Photography is my passion, my family is my everything...
They 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 to despair 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. That is what drives my passion for photography, and I get so much joy in doing the same for you!
I often laugh and cry at my photo shoots... I have played in the sand and made a friend out of a shy toddler (or chased a wild one!), bantered and giggled with a stubborn teenager, or helped a reluctant dad relax and have fun.
My Promise to You:
I will have patience and not push your kids to be what they are not ... what you will get from our time together are beautiful, 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 ...
You will have fun, you will laugh, and you, your spouse, and the kids will go away with a smile on your faces. 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!
