Baby On The Way

Shannon and Kenneth are expecting their first baby! This is such an exciting time for the Mendenhall’s as they are preparing to become parents! I always love getting to walk with families through this exciting time. There are always a lot of emotions surrounding it.

At the beginning of the session Shannon and I connected about being Speech Language Pathologists. It was so good to be able to connect through that and have a shared interest and experience. Shannon and Kenneth were both so warm and inviting during our session, I just loved our time together.

Oasis of Hollis Gardens

Shannon and Kenneth traveled an hour to Lakeland for our session. I always am so honored when people would travel to have a session with me. It makes our time together so very special.

The location of Hollis Gardens is one of my favorites. Between the beautiful garden spaces to the gardenia trees, to the open staircase, it is the perfect location for any type of session. Since there are so many varied locations here, it results in your gallery being very dynamic, with unique photos you can cherish for years to come.

If you are interested in traveling to Lakeland for a session with me at Hollis Gardens, contact me. I would love to chat more about it.
