You know those really cute pregnancy announcement photos and videos that you see while scrolling the internet? Well I have wanted to be apart of a reveal for sometime now. Which is why it was particularly special when I was let in on the secret that one of the family members was planning to announce that they were expecting to the unsuspecting grandparents.

They had scheduled a group photo session in advance, but this announcement was surely icing on the cake. I am so excited for you all. Congratulations on the news of your sweet little girl!

Next on my photographer bucket list: Document a proposal 🙂

These two! We seriously laughed during their whole engagement session. It was one of those sessions where I left re-energized and in even more in love with this photographer life. Here are a few favorites from our session.

KALON Consulting, marketing agency of Southwest Florida.

When Ashley Burns, head of KALON Consulting first contacted me, I knew that this would be a really fun project. She wanted to update her business websites and wanted a fresh look to go along with her very organic views on marketing. If you are in need from someone in marketing, I would definitely contact her. She’s both sweet, fun, and she knows what she’s doing 🙂

I absolutely adored getting to work with her on this special project. Special thanks to Studio RK for hair and makeup and use of their fantastic space.

There’s no better way then to end a session with this 🙂

Styled Shoot: Boho Wedding Session

Bride and Groom, Fort Myers photographer, Fort myers wedding photographer, Photography thoughts, Southwest Florida Weddings, Weddings. Photography.

Let me start off my saying, I’ve been dreaming about putting together a styled shoot for a long time. I had the most special team come together to make this happen, and I must first start off by thanking them from the very depths of my heart for putting time and energy (and driving) into this! Maicie and Cody, thank you for being so wonderful to drive down from Tampa to be my models (and make shooting this so darn easy)! Tyler at Epic Salon and Suites  and Lauren Gomez, your hair and make-up skills are incredible, keep slaying it. Eddie (Five Oh Films), thank you for being my long-time creative genius, video friend. You are always so encouraging and I know the Behind the Scenes video will be nothing short of amazing. Thank you Tie the Knot Bridal Couture shop for allowing me to photograph a stunning dress. And Devon, for  allowing us (last minute due to a really ugly rain forecast) to use the Sydney & Berne Davis Art Center in Downtown Fort Myers. While most of the session had to be shot indoors due to heavy rain, at the very end we were able to sneak out for a few lovely shots in the rain.

It’s no secret that I have been fortunate to photograph all of this families big events- and this one was no exception! Little Reid is 6 months old and boy was he fun to capture on camera. He’s got a wonderful little personality!

Olivia Senior Portraits at Shangri La

I met with Olivia earlier this week to photograph her senior pictures at Shangri La Springs in Bonita. I have been wanting to shoot there since it has reopened. What a beautiful venue. Olivia first arrived with her two dogs, which was what she really wanted to make sure she got a few photos with. She wants to be a vet, so this totally made for adorable pictures. She was so sweet, and her beautiful smile was so infectious! Best wishes on your future, Olivia!

 

Enjoy a few sneak peeks of our time together.

Happy birthday sweet, little one.
