So excited to finally share Meredith's senior session today! I have been playing catch up for sure on the blog :) Meredith graduated from Plant High School and is attending the University of Florida doing incredible things, like being on their dance team called the Dazzlers. We took her portraits at Cypress Point Park, Hyde Park, and UT. My favorite part of her session was when I got to see her in her element, dancing! You are so beautiful inside and out girl! Wishing you nothing but the best for your future! :)Read More
I thought this post would be totally appropriate as the Tampa Bay Lighting Hockey season kicks off tonight to share a senior session of one of their biggest fans!! I have known Ashley since she was in 9th grade, and it has been the biggest blessing to watch her grow in my small group for the last few years. She is truly radiant, inside and out, and has a heart that is pure gold! She and her family love the Lighting so much, and I thought it was seriously so perfect that they incorporated it into her senior session!!Read More
Hope is seriously so gorgeous, inside and out and I loved getting to know her during her senior session. Hope graduated this year from the Academy of Holy Names in Tampa and is attending the University of Alabama in the fall. We met up at Cypress Point Park for the shoot and had the best time walking around!! She was up for anything which I love because it always makes the best portraits. EX: her in this tree (all the heart eyeessssss) and venturing out into a field with me :) Here are some of my favs below.Read More
WOWOWOW!! Sydney is seriously such a stunner!! I am so honored to have her on my team as an ABKP Senior Spokesmodel this year. We found the coolest field and also some really fun backdrops in Ybor City! I asked Sydney some questions to help you get to know her more! See her answers and her gorgeous images below:
What High School do you attend?: HB Plant High School
What is your dream college?!: University of North Carolina
Tell me about yourself: :) What are you passionate about? What are you most excited for about senior year?: Hi, I'm Sydney! While most people find their passion in sports or scrapbooking, I find my passion in something a little different... people. I love any opportunity I have to work with, be around, or help people. I am an extreme extrovert and I need this interaction to thrive and work to the best of my ability. I volunteer a lot and am even the President of my service club because I find genuine joy in helping others. While senior year is a bit nerve wracking, trying to apply to college and seeing my childhood come to an end, I'm most excited to just really take in my last year. I have heard from every previous senior that the year goes by so quickly you don't even realize it and I just need to let myself take it in. I'm excited to see where the last four years of hard work places me and where it places all my friends. I'm excited for wherever this year brings me because I know a lot is going to happen very quickly.
What activities are you involved in at school? outside of school?: I'm involved in many things at Plant, but my two priorities are I am Coverage Editor of Yearbook and President of Anchor Service Club. I love being involved in both of these activities because I love interacting with the people in them. Whether it be at a service club project or a yearbook event, I love to immerse myself into these environments because of the constant interaction with others. I am a junior ambassador for the Children's Cancer Center in which I help advertise for their events around my school. I spend time every month volunteering there and playing with the kids. The fact that I am able to help bring a smile to their faces during a very difficult time for them truly makes me happy.
How would your best friend describe you?: I believe my best friends would describe me as hardworking and compassionate. I am always trying to be one step ahead of the game and put my 100% effort into everything I do and my friends make fun of me for it. I'm constantly hearing from them "Sydney chill out" because I never stop going. I have a strong intrinsic motivation that keeps me always doing something and most of my friends don't understand how. Even though I am always focused on the future and how I can work to make it better, I also love to spend time with my friends and help them out. I'm always there for them to listen to their problems and give the best advice I can give and I've gotten compliments from them about how easy I am to talk to (which made me pretty happy). When it comes to my friends I always prioritize being there for them when they need me because I believe life would be pointless without these relationships to help you keep going.
Fav Color :): Blue
Isn't she just stunning? I'm booking 2017 Spring Seniors & 2017 Fall Rising Senior Portraits! Contact me or Sydney for more info :)
I want to introduce you to one of my ABKP Senior Spokesmodels. Zena and I had the best time exploring downtown Ybor. It fits her personality perfectly. She is fun, adventure, and beautiful inside and out. Get to know Zena better below :)
What high hchool do you attend?: HB Plant High School
What is your dream college?!: University of Virginia
Tell me about yourself: :) What are you passionate about? What are you most excited for about senior year?: Hey! I'm Zena! Born under the sun in Tampa, Fl, I was taught by my awesome God loving parents to appreciate the beauty of the world around me. Traveling and spending time with friends have got to be my favorite things, put me on a road trip with some cool people and candy and I'm bound to have a blast. At the moment any of my free time is used teaching myself how to play my pretty Taylor guitar, mastering using a Canon DSLR and working at a local Tampa boutique. I would say I'm passionate about the two most important things in life: Jesus and coffee... if you know me it's glaringly obvious. Nowadays you'll typically find me sitting at a coffee shop in Tampa, music plugged into my ears, and my next adventure on my mind. Senior year, I'm looking forward to making memories and trying new things. High school has definitely been an adventure and challenge. To be honest I can't wait to look back after senior year is done and see how God worked within me, my friends and my school.
Describe your style: Cute but comfy
What activities are you involved in at school? outside of school?: Come fall I will be working part time at a Local boutique called The Write Stuff. In school, aside from classes, I will be First Priorities Club President.
How would your best friend describe you?: My best friend would describe me as adventurous, genuine, dependable, kind spirited and honest.
Fav Color :): Yellow
Looking for an unforgettable senior photography experience? I would be honored to be a part of your senior year!! Contact me or Zena for more info!!
Y'all meet one of my amazing 2017 spokesmodels, Claudia! We had too much fun at her session. She has the kindest heart and truly so beautiful :) Here are some fun questions that I asked Claudia that will help you get to know her better!Read More
Laura is so full of life and truly a breath of fresh air!! When we met to talk about locations for her senior session she said how much she loved St Pete and really wanted the golden sunset glow in her images!! And boy did God show up with a perfect sunset that night that gave us gorgeous light to play with :) How beautiful is she?! Laura, girl you are amazing!! I had the best time with you at our session and hope you have the best senior year! :)
YAY! Amy's senior session at Davis Island and University of Tampa last Saturday morning was just the best. She is so easy-going and down to earth, oh and did I mention how beautiful she is? She is the editor and chief of Plant's Yearbook (which is a huge job and honor!) She would love to attend Auburn University in the fall which is such a great school. I absolutely loved getting to know her during our time together and can't wait to share with you some of my favorite images from her session below!! Amy, enjoy every minute of this year!! Can't wait to see all that you will accomplish and the plans God has for you!Read More
I met Rachel the morning of her session at Oxford Exchange and we had the best time! She is so genuine which made it so easy to get to know her and her heart! She is the editor of Plant High School's school newspaper and is interesting in attending Indiana University or Florida State once she graduates in May! Her red dress contrasted beautifully against the white was brick at Oxford Exchange. We walked over to University of Tampa afterwards and got some more beautiful scenic backdrops! Rachel, I hope you have a wonderful senior year and can't wait to see all you will accomplish :) Thank you for choosing me to capture your senior year! Here are some of my favs!Read More
Elizabeth is incredible! It was so easy to get to know her while walking in downtown Tampa with her and her girls. Her heart , dreams, goals, and passions are inspiring. We started at the Straz Center, which was super fitting for her personality because she has a true love for theatre. Elizabeth is the Thespian Troupe president at Plant High School as well as president of Youth in Government Club. Then we made our way over to the Tampa Museum of Art, which has some really cool walls and made for the neatest backdrops!! Elizabeth's dream college is Columbia in New York! I can't even wait to see her make her mark on this world!! Here are some of my favorites from her senior session :)Read More
This is a sweet post for me, because my sister is one of my best friends. I just can't get over the fact that my little sister (as in 7 years younger was truly my baby doll growing up) is a SENIOR in high school. Maybe it's partially the acknowledgement that it will be 7 years since I graduated high school when she graduates, but man I feel like I'm holding back tears just typing this. She has become so beautiful inside and out, and is one of the best friends and sister a girl could ask for. So let me tell you about Rosemary, my twin or "mini me" with red hair (oops sorry I'm suppose to say strawberry blond ;) Rosemary is seriously amazing. She is smart, funny, sassy, yet kind, and loves her family and Jesus so well. On top of being in challenging classes in school, she is a swimmer, a musician, and really anything else she sets her mind to be. I always joke when describing Rose to my friends as the sassier version of me, which its true. I wish i could think as fast on my feet as she can, or do really cool Russian accents that have people rolling on the floor laughing.
It's your year Rose. Take a moment to breathe in and out and remember that God has incredible plans for you. I can't wait to see all the things you accomplish, the lives you touch, and the journey God has for you. We are your biggest cheerleaders!! Love you!Read More
I am so excited to announce for the first time ever that I am searching for 5 to 6 ladies graduating in 2017 in the South Tampa area whose inward beauty shines through, who feel confident in front of the camera, and who wouldn't mind spending a little extra time with me to represent ABK Photography at their schools! If you love being in front of the camera, feeling a part of a team, hanging out with incredible new friends, and having FUN then keep reading :)Read More
Makenna's senior session was truly a blast! We started in downtown St Pete and ended up at the Dali Museum, which is right next to where she will be attending USF St Pete in the fall! Her mom and sister came with us which was so fun and we all grabbed dinner together on the way home. I have had the privilege of knowing Makenna for the past year through church and she is such an amazing girl, inside and out. I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for her. Wishing you nothing but the best sweet girl!! Here are some of my favorite images from her session :)Read More
Courtney is a stunner with an infectious smile that kept me smiling the whole session. To say we hit it off during her senior session was an understatement!! She is so cool y'all and just as beautiful on the inside as the outside 💕. We found some lovely spring flowers in Hyde Park and had to stop to snap this image then headed to my favorite rooftop that overlooks the entire downtown Tampa Skyline!!
Can't wait to see where the Lord leads you in college girl!! FSU is so lucky to have you!! Keep shining bright and remember whose you are 💕 All my rising seniors (#classof2017) Stay tuned for some really exciting announcements directed at you coming soon!!
Wow!! Abby is seriously such a natural beauty and her laugh is so contagious. I had the best time getting to know her during her senior session at University of Tampa and Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club! Thankfully the rain held off and it turned out to be such a beautiful day. Abby is going to be attending the University of Florida in the fall and I just couldn't be more excited for her. Abby, I know you will succeed in whatever you choose to do!! Thank you for choosing me to capture your senior year!!Read More
Kelly has a heart of gold. She is so kind and down to earth, and did I mention a natural model?! I mean come on!! I loved getting to know her and her future plans during her Ulitmate ABKP Senior session. We started out at the University of Tampa then made our way down to Ullele (which is such a fun spot that I had never been to before), and then wrapped it up with my favorite skyline spot in Tampa. This girl got a FULL RIDE to Auburn, which is where my mom attended so it was fun to have that connection!! So of course we had to throw on the official college tee for a tee for a few shots!
Kelly, wishing you nothing but the best in your future! Thank you for choosing me to document such a special season of your life. War Eagle :)Read More
When I met Carson for the first time it was as if we had known each other forever! She definitely is such a people person and immediately we clicked! We started off at Oxford Exchange with the beautiful white walls that make her stand out and then moved over to University of Tampa with the classic brick and greenery. We ended in her backyard with lots joy and glitter! So fun!! The whole time we were together talking she was just telling me of all her dreams and plans for after high school. She just recently had been accepted into her dream school Notre Dame, and is ecstatic to be attending there in the fall! Carson, keep shining girl! The Lord has some incredible plans for you!Read More
"She is clothed in strength and dignity and laughs without fear of the future." -Proverbs 31: 25. How beautiful is this verse and the meaning behind it. This session is quickly becoming one of my most recent favorites, just because of how joyful Rebekah is, how cool it was to shoot on a roof top of a parking garage with the Tampa skyline in the background, and her mom made her a floral crown.. I mean, come on.Read More
What a joy it was to spend time with this truly incredible senior! Micah is not only stunning, smart, and kind hearted, but she is also an incredibly talented artist. We started her session on Bayshore in the backyard of a white house filled with rose gardens. Then we headed to her home where I was able to capture her in her element. Check out the end to see her incredible artwork and boldly colored self portrait. It is always so cool to connect with fellow creatives and I left feeling inspired. I just can't wait to see what her future holds for you girl! Go shine bright :)
