I inherited my love of photography from my Mom. I have thousands of negatives that she'd like me to go through and convert to digital. I bought my first DSLR in 2006, a 6mp Minolta 5D. I was a graphic design student and I wanted to take photos for my projects rather than have to search the internet for what I was looking for. I graduated valedictorian from Full Sail University in Orlando, FL with a degree in Digital Arts & Design. I've shot food, portraits, animals, kids, boudoir, weddings. I want every shoot to be as unique as possible. I don't like to be in a rut. I always want to produce something original for my clients.

Independence Day Babies

Cousins Jackson & Rowen had their first photo shoot together today.  It is also a first 4th of July for both of them.  This photo session deserved a nostalgic look.
