Gabby's Senior Photography - Lakeland Photographer

This session almost didn't happen. It rained for 2 days, and we talked of re-scheduling, but we both were on tight schedules, so we agreed to do it, even if it rained on us. Mei-lin did her hair and makeup, Brooke and Mia tagged along for entertainment, and we happened upon some beautiful scenery.     Gabby is such a beau[...]

Shepherd Family Christmas Session - Lakeland Photography

I think I love taking photos of my family more than anything else. Rob, Kim, Kayla and Kaley (all my cousins) met up with me at Circle B Reserve in early December. I assured them early that wildlife sightings were rare this time of year, but we saw more Armadillo and Birds that day than I've ever seen in all the times I've been out to Circle B.  The light wa[...]

Lorelei June Woodger - Lakeland Newborn Outdoor Photography

Little Lorelei June was just a dream to photograph - So much so, many times I just had fun looking at her, and forgot to take pictures! She cooed, talked in her jibberish baby talk way, and even laughed. I was pretty excited when Carolyn and Ryan were happy with doing this photo session outdoors in early December. But hey, it's Florida! It was about 70 degre[...]

Riley Donnelly Newborn Photography

Brian Donnelly was first my student. It would be a gross understatement to say that he was a troublemaker in my class. Later, we became friends. (The troublemaking didn't cease.) I remember many phone calls with Brian on the other end, but 3 stand out. The first was when he called me to announce he had just become a daddy, The second was he was marrying Juli[...]

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[...]

Ruggiero Family Maternity Session

The Ruggiero Family is simply adorable. I photographed this trio last year for a family photo session at Circle B Bar Reserve, and if you haven't seen those photos, I suggest you take a look! I was so excited to hear they were expecting a baby, I couldn't wait to photograph the bump!   This maternity session quickly turned into the Olivia sh[...]

Megan Percy's Duality Session

I'm always excited when the step-kids come to visit for the summer. They definitely bring life to our household, and I always wish they could stay longer.   Each visit, we always end up taking pictures - the life of a photographer is such that no kid gets left behind in photos.  Of course, I have a photo session planned for my long-haired post-pun[...]

Amanda Thiele Senior Photo Session

    Amanda is a baller. A Volleyballer to be precise. She and her sister Karla are both talented volleyball players, and Amanda recently received a scholarship to Carnegie Mellon University for her amazing skills on the court. I had a blast with these beautiful young ladies - they are a force to be reckoned with.   [...]
