• Welcome

    I'm so excited you made it to my blog! This is where we can truly get to know each other better. I'm a writer by nature and sometimes I think the best way to get to know someone is through their words. Words can connect, move, and inspire people. They are very similar to photographs in that way. So wander around and get to know me better! I hope I can inspire you - just as each one of my clients has inspired me.

Pyles Family Session | Ft. Pickens Photo Session | Pensacola Photographer

I went to Gulf Breeze High School with Catharine and so I was thrilled when she contacted me about taking some family portraits for her when they were visiting Pensacola. She even scouted out locations in Ft. Pickens until she knew just where she wanted to go. It really was a beautiful location and they coordinated their outfits perfectly!

It was a treat to catch up after so many years and I hope you love your new family photos as much as I do!

March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction | Tallahassee Event Photographer

It’s throw back Thursday! Each November the March of Dimes hosts the Signature Chefs Auction, which is a wonderful event and I’m so honored to be able to photograph it each year. The March of Dimes is one of those organizations that is very near and dear to my heart. If you follow me, you may know that both of my children were born prematurely – Knox was born at 31 weeks and Isla at 33 weeks.  They both spent over a month in the NICU at TMH, which any parent knows is a very trying time. Events such as the Signature Chefs Auction help raise money for education, advocacy, and research to benefit healthy babies. This past year, the Signature Chefs Auction raised over $100,000 for this cause and I’m so proud to be a part of something so wonderful. I have also decided to start donating $100 from each wedding collection booked to the March of Dimes at their Signature Chefs Auction! Every little bit helps babies like mine! Please consider making a donation to help save babies!

There’s a silent auction with items like those shown below from The Pampered Chef and Madison Social. There are all sorts of items in the auction such as spa and vacation packages, and products from Mary Kay and the Gem Collection.

Leading culinary talent in each city creates a collection of signature dishes in support of the March of Dimes.

Each year a family is chosen for the Fund the Mission segment of the evening. They tell their story and how the March of Dimes helped them, and then people make donations via the live auction to help other families.
