Campbell and Cullen – Newborn Twins Lake City, Fl Photographer

I must introduce these two sweet babies to you all! If you know their parents and family, you know that these two sweet babies are beyond blessed!

When their Mommy and Daddy decided to finally try to have a child, never in their wildest dreams did they imagine they would be carrying TWO beautiful babies…and the icing on the cake…one of each! The best of both worlds.

Their Mommy couldn’t have been a better baby oven for these two. haha Amazingly, they stayed in til full term at 38 weeks before being evicted on their scheduled date.

As I was there for their newborn session, I witnessed the most amazing love for these babies. Seeing their mother stare in amazement as she watched me with the babies and saying how she just couldn’t believe that I was holding HER babies. Her little miracles and how she didn’t imagine she could love a child so much, much less two of them at the same time. So very sweet!! I can’t wait to watch these babies grow and change.

Here are some of their favorite images from their Newborn session.

Baby Carsen – Birth Photography Lake City, Fl

I didn’t have a blog a year ago to be able to blog Baby Carsen’s birth. Today marks a year since that day so, I thought it would be fitting to share his birth session with you all now on his 1st Birthday.

This sweet boy came into a family full of love and couldn’t have better parents than his Mommy and Daddy! Oh and we can’t forget about a beautiful big sister who loved him from the moment she laid eyes on him!

In the words of his Mommy “One year ago today Carsen Ryan came into our lives and everything changed! This has been the SWEETEST, most lovable, most handsome Felly in the whole world! I couldn’t imagine a better baby boy nor a sweeter brother for his big sister.”

Thank you to the Staff of Shands Lake Shore Hospital for being so attentive and helpful during our time there. I love capturing these special moments in people’s lives and feel so blessed to have amazing people like Carsen’s family who trust me enough to allow me into such a private moment in their lives to capture true life as it happened.

Happy 1st Birthday sweet Baby Carsen!!

Monica’s Bridal Session – Lake City, Fl Wedding Photographer

Meet Monica. I have known Monica since she was in high school so, when she contacted me to photograph her wedding and bridal portraits, I was sooo excited!!!! I would have loved to do an e-session with her and her now hubby Jon before the wedding but, he was in a far away country working so, why not a beautiful bridal session where we can capture how radiant she is as a bride.

The day we were scheduled for her Bridal portraits, was one of the worst weather outlooks we could have and with this Florida weather, we were just keeping our fingers crossed that the weather God’s would bless us….. and they did!! It stopped raining right before our session was scheduled. We went to one of her family friends private property on Lake Montgomery and boy did it make the perfect setting. Enjoy some of Monica’s favorite photos below.

Candice & Brad Maternity – Lake City, FL Photographer

Meet Candice & Brad. These two were just the sweetest!! I could totally see the love between the two of them.

When they found out they were pregnant, it was a surprise and a gift from God. So, when they found out it was TWINS, they learned they were doubly blessed.

These two sweet babies are so loved already and are lucky to have this couple as their Mommy and Daddy and I can’t wait to meet them for their newborn portrait session!! (but, they can stay baking til hopefully early September).

Enjoy looking at some of their favorite images from their session below.
