For Amy and Tony's Tampa wedding at Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore Wedding, it was all about the celebration! These two have been together for awhile, and it was time to make it official, united their family and celebrating their love. 

The color theme was tiffany blue and white!  It was colorful & carefree, with whimsical touches of greenery and the ever important sparkle. Amy's bouquet was so pretty and Tony's boutonniere was really cool too!  

The ladies had a great time during prep (so did the guys). There was lots of laughter & joking around.  And it was all smiles when Amy walked down the aisle to Tony- his smile was brighter than the sun and their son DJ had one to match. 

After a few photos, it was time for the party! The couple danced onto the dance floor and barely left for the rest of the night.  

We adored the decor- the floral arrangements were amazing! And the sweetheart table was so regal! The "throne" chairs were rented from Classic Events Entertainment. They were a great touch for the couple and really made a statement. The floral arrangement was also a beautiful touch. It was really a focal point in the wedding design! 

It was great working with Amy & Tony- the newlyweds are great people and I really enjoyed my time with them!

Romantic, Glamorous, Luxury Sarasota Wedding at The Ringling Cà d'Zan http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/10/the-ringling Romantic, Glamorous, Luxury Sarasota Wedding at The Ringling Cà d'Zan

Beth and Jimmy's wedding was held at my favorite venue of all time- The Ringling in Sarasota. It was a HUGE celebration and I spent the entire day in awe of not only their love but the complete and utter gorgeousness of the day! It was nearly impossible to narrow down the images- we were able to capture so many great shots.  

Beth was not only radiant but completely overtaken by the joy of the day. She wasn't in the least bit stressed and had an amazing support system during prep time. Having such an awesome vendor team made all the difference- not a detail was neglected and it was a wonderful experience for everyone! Big shout out to Nicholle Leonard Design Studio for making it happen!

When Jimmy laid eyes on his stunning bride in her fitted lace gown and heavenly cathedral length veil you could almost hear the breath leaving his lungs. During portraits, he would guide her so tenderly with the placement of his hand on her back. It was incredibly chivalrous and romantic. 

The reception at The Ringling's Cà d'Zan was fantastic (and gorgeous). We took extra note of all of the romantic candlelight - the gold and blue pillars were a beautiful touch that incorporated their color theme perfectly. The calla lilies were a timeless choice as well.  The Bay Kings Band was epic (as usual) and the party was a blast. It was everything you could want in a celebration! Touching, festive and entertaining. 

As it's been said, this couple & wedding gave me ALL.THE.FEELS. I wish Beth and Jimmy all the joy and happiness in the world. And thank them, from the bottom of my heart, for including me.  Love you two so much!

Romantic, Intimate Marco Island Destination Wedding | Destination Wedding Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/9/marco-island-destination-wedding Romantic, Intimate Marco Island Destination Wedding | Destination Wedding Photographer

I still find myself daydreaming about Margaret and Allie's destination wedding in Marco Island. It was an incredibly intimate, touching day that celebrated the special love this couple has for each other. 

Every year I hope to shoot a handful of destination weddings, and for this wedding day did not disappoint!  I adored their first touch - it was such a special moment and the next best thing to a first look (at least in my option)! 

We loved Allie's look of absolute joyful emotion when he saw Margaret walking down the aisle. And when her maid of honor stepped in during the ceremony to blot her eyes, I exhaled an "awe"- because, seriously, what would you do without your girls?!

They leaped into each other's arms when it was time to seal the nuptials with a kiss. They made it count! 

The newly minted Mr & Mrs casually strolled the grounds of  The Rookery At Marco Golf Club & JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort hand and hand. Soaking in the occasion. Stopping along the way for LOTS of kisses. 

Can I just say. Allie's attire was awesome- it was one of my favorite groom looks this year! His pale grey linen suit had just a hint of pastel lavender, which was amazing for the beachside wedding. His look was perfect for the coastal, elegant look they wanted- he managed to be quite dapper, yet casual. And he seemed to be more comfortable in a suit than most of my grooms. Ha! 

The reception was intimate and romantic. The couple stayed by each others side all night and as the night concluded, Allie carried his new bride into the night, in a shower of sparklers. 

Also, I have to say I send light, love, and prayers to Marco Island in the wake of Hurricane Irma. Our poor state of Florida took a beating and many people still have a long recovery ahead of them. The aftermath for many is heartbreaking and it is my biggest hope for the communities that suffered to feel whole again, as quickly as possible!

Charming, Enchanting Bakers Ranch Wedding, Jaimee and Matt | Tampa Area Wedding Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/9/bakers-ranch-jaimee-and-matt  Charming, Enchanting Bakers Ranch Wedding, Jaimee and Matt | Tampa Area Wedding Photographer

"When I saw you I fell in love and you smiled because you knew." How incredible is this quote?! This beautiful sentiment was the basis for Jaimee & Matt's Bakers Ranch wedding. 

I met Jaimee when I photographed her sister's wedding back in 2015! You may also recognize the lovebirds from an earlier blog post abou their engagement session! It was so wonderful to be able to spend time with this family again. 

Their venue is located in Parrish, FL- near Bradenton. "Our air-conditioned Ranch House is a Tudor–Style Building, inspired by 16th century Northern European architecture that gently blends with picturesque majestic oak trees and 3 very unique ceremony sites.  Bakers Ranch is the elegant, romantic canvas that is completely yours! You can create any once-in-a-lifetime event from a modern day Gone With the Wind fairy tale to an intimate ceremony with elegant simplicity and anything in between."

It's such a charming location and right up my alley!  And this wedding was soft, feminine and romantic. 

I loved Jaimee's walk down the aisle. She was so overcome with emotion to see Matt. My heart swelled during that moment- because seriously, how lucky and blessed am I do witness this moment?!  

The reception was elegant, yet casual. And I loved watching them dance with each other. They're so in love. 

Their cake was amazing! Seriously, the intricate gold lace detail was heavenly and the glitter base was oh so fancy. I spent a moment or two fawning over it!  

A big thank you Jaimee, Matt & family for including me for your big day!  So much love to you two!

Rustic Romance at Lakeside Ranch Resort | Central Florida Wedding Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/8/lakeside-ranch-resort Alicia and Chris' Lakeside Ranch wedding was what my dreams are made of. I could move there and die happy. Ha! The working horse ranch has sprawling lake views and an endless amount of greenery. It's open air reception venue and picturesque ceremony sites took my breath away. The day was pure Florida romance! Seriously, one of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is seeing so many stunning venues - and how my couples transform them into something uniquely their own. 

I happen to adore Alicia and Chris as much as I do Lakeside Ranch, so it was a perfect day for me! Alicia had a wonderful group of maids and they had a great time prepping for the big day. The light was heavenly in the bridal suite (which is actually in a massive house on-site that overlooks one of the many lakes).

Alicia was so excited to get down the aisle to Chris, and the look on her face when she did was priceless! They had such sweet vows and were just giddy when it was time to take newlywed portraits. 

The decor was rustic elegance with accents of soft pink. The farm tables were the perfect touch for their family style dining. I loved the massive hay bails with their monogram. It was such a cute touch! The all white cake had crystal and rosette embellishments- adding just a touch of glam to the design. 

It was a great joy and honor to photograph these meant-to-be soulmates. My heart is filled with gratitude and I wish them all the happiness in the world!

Rustic, Country Vintage Chic Wishing Well Barn Wedding | Tampa Wedding Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/7/wishing-well-barn Krystle and Parker's Wedding was rustic, country vintage chic with a hint of glam. Yep, that's a lot of descriptors, but they pulled the day off so beautifully! The Wishing Well Barn is a beautiful cattle ranch and wedding venue in Plant City  (which also happens to be adjacent to blueberry farm)!

All of the decor they selected was perfect for Wishing Well- they had lots of pretty pink & white florals, paired with burlap and lace. It was country to a tee, with rustic vintage touches from the window seating chart and old whiskey barrel tables to the lanterns and select seating options. 

Of course, Krystle's lace wedding gown was stunning! She rocked the fit and flare silhouette with her cowboy boots! And the rhinestone embellishment was just the glam touch she wanted. It sparkled in the sunlight and highlighted her beautiful brown eyes!

Krystle's entrance with grand- she rode into the wedding ceremony on a horse named Oreo! It was a magical, princess fairytale moment. My heart did a little leap in my throat as I watched Parker watching her. It was a powerful moment! 

It was a joy watching these two celebrate together. They're a perfect pair and the day was everything they wished for. I am so blessed to have been their photographer (and now friend)!

Playful Downtown Tampa Engagement Session | Tampa Wedding Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/7/playful-downtown-tampa-engagement-session-tampa-wedding-photographer Playful Downtown Tampa Engagement Session | Tampa Wedding Photographer

When an engagement session includes champagne and a Rolls Royce, I know it's going to be fun. And Shannon and Christian's e-session was just that! Playful, magical and full of laughter.

The couple selected the Straz Center in downtown Tampa for their location. It has some great surrounding landscape and gave us waterfront, foliage, and architectural interest options. In other words, it was a winning choice! Variety is the spice of life, right?! 

The couple opted for two looks- something formal (as you can see from that killer RR) and something casual. 

I loved the special scrapbook they brought with them as a prop- it's full of photos and memories that the two lovebirds have shared during the course of their relationship.  Christian actually used this scrapbook during his proposal, so it was THE most fitting prop they could use! The books and Harry Potter wands were an adorable touch too! 

It was so much fun to photography these two sweethearts! If you're still searching for the perfect engagement session photographer + location- give me a call or shoot me an email. Would love to chat with you!  

xoxo & blue skies!

Family Maternity Photos | Tampa Maternity + Family Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/7/family-maternity-photos-tampa-maternity-family-photographer First, there was Mama Bear & Papa Bear... then there was Brother Bear. And here comes baby bear.   I loved photographing Christina's family-centric maternity session. She has an adorable family that is about to get even more precious! 

For moments and memories that are special to you- picking a location that feels welcoming and comfortable is key! Christina did just that.  Their family home was a great setting for this session. We snapped a few shots in their home, as well as their front yard and surrounding neighborhood.

Christina opted for several family style photos in their coordinating "bear" shirts, as well as a few solo and mother son photos in 'dressier' attire. She was so laid back and comfortable in front of the camera. It was a joy to capture this incredibly special, magical time for her! 

Christina's son, Wesley is so excited to meet his new sibling.

Joyfully Unique Earthscapes Garden Room Wedding | Palm Harbor Wedding Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/7/joyfully-unique-earthscapes-garden-room-wedding Rachel and Dane held their outdoor Florida wedding at Earthscapes Garden Room- an adorable venue located in Palm Harbor. I would venture to say more people don't even know it exists, because Earthscapes is a nursery that specializes in landscape design/outdoor spaces, and just so happens to also have an awesome space that can accommodate up to 250 people! It is a fantastic venue for the nature lover. It feels like a backyard oasis (without the complications that can sometimes come from hosting a wedding at a private residence). A perfect mix of casual and unique! 

Rachel and Dane are such a sweet couple and their wedding reflected their carefree love. They each love so deeply and passionately for each other and know how to laugh at life's adventures.  They are truly the best friends that know they've found something really special in one another.  

Rachel's beautiful wedding gown (the illusion neckline gown and embroidery to heavenly) paired amazingly well with Dane's classic gray suit. They both radiated so much joy.  And the casual, romantic garden theme was dreamy and magical! They opted for no bridal party, which really kept the focus on the couple during the ceremony and reception. 

I can't forget to mention that their vendor team for the wedding day was awesome!

Stylish, Elegant The Regent Wedding | Tampa Wedding Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/6/stylish-elegant-the-regent-wedding-tampa-wedding-photographer Trina and Sean are such a sweet couple. Trina was truly one of the kindest brides I've ever had the privilege to work with. The couple held their wedding day at the Regent, a venue just outside of Tampa. The theme for the day was elegant glamor- with spring inspired flowers, pretty silver details and plenty of sparkle! 

Trina has great style- do you see those shoes?! Ah! So amazing.   Paired with her fitted wedding gown- she was a true goddess (and her groom made sure she knew it too!). 

The ceremony took place inside- the altar was defined with a beautiful alter made of sheer fabric, hanging mirrored glass that sparkled in the light and lush floral arrangements of roses, calla lily, and hydrangea. 

The reception was a blast! The dance floor was packed all night and there was SO much laughter! Sean's toast did cause a few tears, but we promise they were happy! The overwhelming emotion and love was so strong. Truly a joy-filled day with magical moments experienced by all in attendance. 

We loved working with Trina & Sean and wish them all the best!

Enchanting Elopement Style Wedding in Rome, Italy | Destination Wedding Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/6/enchanting-elopement-style-wedding-in-rome-italy-destination-wedding-photographer Few things make my heart happier than weddings and travel- so marrying (no put intended) the two sets my heart aflame. So, when Jackie + Dan asked me to travel to Italy with them for their Newlywed session, I couldn't say no! I was fortunate enough to capture their wedding in Tampa (you may have seen the sneak peek on FB- they had a hilarious first look moment that included Jackie wearing a dinosaur costume) as well. It was a blast to extend the celebration overseas and in such a gorgeous dream destination. 

Newlywed shoots are a great way to capture the after wedding glow on a much less restricted timeline (and an excuse to keep your amazing wedding day fashion on)! I love that we took our time to explore the nooks and crannies of Italy's amazingly magical architecture to find locations that were so stunning! This shoot was also a great way for Jackie & Dan to commemorate their first adventure as husband and wife!

It was such an honor to travel with this amazing couple and capture such a special time in their life. I have known Jackie for years and she has always been near and dear to my heart. Seeing how happy Dan makes her brings joy to my heart

Next on the bucket list is Greece! Who's down?

Timeless University Club Wedding | Tampa Wedding Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/5/timeless-wedding Timeless University Club Wedding | Tampa Wedding Photographer 

Lindsay & Taylor's Tampa wedding was as timeless as timeless gets. And we're not talking about just the color combination of black, white and glitzy gold! These two are so graceful, poised and classy. Their winter wedding was a reflection of their fun-loving spirit with all the classic details and atmosphere that they love. 

They held their ceremony at Sacred Heart Catholic Church.  Lindsay glided down the aisle to meet Taylor in her  fitted satin down with high neck and plunging back with pearl embellishments. In a cathedral length veil, so was a vision of timeless beauty (she reminded us of Audrey Hepburn). 

Following the ceremony, everyone made their was to The University Club of Tampa. This prestigious venue has incredible ambiance and stellar service. They also know how to put on a heck of a reception. The environment was so cozy and warm (since the wedding was hosted in December, the club was decorated for the Christmas holiday). The food was also incredible- guested were "wined and dined" and then cut loose on the dance floor! 

Lindsay and her mom are very close- and seeing them interact on the wedding day was so sweet. She was so excited for her daughter and soaked in every moment! And can we talk about aging gracefully? Lindsay's mother is gorgeous, and she looks just like her! 

We loved working with Lindsay & Taylor and wish them a lifetime of good times ahead!

Romantic Opulent Grecian Inspired Wedding | Tampa Wedding Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/5/romantic-opulent-grecian-inspired-wedding Romantic Opulent Grecian Inspired Wedding | Tampa Wedding Photographer

I love shooting at Kapok Special Events Center. It is a gorgeous venue and made the perfect backdrop for Danitza and Mike's opulent Grecian inspired wedding. It was romantic beyond words and left me in awe! 

I had the joy of previously photographing the bride's sister, Cybell's wedding day as well.  It was so wonderful to spend another magical day with this fantastic family.

The ladies were stunning in their plum gowns and the men were dapper in their black tuxes. Everyone was dressed to the nines and over the moon excited to watch Danitza & Mike tie the knot!  Especially Danitza's Father. They have such a special, close relationship and you could see the pride and affection in his eyes all day. 

The color combination was spectacular- plums, oranges, corals, red and soft ivory. The entire day's decor was truly AMAZING! Loved the sheer fabric draping for the ceremony and the lush floral arrangements atop each of the reception tables. The pretty purple-hued linen on the table was a great match the Kapok's marble floors and high ceilings. And the natural light is perfection! 

Danitza was a radiant goddess all day- just oozing sensual beauty. And Mike couldn't tear his eyes off of her. Witnessing their connection and love was an honor and capturing it was a dream! Wish these two all the best the world has to offer.

Classy Yacht Club Wedding | Tampa Wedding Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/5/classy-yacht-club-wedding Classy Yacht Club Wedding | Tampa Wedding Photographer

Nothing says classy more than a formal black and white color theme. Between this ultra chic traditional selection,  Catholic church ceremony and The Club at Treasure Island reception, Amanda & Kevin's wedding day was beautifully classic in every way! 

Amanda incorporated her something blue by wearing gorgeous sapphire blue satin shoes with rhinestone detail. While Amanda was getting ready, she really took the time to soak in the moment and enjoy the prep! After her professional hair + makeup, she enjoyed nibbles and champagne. Loved the modern "Mrs" glass she sipped her bubbly from! 

The groomsmen also sported a hint of blue - both the vests and tie were the perfect shade of blue to compliment the black and white theme. The simple Calla Lily bouquets bridesmaids carried were beautiful with the cocktail length mixed style black dresses. 

The couple's reception was upscale, without being stuffy. The Club at Treasure Island is a great venue and we love the surrounding scenery. The boats are a fun backdrop and give the entire day a bit of a magical, vacation vibe!

A little side note- Amanda and I actually went to college together at the University of Tampa. Her wedding allowed us to reconnect and it was a wonderful honor to witness her forever happiness!

Elegant and Chic Powel Crosley Estate Wedding | Sarasota Wedding Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/4/elegant-and-chic-powell-crosley-estate-wedding-sarasota-wedding-photographer Let me prepare you now- this blog post contains TONS of photos. It was SO hard to narrow down favorites from Sarah & Steven's Powel Crosley Estate wedding, so you're getting a huge selection. They had so many incredible details and memorable moments. Plus, this Sarasota wedding venue is one of my all-time-favorites! 

Their Fall wedding has all the makings of a magazine worthy event. Between Sarah's stunning wedding gown and the rich red/burgundy tones used at the reception, it was chic, ultra romantic and gloriously elegant. The pair also knows how to work a camera, and I don't think they had a single "bad" photo. Hence the over-share for this post! As if that weren't enough, Sarah and Steven's dog, Angel, is absolutely adorable and quite photogenic too! 

The new husband and wife were glowing all day- and after the first look, there was no holding back the emotion. If they weren't laughing, they were crying happy tears.  When Sarah walked down the aisle with her mom, stopping a moment to pay respects to her late father (they reserved a special seat for him in the front row, with his favorite ball cap), there wasn't a dry in the room (myself included!).  The said their heartfelt vows, sealed their union with a kiss and then partied into the wee hours. It was a magical night filled with amazing energy. And such an honor to witness and partake.

Enchanted Wedding at the Historic Obici House | Virginia Wedding Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/4/enchanted-wedding-at-the-historic-obici-house-virginia-wedding-photographer Enchanted Wedding at the Historic Obici House | Virginia Wedding Photographer

Katherine & Nick's wedding at Historic Obici House in Virgina was an enchanting, intimate occasion that couldn't have been more fit for this couple. These two kept things uncomplicated but didn't skimp on the important details. A gorgeous location, beautiful decor, timeless vows and lots of hearty laughter. 

I went to college with Nick at the University of Tampa. I met Katherine when she attended a small college reunion with some dear friends. I instantly LOVED her and we became fast friends. So of course, I was elated to capture their wedding day! 

Katherine and Nick decided to not have a bridal party. Which is pretty rare these days. We have to say, it was actually really refreshing too! There was so much focus on them and it meant we had extra time for photos. Which I'll always be happy about! Their location really suited this choice and the no-frills couple. 

They integrated a subtle wine theme into their reception - which we thought was really fun! The wine glass favors were adorable and the gold wine bottles were great vases for the pretty purple blooms! The large windows at the Obici House let is the prettiest light and when sunset fell- the ambiance was enchanting!

Can I take a moment to say that Harley was one of the sweetest little wedding pups pals I've ever laid eyes on.  Seriously adorable. It makes me happy when couples involve their pets- and there is no doubt that Harley is an extension of Katherine + Nick's family unit!

Sassy Sweet Engagement Session at University of Tampa | Tampa Wedding Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/4/sassy-sweet-engagement-session-at-university-of-tampa-tampa-wedding-photographer Sassy Sweet Engagement Session at University of Tampa | Tampa Wedding Photographer

 

If you've been on my blog before, you already know that I adore engagement sessions. If you haven't, well, here is your heads up! I love working with couples before the big day. It helps us get to know each other- I quickly discover which couples are camera shy, and who has a natural, effervescent, photogenic personality. Stefani is definitely the latter. 

 

Seriously, how CUTE is she?! This goddess was SO comfortable in front of the camera!  She rocked that red tulle skirt like no other and accessorized so beautifully with her deep red lip and bright blue nail polish!Ross is content to let his future bride shine. 

 

Our backdrop was the University of Tampa. Also another favorite of mine- the have so much pretty greenery and great architecture. It helps me "mix up" the landscape of the photos without actually having to go anywhere new! It's also really convenient for many of my couples and somehow feels like home, even if you aren't a Tampa native. 

 

I had a great time capturing this special time in Stefani & Ross' relationship, and I can't wait for their wedding on May 20th!

Latrusa and James' Wedding at The Regent | Tampa Wedding Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/3/latrusa-and-james  Latrusa & James' Wedding at The Regent | Tampa Wedding Photographer

Trudy & James are such a sweet couple. These two love, love. And this day was all about romance for them! They picked The Regent, which I have quite a fondness for! It's a great venue with a beautiful outdoor landscape. The patios happen to my favorite! The smooth, glossy marble is so regal! Trudy has an air about her that fit in perfectly with the venue! 

They selected gray, silver and white as their anchor colors with pops of red in the florals. We don't see this color palette too often, so it was a refreshing twist!  We also loved their attire- Trudy's classic satin mermaid gown and retro blusher veil looked great on her! The men were decked out in three-piece gray suits with deep red/maroon ties, bowties and vests. They all looked so handsome! And the jr. groomsmen + ring bearer were a hoot! So much personality for such tiny people. Ha! 

It was a pleasure to work with this entire group of people- they were so welcoming and warm. It was a great day and I wish these two sweet souls so much love and happiness in their future.

Rustic, Equestrian Inspired Wedding The Lange Farm http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/3/rustic-equestrian-inspired-wedding-the-lange-farm Rustic, Equestrian Inspired Wedding The Lange Farm

Anyone who knows me, knows I'm a fan of horses. Because of this adoration, The Lange Farm (which is not just a wedding venue, but a working horse farm) is one of my favorite venues! I've been blessed to shoot two fantastic wedding at this gorgeous venue recently.  The first was Becky & Blair, which I blogged about a couple weeks ago (you can see that post here). Second, was THIS wedding for Heather & Cody. Being a wedding photographer means that I'll often shoot at the same Tampa wedding venue multiple times. The familiarity is great, but it also adds an element of challenge that gets me really excited (finding new and exciting nuances each time). 

I love how differently each of these couple's wedding turned out. The venue has several outdoor ceremony locations and two indoor reception venues- the variety makes it incredible for shoot! Heather and Cody opted for a homey, rustic feel.  They couple has been together for years (and has an adorable son), and really wanted a wedding that felt welcoming, cozy and fun. I think they were quite successful! 

One of my favorite parts of the day was watching Heather with the horse! Like me, she has an affection for this majestic animal, which really shows! From her bridal portraits to the horse drawn ceremony entrance + exit, she focused on enhancing the Farm's gorgeous equestrian landscape, instead of ignoring it.

Congrats, you two sweet souls. I'm grateful for you!

Sweet Mama To Be Maternity Session | Tampa Maternity Photographer http://www.risinglotusphotography.com/blog/2017/3/maternity-session Sweet Mama To Be Maternity Session | Tampa Maternity Photographer 

This maternity session with Danielle made my heart happy. The glow of a mama-to-be is a joy to photograph. There is so much promise and hope that comes with bringing a new life to the world. It is a precious gift to spend time with the strong, capable women that are growing tiny humans. They are embracing the challenge of bringing life into this world and growing them to become people. It's an incredible honor to spend time in their presence.  

Danielle session was excellent!  We had two landscapes for the shoot- a lazy olde Florida feel that exuded an effortless, beautiful vibe. It paired so well with her gorgeous sapphire blue dress. The second location was the beach! Danielle's light and airy lace dress was stunning! The rocks were a great contrast and the breeze created a subtle movement that translated perfectly in images.  

Danielle was a radiant Mama to be with the most adorable belly- it was perfectly round and she looked like such a goodness- she carried it so beautifully!  

This sweet mama excitedly welcomed her bundle of late last year.
