New York City Back in the Dress Session :: Arik & Nicole

I had the pleasure of traveling to New York City to photograph Nicole and Arik for their back in the wedding dress portrait session. We shot at the InterContinental, Central Park, The Nomad, The Roxy, and Grand Central. Although it was pretty cold, we lucked out with the perfect day of blue skies and sunny. It was truly an honor to photograph these two for their destination portrait session and thought I would share a few of my favorites from their session.  

Commercial Photography :: Great Explorations Longo's Cove

Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing Longo's Cove at Great Explorations Children's Museum for Luckey Climbers, LLC. Luckey Climber's are three dimensional sculptures that define public spaces, encourage physical activity, and offer the sort of imaginative play experience that is important for intellectual development in children. Made of bent plywood or rotational molded plastic, suspended by steel pipes and hand woven cable netting, Luckey Climber's are visually elegant works of art, part jungle gym, and once alive, become what Thomas Luckey called "fountains of children." I was also thrilled to death when Even Longoria shared my photos on his Instagram and gave me a shout out:

Saint Petersburg FL Headshot Photography :: Shelly & Coral

Saint Petersburg Headshot Photography I recently had the pleasure of creating new headshots for the President and Vice President / founders of Empowered to Change. Empowered to Change Inc. is the vision of Co-Founders Coral Nichols and Michele Snyder. Coral Nichols has worked with pre-trial intervention individuals who are dealing with addiction and have come into the court system as a result of compliance issues. She and Co-Founder Michele “Shelly” Snyder have a passion for women’s issues and began their journey with women in mind, however throughout their journey they have seen that the need for a safe place to work out issues is not limited to women, but men as well who are in need of guidance and a safe secure environment while working toward sobriety. Then there is the additional fallout from addiction to consider, which is homelessness and human trafficking, both have been on the rise exponentially these past years. Addiction is not limited to those who are addicted to d[...]

Newport Rhode Island Engagement Sesssion :: Lexie + Matt

Lexie & Matt will be getting married later this Fall in Sarasota at the Powel Crosley Estate. I recently had the wonderful opportunity to do their engagement session in Newport, Rhode Island and was lucky to get to meet the rest of their family - Cash, their handsome young pup! The City of Newport, RI certainly made for some killer backdrops along with the Castle Hill Inn Lighthouse, which is where Matt asked for Lexie's hand in marriage. It was a beautiful weekend with a high of 72 and low of 58.  If you have not yet been to Newport, I highly recommend it! It's such a cute little town with plenty of good food and things to do.
