Carter Family

Family Session  |  Winter Park, FL  |  October 2017

Just looked at the list of sessions we haven’t blogged from 2017, and it’s crazy long (and also crazy good)! So, in the spirit of catching up little by little, we’re sharing this gorgeous family from last fall.  Liz and her girls showed up in perfectly coordinated (also adorable) outfits, and I knew this was going to be a shoot with some stunning images! It was a lot of fun capturing this sweet family in downtown Winter Park — home to a few of our absolute favorite locations — and as expected their images are beautiful.  ❤

Kendall – Class of 2018

Senior Session  |   Indianapolis, IN  |  August 2017

It’s beyond time we got caught up on blog posts from a year of incredible sessions and weddings! So to get the ball rolling, naturally, we turn to family. ❤ It’s impossible to fathom that Kendall (Simone’s baby cousin — check out the end of this post for a throwback photo!) is about to graduate and move on to college and everything beyond! We had a lovely summer day for our session at Cardinal Ritter & Marian University, and Kendall is a natural in front of the camera.  Sharing this session now, just makes us even more excited to get back to the Midwest this summer. Congratulations Kendall — we can’t wait to see what you accomplish next. 🙂

Flawless Head Shots

Partner Event – Head Shots  |   Winter Park, FL  |  November 2017

As a small business owner I so appreciate the hustle and heart it takes to strike out on your own and start something from scratch, so when the opportunity to partner with a couple of other local #bossbabes came up, I was all too happy to take part.  In partnership with Christina – an educator with BeautyCounter – and Lindsay – a professional makeup artist – we provided professional head shots for participants in the first ever Flawless Head Shot Event.  The event was a ton of fun, and we ended up with some really gorgeous head shots as well.  If you’d like an email with info for the next Flawless Head Shot Event, visit the contact page on our website and let us know!


Nicole – 1st Birthday

Children’s Portrait Session  |  Kissimmee, FL  |  September 2017

First birthdays are special.  For parents, it’s a chance to reflect on the joys and challenges of the past 12 months.  For little ones, it’s an introduction to birthday cake and the happy arrival of new treats and toys.  But for photographers, it’s a treasured moment — a chance to capture the budding personality and infinite possibility of a still new life.  Also, it’s just a darn cute age!




Rodriguez Family

Family Session  |  Winter Park, FL  |  July 2017

I could have spent all day with this family in front of the camera because goodness can they work it, and they’re just sweet as can be on top of that.  I really can’t wait to see this adorable crew again soon.  In the meantime, we’ll just be here scrolling through their gallery obsessively. 🙂




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.

Mirella + Luis

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? 🙂
