30a photoshoot on the beach- Davista Photography

Late April in Inlet Beach and such a beautiful night with this couple and their sweet baby girl on the way! Since this evening, their bundle of joy has arrived, and i’m so thankful we were able to get together to get some fabulous photographs. Not to mention how absolutely GORGEOUS Jennifer is to capture! She even had her hair and make done at Pure and Couture Salon in Destin to feel a little extra glam and ready for the photoshoot showing off her bump!

Just want to share a few from this night, congratulate this sweet couple and even share a book that is great in all aspects of life and every relationship you come across. Although I don't have kiddos of my own, the best thing I can give is advice to continue to love and show love everyday and seeing this couple and how much they care for one another prompted me to share one of the first books that gave me a passion for self discovery, The Five Love Languages. If you’re looking for a book to read together as couple, to learn what your love language is, or even to find out about other friends and family, I can’t recommend this book enough.

Congratulations again!

a very special wedding album- just in time!

Goodness! i could hardly wait until i got this gorgeous album in the mail! I've been talking about how important these keepsakes are, and the value they have for your wedding day photos! I've wanted to design one for myself, but always get caught up in so many other things. i wanted to show you readers that i value these products too and am SO glad i got mine ordered (ahhh yes my wedding was almost 4 years ago) i'm so glad i did! i have looked through it at least 4 times today. None of these photos or edits are mine, They were all taken and edited by the talented and super awesome Paul Vincent

i tried a few new features that you can order too. i decided to spend the extra money because to me, it's completely worth it. i'll have this around for a long time and it shows the wedding day in a story-telling form so you can feel the whole day. i'm in love. 

the back of the book also has the graphite material, and i chose to show another photo, one of my faves. 

when i design an album, i try to stick to a lot of white space. It looks clean, modern, classic, and won't ever go out of style. instead of a lot of background, i want you to focus on the photographs. 

the paper i used is recycled paper option. you can see a little of the detail, the other kind i use is linen which has more of a canvas texture look to it. 

one of my absolute FAVORITE things about the company i use for albums is you can have a photograph go across the spread and it's all connected. Flush mounting album pages mean thick not bending pages, and the photograph can lay across the entire spread with no separation. below, i purposely designed one where my face was in the middle of the two pages, you can see it doesn't separate the photograph, and i just love it!! 

i have so enjoyed looking through these again and laughing at all the fun crazy moments. 

another spread that splits the photograph below but doesn't distract at all. 

I didn't photograph every spread, just most of them! :) i was too excited not to, plus family lives so far away.. had to show them somehow.. right!? i hope this helps you decide on one of these beauties, i couldn't be happier that i finally got mine done! 

details about my album- 

*10x10 album

*40 pages/ 20 spreads

*metallic photo cover/back cover +padded cover

*graphite fabric with black stitching for cover

*recycled paper


i shared Paul's website, but you can also find his work on Facebook. He did such a fantastic job, and i'm so happy he could photograph our wedding! Thank you Paul for these beautiful photographs that i'll cherish forever. i still am in love with them. 

Happy friday! now go have fun! 

Senior photography press printed book

Last week i showed a gorgeous press printed wedding album, and i couldn't help but show this press printed book i also offer! these are perfect products to show off your photographs in such a fun way! when i designed this book, i decided to use the shimmer paper, since it was senior photos and it matched Mikayla's personality and photos! 


This is an 8x8 book. A few differences in this book over the album is, the pages aren't quite as thick, they are bendable, they are designed in pages over spreads (this means there will not be one photo over two pages) It is the same type of padded hard cover, and lots of options to make it all your own (like the shimmer paper!) i had to order this one for my studio too! 


tipped the page above into the light to see a little shimmer. 


these books make such a fabulous piece to add at your open house graduation to show off lots of your photographs and show the story of your session. What's fantastic is, you get to pick out some of your favorites to show, rather than me picking them all so you love the images you get to flip through! 

If you are interested in a book and I've shot your session, you can still order! contact me or email for details and prices.
