|I absolutely LOVE what I do. I feel the greatest gift you can bestow on your children, besides raising them well, is to capture the unconditional love you have for them. Think back to your own childhood and the memories you have. Are they based on photographs? My hope is to leave our children, and your children, with photographs that will remind them how much they were loved. Capturing the seemingly little moments now, may represent the big moments later. I love candid images that convey true personalities. I like images that are REAL.|
Over my 20+ years of photographing, (wow, that was a scary number to write.) I have met some of the coolest families on the planet.Some of my best friends started as clients. We have grown up together, shared funny stories about our kids, and helped each other cope with the ups and downs of parenthood.
I work hard, traveling all over the state of FL, some 3000 miles a month, so you don't have to go anywhere. I want your portraits to say something about you and where you are at this point in your life. It's so much fun to work at new locations every day. It's more creative, more exciting, and certainly more unique for you. Together we will create truly custom artwork for your home.
I work with my family. Carl, my husband of 23 years does your printing and retouching. You should be nice to him if you talk to him, he has power... We have two children. Alexa is a freshman at the University of Florida. Connor is a HS senior and will be joining her at UF summer 2013. Go Gators! Having been through all ages and stages, I doubt your kids will pull something on me mine haven't already tried.
Our family loves to travel. Everywhere. We took the kids out of school for a full year when they were 10/11 and went around the world. 23 countries. Homeschooled. Asia and Africa are our favorites. We lived in Greece for two years. If you have a trip you are considering and want help/suggestions, let us know. We'd love to help.
In 2013 we are launching a new website with our travel work, stay tuned here for details. Also, starting in 2013 after both kids are in school and we are empty nesters, we will start splitting our time between portrait work and travel work.
Children are my passion. DG raises over 35K for children's charities every year. If you have a passion for children and need help raising money, please give me a call. I'd love to help.
It's been an honor and a privledge to photograph over a thousand familes since I began this journey. I'd love to meet you and help tell your families story as well.
