Melissa + Stephen | Elegant Garden Engagement On Film

I had the most amazing opportunity to photograph Stephen and Melissa and I have to say, they are two of the most in love people I’ve ever met and so willing to let me mold and shape them! They brought their precious puppy, Retta and she was so energetic and full of life! I say that because ya’ll know me and pups……cue squeal!! I even squealed over a little family of dachshunds we saw in the park! I got the opportunity to visit Bok Tower Gardens again and this time, we explored the on-property estate which was just gorgeous! I had been chomping at the bit to photograph that part of the park, haha! Well, it proved just as beautiful as I had hoped, made only more lovely by the couple and their pup who radiated such joy and love. Enjoy this gorgeous gallery!

Maternity has to be a secret favorite of mine. Much like weddings, there is a certain ethos about submitting your body, soul and heart to another person. It is beyond anything I’ve ever seen or known! Women are such powerful beings!

When I stopped accepting family and maternity portraits last year to focus on weddings and seniors, I knew I didn’t want to completely stop the offering so

Adventures In Film: Chapter 6 | Summer Memories

Good Morning, friends! Today's post is another installment of the Adventures in Film series! I recently uploaded a post with my new Canon Elan IIe + Portra 400 + TheFINDLab! Those portraits were DA BOMB. Like, I fell in love with film 100%. This roll was probably my first roll of Portra 400 out of the pack. It was also in the Olympus auto camera from one of the first Adventures In Film posts! I think the quality of Kodak's finest grain film really shows up here, even in a camera that could be seen as....a really bad camera. LOL. I don't mean to hurt your feelings, camera. *pats the Olympus*

Adventures In Film: Chapter 5 | After Irma

Today I'm reporting from day 3 or 4 of dark, rainy, stormy, WINDY weather. I've been barricaded inside for the past few days and while there are moments that I love the wind and rain (like when I'm falling asleep and waking up), there comes a point when I need, no NEEEEEDDDDD some sunshine and fresh air! I think I have 12 inch long fingernails, protruding eyeballs and an ever growing humpback......

Happy Friday, folks! A while back I shot the dreamiest newborn session in Jacksonville. He happens to be our nephew! I may or may not be biased. :) A few days before the session, I acquired another film camera that I was excited to use. The camera was my trusty Canon EOS Elan IIe. I've also been working my way through a box of Portra 400 so I threw a roll of that in the Elan.

Adventures In Film: Chapter 4 | Summer Romance On Film

For the past few months, I've been delving into the art of film photography in an attempt to be well read on the two forms of photography. I'd like to eventually offer hybrid film and digital services (yay!). Here are the Intro, Chapter 1, Chapter 2, and Chapter 3 of my film adventures, as well as the original digital gallery of this session! Lately, I've been bringing my film camera along on photoshoots so I can practice. It is SO. MUCH. FUN. There's something really satisfying about hearing the shutter click and the film slide to the next frame. And then there's the waiting....oh, how I love it. I think a new romance is starting....between film and I. Don't worry, digital. I'm not letting you go anytime soon. <3
