Hanley & Sawyer…{St Pete FL lifestyle, family and newborn photographer}

Hanley would like to announce her new position as BIG SISTER to baby Sawyer. She has fallen right into the role and loves holding her and making sure she has everything she needs. It’s a lot different than having mommy and daddy all to herself, but she’s handling it like a pro (at least for the afternoon I was there).
Sawyer is wonderfully pink, round and smells of that delicious baby scent that causes you to close your eyes and drink her in while you are holding her.

A day in the life with Henry…{Tampa FL lifestyle and family}

I spent a rainy, Saturday afternoon with Henry a few weekends ago. He showed me all his new tricks since he’s one year old now. He organized the kitchen cabinets a bit for mom, practiced walking, raced us with his walker, splashed in the muddy water, demonstrated clean hygiene (which was my favorite part) and shared his food with everyone. It’s a busy and exhausting life for a one year old. We adults just don’t get how hard the toddler life can be.

A day in the life of Mr Smiley…{Tampa FL lifestyle and family photographer}

I’ve had the privilege of getting to know the Smiley family since before Mason was born. Phil and Jen wanted to document Mason’s first birthday milestone in their own house which I thought was a terrific idea. It was such a fun afternoon of laughs, drool and big baby bellies.
To date, Mr Smiley, One Year Old, Mason loves being chased down the hall, throwing his sippies off the counter, chasing the cats, eating his own shoes, hiding under and behind furniture, looking at himself in the mirror, dumping his bucket of lego blocks over his head and climbing the stairs if he can get there before no one catches him.

Easter 2014 Mini Sessions at Botanical Gardens!….{Clearwater FL mini session and family photographer}

Botanical Gardens in Largo was the perfect setting for this year’s Easter mini event. 20 families sessions took place this past Saturday.  Thank you for bringing your beautiful babies and children. The children did wonderful and the jelly beans were just the incentive to keep us all going. Half way through, I got to switch gears with a senior session and engagement session.

A huge thank you to my wonderful and trusted photographer friend Kenzie Shores for working so hard with me all day. You were vital to helping me pull off this event. From moving furniture to “lighting director” (yes, I have given you an actual job title-put that on your resume).  Special thanks to my talented florist (she’s mine, but I will share her) Lee Newey of The English Rose Florist and also to my sweet friend Lisa Malott of Wish Vintage Rental for the beautiful furniture that garden “go-ers” said and I quote…”Oh we just thought it was part of the gardens for today. We can’t sit here?”

Abbey! These are beautiful! You did an amazing job!

Sarah & Ryan are married!…{Tampa FL wedding photographer}

When I asked Sarah to tell me what the most important part of the wedding day to her would be, she immediately said it was the music. Stringed instruments, horns, an organ, a piano, drums and singers filled the church as Sarah and Ryan walked down the aisle together-and they sang as they walked. Their ceremony was personal and sacred-shared among their friends and family. Even Sarah’s mom signed during one of the songs. Later at the reception, a stringed quartet from the Florida Orchestra played as guests entered.
Sarah has such a sweet spirit and a lively personality. It’s easy to see why Ryan adores and cherishes her the way he does.
Congratulations you two! Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your day! I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
