Gentry & Christian's E-Session ~ Orlando, FL

I had so much fun with Gentry and Christian. I drove over to Orlando to meet with them and we went to a nearby nature trail that they like to go for walks on. Then they did the unexpected... they decided to climb a tree! On our way to our next destination they introduced me to the best treat ever - a Cherry Gelati. Mmm Mmm good!! Thank you! I so enjoyed spending the afternoon with them and am very excited about their wedding on March 31st. Congratulations!

I wanted to give you the background behind Christian's shirt that he is wearing in all of the images. (You can see it in the image above where there is a heart and it says "Because Love..." on the back of Christian's shirt and in the last image you can see the front of his shirt which has Africa with a heart on top of it.) He wears this shirt with such passion because it is from the Invisible Children. I encourage you to check out this amazing cause and see if it is something that tugs at your heart strings. You can go to http://www.invisiblechildren.com/ to check out video footage and stories about the displaced children in Africa and how we can make a difference. There are so many opportunities to help, big and small. Please take a moment to check out this website. Thank you!

Mosaic Church, Tarpon Springs, FL

This past Saturday was the official kick-off for the local Mosaic Church. I was asked to document this event and was blessed to be a part of this moving night. Over the past several months I have had the opportunity to gain new friends in Ryan and Andrea Kramer, the founders of Mosaic Church. They have such a vision for this new church and are so giving and loving. If you are looking for a church to call home, definitely check out Mosaicchurch.cc.

02.10.07 ~ Amy & Eric, Palm Harbor, FL

Amy and Eric had a beautiful day. They were married at the Rheba Sutton White Chapel in Palm Harbor, FL. The chapel is beautiful and needs very little to make it perfect. Amy had Flowers by Jenny decorate very simple with a single rose on the end of each aisle. Amy's bouquet was solid red roses and gorgeous! Amy just glowed all day and Eric looked quite handsome all decked out. The best part of the day was watching the love that not only Amy and Eric shared, but the love that extended throughout their friends and family. It was an emotional day and quite obvious that God has put Amy and Eric together.

Amy & Eric - Thank you so much for including me in your wedding day. You have been such a blessing in my life and I am so glad to know you not only as clients, but also as friends. May God bless you and your marriage!

Sarah Ryann - three weeks young

Sarah is the sweetest baby girl! She was wide-eyed and taking it all in for most of the shoot. Danielle, Sarah's mom, was visiting Florida to share new baby Sarah with her family. On Monday they headed back home to Daddy in California. Both Danielle and her husband Jeff are in the Military. Thank you for serving our country! I'm so glad I had the opportunity to meet you both! Thanks for allowing me to capture those special moments between you and precious Sarah. I hope you had a safe trip home!
