Meet baby Peter! Michelle and Sam welcomed their newest little man recently and big brother Nick is elated! Michelle and I met through our local Mom’s Club and it has been so fun to get to know her and Nick over the past two years. And now she’s a mama of two! She is kind, patient, and so smart! I loved their newborn session… the sweet family cuddles, Peter’s southwestern nursery, and the joy of these proud parents.

Enjoy Peter’s newborn session!

Meet the newest addition to the Miller family, baby Jackson! He is absolutely precious and his big sister is his biggest fan. I had the privilege of documenting this beautiful family’s newborn session a few months ago. Their house is a dream! I know Allison (the beautiful mama) through our local Mom’s club and it’s been such a treat to watch her transition from one child to two. She is such a gentle, nurturing woman and I love watching her as mama to her two sweet babes. I’m always encouraged after spending time with her, especially as my own family is preparing to welcome a new baby soon.

Enjoy Jackson’s newborn session!

Tampa Wedding

Pauline and Matt – Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast Wedding

October 31, 2019

Palmetto Riverside bed and breakfast wedding

So excited to share with you the new Mr. and Mrs. Dockins!! Pauline, a PE/health teacher, and Matt, an engineer, met through the mountain bike racing community. Yes, there is mountain biking in Florida! Through their many common interests, especially cycling, they fell in love. They even got engaged in the middle of a trail during a bike ride together. I love how they thoughtfully included their love of cycling in their wedding day, mostly Matt’s big entrance into the ceremony and Pauline hopping on her bike in her wedding dress and shoes for a few photos. Their wedding day at Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast was full of love, support, laughter and a beautiful ceremony under a huge, gorgeous oak tree. It was such a joyful day! I also loved getting to see my past wedding couple and friends Kristin and Zach at this wedding!

Congratulations, Pauline and Matt! We are so excited for you!! Enjoy this preview from their wedding day.

Meet sweet little Caroline! Tara and Austin, along with big brother Bradley, welcomed their precious daughter this summer. I had the privilege of documenting this beautiful family at the end of July and it was the sweetest session! Mama Tara just exudes beauty and grace. We taught at the same school together a few years ago. She is such a wonderful and creative teacher and it was so much fun to watch her be mama in her home with her toddler and new baby girl. So excited for them! Enjoy these photos from Caroline’s newborn session.
