Probably one of the biggest compliments you can receive is when a fellow photographer hires you for their portraits. In this case, my friend and colleague, Leslie Evans of Leslie Evans Photography, asked me to photograph her beautiful daughter Kaitlin. When she came in with two of her friends and 3 cool, vintage inspired dresses, I had two ideas. The first, white on white in a more glamour style. The second, poppy,¬†vintage inspired studio kitsch. Here’s a sneak peek from our awesome shoot!


P Family 2

That little roly poly newborn baby boy is already one!¬† We had him back in the studio 1 year later and he’s grown into the handsomest little man. And fast! He was always on the move! We had to be quick. Here’s a sneak peek of his session.

Check out the smile on this guy! So happy I got to meet him and his folks at our recent session in the studio. He’s got an adorable gallery full of pictures just as cute as these few in the preview. I’m looking forward to getting together with his mom and dad again to show off the rest!

Tallahassee Family Photography

I’m so lucky to get to work with many of the same families year after year. The W family is one of those families that I get to see at least twice a year and it’s so nice getting to see them grow. For their springtime session, we headed to Goodwood Gardens here in Tallahassee right when things were started to get green again for the spring. Here’s their sneak peek!

Tornillo 1

It was easy to get carried away with a sneak peek for Natalie because I love every single photo I took of her. It took me forever to get through them all because they were just that fun to play with. The girl is so photogenic! Looking forward to showing her and her mom the sneak peek from her senior photo session in downtown Tallahassee!

Lauren is one of those girls who never stops smiling! Going through her photos, I couldn’t help but have the same big smile on my face. It’s infectious! Check out her sneak peek and you’ll see what I mean!

Last year I photographed her sister Meghan, and now it’s just about time for Madison to graduate! We went out to the Retreat at Bradley’s Pond for this springtime senior session. Just like her older sister, Madison is heading to the University of Alabama too! Excellent choice! I have to say I’m a little biased. That’s my alma mater! Check out her sneak peek below and RTR!

Tallahassee Family Photography

These kiddos are only home when school is on break, so when we missed our opportunity over the winter holidays last year, I was bummed. When they came back for spring break, we were determined to get the whole family photographed before they left! Their mom told me that they hadn’t been photographed as a family since the kids were tiny. I’m so glad they decided to spend an afternoon with me while everyone was together to have their pictures taken! It just goes to show it’s never too late for family photos! Here’s their sneak peek.
