simply original

I believe photography is art, I truly believe your images should be displayed, not kept on a hard drive somewhere. 


I am dedicated to producing beautiful, high quality photos for your special occasion.  Whether it's your child's personality, telling your love story or documenting family history, I want to help you capture everyday moments that make up your amazing, one of kind life.

I offer beach sessions, newborn lifestyle, cake smash sessions, senior portraits, engagement, maternity and family packages in Destin and Santa Rosa Beach Florida!

If you are visiting PLEASE book as soon as you know your dates.  My husband and I also own and operate an adventure company that is seasonal, so I get pretty booked up between the two.  I only offer sunrise and sunset on the beach, other times available through day for non beach sessions.  Please book as soon as you know your dates so I can fit you in!  


 Most beach portrait sessions will have some wind, please have an alternate plan for hair if 

it is windy.  I recommend bringing hair ties for your little girls. 

Every gallery will look different based on weather, wind, & water color. 

If you are trying to achieve something special, please let me know.

I will edit my favorites and will retouch up to 5 images after editing, face swap and extensive editing will be billed on an hourly basis of $40 per hour.

Bring a snack or toy for children to keep them occupied.

Frequently Asked Questions

1.) Do you need a deposit? 
Yes, 50% or you can pay it all up front.  I take all major credit cards, cash or check.  

2.) Do we print our photos through you? 
I truly believe that photos should be displayed, and I encourage printing.  I order from a professional lab with GREAT results!  Although my packages include printing rights, if you do not chose to order them through me that the quality of the photo can be compromised with a bad lab or printer.  My print prices are listed under PACKAGES.  After your session, you will receive your images from your online gallery then you can print freely if you wish.

3.)What color should we wear?

Organic earthy tones are my absolute favorite!  

Pastels, blue, pink, mint all look really pretty on the beach. 

4.) What time does a sunrise session start?

I like to be on the beach ready to go before sunrise to get the best lighting.

5.) What time does a sunset session start? 

We have to watch the sunset times closer to your reservation.  I like to be out there earlier that later, if we go over your time there is no extra charge.  I want your photos to turn out perfect!

Usually 45 min- 1 hour before sunset.

6.) Should we shoot for the beginning of our trip or the end? 

I do not recommend waiting until the end of the trip, sunburn is not attractive :)
