She was amazing for the entire process of my engagement photoshoot. She met with my fiancé and wanted to make the whole experience so personal and comfortable for us. She blew me away when I received my photos back, they were more than what I could have ever imagined. She is truly good at what she does and I 100% recommend her.

What to expect working with me

Unlike other photographers, my policy is to never book more than one session per day. Also, I don’t place a time limit on your photoshoot so I can provide intentional, uninterrupted time to get to know you and the story you want to tell.

Florida Signature Experiences

Each Signature Experience is designed and customized to the smallest detail so that we reflect your story as accurately and authentically as possible.

We'll go through several consultation calls together, so I can get to know your style, personality, and vision. Whether you’re needing family photos, vacation photos, individual portraits, or planning a surprise proposal — this is a collaborative, all-inclusive experience that begins when you inquire and truly lasts a lifetime.

The luxury, stress-free experience

After you reach out, we’ll schedule a call to get to know each other more. While text messages are instantaneous, I prefer jumping on a quick, low-pressure call to truly get to know you. I’ll ask questions about the story you want to tell, and we’ll get the wheels turning on some ideas on how to capture it.


complimentary consultation call

Even before you step into my studio, I’ll help you change the way you see yourself by showing you how much value you bring to this world.

In our consultations leading up to your session, we will discuss more concrete ideas, show you some props and client wardrobe from my studio we can incorporate into your session, talk about anyone you want to include in your photoshoot, and anything else you’d like to discuss.

We will also have a separate design and wardrobe consultation call to make sure you feel confident and fully prepared for your big day!


the journey officially begins

It's important to me that I give every client my full attention and creativity. That's why I only book one session per day so that we don't feel rushed and we have time to bring your vision to life. My guarantee to you is that this experience will be nothing but enjoyable, relaxing, and fun.


one session per day

Once your portraits are ready, we’ll set up an ordering session. Think of this more like a celebration — the kids will stay home, we’ll have time to thoroughly look through photos, have some refreshments, and make an event out of it! Every women's portrait session is followed immediately by an ordering session.
Whether you choose stunning wall portraits that you can walk by every day, a folio box you can share with loved ones when they visit, or an album that sits on your table for easy browsing, we can collaborate on which products you want so you get the most out of your investment. Plus, you will receive matching digital versions of your portraits.

Women's portraits

Whether we visit one of the many beautiful beaches Florida has to offer, or local parks, I'll create portraits that bring even the most heartfelt details of your story to life. My goal? To empower you to see yourself as the beautiful strong Woman you are. Not only for you,
 but the  people who love you most.

family portraits

You already know how important your family legacy is, but maybe you have a hard time getting in front of the camera or you're not used to including yourself after years of giving so much to others. But believe me when I tell you that 20 years from now, you'll be so thankful you did. I know I do.
 Do you know who will be even more thankful?
Your family.
Whether we decide on a location-based shoot or a studio shoot, your family photography session has one main goal: to capture your families story.

Florida Family Vacation

Vacationing Sanibel Island or Captiva Island? Now is your chance to document your trip! In my years of experience as a South West Florida photographer, I can honestly say these are two of the most beautiful beaches Florida has to offer.

Although the Islands share certain qualities — immaculate beaches, a relaxing atmosphere, and breathtaking Gulf Coast Sunsets — they each have their own uniqueness, too. I'll take you on to all the best spots so you can experience the best of both Islands and preserve your vacation memories at the same time!

surprise proposals

Engagements and surprise proposals are truly a once-in-a-lifetime moment, especially when on vacation in Florida, and the beginning of your life together. To capture that priceless look on your partner's face when they realize what's happening, you will want to have a professional by your side who is experienced in capturing surprise proposals.

I'll handle all the details and arrangements so that when the day finally arrives, you feel confident to get down on one knee.

Children portraits

My specialties include portraits of Children. Whether we visit the beautiful beaches of the New Jersey shore, local parks, flower fields, or my studio (really, the state is our studio!), I'll create portraits that bring even the most subtle details of  your little one’s story to life. My goal? Make sure your child can see from the pictures you hang on the wall, just how loved they are. And you, will have the gift of a memory that will last a lifetime.
