About Me


A Fort Myers girl through and through (4th generation to be exact), I received my BFA in Photography and Digital Imaging from Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. Soon after graduation, I moved to Chicago where I taught Digital Photography and Photoshop, while serving as the Director of the Chicago Photography Center. A few years ago, I returned to my hometown to be near my family and to start my own little tribe. I live with my Boyfriend Todd, our boys Camden & Hudsen, pup Reese and two kitties (Riley and Ophelia).

Love: Sushi, Being Poolside and a good Strong Coffee!
Not so much: Spiders, Haters, and bad hair days (which seems like always lately!)

What exactly is Adventure Newborn Photography?!
It’s a totally immersive outdoor newborn photography session. We live in sunny Southwest Florida, so why waste this gorgeous sunlight by being stuck inside? I love the outdoors, and I firmly believe that a little fresh air and vitamin D is vital to our littles from the very beginning.

What if the weather is bad?
If we can’t hold your Newborn session outdoors, do not worry! I have a small home studio or I can easily come to you a we can create beautiful memories right in your very own home. And I totally understand a messy home (I have two boys), but never fear! In-home sessions are totally focused on you and your little not the chaos of baby gear.

Vaccinations and Cleanliness
I am up to date on all vaccinations including the TDAP. And for outdoor sessions, I wash my hands when I arrive, and I carry a bottle of hand sanitizer. I have newborn first aid and safety training.

What makes me qualified to do this?
I’ve been handling newborns my entire life, from my own siblings to baby sitting and now for over 5 years with clients. I have my Bachelors of Fine Art in Photography and Digital Imaging and have been shooting professionally for over 10 years. I taught photography and Photoshop for 3 years at a school and I’ve taught privately one-on-one since 2010. I am registered to do business in Lee County Florida and have a full coverage insurance policy through RV Nuccio & Associates.
