Ashley & Louis | Lifestyle Session in Sarasota

Ashley & Louis | Lifestyle Session in Sarasota

I have had the pleasure of knowing Ashley for over six years now. One of the wonderful aspects of social media (back then, blogging) is the opportunity to meet kindred spirits. She is one of the rare, beautiful souls I have had the pleasure of getting to know in real life as well. When she contacted me about doing a session in their home, I was thrilled. They have such a sweet, tender love and knowing their hearts makes it even more special for me. Unbeknownst to me, Ashley & Louis had just found out they were expecting a baby that very morning! When she told me a week later, I almost cried. I love the challenge of infusing meaning and depth in everything I create, but this session goes beyond what I could have devised - it feels like providence to me. I'm so thankful for these two, and for Ashley's sweet friendship over the years.

Caleb & Kimberly | Central Florida Garden Engagement

It is always so special to photograph a couple in a place that is meaningful to them. Caleb proposed to Kimberly in this beautiful garden a little over a month ago. While he was in town visiting, they went out to explore the lovely gardens at Bok Tower. Little did she know that he had a surprise picnic set up on a pretty green and a proposal coming her way! That was perfect on his part, right? It was such a beautiful place. I could have explored the lush, blooming paths for hours on end. Working with these two in this breathtaking location was like a breath of fresh air. After a long and cold winter, warm weather and their sweet love was a welcome change! Caleb and Kimberly met while in college at the University of Florida. (Side note: GO GATORS!) He was on the football team and she was a cheerleader. How sweet is that? Now they are planning an intimate destination wedding. I have no doubt it will be just as beautiful as their love. I'm so thankful I had the pleasure of capturing part of their story. As you can see for yourself in the following images, they are an adorable couple very much in love.
