Hi all! Today I decided to do a little something different and post about myself. As your photographer, I want you to get to know me as much as I get to know you.

So in the spirit of that idea here are 15 things you may or may not know about me:

  1. I have a degree in Marine Biology- I have a love of all things ocean particularly sea turtles and dolphins but really, I have a weakness for ALL animals
  2. I am engaged!! Me and my Fiancé (still weird a year later) matt met when we both lived in Wisconsin and have already lived in three states together.
  3. I am pretty much obsessed with my dog Layla and anyone else’s animals for that matter (check my insta, you’ll see her there lots)
  4. I recently (4 months ago) became Vegetarian, well I am eating fish so I suppose Pescetarian. Ask me about it! I love discussing recipes and why I made the switch.
  5. I absolutely love lifestyle photography, I only recently figured this out about myself. There is something about the un-posed, raw aspect of it I truly love.
  6. I am horrible with directions, Although, slowly but surely that is improving, I still rely on my phone maps wayyy to much.
  7. I am way too sensitive, this is no joke, I will cry at the drop of a hat. Anyone who knows me knows this.. I get it from my mother.
  8. I love listening, I want my friends, “clients” (aka friends), strangers to feel like they can talk to me about anything, it’s always something I have enjoyed doing and have been told I am good at.
  9. I’m left handed, you maybe could have guessed this one, but I am ambidextrous for certain things so is my little brother!
  10. This one is pretty obvious, but if I’m not drinking coffee then it’s wine time.. I live on the two, ok not really but you get what I mean. Let’s meet up grab a coffee or head to a wine bar!
  11. I hardly ever straighten my hair, when I do I look ten times older. Something about my curly hair and short self make it look like I’m 16 years old, it’s always fun to see people’s reactions when I show up somewhere with straight hair looking my age.
  12. I was a Tom boy growing up, that hasn’t changed all that much but I like to think I have some girl-ish style now.
  13. I can wiggle my ears (can you tell I am running out of facts about myself)
  14. I love to cook!  I am NOT a good baker for whatever reason that never works out for me, but cooking a good meal, oh yeah, I get down. I love to try new things and actually make the best food when we are completely out of food at home. Making things out of limited ingredients has always been a fun challenge for me for some reason I love it.
  15. I have a freckle (some people call it a birthmark) in my right eye. My dad has it too and it’s one thing I really love about myself, I feel like it makes me unique.

 

Thanks for reading all about me! Now it’s your turn I want to hear some fun facts about you. Comment Below

Last week me and my fiance Matt (still can’t get used to that 1 year later) had the rare opportunity to have a whole weekend off together! We got up at the crack of dawn grabbed the dog, some Starbucks of course and headed to the Courtney Campbell Causeway to watch the sunrise. I snapped a couple pictures of our fun morning the light was so perfect!

Last week Lindsey, myself, and her mom went to downtown and we took some portfolio pictures for Lindsey.

Can I say wow!! As most clients are she was a tad bit nervous before her session… I think she killed it. It just goes to show, being yourself can make for the best photos. I think she did a great job showing off different parts of her personality. I had so much fun capturing each emotion she was trying to convey. I see big things ahead for this one!!

I hope you all enjoy the photos as much as I do! www.bbarefoot.com

If most of you don’t know I am a big of an animal lover (( to put it lightly)) and recently I fell in love with Sea turtles. I mean how can you not love these graceful, grass-eating marine creatures.

“Fin, noggin, DUDE! ” Amiright?

Well, one thing I found out while studying them in the Bahamas was that there is a huge problem with something that we as humans use on the daily. Who would have guessed that this problem could come from such a tiny, overused product. The culpret: STRAWS!  Straws are a giant harm to sea turtles and lots of marine animals. Don’t get me wrong, when I am sipping on my venti iced coffee from Starbucks, I can’t help but have a straw so I am right there with you.  I am not saying give up straws entirely, but make the switch to metal, or reusable straws. Over 500,000,000 plastic straws are used each day in the US ( Plastic Pollution Coalition) and believe it or not most people just toss them into the garbage and that’s the end of the story, however most don’t realize these straws contribute a giant amount to plastic pollution and our little turtle dudes aren’t a fan. These straws get stuck up turtle’s noses and can cause extreme harm (see video below). All I ask is skip the straw, try it a few times when going out to eat, you’ll be surprised how easy it actually is and that’s coming from a big time straw-lover. We replaced all the straws in our household with stainless steel metal straws, every time I use one I just think about all the turtles and marine life I am sparing from harm, try it and see, you won’t be disappointed!

Check out these alternative reusable straws, trust me your turtle friends thank you!! #saynotostraws #PlasticPollutes

Last week I had the chance to meet adorable baby Leighton, this sweet little girl was as mellow as her parents, who by the way are doing a great job! (Way to go Jenn & Adam). I can’t wait to watch her grow! Newborn photos are always fun, you get to see a little glimpse of who that baby will grow into, and little parts of their personality forming.

I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I do!!

It was such a pleasure to photograph the lovely Garrison Family. We beat the heat (barley) on an early morning session in Fred Ball Park. The boys enjoy watching all the squirrels run around as well as the garbage trucks, while mom and dad tried not to melt.

I love photographing families and getting to know their personalities. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do. It was so great to get to know you Garrison Family!

Let me start by saying who doesn’t love a wedding on a beach! Am I right?

Beth & Julian were the first couple I met since moving to Tampa, and I couldn’t have been happier to document their special day. It was a perfect day, with an even more perfect couple. The ceremony took place at Fort Desoto park in St. Petersburg, and the reception was held at Farm Table Kitchen.

I hope you enjoy the picture as much as I do. Congrats!
