Courtney's Maternity Session

You all may remember a beautiful bride named Courtney from a little over a year ago, and her husband, Bill. I shot their wedding in May of 2009 and what comes after marriage??? The baby!! Courtney is expecting their first child in mid April :) Her and Bill flew all the way down from NJ to do their maternity session with me in sunny Florida. What a fun session! We had perfect Spring weather and our first stop had the most beautiful blooming Japanese magnolia tree that we took full advantage of. Another stunning couple in a line of many that I know :) What beautiful kids they will have. I can't wait to meet the little man! Courtney was a true sport throughout the entire shoot. Some of the shots were a bit of a stretch for a woman in her "condition", such as balancing herself on a very narrow tree stump-haha! We all enjoyed that shot, perhaps Bill and I a little more than Courtney :) But, we got a lot of great shots and thank you guys for being so flexible and willing to indulge me! Enjoy some of my faves below. Can't wait to see you guys in a few months.

Doug & Christine's Engagement

I had the pleasure of shooting Doug and Christine's engagement in Tampa last week. Their wedding is coming up in April, its sure to be a spectacular event with a waterfront ceremony and rooftop reception. We couldn't have asked for a better day, the weather was perfectly gorgeous and we even had some spring blooms nearby. Christine's adorable little girl, Kasey, participated in the first half of our shoot, but eventually had to get back to the playground :) We shot at Curtis Hixon Park, where they have a pretty impressive childrens' playground to keep the little ones occupied for hours. So, off we went to do a bunch of couples shots. Doug and Christine make, quite obviously, a stunning couple, so my job was made easier by how good they look together. They are so in love and that certainly comes through in their body language and how sweet they are with each other. All in all it was a fabulous shoot, I couldn't have asked for better subjects, weather or location. Enjoy some of my faves below. D&C, I can't wait for the wedding! Thanks for all your cooperation and for just being yourselves :) BEAUTIFUL!

Baby Olivia

I shot baby Olivia's newborn session about a week ago, when she was just 8 days old. What a little nugget she is! Such a beautiful little lady, with lots of dark hair. And she had so many expressions for just a tiny thing. I love to see the range of emotion in newborns, they smile when they sleep and look at you inquisitively when they're awake, so much to take in! I had so much fun on this newborn shoot and Olivia was very cooperative :) The younger they are the better where newborn sessions are concerned. Thanks to mom and dad for your patience and for trusting your new little bundle to me, we got some great shots and you all did a fabulous job. Enjoy some of my faves from the session.
