Macy and Bryan Gender Reveal

January 9, 2020

Tampa gender reveal photo session

My sweet friend Macy and her husband are expecting a new baby and I got to photograph their exciting gender reveal! I had the honor and nerve-racking privilege of opening the envelope with the gender inside and handing over the matching color smoke stick. There was so much adrenaline and excitement! Their life was about to change in just a few seconds! With their adorable toddler in their arms, they lit the smoke stick and first, white streamed out and then it quickly turned to blue. It’s a boy!!! Luke is going to have a baby brother! So excited for this family!!

Kate and Jude – Tampa Family Photography

July 23, 2019

Westchase Family Photography

Do you follow @busytoddler on Instagram? The sweet mama behind that account has started a movement called #proofofmom with the whole purpose of getting moms in front of the camera! It doesn’t matter if you’re in a fancy outfit with makeup on or in workout clothes and three day old hair. The goal is to capture moments and memories with your kids. I love it. For Mother’s Day, I did a Mommy & Me photo session giveaway on Instagram to help further the proof of mom movement. I had so many wonderful women enter the contest and I was so excited when Kate, my new friend from our local children’s gym, won! She has an adorable son named Jude that’s just a little younger than my James. I joined Kate and Jude at their house for a lifestyle family session. These two played with blocks, cars, toys, and read books in the rocking chair. We did all of Jude’s favorite things in his room and we created such sweet memories! We got proof of mom!! I loved this session and hope to do many more just like it in the future!!

Tampa Mommy and Me Photos

I am so glad that Megan reached out for some Mommy & Me photos with her sweet daughter Sophie, who just turned one! As a mom, Megan knew it was rare for her to actually be IN the photos. She took action, contacted me and said “I want to be in the photos with my daughter!” YES! We got together at Armature Works and had so much fun! Sophie is the sweetest little lady. It was so much fun documenting this sweet duo!  Continue Reading

South Tampa family photographer

Sweet little Remy turned ONE last month and we celebrated her birthday with some portraits at home. Remy and big brother Royce are such a fun pair together. They were making each other smile and laugh during the entire session! It’s so much fun to document families as they grow. I first met Jessica and Mike for their engagement session in 2014 and then Royce’s newborn photos in 2016, his first birthday photos, then Remy’s newborn photos in 2018 and now her one year session! Love this family!
