SOPHIA FLORIDA SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER Feb17

SOPHIA FLORIDA SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER

SOPHIA – FLORIDA SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER Many of you might recognize this gorgeous girls face as that of my oldest sons girlfriend. Sophia. So-So as my younger children like to commonly call her in our house. Brennen and Sophia have been dating for almost a year and a half now so she’s like an extension of our family. We all adore her. My own parents adore her. She’s definitely a positive addition to our crazy family. Thank goodness she doesn’t hold our craziness against us. 🙂 I had been dddyyyiiiinnngggg to have Sophia in front of my lens since the day I first met her. However, my son always detests when his friends or girlfriends become “clients” of mine. He knows by becoming a client, we form a bond that is hard to break. He also hates having me up in his space – loving on his peeps – and them loving on me right back. As a teen, a mom who works in a field where she’s in front of your friends a lot or shooting your varsity high school football games – on the sidelines with your teammates and such – I’m sure it becomes quite irritating. I try to respect that and appreciate it from his point of view. Therefore, with Sophia…I never pushed. They both knew I was here – armed and waiting – if she ever wanted to do a session with me. Brennen finally caved and they told me one day that he was “granting permission.” I was like a giddy little school girl. You can see why. My camera is obsessed with So-So. The one thing I love about this shoot with her is that we captured Sophia. Truly her. I love how she shows up at my home in her converse, ripped jeans and a plain tee on most days. She isn’t one that is running around as a teenager in overly skimpy clothes. I commend her for that – especially in today’s era. I see so many teen girls half dressed anymore and it’s especially bad in my line of work. Thankfully, Sophia is secure with herself and can rock a pair of jeans a white tee like nobodies business. But then there are those moments when she throws on a dress and heels and you’re like…Woah! Even then though. She’s classic. Simple. Modest. Absolutely stunning! And her eyebrows. OMG! I’m 40 years old and so extremely jealous of her brows. It’s so not fair!!! She has a smile that is out of this world and she loves my son. We love her around these parts. Like a lot! In fact, my special needs daughter, who is 12 years old…pretty much thinks that Sophia hung the moon. Literally. We love Sophia like one of our own and we love how she loves on our children. Not just my firstborn – as his girlfriend – but also how she loves on our other three kiddos too. Brennen picked a true gem with So-So. She’s gorgeous inside and out.

WHEN TOMORROW ISN’T PROMISED…{Naples Florida Family Photographer} Jan14

WHEN TOMORROW ISN’T PROMISED…{Naples Florida Family Photographer}...

If there was ever a day that the value of photography was confirmed for me…that day is today. As a professional photographer, I know with my whole heart how important photography is. But today…today it’s running through my veins like never before. Some of you will recognize the above family session from me having shared their sneak peek images on my social media accounts last month. And many of you will recognize that beautiful blonde senior who is 2nd from the left – next to her dad – as my client and ASP’s senior cover girl model for 2016, Alexis. When I met Alexis, I instantly fell in love with her after scouring her social media accounts. I fell in love with her love for her family. In all of the images on her instagram account, there were more than the norm for a teenager of her family. Her Dad, her brother, mom and sister were strewn throughout her account like a teen would share their best friends. In several of the captions, I saw where she had listed her dad, her mom, or her brother as indeed…her “best friend.” Her openly professed and extreme love for her family members is one of the reasons why I chose her as the senior cover girl model for this year. I’m a huge Daddy’s girl myself so her love for her dad especially resonated deeply with me. Since making her our cover girl, I’ve shot with her several times. In the process of those shoots…I’ve fallen more in love with her and her whole family as well. One of our most recent times together was last month when her Mom, Kimberly, hired me to shoot their family images. She worked tirelessly to assure that all of their...

NAPLES FLORIDA BEACH PHOTOGRAPHER Oct11

NAPLES FLORIDA BEACH PHOTOGRAPHER...

Family beach sessions here in Naples, Florida are always such a treat because each night looks so incredibly different compared to the last. There is never a way to predict the final look of the night until you’re in the depth of it and can witness in person just how stunning it is. Add in a gorgeous family such as this one and you’ve got a match made in heaven. The laughs, the love, the colors they chose…everything just fits! On this particular evening we had a mix of somewhat gloomy skies and then an opening of a bright, vibrant, orange, sunset in the sky at the last minute. The four of them were so incredibly loving and so fun to work with. The siblings were like the best of friends and it echoed in everything they did. That’s hard to find at times. 🙂 As the orange began to pass below the horizon line, we got a burst of other brilliant colors up in the sky as well. Perfection! Little bro decided he wanted to reenact the Karate Kid scene on the wood pilings. He’s like my 5,678 client who can’t help but do that when they see these. Who can blame them??? Laughs were had by all and the sunset proved to be bountiful for sure. If you or your family are interested in a Naples Florida beach session, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’d love to freeze these memories in time for you as...

TAYLOR {FT. MYERS SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER}...

Well…the 2015-16 senior season is off to a roaring start. We have seniors already booked into January of 2016 at this point. If you or someone you know is wanting to book senior portraits, now is your time. Our summer rains here in Southwest Florida will be dying down soon and it will also be cooling off some in the coming months. In a nutshell, we’ll have some great months ahead for senior portraiture. This year is going to creep right on past you. Don’t get caught at the midnight hour trying to gather all of the last minute necessities for your open house – that includes your images for your grad card invites and so forth. Lots to check off the to do list in the coming months. I saw this recently and thought of all my senior clients as well as their parents. Time is such a thief! It’s so very true! Have a wonderful year! XOXO,...

TARYN | NAPLES SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER

I photograph a lot of Seniors who are not residents of Florida. In fact, I shoot just as many out of state seniors as I do in the state of Florida. Many come wanting to capture their senior year images on the beach – which I absolutely love. I always guarantee that your images that I shoot for you will NOT look like your buddies next to you in first period. I strive to capture the most genuine you during your session. Not only are you investing in my time when I show up to shoot your session but you’re investing in the experience that I give you as one of my clients. I promise that it will be an experience like no other. Like with Taryn’s session above, we have fun. I discuss details with you that help me get to know you well before our time together. By the time I meet you in person, I want to know what makes you tick, what you love and what you don’t. If you select the option of doing a beach session here in Southwest Florida, we make it count! We focus on not only the sand, sun, and salty sea air but mainly on you and what your life at this moment looks like. Taryn loves to play the guitar. In one of her “selflie” images I noticed of her on Instagram, I saw her guitars in the background of her shots. I asked her to bring one to her session. Talk about a way cool guitar.  Our beaches in sunny southwest Florida never disappoint. Therefore, they provide an UH-MAY-ZING backdrop for your senior imagery. Whether you choose the beach or a different location here in town for your sessions, I can assure you that your images will be unique and all your own. If you’re considering a senior session in the coming months, you know who to call. I’ll make sure you have an incredible experience in front of my lens. A memorable one at that! XOXO,...
