My husband and I recently bought our first home in St. Petersburg and we are loving it!!! I have always been so inspired by St. Petersburg and the beautiful history.

Ashley is such a beautiful soul inside and out and it truly speaks in her work. I hope you love these images and keep your an eye out for our most recent collaboration, coming soon.

Family Photographer | St. Petersburg, FL

A couple of years ago I met a beautiful woman named, Gloria. I met Gloria through my husband's grandmother, Funny Granny at a meeting for the Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary. Gloria has been dedicating her time to the Salvation Army for quite some time and drives all the way from Dade City to do so. The women of the Women's Auxiliary are truly extraordinary women and I was so excited when Gloria asked me to come out to Dade City to photograph her family. Funny Granny told me before our shoot that Gloria had the most adorable grandkids, but I wasn't prepared for this! How cute are these girls??? They seriously just melted my heart.

Baby Gender Reveal Party | Tampa Family Photographer

This was one of the sweetest and most exciting moments I have gotten to capture. The love and excitement at Nicole and Clay's gender reveal party was truly contagious. The second Nicole popped the balloon the amount of joy was overwhelming, it brought tears to my eyes. Nicole and Clay have such a beautiful family and I was so grateful that I was able to capture such a sweet moment in their life.  It's a girl!!!

New Lightroom and Photoshop Workshops at Florida Museum of Photographic Arts

Great news! I have three new photography workshops I'll be teaching this month and throughout October at the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts in downtown Tampa. Two of the workshops have been created based off the two most popular topics concerning Lightroom, organization and editing. My 'Organizing Your Images In Lightroom' workshop will get you familiar with the incredible organizational capabilities of Lightroom, which are not the easiest to grasp on your own. My 'How To Edit Your Images In Lightroom' workshop will teach you how to use the tools in front of you to enhance your photography and speed up your work flow while creating a cohesive editing style. Lastly, my third workshop "Get Your Images On The Web' is for Photoshop and Lightroom users and we will cover all of the common issues with sharing your images on the web and how to prevent them from happening.
