Huge news everyone! My PPA Loan Collection image “The Skeptic” appears as the cover of Professional Photographer Magazine‘s March 2016 Issue along side a featured article on my glamour and headshot photography! I am seriously on top of the world. If you had told me 5 years ago that I would one day have a cover image and featured story in one of the most respected national photography publications out there, I wouldn’t have believed you. To say this is surreal doesn’t begin to describe it. I can’t say enough what an honor this is and how thankful I am for Professional Photographers of America, who, alongside my local (TPPG) and state (FPP) organizations, have pushed me to grow as a photographer and to always be more.

If you are a PPA member you should expect to see this in your mailbox this week!

I just wrapped up senior portraits for my first ever set of triplets! The Corson triplets, Ansley, David, and Mikayla, all had their own individual photo session to celebrate their graduating class of 2017. I’ve selected some favorites from all three of their senior portrait sessions to share on the blog. Enjoy this little montage. It was such a pleasure working with this family. Congrats grads!

I first had the chance to photograph Anna Cay as a a volleyball player for Leon High School a couple of years ago. I was so excited to be asked to shoot her Tallahassee senior portraits. We set out this year’s favorite location, the J.R. Alford Greenway, and captured AC and her beautiful smile in one of Tallahassee’s hidden treasures. It was such a pleasure getting to work with this family again. I just ordered her senior album and it’s going to be gorgeous!

EmmaLea rocked her Tallahassee Senior Photos session! You can’t help but smile with this girl. Funny, animated, refuses to wear shoes in the wilderness, this girl is a blast. Her entire session was amazing and it was so hard to just pick a few to show!

“You must photograph your daughter all the time!” Weeeeellllll….not really. My daughter has what I like to call, PKS, or “Photographer’s Kid Syndrome. She’s not at all impressed that her mom could take professional pictures of her on any given day. For several years now, she’s protested almost every shoot we’ve attempted. I usually get 1 or 2 nice photos of her before she hits a wall and is completely done. Yesterday morning, I said, “Hey do you want to go to Target and pick out a cool outfit and go do a photo shoot at the studio?” I fully expected to be shut down, but she actually said, “Yes!” I think going to Target had something to do with that. We picked up some newspaper after Target, she and her dad helped me build this little set and just like that, instant Valentine’s Day shoot with my favorite girl. Here’s just a few from the shoot.

Family Photography in Southwood

It’s hard to be still when you are 2! The P trio decided to have family photography in Southwood for this little guy’s 2nd birthday. It feels like just yesterday I was shooting their maternity session!  So glad that we were able to do a shoot while they were in town for the holidays! I hope to head up there to photograph them all in their new hometown in 2017!

Family Portraits at Goodwood

It was my second time photographing the lovely Money Family. This year we did family portraits at Goodwood Gardens! It was breezy and a tiny bit cloudy, but we had a great time exploring the Spanish moss covered trees and beautiful plantation property that we had seemingly all to ourselves.

Here’s a sneak peek for the family! Looking forward to getting together with them and showing the rest of the gallery!

6 Month Portraits

It’s hard to believe that it was just earlier this year that I photographed his newborn session. It was already time for Austin’s 6 Month Portraits! And just in time for the holidays, we got a few Santa Baby shots. We may have had a teeny bit of trouble squeezing him into those red pants!

It’s been a couple of years since I photographed this beautiful family, but it was worth the wait! These were some of the first kiddos I photographed when I got started in this business and it’s been a treat to watch them grow up. Here’s a few of my favorites from our session out at J.R. Alford Greenway. Looking forward to getting together with them to show off the rest of the gallery!
