Nostalgia - Senior Portraits Apollo Beach, Fl

My daughter and I have an obsession for all things vintage. We have been envisioning a 50's style photo shoot for ages as her senior portraits. I really felt like this style needed to be done in some kind of outdoor location.Imagine my utter ecstatic-ness when I came across this amazing place that looked like a postcard right out of the past. The dress is a vintage daydress I found on Etsy. The little basket purse was found at a vintage shoppe in downtown Salt Lake City. I hope you enjoy this little trip down memory lane...

Baby Love

Amidst all these beautiful newborn babies, I thought I'd share with you one of my babies. I never thought I'd be a "dog lady" but this little girl has stolen my heart. Hope you all have a safe extended holiday weekend!

Bruce Cote - Land O' Lakes Newborn Photographer

What a beautiful baby boy. Little Bruce was such an alert baby - wide awake for the entire session. We were able to sneak a few pictures of his brief sleeping periods. His mommy was such a trooper working very hard to keep him content. I can only hope that she is pleased with the portraits and feels that the effort was worth the end result. Thank you so much Mommy M for giving me the honor of capturing these first few days of his life.

Brycen James - Sarasota, Florida Newborn Photographer

I had such a blast working with Brycen, his mommy, and daddy. This newborn had the most flawless skin I have ever seen on a newborn baby. Must be in the genes because his mother was absolutely stunning as well. Here are a few snapshots of the session...
