Beautiful Family…and an announcement!

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

I can’t believe I never blogged this gorgeous family. They are great friends of ours and I always look forward to their sessions b/c they are completely laid back and go with the flow…they tell me to do my thing and that’s just what I do–and they are ALWAYS so grateful. LOVE them to pieces!

Ok ok…NOW onto my announcement!!

Hallmark (yes THE Hallmark…as in greeting cards!) came across their beautiful images and contacted me. Seems they wanted to purchase their images, along with some others, to use for advertising!!! My first reaction was…huh? is this a joke? Once I got over the initial shock, I was SO excited! Beyond excited, I was ecstatic!

I wanted to share this with all of my clients, friends, family and those who follow my work. I am humbled, honored and blessed to call this business my own. I love it. Yes, even during my busy season. :) This “job” has enabled me to be home, be flexible and still be present for my family. I couldn’t have built this business without the help and support I receive daily from my husband (really, I wouldn’t be in business if it weren’t for him!), my family, my friends and my fans. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to share my passion with you, and for supporting me in it. xoxo

Now onto their beautiful images that you may see online at Hallmark OR in the stores!












Tea Collection {Retail Spotlight}

Friday, December 16th, 2011

I have blogged before about Tea Collection...usually through Wardrobe Wednesday. Well this time I was lucky enough to team up with Tea Collection and take pics of my own children dressed in the retailer’s bright, colorful and beautiful clothing! Tea Collection is known for their “destination” lines of clothing. This season’s destination is Modern Mexico and I am in love with the fun and colorful pieces! Take a look for yourself.









I love the Tea Collection line, not only because it’s colorful and full of life, but the rich tones they use are perfect for children’s portraits! Their clothing is also super durable (and comfortable), holding up to the every day wear and tear that children put it through. And for those of you in charge of the laundry, it washes VERY well! (and tends to be wrinkle free!) I can’t say enough wonderful things about this line of clothing. It’s just awesome!  Check out their holiday line…it’s gorgeous. (there is also free shipping for orders over $150.00!!)

Wardrobe Wednesday {Retail Spotlight: Jacks & Kate}

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

I hope by now, our Wardrobe Wednesday {where fashion meets photography} posts have gotten across that white or black is a bit boring. Hopefully what we’ve been conveying is that when it comes to portraiture, bright, colorful and even whimsical is way more exciting! A couple of months ago, I stumbled upon THE cutest, most colorful and different children’s clothing I’ve ever seen! I decided I needed (ok ok…WANTED) a few things for my own kids, so I contacted the genius behind the sewing machine. Krisha Hinkle is the owner and sole designer of Jacks & Kate, a local Fort Myers area company. She whipped up a few shirts for my son, and an adorable dress for my daughter. Every time they wear their Jacks & Kate apparel, they get compliments and I get asked where their clothing is from. Not only is this clothing adorable, it is made VERY well and with love. Krisha is super talented, that’s for sure! I almost fell off of my chair when I read that she is self taught and only been at this for a little over a year. WOW. Not only does Jacks & Kate offer adorable ties, bowties, name and number t shirts, t shirt dresses and other dresses, but also totes! These bags are SO adorable and would make a great purse, overnight bag, diaper bag and yes…camera bag!! Enough rambling…bring on the eye candy!


Make sure you look at all of the images…there might be a special promotion code at the end!
