Abigail Ruby Maxwell was born on April 10 at 9:10 at North Florida Regional Medical Center. I got to be there the moment her big sister Ella met her for the first time. Such a beautiful interaction to witness. I’m so happy for my friends Chelsea and Brandon on the new addition to their family.
About a year ago, I got an email from someone in the Philippines who was raising money to hire a photographer in Gainesville, Florida. The parents of the newborn baby boy flew around the world to get treatment at UFHealth. He was in need of a heart transplant. I met Hunter Fenix and his parents a year ago and their story is extraordinary. He got his heart when he was 4 months old and his first birthday was really something to celebrate. Happy 1st Birthday Hunter!

It was such a joy to meet and photograph this little angel. Evelyn Fern is the daughter of my good friends Koertni & Brad.
TBT to my first newborn shoot with Kathleen, David, and Baby Joseph. This was back in 2015. I have learned so much since then, but I am grateful for the experience. (Not such a baby) Joseph is now a big brother.
A little pink for Valentine’s Day. With a name like Grace King, this little girl is destined for greatness. I loved being there at UF Health to capture her first day in the world.
One of my favorite families to photograph. I have loved watching these two as they experience life’s great joys. This shoot was one of the hardest I have done with a newborn, 2 year old, and 2 dogs, but those smiles make it all worth it. (And puppy snuggles)
Baby Gwen did me the honor of being so calm. She was the perfect model and she has made her parents incredibly happy.
