images later on. I love it. Every time now. Sure, I see areas I need to grow and better myself. But I no longer feel
"A year is 365 days of your story...make it a good one" I can't believe it's time to say goodbye to 2017. I have been blessed to photograph so many amazing families. To capture the laughter, giggles and love.
From newborns to silly toddlers and fun teenagers, I have photographed it all. And enjoyed every minute of it.
So, as we prepare to say, goodbye, write our resolutions, choose our "word of the year" or whatever your traditions are, I wanted to say Thank you to all
