trash the dress…with paint|sarasota trash the dress photography

Maria contacted me months ago.. from the Middle East!  :-)  She and hubby Jim are in the military and Maria was one on-top-of-it bride, planning everything from over there with precision.  The only thing she couldn’t plan for was the weather!  When both of them arrived in the U.S., they were stuck in their respective…

Dorothy, I want to thank you for being such an amazing photographer! I enjoyed my paint trash the dress session and look forward to doing my boudoir with you in the future. You are by far the best photographer I have ever encountered, and made Jim and I feel so comfortable. I would recommend you to anyone and I talk about you like I know you!!! I love your photos and am amazed at the beautiful photography and work of art you create!

lauren|sarasota high school senior portraits

Lauren is a senior this year at Sarasota Military Academy, along with Payton & Carly…  She’s also quite the Georgia peach, if I do say so myself!  Being a HUGE fan of the beach, there was only one place Lauren wanted her photos taken.  But, bucking the usual Siesta, I opted for something different altogether and…

logan rolla | sarasota newborn session

Meet Logan Rolla!  Born January 16th and weighing in at a healthy 9lbs. 7oz.  We met his beautiful momma Aimee when I did her maternity session back in November.  Since the little man was only 8 days old, I thought it would be the perfect time for his newborn session.  Nice, sleepy baby, right?  Wrong!…

You are so, so welcome! I love how these photos turned out, little Logan is adorable and makes some really cute faces :) I’m happy that I was able to do this for you and I look forward to the next time!!

Once again, you’ve made us look terrific! This shoot, although not the peaceful snoozefest that we had hoped for, turned out better than I could have imagined. Thank you so much for sharing your time and talent with our growing family. Beautiful! With love and thanks, Aimee

Thank you so much for your kind and generous words! They actually brought tears to my own eyes – this is why I’m so passionate about what I do. It was a pleasure and a honor to provide Aimee and Rollie with these photos of Logan and I know they will be treasured for a lifetime. Thank you again, you just made my day! :)

Thank you! You have captured such emotion and beauty with these pictures. Aimee is a beautiful woman and she will be a wonderful Mom. Logan is going to have a “fun” and “creative” childhood. With me living in Rochester NY, your pictures and fb allow me some connection until I can get there next month. I share some of this with you, to remind you how important your work is and affirm the magic of your pictures and how it connected me with them. Thank you again, from Aimee’s Aunt Lene and as I joke with the family, Logan’s GREAT Aunt Lene…… enjoy your day!
