Tabitha + Bill, Estero Wedding

Just a quick little sneak peek of Tabitha and Bill’s wedding last weekend!  They got married at the West Bay Club in Estero.  Tabitha was so creative with all the little details of her wedding, it truly made the day unique and memorable!  (I really loved her bouquet and her dress, gorgeous!)

Congratulations Tabitha and Bill!!! More to come soon! 🙂

Spencer, Newborn Photography

And the world welcomes Spencer!

We did all of Spencer’s newborn portraits here at my studio…what a gem!  She slept like a little angel while we swapped out tutus, hats, and bows. 🙂  Lily (big sister) is so proud of her baby sister and was generous with hugs and kisses for her.

Congratulations Jaime and Clay, love your two precious little girls!

Emmie, Maternity + Newborn Portraits

A big congratulations to Valerie and Greg on their new baby girl!

We roughed the humidity (and noseeums!) at Lighthouse Beach for some maternity portraits and wound up with a gorgeous sunset.  Then a couple months later we did Emmie’s newborn session at my studio.  What a perfect baby girl, such a great model already!  So precious!

Amy + Dave, Family Portraits

Here is a little series of portraits from my last three sessions with this lovely family.  We started out with a Christmas maternity session at Koreshan State Park.  A couple months later I got a few quick shots at the hospital after Baby Girl #2 was born!  A week after that, beautiful baby Elise came in for her portraits and then when she was two months we got the whole family together (or at least at my studio at the same time 🙂 ).

I absolutely love seeing families grow…just six years ago we were taking their engagement portraits and here they are now with two gorgeous girls.  Congratulations Amy and Dave!

Geoff + Sarah, surprise engagement

I’ve been dying to get these photos up here!  A couple weeks ago we photographed a surprise engagement proposal on Naples beach.  Geoff had called me months ago to let me know he and his girlfriend would be flying into town and he would be popping the question on the beach.  He was amazing with all the details and covered his tracks so well!  I had my doubts, I thought for sure Sarah would have some idea, but as you can see from the first photo, she was shocked!  My husband and I stood at a distance from them while Geoff got down on one knee and asked her the question.  All we could hear from Sarah was complete surprise…and finally after the shock wore off a bit, she said yes!  I don’t normally get to take engagement photos on the day it happens, but it was so fun!  Sarah’s mind must have been racing a mile a minute!  It was so sweet to see all Geoff’s hard work and detailed planning turn out beautifully…even the ring fit perfectly! 😉  Congratulations Geoff and Sarah and Happy Wedding Planning!
