Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome to my place on the web! I am a natural light lifestyle photographer. What does that mean?? It means no bright hot lights to sit under, it means playing outside, it means having fun, it means giggling and being goofy and doing what kids do best while I capture the essence of your child or family. It means no stuffy "smile and say cheese" photos. It means heirloom quality art for your walls that shows who your children are TODAY. Captured. It means details, and most of all it means a fun session! Here you can read about everything from my latest sessions and sneak peeks to the crazy antics of my crazy, fun, beautiful, silly kids.

    Isn’t she lovely {Sarasota Children’s Portraits}

    Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

    Last week was an incredible blessing in out little neck of the woods :) Not only did my husband and I celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary, but we welcomed 2 amazing girls into our family when his Brother got married. I can now say I have a niece and a sister(in-law, but being an only child, I’d really just like to say sister ;) ) We are so so so happy for the three of them and feel lucky to have them in our lives!!! Listen to me getting all sappy…
    I had fun taking some shots before during and after the beautiful beach wedding. My little man was the ring bearer (I will share those photos tomorrow). Naturally, their daughter was the flower girl. And she was a beautiful flower girl. See…..Modern Childrens Portraiture

    Sneak Peek {Sarasota family photographer}

    Sunday, March 28th, 2010

    Last week was busy, busy for me! It is really springy here, and the weather has been beautiful! If you know me at all though, you know that we (hub’s and I) loved the cold winter that we had. I think it must be in our blood to be north a bit. Not too far north though :) We are enjoying this weather for what it is because before we know it it will be all out summer…until November.

    I had the best time photographing this fun family! I think Dad has had his fill of photo session for the next 3 years, but we all had fun! The location could not have been more beautiful. If you have never been to Selby Garden’s you must check it out. Amazing.

    I hope you enjoy your sneak peek B Family! And I really hope it isn’t 3 years before we do it again!!

    Why. {Bradenton Childrens Photographer}

    Friday, March 5th, 2010

    I am working on putting together my portfolio of images, among a lot of other back end business building stuff. Not as much shooting as I’d like to be doing, but I know this stuff has to be done. But in the process of choosing some of my favorite shots from my past sessions I am reminded of why I want to do this. I am reminded of what I love about capturing and creating images. And through this, I think it’s plain to see what my passion in photography is. Children. Look, I’ll show you.

    (many if not all of these images will be gracing my portfolio page when I can decide on a format I love and quit changing my mind!)

    The Emotions. {The pleasure of being a parent, the innocence and joy of being a child}



    The Moments. {The small moments that say so much}



    The Details. {The ever fleeting details of who they are, RIGHT NOW. My favorite kind to capture.}
