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!

Austin turned 1 and so it was time for his 1st birthday session! Austin has one of the most expressive little faces I’ve ever seen. That morning, he was feeling a little shy, then annoyed, then shy again, and by the end it took a little love from Mama to bring out those big boy smiles. Sometimes a guy just needs his mom! Happy birthday, Austin! Looking forward to watching you grow!

At Home Sessions

Another one of our sweet at home sessions from this year. Some of the kiddos I work with can be a little shy and sometimes the best place to photograph them is in their own element. He let me into his little world for just an hour or so and I was so happy to be a guest.

Outdoor Family Session

Our first attempt at the Field Family outdoor family session was almost thwarted by a location mishap. The first park we went to shoot at had a private party scheduled and no admittance! No big deal, we all hopped back in the car and drove over to one of my favorite shooting locations, Railroad Square Art Park here in Tallahassee. I loved how the bright colors of the park’s buildings and greenery played against these two kiddos. Just a super fun shoot all around!

Baby Henry makes 3 for the Stephens family! We decided to beat the summer heat and do the entire in home session at their house which made for such a lovely backdrop. Henry’s first photos were so much fun to do right there with big brother and sister at their most comfortable spots in the house. Looking forward to many more shoots with this family of 5!

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!

Hair/MUA: Belles Femmes

“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!
