Engaged! | Bre + Maxx

The gorgeous lighting and location have nothing on the couple being featured in this engagement session! From the wardrobe to the props, it is nothing short of rustic romance.
Back story: The couple took a little vacation up to New York, and after going through the roller coaster of the airport losing their luggage, Maxx turned the day around by proposing to Bre on a canoe in Central Park!
I felt incredibly honored when Bre asked me to not only shoot their engagement session, but also their wedding day come November of this year. Thank you both for such an effortless and FUN photo shoot! I am thrilled for what is yet to come for your wedding day :)

There’s nothing that I love more than a themed engagement session. Throw in a sport, and I am sold. I met this amazing couple from another one of my brides, and I am so happy (and honored) they have chosen me for their big day as well. Congratulations Sammi + Nick! I am so looking forward to working with you both again in October!

Another Year With Our First Arrow

Heather Frank Photography

Heather Frank Photography

3Children are a heritage from the Lord,

offspring a reward from him.

4Like arrows in the hands of a warrior

are children born in one’s youth.

5Blessed is the man

whose quiver is full of them.

They will not be put to shame

when they contend with their opponents in court.
-Psalm 127:3-5 (NIV)

Tomorrow is the big day that our first arrow, Hudson, will be turning TWO. As I am sitting here wondering where another year went, I can’t help but be a little nostalgic towards the past two years we had with him. You really don’t know the measure of God’s love until you have children yourself. If you didn’t have the qualities of patience, perseverance, and unconditional love before – most likely you will after you become a parent.
Since I haven’t been very faithful with blogging any of my late spring or summer sessions, I figured it may be a good starter to blog the most stressful party I ever threw together from last year: Hudson’s First Birthday (Wild Rumpus) Party. Not only is it a reminder of how much he has grown in a year, but also a reminder of why we throw big parties like this once (lol). Little did I know that we paved the way with making this theme (Where the Wild Things Are) for how his personality has been sprouting this entire year – adventurous, curious, and a little wild.

Engaged! | Emily + Zach

February 12th, 2016
Downtown Disney | Orlando, FL

21

When the opportunity arises to shoot an engagement session at one of the happiest places on Earth, you take it.
Ok, so maybe it wasn’t at THE Magic Kingdom itself, but it was pretty close. Emily + Zach lit up the session with their outgoing personalities and love for one another, making it one of the funnest sessions I have had to date. When you are at a location such as this one, it feels like the overall look of a session can be endless. From the brick walls, hot-air balloon back -drop, and all the way to eating candy apples near a food truck, this session was truly like no other that I have done before. If I can just do all of my photo shoots at any of the Disney parks, that would be great. I am so excited to work with these two again for their wedding in August! Emily + Zach, congratulations once again and thank you so much for allowing me to capture this special time in both of your lives!

Engaged! | Nicole + Conrad

February 6th, 2016
The Ringling Museum | Sarasota, FL

I had the honor of working with this stunning couple and their adorable little family recently over at the The Ringling, and it was nothing short of amazing! Other than the “chilly” and extremely windy conditions, we made it out on top with the sweetest engagement and family photos. Working with them only made the anticipation of shooting their wedding this July that much more exciting! You can just see the chemistry between not only the two of them, but also in their family as a whole. The colors and textures the Ringling Museum provide are an artist’s dream, as it should be. Nicole + Conrad, I hope you enjoy your gallery just as much (and if not more) than I do!

Fair Love | Becca + Ethan

January 28th, 2016
Port Charlotte, FL | Charlotte County Fair

What do you get when you combine the county fair and two people that are the perfect picture of “easy going”? THIS. Their chemistry compliments the atmosphere perfectly, even though we battled dreary weather for most of it (seriously, regardless of the photos showing otherwise).
When they approached me for some fun photos before Valentine’s Day, the original plan was a simple location of railroad tracks. However, when I heard our little fair was in town for their photo session, I needed to throw out this idea. I was more than happy they agreed! I couldn’t think of a better couple to have this much fun with! Thank you both for changing the plans up a bit, and dealing with the “carnies” with me.

Expecting! | Jen + Broc

Longboat Key Beach, FL
January 18th, 2016

Beach meets woodsy elements for this gorgeous maternity session, featuring some dear friends of mine: Jen, Broc, and baby boy! This session was one for the books, in more ways than one! After rescheduling due to Tornado warnings in the southwest Florida region, we all braved the “severe” cold front that directly followed the string of storms, plus the fierce winds along the coastline. Playing out by the beach in 50-something degree weather is very cold for those of us that are used to a consistent 80 degrees weather pattern. Nonetheless, I know that we were all so very happy with the outcome! These two once again were just so effortless to work with, and shined through each frame. Thank you both again for allowing me to capture another milestone in your lives! I am so happy and ready for baby boy to be here!
Congratulations you two on your first expected little one!

Engaged! | Gabby + Ryan

Deep Creek, FL
January 2nd, 2016

I couldn’t of picked a better session to start my 2016 off with! This perfectly styled engagement session was extra special to me because the bride and I have known each other for close to 15 years (probably even longer than that)! I was more than thrilled to meet Ryan, and honestly couldn’t of picked anyone better for her. This session was seriously as fun as it looked, and we were so thankful the rainy day took a break for us. G + R, I am so excited for your rustic wedding in October!

Expecting! | Kelly + Josh

Boca Grande, FL

I was so thankful that one of my last session of 2015 was this gorgeous maternity session. Other than weddings and engagement sessions, maternity is right up there for my favorite styled sessions to shoot. This glowing momma-to-be and her fiance wanted to incorporate their love of fitness and chic style together for this session, and I just love how it turned out. From the LuluLemon attire and debuting baby boy’s first pair of Jordan’s, to the elegant jaw-dropping blue maternity dress and GQ-like style, the session in its’ entirety was breathtaking. Kelly + Josh, congratulations on this wonderful chapter in your lives! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of it.
