I have been photographing newborns, children and families in Tampa since 2006. I believe that there is an art to photographing newborns, something I have been doing since the beginning. I also believe that photography is not just about documentation or pushing a shutter. A photography session with me is not about me at all, it is about YOU. You should see yourself, your children in your photos, I am about capturing your kids personalities; those silly or quirky things they do that make them who they are. It’s not about the perfect outfit or standing up straight. It’s not about being on your best behavior or “getting it over with”. If your child is quiet and soulful then I promise we won’t spend the entire session trying to make them smile. Although if they voluntarily give me a smile, even better. That means it was REAL. If you’re child is outgoing and silly, we’ll capture that! I don’t want to take your photos once. I want to watch your kiddos grow up. The very best part of my job is the people, the relationships, the families that trust me year after year to document their lives. I would love to get to know you and would be honored to document your life.
A few things about me…
I fell in love with photography in 2003 when my Grandmother gave me her film camera. In the right light, it took breathtaking images and I was hooked.
I am married to my best friend who I met in the Virgin Islands on vacation. We have three boys and one girl.
I LOVE renovation, projects and interior design. I grew up in Seattle in the house my parents built and the smell of saw dust still makes me nostalgic. We recently bought and renovated a house built in 1944 on two acres.
I am an extrovert to my core but I also love alone time snuggled up with a glass of wine and a soft cozy blanket.
