Our tradition has been going strong for 3 years now. An early March trip to the Strawberry farm to pick the gorgeous red gems at their peak. A slight crispness still lingers in the air and the sky hints at Springs imminent arrival. This year I stood back and watched as the gentle breeze played […]
The start of 2016 marked the beginning of another project 365 for me. A project committed to daily shooting and of documenting our growing family this year. More than ever I feel the need to capture the changes and the evolvement. It’s been a bit of a rough start as I struggle to get into […]
I didn’t realize how much I had missed South Africa until we returned a few weeks ago. The vibrant pulse and colorful culture of this place and the never ending beauty, a magnificent feast for the eyes to behold. So many fond childhood memories of growing up here. Where being a kid meant playing outside barefoot […]
This is my daughter right before school this morning. It’s just an ordinary day and nothing special is really going on but I felt the need to grab my camera and take a few images of her right at that moment. I’m so glad I did as something magical happened within my heart the minute […]
After saying goodbye to beautiful Lake Annecy we headed off to the heart of Provence. First to the amazing walled city of Avignon where every July the Avignon festival brings thousands of street performers and artists to the town. There is so much to see here. Opera singers on street corners, clowns on bicycles and levitating […]
Ever Since I was a little girl I had the stirrings of wanderlust deep inside my soul. I would look up at the passing planes in the sky and long to be onboard. Flying off to discover a new exotic location. There is nothing quite like casting your eyes to new horizons and taking in […]
When most kids were learning to laugh, Charley was learning to breathe. Born prematurely at 26 weeks, weighing only 1lbs 15oz, Charley spent his first 7 months of his life in the NICU at All Children’s Hospital in St Petersburg, FL, and another 5 months attached to oxygen when he finally came home. Now, at […]
It’s long been a bucket list dream of mine to shoot a wedding in a gorgeous international location and this Summer I got the opportunity to document Kari and Eric’s beautiful ceremony in the Luberon Valley in the heart of Provence. Known for its Spectacular countryside of vineyards and orchards, fascinating hill-top villages and incredible light […]

There is nothing quite like the effervescent glow of brand new love. Worn proudly on the doting faces of enamored parents. Wrapped up in a tiny bundle of innocence and perfection. Purity and grace. A perfect miracle. Another angel has arrived on earth.
I first photographed Riley and her beautiful mom when Riley was only a few days new. Over the years I have watched her blossom into a little lady with a huge personality. Her hilarious 4 year old wisdom had me in stitches as we took an evening walk through the streets of Historic Ybor City.
Mother and child. An unbreakable bond runs thick in their bones. Together, collecting and catching dreams that spark a fire in them both. Returning again and again to the safety found in each others arms. Together they are home.
These are our days. Days that come and go far to quickly. Ones I’m desperate to hold onto but still they arrive and depart as insidiously as the wind. 2015 we are excited for what you have in store for us this year. If the past two months are any indication we are ready to embrace […]
Childhood is such a big beautiful blurry kaleidoscope of amazingness. We try to hold on to all the tiny details and still they slip away from us. When we try to think back on days passed we fail to remember so much, but when we look back through photos, so much is remembered. I hope […]
My camera and I have been inseparable friends for many years! Our friendship dating back to a time long before kids, a husband and my current life. It’s been my faithful travel companion, recorder of milestones and magnifying glass for life’s endless moments. Offering a second look and a trip back through the archives of […]
The last few months have been a blur as the days fade into darkness before I’ve even had a chance to fully process the moments of light. I look back through my archives of photographs to experience the many priceless whirlwind moments a second time. This time drinking them in like I may not get […]
Looking back Summer feels like a dream. It seemed to be over before it began as these days time feels like a runaway train. The kids are back at school now and new routines have been established but my heart is still full at all we experienced together as a family in Europe this summer. […]

I have so many favorites from this session on the beach a few weeks ago with this sweet family. Their connection and family bond so strong it was almost palpable. They had warned me about being a little camera-shy but you would never know it. They simply focused on each other and the moment at […]
For me photographing mothers with their children brings me so much joy. Such a special bond exists there and a love so great it’s almost always palpable. I am humbled and inspired by it. This love, so delicate and undiluted and so very powerful. I was so pleased to meet this beautiful mom and her […]
It’s hard to believe we are well into March already. I’m happy to say I have really found my flow in my 365 project as well as the discipline to keep going. Documenting our days has become part of the new routine and looking back on 3 months worth of images only fuels my desire […]
