Senior Portraits at Frenchman’s Forest in Palm Beach Garden, Florida
On April 25th, I had the pleasure of capturing Madison’s senior portraits at Frenchman’s Forest in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Madison had her heart set on having a whimsical session in the woods. But, as we all know, the woods can be hard to come by in Florida. After searching and searching she came across a gem in the middle of Palm Beach Gardens. I had never even heard of the park. But she found the spot she was searching for! And, boy! Was it worth the search!
Our session started in this perfect location with the sun peeking through the surrounding trees. Madison stood out so beautifully against this lush backdrop with her gorgeous hair and her lovely smile. She wore a deep purple dress that blended so well with the location. And she added her cowgirl boots to the mix to give a touch of her style.
I first met Madison many years ago at our church when she was just a little one! I remember her sweet little face in children’s choir when I was helping to lead the group. It is hard to believe that she is graduating High School already! As we were walking during her session she told me about her goals and plans. I am so proud of the strong, driven, and smart, young lady she has become!
The light was amazing!! These are some of my favorite shots from the whole session! Frenchman’s Forest was such a great location choice!

On Sunday, March 12th, 2017, Andrew and I had the pleasure of capturing Kirsten and Joseph’s elegant Worth Avenue engagement shoot. We began our session in the Westward part of Worth Avenue and ended our session at the Palm Beach Clock Tower.
Kirsten and Joseph, it was truly our pleasure capturing your engagement photos! Andrew and I are so excited to be a part of your wedding day in November!
First, we started one street over from Worth Avenue where there is a gorgeous building with amazing detail! Kirsten, you are STUNNING!!Then a few shots in front of the Saks Fifth Avenue ivy wall. Afterward, we captured one of my favorite sets from their engagement session! The following photo isn’t generally a style I dabble in often, but this day I was feeling something different. I ended up being pretty happy with the result.
Then we captured a few classic photos with the iconic Palm Beach Clock Tower.

On Wednesday, January 11th, I had the pleasure of capturing Chloe’s Palm Beach senior portraits. Joy and laughter filled this session. We strolled the street of Worth Avenue together capturing lifestyle photos along the way.
When Chloe and her mom, Kelly, first reached out to me I was quite flattered. Kelly told me that they had been following my work on Instagram for over a year and Chloe had dreamt of her Senior portrait session in Palm Beach with me! However, I felt even more flattered when she told me she lives in North Carolina and would be making the trip to Florida primarily for this! Needless to say, I was very excited to meet and work with them both.
Just as I thought, we instantly connected. Right away I felt like I had known them for years! I love how this passion of mine that I get to call my “job” allows me to meet new friends all over the country!
Chloe was such a pleasure to work with and her radiant smile filled every frame with so much joy. The session took place on colorful Palm Beach and Chloe’s Lilly Pulitzer outfits fit the scene perfectly. This shoot was one of my favorite portrait shoots to date and you’re about to see why!
Chloe and Kelly, thank you so much for choosing me to capture such an important season of life! It was a complete honor working with you both! I look forward to working with you again! I hope you enjoy your portraits!
Lilly Pulitzer’s “You Gotta Regatta” is my favorite patterns and when I saw Chloe’s dress, I knew the perfect spot!

It’s that time of year! Time to snuggle up close with the one you love, share some cheer and have some Christmas portraits taken! These Palm Beach maternity Christmas portraits were special ones because they were for our dear friends Frank and Brooke who have a very precious Christmas gift on its way! As you may remember, back in early November I shared their pregnancy announcement photos. And for this shoot, they are excited to announce the gender of their baby!
Last weekend, they had a Christmas gender reveal party. The theme was “Baby it’s cold outside”! How cute is that!? Brooke and Frank wanted to be surprised along with everyone else at the party so in the weeks leading up to the party Brooke asked if I would be the person to find out, keep the secret and find something Christmas related for them to open at the party that would reveal the gender of their baby. I was so honored to be the first know and couldn’t wait to find the perfect gift! Once I received the envelope from the doctor stating the gender, I immediately went out looking for a Christmas ornament!
After searching at a few places, I found the perfect one. “There is no greater gift than the love of a son”, it read. That’s right, they are having a BOY! When they opened it at the party and read it, their faces were priceless. It was a perfect moment.
The following day, we captured a few joyful Christmas maternity portraits in Palm Beach, Florida. Here are a few of our favorites! Enjoy!
Holding the ornament that revealed the gender of their baby! Aren’t they just the cutest couple?!

A Romantic Wedding Anniversary at Riverbend Park in Jupiter, Florida
On Tuesday, October 18th, 2016 I had the pleasure of capturing Alexis and John’s one-year wedding anniversary portraits. Exactly one year ago from this day they promised forever. So in honor of their vows they decided to get back into their wedding attire and have a memorable first anniversary styled portrait shoot!
The location of this anniversary session was the breathtaking Riverbend Park in Jupiter, Florida. In this dreamy park, you will find a terrain unlike any other in South Florida. This park is filled with flowing rivers, unique trees, and Spanish moss!! When the sun sets in this park it is nothing short of magical. The most glorious golden light was reflecting onto wheat-like fields creating an amazing scene.
When Alexis first contacted me to capture their anniversary portraits I was beyond thrilled! And when I heard what she had in mind I was over the moon! We immediately began chatting about ideas and as a result, we came up with the most dreamy and romantic wedding anniversary shoot ever!
John and I have known each other since we were in grade school! We grew up going to the same church and were a part of the same youth group. When John started bringing Alexis to church I remember thinking how cute they were together! Fast forward to today, they have been together for four years and I am so happy for them!
Alexis & John, thank you so much for allowing me the pleasure of capturing your anniversary portraits! It was such an honor to capture this special time in your life. Here’s to many more beautiful years to come!

College Senior Beach Portraits in Jupiter, Florida
On Sunday, April 3rd, I had the pleasure of capturing Kacey and Lauren’s Jupiter senior portraits. Our shoot began at a coastal park called, DuBois Park. This breathtaking, sea-side park overlooks the Jupiter lighthouse and is framed by the Jupiter inlet and the Loxahatchee River. After we captured some casual shots at the park we then worked our way towards Jupiter beach for some more formal photos.
Kacey and Lauren are best friends. The kind of friends that always do everything together. They work together, live together, attend college together and now in a few short weeks, they will be graduating from Palm Beach Atlantic University together! So naturally they had to have their senior portraits done together!
I met Lauren and Kacey years ago when we all worked at Chick-fil-A together! When I had this dynamic duo as a part of my shift I knew it would be a good one! I have missed working with them so much!
Lauren and Kacey, thank you so much for allowing me the pleasure of capturing your beautiful friendship during this special season of your lives! I am so proud of you both! May God continue to richly bless both of your lives!

A Joyful Anniversary at the Morikami Museum and Garden in Delray Beach, Florida
On Sunday, March 13th, I had the pleasure of capturing Jennifer and Austin’s 2nd dating anniversary portraits at the incredible Morikami Museum and Japanese Garden in Delray Beach, Florida. This sweet session is full of captivating scenery, dreamy pastel colors, and an adorable couple. The breathtaking evergreen terrain was the perfect backdrop for this darling photo-shoot. Strolling along the serene Japanese garden with this lovely couple was the perfect way to spend my Sunday morning.
As we roamed along the peaceful garden, we chatted and they told their love story. Jennifer and Austin met at Palm Beach Atlantic University and began dating in 2014. Their relationship has blossomed over the past two years and they just celebrated their second anniversary on March 1st!
Sweet smiles, joyful laughs, and compassionate glances filled the frame of every photograph. This session was such a stunning one. Jennifer and Austin, thank you so much for choosing Andrew and I to capture your anniversary photos! It was such a pleasure working with you both! I hope to work with you again in the future! 🙂
Sweet genuine smiles.Giggles and laughs were so easy to come by with this couple! I loved that! One of my favorites. Love her peaceful gaze and his soft embrace. So sweet! Beautiful light! I love all the little waterfalls and rivers at the Morikami Museum! More sweet smiles and giggles. This little spot (I say little because there was literally only a few rocks for us to stand on) was so peaceful and magical. With a waterfall in the background and light pouring in thru the trees, it was truly enchanted. One of my favorites! I might have gotten a little too excited when I saw this spot!! Amazing spot right!?Love those sweet moments. Those sweet smiles. They finished their stunning shoot by ROCKING an amazing dip!
A Lovely Tea Party Bridal Shower at the Serenity Garden Tea House in West Palm Beach, Florida
On Sunday, March 6th, I had the pleasure of capturing and attending Carrie’s tea party bridal shower, as her wedding photographer but primarily as her friend. The tea party was held at the Serenity Tea House in West Palm Beach, FL. This quaint and adorable tea house was the perfect place for her intimate bridal shower. Their assortment of tea and delectable treats had us all in love with this charming tea house. My favorites were, the pineapple coconut black tea and the warm, fresh out of the oven, melt in your mouth, scones!!
Carrie and I have been friends since we were toddlers. We were both home-schooled and went to the same church growing up along with most of our friends that attended the bridal shower. It was so nice catching up with some of my life-long friends and celebrating the lovely bride-to-be! You may remember her from one of my recent engagement shoots, the Cinderella-inspired fairytale engagement shoot. One of my favorite shoots to date! Carrie, thank you for letting me be a part of this special day. So excited for your wedding!
