I’ve started using the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens in Gainesville as my outdoor studio! It really saves on location scouting because everything that I love is at the gardens.  Water scenes, flowers with lots of color, whimsical gardens, and so much more. Of course I have no problem going to other locations if my clients have a favorite spot – but lately – the majority of my sessions have been here and its been awesome!   Here is a recent maternity session I photographed at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens – the couple is so lovely and are expecting their first child.  Mom-t0-be even brought along her family for a few special images before baby is born.

We captured Sara’s U.F. graduation session at a place she has spent so much time at in the last 4 years – the Architecture Building.  I love this place! We were also lucky that a there was an amazing field of yellow wildflowers around the U.F. bat house – now if only someone can figure out how to make them blue and orange!

The Wildflower Sessions are by far my most popular sessions.  The field is just stunning and the images taken will surely be a family keepsake. Play the video below to see a sample of the type of images captured at the wildflower field.  Thank you to the McAfee Family for allowing me to share it!
