Hey there! I don't think I have ever done an intro post here on my blog. I have on Instagram, but not here.
So, I thought it's time to introduce myself.
I’m Patti – a natural light lifestyle newborn and family photographer based in Bradenton, Florida. When I take photos of families, I make sure mom and dad are always captured as well. Because, when you are taking photos yourself of your own children, you generally are not in the photos. I’ve always believed the parents should be in the photos as well. There’s never a time whenever I am with my own family that when we take photos, my husband and I are always included as well. (A tripod is your best friend.) These are memories your children will cherish forever!
I am a Florida native – a rarity, I know. I have always loved taking photos – I almost became a wedding photographer years ago, but became a wedding planner instead, which I did for 14 years. But, photography has always been my passion.
I love capturing imperfectly perfect images - capturing real life and true connection. I have eight beautiful grandchildren that I absolutely adore and, of course, take endless pictures of whenever I see them – professional and personal shots. I love my little photography business.
Dolphins are my fave and going to the beach (my happy place) to watch our beautiful Florida sunsets is the absolute best! I am also addicted to Diet Pepsi and chocolate! "Rocky" is my all time favorite movie. As you can see behind me in the picture below, you'll see the Playbill from the play, "Rocky" when it was in New York several years ago. It was fantastic!
Now, tell me. Who are you? Where are you from? Do you prefer indoor or outdoor photos? Leave me a comment.
Contact me when you are ready to have your family photos taken. I would love to capture you and your family, creating your legacy.
