I had so many people ask me if I was going to cry when Nick started kindergarten.  “No Way!” I would respond.  He’s so excited and I was so excited for him.  New adventures, new friends, new experiences…what’s not to be excited about?  I mean, it is kindergarten after all.

After a good nights sleep, a tummy filled with strawberries, raisins and peanut butter waffles, Nick was dressed, cleaned up and ready to go.  Just a few pictures in front and we’re ready to go.  Excitement still fills the air as we begin our walk to school.  We reach the ‘walking gate’ and I realize I’m so grateful that I don’t have to say goodbye just yet.  As we walk through the gates, I see his teacher standing outside, bright and cheerful as she welcomes her new students to class.  Then it hits me.  This is for real…he’s starting school.  Wait…what?  I watch him give his Dad a hug and listen to encouragement as only a father can give.  Don’t cry I tell myself…let him see you smile.  So I put on a smile full of shakes as I hug him and wish him a fun, great first day.  He smiled and said ‘bye mom’ and walked into class.  I couldn’t believe the emotion that flooded over me.  Missing my little baby boy, I started to reflect on the past 5 years.  Time has gone so quickly and the next 5 years will go even faster.

“I’m looking for a grungy-type background…do you have any suggestions?”  asked Ryland’s mom when scheduling his senior photo session.  “Yes, I know the perfect place!  Have you ever been to Curtis Hixon Park in downtown Tampa?”  This place is so versatile it’s ridiculous.  Besides being right on the Tampa Riverwalk with the Univeristy of Tampa in the background and right next to two museums, there is a huge parking lot with the perfect ‘grundge’ look Ryland was going for.  I mean, this is his senior session and I’m sure a park with pretty flowers is the exact opposite of what they were looking for.  So we agreed to start here then head over to Riverview High School where Ryland played football and grab some photos there.

Needless to say, Ryland was a stud posing the camera and let more of his personality come to life once we arrived on the field.  I loved shooting this session and getting to know Ryland’s smile.  Below you’ll see a few of my favorites from his session!

It’s that time of year to start thinking about your senior photo session and we have the perfect package for you!  Contact us today for more details!

Tall grass…roses in full bloom…golden sunlight splitting through branches….these are a few of my favorite things.  So you can imagine my giddiness when I arrived at the Rose Garden for Kelsie’s senior portrait session recently.  Even though it was hot with no breeze and bugs all around, it didn’t stop Kelsie from having laugh after laugh and striking the perfect pose on cue.  I had such a blast and cannot wait to do more of these fun photo sessions!!
