Sitting outside a local cafe I can remember two things: 1) I had forgotten my sweater and was quite chilly and 2) This couple was something really special! We talked all about how they met, […]

Getting Ready at Crystal River Train Depot

Underneath big white letters that formed the word “SOUTHERN” on the side or a red colored railway car… they stood together holding hands. Husband and wife. Could there be a more perfect depiction of their newly wedded bliss? The same two country kids who started dating in grade school, just minutes before, stood in front […]

Maternity on the rocks at Fort Island Beach

Alisha arrived barefoot in true southern fashion, looking stunning in her long flowing white dress. The way the light poured in through the mangrove trees, the burst of sun between Alisha + Jeff at sunset, and the pastel colored sky that remained afterwards literally has me obsessed with every. single. photo. from this maternity session😍 […]

This little ray of sunshine was so much fun to photograph! Opal is freshly one year old! We originally planned to do her birthday photos a couple of weeks beforehand, but delayed them until after her actual day of birth so that a very special person could be a part of them- Opal’s daddy! Dylan […]

In case you don’t know Lauren personally-she’s a BIG fan of tacos! So her sweet friends threw her the cutest taco-themed baby shower complete with lots of festive colors, decorative cactus and the cutest Mexican-themed cookies 😍 Perhaps the funnest detail was a colorful donkey pull-string piñata which was used to reveal the gender to […]

The last time I had the pleasure of photographing the Lavoie’s, it was for a maternity session in which Cecily was pregnant with their second child. Months later now, sweet Savannah Rae has joined the […]

There is just something so romantic about a backyard wedding. No walls or fancy artificial lights, just those that matter most all gathered under a big open sky. Jimmy and Sarah were married at an absolutely gorgeous spot on the river. The lush green grass contrasted beautifully against the white folding chairs that were all […]
