Adorable twins | Sarasota Children's photographer

Facebook.... my husband hates it and thinks it's the demise of society... however I don't share the same view.  For me it's been a GREAT way to keep up with friends and reconnect with old friends from my past. Case in point, my friend Ryland from high school.  She lives over on the East coast and was coming over to the West coast for the holiday weekend.  After  reconnecting on Facebook, she asked me to photograph her family and I was quite honored.  I believe we've had this in the works since November!  So... see, Facebook can be a good thing!  LOL!

How about these adorable twins???  We met at Selby Gardens down in Sarasota.  It was a gorgeous day but just a tad bit too hot.... welcome summer!

Here are a few shots from today!  Enjoy!

Sweet Miss K | Tampa children's photographer

How adorable is she???


SPECIAL for TEACHER apprecaition week

The first week in May is teacher appreciation week.  If you already didn't know I have a soft spot for teachers as I was once one (crossing fingers not to have to go back).  I taught learning disabled children grades K-5 for 10 years and then moved on to become an ESE Specialist working with exceptional student education children within the Alternative school for 3 more years before I left to have my first child.   Don't get me wrong on the crossing my fingers part.  If I could go back and TEACH without all the crap, I would.  So instead I take pictures of children and that satisfies my "working with children" itch!

I am offering a special to all the teachers out there who work their bottoms off, who dedicate themselves to OUR children and never treat themselves! 

So here is the skinny....

An hour session in the Tampa area and 8 (8x10 and smaller) prints a ($470 value) for $300.
$150 down to hold spot.  To be used by end of June.  I will take 8% of each session fee and make a donation to Donors Choose

If you are reading this and are not a teacher...  I will announce a summer special later!

And to have a picture with a post... this shot is from a teacher session last year.  This is Amy and her two kids.  Amy and I went to college together.

The gorgeous couple | Tampa photographer

I'm so thrilled to show off this gorgeous couple ~ Samantha and Tony!!!  Samantha and I have been BFF for 17 years now.   I couldn't wait to get my camera on her!  She is a photographer's dream being that she models part time!!! You can see her here and here (that's all I could find at the moment).  She also is co-owner of L'Bella Style Lounge and she does some real estate on the side.  And check out her adorable husband who is the owner of Mirabella Motors.

So this shoot has been in the making since for over 8 months.  Last August we got rained out and then I began my busy season for the holidays, so she was going to have to wait!  LOL! I believe it was worth it!

We started at the Waterside Marriott and then moved over to Ybor City. 

Here are some images from the shoot.

PINKBERRY is finally open! | Tampa event photographer

So I know I have been talking a lot about PINKBERRY... well the day finally came and they had the VIP grand opening party this past Thursday night on the patio of Maggianos right across from the store.  I was asked to photograph the event and even though I do not do events I could not say no to my dear friend Jackie.    The party was a hit and so much fun.  They served unlimited Pinkberry to all the guests and you could visit the topping bar and pick whatever you wanted to complete the Pinkberry experience.  They also served a Pinkberry alcohol concoction that was so super delicious. The store swirled free Pinkberry with toppings from 6-10.  I'd say both were a HUGE success.  When I left I was in a Pinkberry coma!  I'm totally hooked!!!  And YES!!! there is a HUGE difference in taste from those other yogurt stores here in South Tampa!  Make sure you give it a try... especially the Lychee (which is seasonal)  ... you won't be disappointed.
