Jessica + Lillian — CheerLyfe

Portfolio Session  |   Kissimmee, FL  |  December 2017

We are so excited to share this super fun winter session!  Jessica and Lillian are the epitome of Generation Z — energetic, moving a million miles a minute always, and completely plugged in to their social media.  These two also have an incredible, and totally of this era, story — they met through Instagram because of their mutual love for CheerLyfe (an online retail line that strives to “deliver the most stylish apparel at the highest quality to cheerleaders, dancers, families and the industry professionals” and recruits spokesmodels like these two to promote CheerLyfe products through their personal social media channels) and have since become the best of friends.  The day of our session was actually their very first time meeting in person as they live in completely different states (Florida —-> North Carolina), so that made the whole shoot even more momentous.

We asked the girls how they first connected and feel about each other, and their responses were almost identical:

Jessica said,

We both absolutely loved CheerLyfe. . . from there we hit it off. We text and FaceTime every single day.  She is my best friend in the entire world.  what I love most about her is her kindness.  She is the sweetest person I know.  she has a wonderful sense of humor, and I am grateful to be her friend!

and Lillian,

We met through CheerLyfe and just started talking and it turned into everyday FaceTimes! I love how sweet and kind she is, and I know she would do anything for me!

We had a blast meeting these two and are already looking forward to future collaborations (*hint hint) as they continue to build both their friendship and individual platforms! ❤

Holiday Minis 2017

Holiday Mini Portrait Sessions  |  Winter Park, FL  |  2017

Our Holiday Minis this year were such a success, and we loved meeting so many new friends! While we could easily share ten times as many images from these fun sessions, here are just a few groupings from some of these gorgeous families.  We’re already planning even more dates/times for 2018 Holiday Minis including an early bird special pricing option, so keep an eye out as we move closer to the fall. Until then have a great new year!

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.
