Jeanine and Kevin-- Engagement Pictures

Jeanine and Kevin.  What a cool couple!  They just ooze trendy and cool.  And so super sweet and down to earth.  They are getting married in less than 2 weeks at the Tampa Aquarium.  Can I tell you how excited I am for their wedding??  And when Jeanine said she wish she had done an engagement shoot, I practically screamed "It's not too late!!!".  I was dying to shoot this couple.  They are just too adorable for words. 

Jeanine is a vegetarian, and never kills anything.  I mean, the poisonous snake Kevin found in their garage, saved.  Find a roach, saved.  Haha, just imagine her face when I smashed two ants inches from her face while posing her.  I had no idea!!  She was so cute, she ushered some ants to safety from her arm to the nearby wall.  I can honestly say I've never met anyone like her.  And did I mention she's drop dead GORGEOUS?  No?  Well, she is.  She totally reminded me of an actress.  I THINK she reminds me of Rachael Leigh Cook from She's All That.  You know, the movie where the "dorky" but already pretty girl was miraculously turned beautiful when she took off her glasses.  You know you watched that movie a million times back in the day.

Half way through the shoot, we saw the dark clouds and heard the thunder rolling in.  We rushed and managed to get some pretty awesome shots, thanks to those gorgeous dark clouds. 

Alright, Jeanine and Kevin..  the countdown has started!  I can't wait till your big day.  It will be absolutely gorgeous!

Sam- Class of 2011!!!

I met Sam and her mom, Jessica while I was shooting the McGregor family. Sam and her family were on their FL vacation from Indiana and she wanted to get her senior pictures done while they were still here. What a great idea!! And how lucky am I to have been there for that opportunity? I loved this area by the Land's End condos in Treasure Island. Beautiful beach with rocks, boardwalk, gazebo and high grass. Perfection! And Sam and her mom were total sweet hearts. We had such a great time! Sam, I hope you have the best senior year ever!! Enjoy every single moment!!
