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

Carolyn & Stephen... St. Augustine Engagement Session

Loved their session..Though it was quite chilly, they didn't once complain about it- they just jumped right into the session with both feet and had fun until the last frame was shot!

It was my first visit to the St. Augustine Lighthouse~ and worth the drive for anyone wanting something different to do. The staff was wonderful and knowledgeable and I will definitely be back soon.

You are both so wonderful and I am so proud to call you friends! Many thanks (and I can never say it enough) to my amazing friend Wes Lester for all of his incredible insight, ideas and help. Enjoy! ~S.

Engagement Session ~ Jacksonville, FL Kristen & Lewis

And the slide show... The more I edit and get into these images, the more I absolutely love them! They are just so much fun! Gorgeous you guys are together! Enjoy!~ S.

Jacksonville Engagement Session ~ Carolyn & Steven

Just a sneak peek~ I promise more is to come later.... but how adorable are they! Wes and I headed down to St. Augustine with Carolyn and Steven last weekend and normally it takes a while to warm up and get a flow going- so when my first few images of the day became my favorites I have to question my theories of photography over the past few years... They very easily were able to let the world (and cameras) drift from around them and really were the only two people in the world... That is a very beautiful definition of love my friends ~one that is full of God and one that puts the other first. I always say that if you put God first in your marriage, everything else will just fall into place.... yours is so simple but it speaks so loudly. I love you guys and am so proud to be part of your very special day. Enjoy! ~S.

Kristen & Lewis

Meet Kristen and Lewis... Fun, playful and simply adorable are they. Anytime you plan a shoot you think and talk about how you "want" it to go.... the reality of how it turns out is always quite different. This was just so- different but definetly better! The Russell House was built in 1875 and is full of old world charm. They could not have chosen a better location- every thing about it was just perfect. A huge thank you to Ty and her family for taking time out of their day to come and let us shoot and to Bailes for assisting me. I hope you enjoy the images... I can't wait to dig into the rest of them- we have so many fun ones to go through. ~S.
