    The camera and lens have always been a comfortable place for me. A place I can express what I can't put into words.

    "If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn't need to lug around a camera." - Lewis Hine

    For years I struggled with who I truly was. As I have watched my friends and clients through a lens, I began to feel more comfortable in my own skin. Then, I became a mother to two little girls and my feelings of simply being comfortable with who I was turned into a sense of belonging and pride. I want my girls to feel and understand it too. I go without makeup-they still tell me I'm beautiful. I forget things, make mistakes and offer apologies-they still love me. They desire my eyes locked with theirs, my arms around their bellies and my kisses upon their cheeks. I will always fight my negative inner thoughts of imperfection, but today I will focus on them amidst the glorious chaos.

    Embracing the chaos. Glorious chaos!

    As I began to embrace who I was, I began to embrace my niche of photography. It was not intentional, but after encouragement from a few dear friends, I began documenting families within their homes. I lose myself in your moments while documenting in-home sessions. There has never been a time I don't find myself smiling or tearing up behind the camera.

    Children are most natural in their own environment. It's rare that a child walks by their bed and doesn't pause to squeeze a lovie and it's inevitable that someone will need a boo boo kissed or sat in time out. There is so much beauty within the walls of your home. Beauty of daddies dancing with pig-tailed/one socked little girls in the living room. Movie night tents and exhausted mamas sitting on bubble soaked floors while babies play. Pancake making and Saturday morning bike rides. Capturing your lives truly makes my heart sing.

    I would love to document your family just as they are!

Little Abby…{St. Pete FL baby photographer}

Abby is the sweetest little beauty and a happy girl as well (at least she was for the time I was there).:)I have been so anxious to get out to photograph her since she was born. Thank you Rhonda for allowing me to spend some time with you both to capture your precious girl. A belated congratulations.

Sweet JJ {Brandon FL newborn photographer}

JJ is here and is sweet as ever! I had the opportunity to spend the morning with Marijo and Nick a few weeks after Joshua arrived. You may remember their wedding and maternity pictures. We chatted, made a mess of the house, made more laundry (sorry Ms Eva Jo) and Marijo and I had ourselves a good laugh when we saw Nick’s reaction to being christened for the first time. Welcome to fatherhood Nick…there’s plenty more where that came from! I love you both and am so thrilled and honored that I have been able to document your love story.
