Lakeland Senior Graduate Photographer [TSparks earns her Masters!]

This Amazing Graduate just so happens to be one of my best friends…and a fellow photog!  She earned her masters while raising two pretty amazing kiddos at home, AND starting up her own photography business.  I am so honored that she asked me to capture this huge milestone in her life, and I am so proud of Her!!!

We visited downtown Lakeland, at Lake Mirror to snag these awesome shots of her cap and gown (and sneak in a few shots with her camera too).

I am so excited about these shots, and LOVE the way they turned out!!!

Congrats Tameka on your accomplishments.  Hard work brings about some incredible rewards.. and girl, you are due!!!  Enjoy this awesome time and be proud of what you have done!!

Plant City Senior Photographer [Kamella’s Senior Memories..]

If there is one thing I’ve learned this year, it is that the Class of 2016 has some beautiful faces, and Ms. Kamella is absolutely no exception!  I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet girl a few weeks back to capture her Senior photos at Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland.  A perfect day with perfect weather, and we got some amazing shots!

There are numerous paths that are just gorgeous to shoot down on the reserve.  I just love the way the light falls through the trees!

and this girl… well she is sure to make any backdrop even more gorgeous!!!

Next we got off the beaten path a little to find this absolutely PERFECT little inlet with sunshine just pouring in.  and can this girl rock a pair of awesome boots, or what?!

After that, we had the chance to sit and relax a bit for some more casual shots.  Kamella brought along this special blanket from a family wedding, and  I think it adds just the perfect touch…

Lakeland Senior Photographer [Another Beautiful Senior – Downtown Lakeland]

How I love this time of year!!!! Seniors, and Proms, and everything that is exciting for High School!!!!  I absolutely L-O-V-E capturing Senior Moments, and Ms. Lenisha was no exception!

Lenisha wanted the urban look of a city, and we both agreed we love what Downtown Lakeland has to offer.  Tons of alleys and the railroad, and of course, everyone’s favorite – Lake Mirror 🙂

We started, believe it or not, outside of a parking garage.  As a photographer, I often like to find places that not everyone would notice as a unique backdrop for a shoot.  I loved the look of the brick and the iron bars here.. and the beauty of this tree-lined walkway was hard to beat!

Then on to the cold, and the wind in the alleys… Oh My!!!  Boy was it a WINDY day in downtown.  Poor Lenisha was wrapped in a blanket shielding herself from the elements between shots.. but once the camera was up, she turned it right back on!!  You would never know from this girl’s performance how this wind was a-whipping downtown!

and then on to.. you guessed it.. MORE Alleyways!!!  You know.. sometimes, you just stumble upon the perfect spot.. and the most AMAZING light. Well, here in this alley, there was the MOST PERFECT golden glow that just made this already beautiful Girl jump right into my lens!  I could not stop snapping away!PFP_3782PFP_3786

Finally – Our last two stops were the old train station, and the ever-amazingly beautiful (Have I mentioned how beautiful Downtown Lakeland is??) Lake Mirror.  I am in awe every time I walk this lake just how unique this place is, and am swept away by its sheer calm and beauty.

Lakeland Senior Photographer [Teddi – 2016 Senior – Bok Tower]

Catching up on some old shoots, and wanted to blog this gorgeous 2016 Senior – Ms. Teddi!

We lucked out with a gorgeous day walking around Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales.  Seems every time I go back, I explore and find new nooks and crannies to visit, and the place just gets more beautiful!  and if you’ve never heard the Carillon Tower…. well, you’re definitely missing out! If you have never checked out the gardens, be sure to make a day trip to enjoy what this place has to offer.. you won’t be sorry!!

For Teddi’s shoot, we started at the house at the back of the Gardens – which just happens to be one of my favorite spots.
