What I love about photography is the ability to freeze a special moment in time. I love looking back at old photos, at the old black and whites of my parents when they were dating, prints from my childhood, of special times with my grandmothers, funny photos of my little brother and I in costumes, embarrassing photos from school and college with the big 80s hair (yes, I am that old), my wedding, my babies' first steps, or first day at Kindergarten, their toothless grins, their achievements.
My most precious possessions are the photos I have all over my home.
My family are my inspiration. They can make me cry with pride, laugh until it hurts, wonder at their innocence, love with a passion, and even drive me crazy sometimes! Our kids change so quickly ... the little ones they once were no longer exist, the relationships have evolved, changed, and developed over the years, and they literally become different people right before our eyes!
I have been fortunate to capture so many amazing photos of my own family over the years ... their little faces smiling and dirty, their sweet butterfly kisses, their snuggles, the adolescent awkwardness and their boy-man lopsided grins. Just looking back at all these treasures evokes such deep emotions in me that is takes me back to a different time... I wish I could wrap up these memories and the emotions and keep them forever. Capturing the special moments in our lives is magical. That is what drives my passion for photography, and I get so much joy in doing the same for you!
So This is My Promise to You:
I will have patience and not push you, your spouse, your kids or seniors to be what you are not ... I want to get to know you. What do you enjoy doing together as a couple, as a family, as an individual
From our time together you will receive creative and precious images that will tug at your heart strings, images that will make you laugh and cry, images that showcase your relationships and real life, images that you will always treasure.
We will have fun, you will laugh, and you, your spouse, the kids, your senior will go away with a smile on your faces. You can relax and enjoy your time together. I will take care of the rest
Whether you are visiting from out of state or live right here in St Pete, I strive to give you portraits that you love, and a photo shoot that is as fun and unique as you are!
