Special Little Valentines

I just adore anything custom, especially these little guys. Cute, tiny, creative and unique Valentine's Day cards for your child thanks to the sweetness of MCP Actions and Florabella Collection . Charlie, my 4 year old, will be giving away bookmarks as her Valentine card this year. She is in VPK and they love to read and teach the kiddos all about the importance of reading. And since she loves to read books herself, it will be just perfect! Cards are totally customized just for you and come in all different sizes from 5x7 cards to mini wallet cards.

Little Paxton and Family

I just adore this family- Jon, Blessing and 6 month old Paxton! And I just love when my clients come back for additional sessions so I can see their little ones grow! I met Mr. Paxton 3 months ago for his 3 month old photos and this little guy has only gotten cuter! He is so sweet and full of smiles, and so are his parents. For this session, we met in De Leon Springs in Deland and it was the perfect day and the perfect setting! I'm already planning our next session! Thank you Jon, Blessing and especially you, Paxton!

Lightroom Presets

Jess Cumbie is a photographer who I have always admired and who has been a mentor to me as I began turning my love of photography into a business. Her work inspires me! And now she has created truly amazing presets for Lightroom that are fresh, fun, edgy and super creative. They can be used for any kind of sessions from newborns to seniors and family to children. I simply love them all but here are a few examples so you can see how awesome they are! And they are so easy to use- plug 'em in and go! You can find more information and examples on her preset website Tell I sent you:)

Using "Today's News"

Using "B&W Newspaper"

Using "Florida Oranges" (one of my personal favorties)

Using "Memory Lane"

Using "Yesterday's News"

The Bilz Family

This adorable family contacted me to take some beach photos of them while in Florida on vacation from Wisconson. Brrrr.... Thankfully they had amazing weather while they visited family, the beach and the theme parks. Take a peek at Dan & Barb and their sweet little girls.

Sierra's Senior Session

I had the honor of photographing one of my great friends Lisa's daughter, Sierra, a few weeks ago for her senior photos. Sierra is not only drop-dead goregous but super smart too! We met for her session in the Ormond Beach Memorial Gardens which never disapoints. It's such a beautiful location for any type of session. For a special senior package I put together, I included make-up by the amazing Stephanie Mazzeo. Sierra looked flawless and perfect for her senior photos...take a look for yourself:) And best wishes to Sierra who will be attending UCF in the fall- go knights!
