Families

The Wade family is by far my favorite family in Lakeland, hands down. So when the opportunity arose for me to photograph their newest member, I gladly accepted.

For this child she prayed.

Families

If I write about this couple I will cry. Not the cute kind either, the red-eyes-can’t-stop-ugly cry. So I will let the images speak for themselves as a true artist would. But I must clarify two things: one, she prayed fervently for this child, I’m a witness to this truth. And two, it was a […]

The McMahan’s | Mulberry, FL Family Session

Families

When we moved to Mulberry about 5 years ago, people thought we were nuts. After all, this town couldn’t offer us anything. But the Lord placed us here and we decided to make the most of it. We were generous when others stole from us, we were grateful when we felt like complaining, we came […]

Entre Cisnes y Sonrisas

Personal

I marvel at the friendships that have lasted through the test of time (and distance) in my life. Tatiana is one of them. I have photographed this family before, last year to be exact. Actually, last April, I saw her in Puerto Rico and confided in her the suspicion that I may be pregnant. She […]

Brandon, FL Lifestyle Family Session | The Morey’s | Florida + Destination Fine Art Photographer

Families

The first thing I noticed when meeting the Morey’s was that they have a framed print of the verse 1 John 4:19, “We love because He first loved us”. This verse has served to remind me, time and time again, that the mere existence of love is a direct result of God’s love for us. […]

I adore this family right here. The Keith’s have weathered many storms, including the loss of their firstborn at a few days old. But despite the loss and grief they carry everyday, they have 3 beautiful daughters with adventurous and spunky personalities that radiate the love of God. Rory, their youngest, is their recent miracle! […]

I met the McKiddy family while they vacationed in Clearwater. I had a great conversation with Amy about motherhood and when I asked her what was her favorite thing about being Cassius mom, she told me that her favorite thing was witnessing Cassius learn and experience things for the first time.
