Little Sarah – Gainesville wildflower photographer

I love to watch my little photography clients grow – from newborn and up.  I photographed little Sarah’s newborn session and now to see her a little over a year later in the wildflower field was such a thrill.  She is such a beauty as is her loving mother.  Sarah has three older brothers and she is the first little girl in her family.  Mom wanted a special session with just her little girl and already there is a very special bond between these two!


Fairy Tale Prom – Gainesville Fla. senior photographer

When the subject is your very own daughter – I had to  think outside the box when it came to photographing her senior prom photographs.    She looked like a fairy princess and her date even wore a kilt.  I was the proud Mama and so enjoyed taking these photographs as they head for their senior prom at Gainesville H.S.  I’ve had my eye on this little garden area and was thrilled to use it for the very first time for these pictures – it truly was like a fairytale!


Diana + Chad | Gainesville maternity photographer

I was thrilled that Diana & Chad contacted me for a maternity session during the wildflower season. I’ve always wanted to bring my couch to this field and when Diana sent me her inspiration board – I knew this was going to be a very special session.  Such a exciting time in any couples life – the anticipation of their first child.  These images will most probably be the last few of this couple before their family is forever changed by the addition of one.

Oliver Extended Family – Gainesville Florida family photographer

The Oliver Family converged onto Gainesville from three different States during Gatornationals week. It was the first time that Grandpa from Cali was meeting his grandson – who is now almost 2! It was a lovely morning and I was so thrilled to meet this fun southern family and their “Irish twins!’

Kappa Delta – University of Florida graduation photographer

Congratulations to the ladies of Kappa Delta at the University of Florida! We had a super soaking of a rainy session but you would never know with how bright these smiles are!  Good luck to you all as you venture into the next phase of your life! Gainesville will miss you!
