Welcome to Life Stories...

Welcome to My Life's Story! Mine is made up of so many wonderful people-purposfully woven together! Everything we do is with and for each other and I am so glad that you have taken the time to stop by- so grab your favorite cup of coffee and Enjoy!

What I love most: my family, my friends, my son's giggles when he thinks he is getting away with something... great conversation, anything with a good title, bold coffee, anyone with a zest for life, exciting and fresh ideas, anything crafty, getting my hands dirty, dancing in the rain and weddings! (all weddings!)

I am happiest: when I can share what I see through a lens. Just as there are no two people alike, neither are views on life. I strive to uniquely photograph any event or person so their style can easily be seen.

"Life Happens... Picture it Boldly!"

Would love to hear from you~ If you would like to leave a comment feel free or email me at

Freda and Matt.. A Fairy Tale Story

What an adventure... Freda and I go back to high school and met through one of my very best girlfriends Tracy. Freda invited me to Disney to share their day with friends and family. As a special touch we decided to surprise Freda by Tracy coming along too! We had fun laughing over dinner and reminiscing about the New Kids on the Block... Yes, I was a fan- so much so I was convinced that I would one day marry Jordan Knight... but that's story for another day. Here is to you and Matt and an amazing fairy tale ending....

Anthony & Tressa.. A Sneak Peek..

Every once and a while there is that person that you talk with and feel instantly that you have known them all of your life. With Tressa that is just so... Maybe because her aunt is one of my closest girlfriends- but we just click somehow and I love when that happens... We have been planning this fun shoot for what seems like forever- and all I can say is it was worth every minute and then some and I am so excited to share a sneak peek of our fun around town today! I could sit and edit all night, but I promised the kids a few min of my evening.. so let me know what you think! big huggs guys- I can't wait to get together again soon! ~S.

Christy + Matt = Their Love Story..

I have been so excited about this wedding since I shot their engagement session back in the spring. What a fun and loving couple. I love it when people just love life and aren't on a serious mission to be serious! Even as they prepared for the ceremony there was a lot of laughter and a calm about the day that was very refreshing. (I was also very excited to see Cari and Andy... I can't believe it has been almost a year since your gorgeous wedding last year.)

The laughter continued long into the night as everyone danced and posed the night away... For the Fab Foto Booth! It was so much fun to watch the most unsuspecting guests get a little crazy for the camera- more to come on that later! A huge thank you to everyone for making the night so memorable and so much fun to photograph. Also to Crystal Hill at Marsh Creek Country Club in beautiful St. Augustine for a sensational job on orchestrating the reception. What an incredible location.

I will have the slide show posted soon- Please bear with me as it will be very hard to decide on my favs. Christy and Matt- all my best to you both! Enjoy! ~S.

I love this moment... I know it isn't sharp and crisp... but like life it is ok to be a little soft around the edges- don't ya think? (kuddos to B. for capturing it!)
