Tampa Restaurant and Food Photography for Taco Bar

I am so excited to welcome Taco Bar to the TDG family! How fun and colorful is their session? I had so much fun styling food photography for their restaurant, as well as showcasing their location. I have to say, they have some of the best Mexican I've ever had. I do not say that lightly! It is all homestyle and authentic. MADE FROM SCRATCH! Yes, it's amazing. I luckily got to try the whole menu after the session, so I can vouch for it's deliciousness. Be sure to check out their social media sites and head to their location to try for yourself. You will not be disappointed! 

Tampa Lifestyle and Product Photography for V'Enza Creations

This session was a breath of fresh air for me- where do I begin? Sheila of V'Ezna Creations had reached out through our Babe Crafted/Boss Babe Club network and she is simply AMAZING. We immediately clicked and had a conversation about our energies and how we could combine forces to create some new, magical imagery for her brand.

Sheila founded V’Enza Creations in 2014 with a vision to inspire, motivate, protect and heal.  She was at one of the lowest points in her life when she received one of her biggest inspirations.  Since then, she says she has been guided spiritually every step of the way in creating her line of jewelry and accessories.  Her mission is to bring happiness, peace, healing, positivity and light to as many people as she can reach through her creations.  Her goal is to have her line inspire others to set intentions for themselves.  Sheila believes strongly in the law of attraction and feels that her jewelry can serve as a reminder to her clients that anything is possible when you direct your energy towards who you want to be and what you want to become.  Her drive and motivation were driven by her children, whom she wanted to set an example for.  By continuing to push through during tough times and never losing sight of her goals, she has shown her children that they can do anything they set their minds to. 

Sheila is so warm, genuinely good hearted, and had the energy and kindness you want to be best friends with. I am so happy we crossed paths and are now creating amazing imagery for her business.

Tampa Food Photography for LS Organics

Where do I even start? This shoot with LS Organics was one of the funnest sessions I have done in awhile - mostly because my close friend and talented stylist, Amber Veatch of Amber Veatch Designs was there to help with all of the creativeness. Now, WARNING: this gallery may make you drool. Jacqueline of LS Organics let Amber and I have free rein of her shop to capture details of her storefront as well as her delicious meals. LS Organics is a modern and chic organic meal service that embraces the value of a plant-rich, nutrient dense, superfood diet. Meals are made with love and are conveniently available for at their South Tampa store as well as available for delivery to your doorstep. 

Tampa Product Photography for Liftreat

One thing I love about products is being able to take them with me to shoot. I was able to bring some items of Liftreat's home with me to capture in my makeshift studio....aka. my dining room.

I'm very open minded and love to try new things!  I'm currently living on a farm with a growing vegetable garden. Prior to Michigan and Tampa, I lived in NYC and Chicago...I like to travel and explore!"  - Erika

I know what you all are thinking, and yes, I have already asked to see her tap in person.

Because of Erika's unique designs, professionalism, and overall stellar personality, I KNEW we needed to team up and create an all-inclusive service for TDG clients. Looking for branding design AND photography to make your business look it's best?  I am happy to say this service has launched and you can read all about it on my DESIGN page.

 

Tampa Branding Photography Session for Wandering Whisk Bakeshop

Where do I start with this cuteness? I was so honored to capture a branding photography session for Jen of Wandering Whisk Bakeshop. Not only is she one of the most adorable gals...ever...but she also creates some AH-mazing sweets. (My favorite are her dream bars, hands down) BUT, let's get back to Jen and her business.

"Wandering Whisk Bakeshop is a whimsical home bakery in sunny Florida, serving the Tampa Bay area. We specialize in custom-made sweets from scratch: cakes, cupcakes, French macarons, and cookie sandwiches. Our sweets are perfect for everyday celebrations as well as birthdays, weddings, holidays, baby & bridal showers. Our buttercream frosting has been awarded as the best in St. Pete!"

Jen is a television producer by day and a baker by night. (Yeah, she's a badass. A darling one.) Her passion for baking started in her family kitchen as a child; she hails from generations of family bakers who continue to influence her still today. It all began with a sweet tooth, and her love of baking grew from there.

Check out her in-home session featuring some of her famous confections and of course, Jen herself!

I am not lying when I say that I could live in TPS; it is a beautiful house off of Howard Ave. in south Tampa and is full of some lovely, unique products. (I'll take one of everything, please!) I spent a couple of hours sipping the most delicious, hot tea and captured all of The Paper Seahorse's special rooms. If you haven't been, be sure to stop by. The look, the atmosphere, you'll feel right at home. I am looking forward to seeing their new images online and on social media, especially Tona's new headshots! She was a little nervous about getting in front of the camera. Why? NO IDEA! She looks fab! What else? They have some kitty mascots! Be still me heart; any fellow cats ladies are friends of mine! 

Tampa Jewelry Photography for Blossom and Shine

I had the pleasure of meeting Julie of Blossom and Shine over a year ago at Indie Flea. I had been searching for a dainty, classic gold ring and found one at her booth. We kept in contact after that day and I have been capturing images of her gorgeous pieces ever since! She handcrafts the most beautiful jewelry in her St. Pete studio and I proudly wear her earrings and ring daily. They are the perfect pieces for casual wear or to dress up. Be sure to check out her website!
