Eina + Taryn Dorado Wedding

Eina & Taryn had the cutest Literary Themed Wedding in Lakeland this October - from paper flower boutonierres with poetry written in handwriting to books cut into their monograms on their head table.  Taryn and her party got ready at her parent's beautiful home on Lake Morton. A few blocks away, Eina and her party finished up at a friend's home. What I e[...]

Penelope Rutledge Newborn Photography Session

I was so excited when I heard Penny had arrived - and even more excited when Jon contacted me about doing some newborn portraits.       Technically, Penny isn't the Rutledge's first child, but she is their first two-legged child. The furbabies wanted their portrait with Penny too. How sweet is Moses the P[...]

Kaley Shepherd Newborn Session

Kaley is my 3rd cousin, and I'm already in love. I took Kim and Rob's "We're Expecting!" Photos to surprise their family, so I was the first family member who knew Kaley was on her way.

I'm always read[...]

They mean well, but they want everyone to look exac[...]


Weddings I absolutely love to photograph weddings. The butterflies of excitement in the Groom's face as he waits for his Bride to appear. The giddy sparkle in the eyes of the Bride as he slips a ring on her finger. The silly look on the ringbearer's face when he hears "You may now kiss the bride…" Your wedding day will be filled with smiles and laught[...]

Wedding:Danielle and Kyle - Part 3

Just off the water, in downtown Bradenton lies the South Florida Museum, the venue for Kyle and Danielle's Wedding reception, and boy, was it gorgeous!

Gabby the Ballerina

I've known Gabby since she was 12, and had the opportunity to really watch her turn into a beautiful young lady.  Until this moment, she was still "little Gabby" in my mind, adorable, helpful, giddy and fun Gabby. On her 16th Birthday we reserved a few areas of the Terrace Hotel in Downtown Lakeland to have a ballet photo session. This was when I suddenly re[...]
