This adorable family was visiting Florida this fall to celebrate Binita’s birthday and I was lucky enough to meet them for some sweet family memories! Florida gave us some beautiful morning light and Jaiden’s eyes and smile just melted my Mama heart!

I occasionally get asked what it means when I say I am a lifestyle photographer so I thought I could explain what it means to me and why I love it so much!

Essentially (and adapted from Wikipedia) lifestyle photography is about capturing people in real-life situations and events in an artistic way. The key for me here, is real-life.

anniversary, engagements, family, weddings

ahhh! if you’ve been following me for anytime in the last year you know about my friend, Crystina, of The Messy Painter. I got to capture a Mom and Me with her and Wylder at The Don Cesar earlier this year!! Wylder is just 7 weeks older than Ryan and it has been so fun to watch the boys the last year and she has kept me sane through all of it!

The next mom and me is a special one for me!! My long time friend, Carly, joined me for a mom and me session at the Rose Garden!! Carly is an incredible mom (and just as amazing friend) so I felt really lucky to get to capture these sweet moments of her and her kids for mother’s day! Maybe because I’m a mom now too, but there’s something incredibly special about these sessions to me now!!

The Shaw family came to visit Florida and enjoy the beach! They were smart to come in the fall as it wasn’t quite as hot or humid as it was this summer. I was so happy to meet this family and fulfill my dream of being a Flytographer. What’s better than capturing people on vacation? Except, of course, if I was on vacation with you!

I worked with Hollee at Lucy activewear when it was still headquartered in portland, Oregon until it’s move to the bay in 2010. I love the Lucy extended family and am so thankful hollee and I stayed in touch over the years. When she was planning a visit to see family in florida she reached out for photos and we had so much fun! fun fact: this crew did family photos on the beach many years ago and it was fun to recreate a couple of their timeless memories.

I had so much fun capturing the ernst family at fort de soto beach! stephanie and aj are the kindest, sweetest and most adoring parents you have ever met and their babe, eden, is a courageous and determined one. they all braved one of the cold florida days and some painful stickers for some off-roading and they didn’t laugh at me (to my face) when i literally split my jeans crawling around with eden. capturing babies is a sport, you guys!
