I am posting some new photos of the gallery wrap canvases below. They come in a wide range of sizes, come ready to hang, have a thickness of 1.5" and have a matte finish. They are a gorgeous alternative to traditional enlarged prints. Please contact me for available sizes and pricing if you are interested in a gallery wrap from your session,

Tis the Season

I wrapped up my holiday sessions with friends Jen & Gabe and their family. They are very close with Jen's brother and his wife, so they decide to make this session a family affair, complete with all of their dogs, some well behaved, and some not so well behaved :) We shot on a gorgeous fall day outside of the Mennello Museum in Orlando. Here are some of my favorite images from their session. Enjoy!

Holiday Shoot with Parker

I did a holiday shoot with good friends Emily and Steve and their 8 month old baby boy, Parker, last week. What a cutie! We got so many smiles out of this happy baby. We shot at their beautiful new house, which had great lighting and lots of open space to work with. I had a great time shooting this picture perfect family :) Parker kept us all laughing and was a real trooper during the entire shoot. Mom and Dad did an excellent job keeping him entertained! They have a beautiful area on the water close to their house, which is where we ended the shoot at sundown. Thank you for inviting me to spend the afternoon with you guys, I enjoyed every minute of it! I have a lot of favorites from this shoot, so it was hard to narrow it down, but here are some of them. Enjoy!

Baby Maggie

I had a newborn session with baby Maggie this week. She is just about 4 weeks old and a tiny thing. We were able to get a few smiles out of this sweet girl, as well as mom and dad, during the shoot, which always makes me happy! She also had the inclination to fall asleep in the perfect belly position, which allowed for some nice shots. David and Allison are taking to parenthood very well, they are both naturals :) Thank you for inviting me into your home for the morning, I thoroughly enjoyed it and Maggie did a splendid job! Check out some of my favorite images from the shoot below.

Ryder's Holiday Session

I shot a holiday session with baby Ryder last Sunday. He's growing fast, already 4 months old and counting! He is such a cutie! Mom had the perfect little Christmas outfit picked out, check out little Santa baby below. He decided to take a cat nap towards the end of the session, which worked out perfectly for some basket-o-baby shots. He woke up shortly after and was all smiles for mama! I have so much fun every time I shoot with Kirk, Cara & Ryder.....thank you guys for inviting me to spend the morning with you.

Baby Michael

I did a newborn shoot last Saturday morning with 8 week old baby Michael. He was very cooperative and slept through most of the shoot. He particularly enjoyed our first shots which had him basking in the morning sunlight on the dining room table. As all newborns do, he eventually got hungry and we had round 2 of the newborn poop party, which I did not capture this time around (as I did with baby Ryder, see previous post below if interested), but it was very funny! Each time we thought he might be finished he came up with something new, which Dad had to bear the brunt of. Newborns are unpredictable, which makes every session a joy to shoot! See some of my favorite images from the session below. Thanks to Alicia and Joe for inviting me into your lives for the morning! Michael is a beautiful baby.

When Daddy was smooching Michael, he would purse his little lips, it was ADORABLE!

I had a holiday session last week with a pair of sisters who were the most fun. They followed all my instructions and hammed it up for the camera and we ended up with some great, natural shots of them just hanging out with each other. Their parents have a beautifully landscaped pool and patio area with a very cool fountain, which you'll find a photo of below. They also get the most perfect warm lighting on their front porch as the sun starts to set, which we caught just in time! These girls are gorgeous and I am happy to share some of my favorite photos from their session with you below. I will do a follow-up post when we design their holiday card. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Riley & Tess

Greetings to everyone! I had the pleasure of shooting my good friends Ryan and Lauren with their two little girls, Riley and Tess, last weekend. We shot at Shalom Park in Ocala, FL and found some great morning light. We continued the shoot back at their house where I was able to get some really fun shots of Riley watching her favorite, Curious George, as well as enjoying a delicious pb&j made by grandma herself! We also had some fun in the backyard on the swing with bubbles and playing with sidewalk chalk. I love shooting children in their natural environment where they are most comfortable, which is usually at home. It gives a photographer a little window into life through their eyes. The beautiful Tess baby was all smiles, what a happy baby she is. She just turned 3 months old and that age is a dream to shoot! This was a totally fun shoot with lots of variety. See some of my favorite photos from the shoot below. Enjoy!
