tia+walter: the ceremony

The forecast was rain, however, we all held our breath, hoping  the weather person was wrong. Twenty minutes before the ceremony was to begin, the sky opened up and released a week’s full of rain. Ms. Jesse, being the professional coordinator that she is, didn’t miss a beat. Plan B was in full effect! The staff at The Emerald Grande,  as well as the rest of us made the necessary adjustments, and God made His entrance…a magical blessing ensued. This was one of the loveliest occasions that I have ever attended! Congratulations  Walter and Tia! You two are definitely special. I knew it  from the first day we met and it was reinforced during the engagement session..thank you for allowing me to be a part of this day and the entire process..Special thanks to the entire staff at The Emerald Grande #EGWeddings
Here are a few previews of a glorious day

rob hills: husband+father+entreprenuer+author

Rob Hills is one of those immensely talent people. He is a computer expert, web master, and entrepreneur. He is a loving husband, father and he also finds time to mentor young men. He’s a dedicated member of his local church, where he is  the media director. Rob is  the owner of HBCC, Hills Bros Computer Consultants.  And to top all of that he is often the muscle for his wife and mother’s event planning business. All of this as he is currently writing a self-help / awareness book. (As you can see, he is an expert time-manager…whew!) For an upcoming project, we decided to capture the many facets of his life. Here is a peek of our session. 2013-12-28_0001.jpg

a day at chautauqua

We took trip up to the Chautauqua winery in Defuniak Springs, FL for a day trip and wine tasting. It’s a small, quaint place off of interstate 10. they specialize in muscadine wine. The staff is friendly and the shop has many souvenirs. If you ever find yourself traveling on I-10 westbound, stop in and say hello.

felix + carmen + kameron

When Felix and Carmen contacted me  about photographing their maternity session, I was honored. To capture something so special as their first pregnancy was truly a privilege. Good thing we didn’t’ wait too long. Kameron was born the next morning after the last photo was taken. Thanks for letting me be a part of this magical time.

Dani D.

There are not many times when I meet another person with my same initials, or  same nick name “Danny D”, but  I had the pleasure of working with NHS senior Danielle D. or “Dani D”.  Danielle is a great model!  She is a  natural, if you will!  We had a great mini-session and captured some great images! She is a track, volleyball, and basketball player and a stellar student! When I arrived for the session, she was doing homework!  She immediately shifted  into model mode and created some great images!
