To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow. —Maya AngelouRead More
“Support small businesses”. This is something you see posted a lot on social media, or talked about in social settings. It really is every single client that keeps a small business owner afloat. Sarah Beth is one of those clients.
I’ve known Sarah Beth for several years. She first hired me to photograph a boudoir session of her, then her wedding, and again when she was pregnant with her second child. I got to witness her marry her loving husband and photograph her when she was carrying their child. Sarah Beth is a hair genius and has a lot of connections. I know that she could have very easily hired someone else for those events, but she chose me. She believes in my art and wants to make sure I flourish. This type of relationship builds my confidence, keeps me in business, and solidifies my decision to do what I do for a living. Not only that, but it allows us to build a trust. I’m able to show up and create art because I know that Sarah Beth believes in what I do, as she has hired me for three huge life events. She has become completely comfortable in front of my camera, and let’s face it, she’s a goddess (I mean, just view the photos).Read More
This session was going to be different than the one Krysten did when she was pregnant with her first (Vada, seen pictured). Andrew, her husband, wasn’t going to be able to take part in these. While she really wanted him there, I love that it gave us the opportunity to focus on her. We made plans for Vada to be in some of the photographs, but I told Krysten that I really wanted most of the session to be about her and the new baby. Here is my reasoning:Read More
Krysten and Andrew are expecting their second baby (the photos bellow are from their first pregnancy, with their daughter Vada). I wanted to ask Krysten some questions as to why a maternity session was something that resonated with her. Also, why she chose to do more of an intimate maternity session, as opposed to the traditional.Read More
When it comes to maternity, I really want the story to be about the mom and baby. Pregnant women sometimes feel like they have lost their identity, and I love to help them see that they are still beautiful and wanted. The story is theirs and I’m just there to capture it.
This was Jenna’s third child and she wanted to do something a little different. She knew this was going to be their last time having a baby, so this felt like the perfect way to preserve it. She left her husband and kids in Tampa to come do this session in my home. I believe she really enjoyed that time to herself and with her new baby, as a month later he'd be born and things were sure to change.
