        Montana – UCHS Class of 2017 – Lake Butler Starke, FL Senior Session

        Small towns can have some of the best locations for portraits…. the tiny towns of Starke and Lake Butler are no exceptions!!

        Meet Montana, Proud Union County High School Class of 2017 Graduate! When her Mom and I started talking about what kind of pictures and locations Montana wanted for her Senior Portraits, it was mentioned that she had to have a couple pictures in her cheer uniform since it’s been a big part of her High School career (winning many awards btw! woot!)

        Now knowing that, I knew we had to stay close to that area for pictures so, one day I came to Lake Butler to scout out locations as I wasn’t familiar with the area. Dare I say, it did not disappoint! I saw some cute places in Lake Butler and then kept driving til I hit Starke where I learned they have a super cute downtown area (that I have managed to drive around on my many trips to St Augustine over the years)! I just HAD to take her there!! As you’ll see from the first two outfits in these images, lots of great color and textures….Add in an absolutely stunning girl and there you have it! 😉

        You’ll also see a few images of Montana with a picture frame with her Grandfather’s image… This was all her idea and such a sweet one! She wanted to make sure he was included in this special time in her life. When we started talking about her grandpa, who she lost at a very young age, it was quite emotional! But, she pulled it together and thought all of the happy memories and about how he’s still watching over her even if he can’t be here to see her graduate in person. I just love that she wanted to make sure he was not forgotten. <3

        We shot from afternoon to past dark getting many different looks and she pulled off every look! Please enjoy some of her favorite shots from her session.

        Maddie K – CHS Class of 2017 – St Augustine Fl Senior Session

        Meet Maddie, another awesome Class of 2017, Columbia High School graduate! Smart, Funny and oh so adorable! We had a fun time wandering the streets of St. Augustine, eating good food and stopping along the way to take photos when I’d see a spot I thought would look great in a portrait. Some adventures along the way and then, there was that time I had her lay in the grass in her white jeans only to discover the ground was wet! Oops! 

        To finish the session, we raced against the sunset to Vilano Beach to take a family portrait of Maddie with her Mom and sister Mallory to commemorate this special time before Maddie grows up completely. 

        I can’t believe in less than a month all of the beautiful seniors I’ve been fortunate to capture this past year will all be walking across that stage to accept what they have worked so hard for over the last 13 years! I’ve still got a few more to share and can’t wait for you to see them!:)In the meantime, Check out her fave images from her session. How cute is she!?

        Delano & Morgan – Engagement Session – Kanapaha Botanical Gardens – Univeristy of Fl Gainesville, Fl Photographer

        I am so excited to be sharing another one of my favorite recent engagement sessions!! Meet Delano & Morgan. 

        I’ve known Morgan for quite some time and was so excited when she contacted me to discuss photographing their engagement and upcoming Wedding in September. I knew any man that Morgan chose to spend the rest of her life with was going to be super special and when I met him and watched the two of them together, I knew those thoughts couldn’t be any more true!

        Delano was a perfect gentleman. He opened the doors for her, was so attentive and sweet and it was just so obvious how head over heels in love they both are! I loved being able to capture their excitement as we wandered through Kanapaha and then on to their Alma Mater,  the beautiful University of Florida campus. 

        5 more months until they say I do and I can’t wait! <3

        Please enjoy some of their favorite images from their session.

        Mark & Lauren – Engagement Session – Oleno State Park, High Springs, Fl Photographer

        Meet Mark & Lauren. These two….what can I say but…Oh my goodness!! They are absolutely as adorable as they come!! The love and excitement just oozed from them as we talked about how they met and about their upcoming nuptials in the mountains…. in a vineyard. eek! Can’t you just picture it? What a beautiful bride Lauren is going to be!! I’m kind of sad that I won’t be there to capture all of that as well. haha 

        For their engagement session, we explored Oleno State Park in High Springs and then stopped at Camp Kalaqua before heading to downtown High Springs where we finished off the evening.

        It was so easy to fall in love with these two as they are (as you can tell from the pictures) some of the happiest people! The fact that they are ohhh so in love was definitely a given and truly made it SO easy to photograph them!

        Mark & Lauren, Thank you for the honor of capturing this special time for you both and I am so excited to see what the future has in store for you both. Here’s to many many years of happiness & love. <3

        Miss CHS 2017 – Columbia High School – Lake City, FL Event Photographer

        If you missed your chance at being there to witness this year’s Miss CHS pageant, how about the next best thing?…PICTURES! 

        What a special group of girls that competed in this annual pageant supporting Columbia High Shool! Each of them were absolutely gorgeous! I think you’ll agree when you go through the images.

        The Miss CHS pageant has been a staple for Columbia High for many years and Miss CHS 2016, Faith Johnson, did a wonderful presentation with pictures of many of the past Miss CHS title holders and even had several in attendance who got to talk about their experiences. Speaking of Faith, she did a phenomenal job hosting the pageant and eek! at all of her gorgeous gowns she changed into throughout the evening!!

        You probably know who won what but, just in case you don’t, I’ll tell you in order of how they were announced:

        Audience choice – Mikayla Collins

        Miss Congeniality – Lindsey Starling

        1st Runner Up – Emily Harrington

        and In the end, there can only be one name called as Miss CHS 2017 and that was Mikayla Collins!! Congrats Mikayla on a job well (and beautifully) done!! (wait til you see the shock on her face when it was announced! hehe)

        Congratulations to each of the girls!! Just getting up on that stage makes you all winners in my book! <3 Thank you for having me there to capture this beautiful event!
