kacie + josh's wedding | waldo's secret garden, vero beach

Kacie and Josh first met while she was bartending in downtown Jensen Beach. Josh, a commercial diver, was traveling a lot at the time but would always stop in for a drink and share stories with Kacie. She noted he was the shy one, but over time the two got to know one another a bit better, and went on their first real date. Time and distance kept them for developing a relationship, but as fate would have it, the two were brought back together a couple of years later and they picked up right where they left off. Josh proposed to Kacie within a year and the two share a beautiful little girl together named Luna.

They decided to get married at Waldo's Secret Garden in Vero Beach - which is a venue Kacie just simply fell in love with. Set against the brightly colored floral arch, the two exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony with close friends and family. Luna served as the flower girl - a special moment since Kacie was the flower girl in her parent's wedding. Kacie's best friend from high school was the officiant, and their puppy Bosley served as ring bearer. On a perfect March day, it was a beautiful celebration and I wish this family only the best for their future together. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

PS - a special thanks to my second shooter that day, Emily!

emerson's tea party | generational session

when my close girlfriend barb approached me about capturing her niece's 3 year old birthday party, i was - of, course - down. but, then she told me she wanted to make it a tea party theme with her sister, mom, grandma and emerson's sister. how could i resist that?!

it was a generational celebration where everyone got dressed in their finest "princess" gear for little emmie. with sparkling tiaras, pb&j's, cupcakes and lots of tea, the beautiful ladies cheers'ed to emerson turning 3 years old. she was ecstatic and loved dressing up as her favorite princess (elsa, duh!). emerson got to dance with grandma, sip on some sugary apple juice from her very own teacup and be adored and loved by all of the closest females in her life.

i imagine she will look back at these photos years from now and see just how special this little gathering was. the chance to have a moment with your mom and sister, aunt, grandma and great-grandma all in one place. what a 'happy' birthday, indeed.

natalie's maternity | vero beach

it is always special when i get to take photos of friends, but this was especially true with natalie and joey. we are both due with our first bambinos this spring (our due dates are 3 weeks apart!), so we have gone through this wonderful journey somewhat together.

these two are expecting a little girl in march, and will make such loving and awesome parents. i am thrilled for this family and what better way to express my excitement for them than with photos?! here are some favorites i took recently in our beautiful town.

spring break

one of my besties, a talented textile designer, works for the company - aerie - making really cool shiz. she has a knack for print and patterns and all things fashion-y. so when she emailed looking for some beach scene photos that she could work with for a design, i jumped. i sent over about a dozen different options and one of them was chosen to become a beautiful scarf for the spring line. with a little added rainbow effect, the backdrop of the scarf features a blue sky and ocean taken from an image i snapped while vacationing in the florida keys. i may order a dozen of these pretty little scarves! here is the photo inspiration and the final product. happy spring breakin'!
