Katie + Matt

Wedding  |  Bay City, MI  |  June 2017

These two  ❤  Let’s just start by saying that when one of your second shooters calls you to shoot her wedding you get a little bit giddy! I was so honored that Katie wanted me to be a part of her big day especially since I know how well she understands all the ins and outs of a wedding day (and is a fabulous second to work with on all fronts).  She and Matt are an infinite amount of fun – as was their wedding party – and despite some touch and go weather, they were both calm and clearly enjoying themselves throughout the day.  The morning was full of beautiful details, sweet gestures, and funny moments that really set the tone for the rest of the day, and I hope for the rest of Matt and Katie’s marriage.  I could go on and on about this couple and what a blast their wedding was, but perhaps it’s better to just let the pictures speak for themselves.  Congrats and much love to the new Mr. and Mrs.

Lifestyle Session  |  Park Ave – Winter Park, FL  |  May 2017

It’s so great to work with clients who are willing to have a little fun during their session.  It’s also a treat to capture some less than stuffy head shots for professionals in all fields.  Mirella and Luis contacted us to get some updated shots for their new website, and I certainly hope we’ll get to work with them again very soon! Also, how great is downtown Winter Park? 🙂

Caleb – Class of 2017

Senior Session  |   Alfond Inn – Winter Park, FL  |  May 2017

It’s hard to believe that the school year is already over and another group of seniors will soon be off to college and jobs and life beyond high school!  We’re just glad we got to meet a few of them, like Caleb, before they branch out into new awesome adventures.

Carlos & Luisa

Maternity Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  April 2017

So I have to confess that the Alfond Inn is quickly becoming one of my new favorite places to shoot, especially on days when the Florida sky threatens rain.  I’ve driven by for years on my way too and from home, but until recently hadn’t spent much time inside. From the constantly changing art on the walls to the beautiful garden spaces, the Alfond is great for a weekend getaway or a quick maternity session.  These two were super flexible and adorable — you can just see how excited they are about the newest addition to their family! Congratulations — we can’t wait to meet your little one in a few months!

Head Shot Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  April 2017

Not sure how we always seem to end up with the sweetest clients, but Kelly is just one more gem we were so lucky to shoot with recently.  A small business owner (aka Bad Ass Boss Lady) who recently struck out on her own, Kelly was as lovely in person as she looks in all these shots. You can check out her LuLaRoe shop online — I know I can’t wait to make my first order!

Mini Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  December 2016

Holiday outfits and two adorable sisters makes for pretty easy work, and there isn’t much else to say about this beautiful family.  Our session was quick, but definitely not lacking in cheer! I hope I’ll get to see these two little ones as they grow — I have a feel they’re going to be peas in a pod.

Mini Session  |   Winter Park, FL  |  December 2016

Little ones always make a session even more entertaining and eventful, and little miss was no exception on this day. I loved having this lovely crew in front of my camera not only for the spunky energy of their youngest member, but also because they were just fun! We soaked up some gorgeous evening light and got some really nice images in the process. 🙂
