Seaside was such a whirlwind! 5 sessions in 3 days. Early mornings, late nights, living on coffee, but it was SO MUCH FUN! Seaside, FL is really one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to and I got to go with one of my good friends Vivian Johnson! She came along and did hair and makeup on most of the families I photographed, so fun!

Anna & her girls were amazing to photograph and even at 6am! Such troopers!

You get what you give

I really love photographing this amazing family. The sense of real emotion in thier photos always amazes me. Not only do they have a beautiful connection, they bring so much to their sessions. What I mean by that is that they show up ready to be themselves in front of the camera and to show their connection without any embarassment or shyness. I struggle sometimes trying to explain this to families. I can think of all the fun games and ideas at family sessions, but what I need from you is to be YOU and to not be afraid to share it and to show it. It will pay off in the images. I promise you. You get back what you put into it.

My goal is to capture something wonderful, something meaningful, but if you are acting uncertain, insecure, shy, etc, it really creates a wall that I have to jump over to find you. Just remember at sessions to be YOU. I will open that space for you to show affection and love for your loved ones and hopefully capture something beautiful. Remember, you are wonderful just the way you are.


Can’t you just feel their love for eachother? I can, and it’s beautiful.
