The Jefferson Family

Its never easy getting eleven people in coordinating outfits and camera ready, but the Jefferson family made it look effortless!  I love how the colors match the perfect gulf sunset we got out at the beach and the tide receded enough to get everyone out to the sandbar!  I love creating beach portraits in this quiet, serene location!

The Williams Family

Its been a couple of years since I last photographed the Williams family, but when they saw the beach portrait special, they called their extended family and everyone booked sessions!  We had absolutely perfect weather, even though little Miss T got chilly during the sunrise session!

I love working on the beaches near Tallahassee and using our unique landscape to create beach portraits that are equally unique!  Our next beach special will be in October 2021, or you can always just add a travel fee to a regular session and we will head out to the beach!

Ducks and Bunnies 2020

Ducks and Bunnies 2020

This was the tenth year we have done the Ducks & Bunnis mini-sessions  at the studio and I have to say it was a year like no other.  With concerns over Covid-19, many sessions cancelled and this was the lowest number of sessions we have ever done, BUT each and every one of the sessions we did was AWESOME!  We had so much fun creating Easter portraits in the studio gardens.  Its such a joy to watch the children interact with the animals!  To all the families who kept their sessions and helped us make it through the Covid shut down, I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Award Winning Tallahassee Photography

COVID19 is NO fun.  We miss our friends, our routines, our sense of normal.  I desperately miss being in the studio, playing with all the kiddos, snuggling all the babies and spending time with all my clients.  I am so blessed to be a part of a very large network of professional photographers and through this we have stayed connected online to give each other support and friendship.  One of the most importrant of these groups is my home guild- the Tallahassee Professional Photographers Guild.  

This group is where I first put myself out there to network with other professional photographers.  13 years later, this group is some of my closest friends on the planet and they are my “co-workers” in a sense.  We celebrate each others successes and we help comfort in times of failure.  They have my back and I have theirs through thick and thin, so connecting tonight online instead of in person for our monthly meeting was just what I needed.

I was thrilled that we could still hold our monthly image competition and that my peers chose two of my images as the best in their categories. 

Super proud mama moment when the image of my babies was chosen as the winner for Portrait of a Group!!  Then I also won the special challenge that had to be GOLD themed.  I am always honored when my fellow professional photographers choose my image as the best, it just means SO much!
