I am a Tampa Bay based couture photographer specializing in wedding, newborn, maternity and family photography. My photography is unique, stylized and caters to clients who view photography as an art. I feel so honored to photograph such amazing moments in peoples' lives.
Something magical happens when I look through my viewfinder, the rest of the world fades away and awe inspiring, authentic images are created. I am passionate about photography and utilizing my talent to bring happiness to my clients. I find joy in my work and truly feel blessed to provide unique, artistic and memorable photographs.
Capturing Cherished Memories
I created Rising Lotus Photography to capture beautiful, unique and often spiritual moments that truly define our lives. In a fleeting split second the genuine essence of life creates unique memories. A photo has the power to create a permanent memory of the most cherished experiences such as the tender smile of a new mom, the compassionate embrace between friends and the overwhelming love between a husband and wife.
My clients are my inspiration. I take the time to get to know you, your personality and your photographic preferences. Every photograph is artistically processed, edited and retouched to ensure your inner beauty shines.
My goal is to provide you with beautiful, creative and unique photography that captures the beauty of your most cherished moments. Whether it is an exciting family trip to the beach, the tender moments of caring for a newborn, or saying "I do" to the love of your life, let the love you share be preserved forever.
Being able to photograph your important life moments is truly an honor. I offer a complimentary consultation so I can customize all my photography collections to meet your desires. I offer digital & print rights to my images, as well as first edition online proofing, a full range of professional prints & products, customized books & handcrafted couture albums. I infuse lifestyle photography with artistry to produce amazing images to be cherished for a lifetime.
Photography is a celebration of life, and your happiness my highest priority. In addition to offering personable, professional and prompt service to every client, I provide guidance and consultation every step. Whether we set up a special photo-shoot at a select location, or I am attending your special occasion, we will develop a unique photo session together, and you will receive high quality photographs in a timely manner.
I am very passionate about philanthropy and giving back to the community. I have several charities I work with supporting their programs and events including the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay, Brides against Breast Cancer, Center for Hope, PlaySmart, Children's Cancer Center, various schools, families in need and small community support projects.
May you find joy in your cherished moments...
