Thank you for visiting Liara Studios. It is my goal to provide the highest quality of imagery in the industry today. I take great strides to continue my education to keep up on the latest trends. I have been a working photographer for over a decade and am very involved in the industries most respected associations. I have earned my Degree of Education from the Florida Professional Photographers Association and will be earning my Degree of Photographic Excellence this summer at our state convention. At one time I owned the South East's largest wedding photography studio, completing up to 950 weddings a year, with 14 of the best documentary photographers the Tampa Bay Area had to offer. I am also a full time Professional Firefighter with over 18 years experience. I have a serious passion for both professions and enjoy the satisfaction I get from both.
Wedding photography is where I began my career over 12 years ago. I have traveled all over the state of Florida, across the country and abroad photographing couples most special day. It has been an amazing honor to have been selected for these destination weddings. Some of my most special adventures have included weddings in the Florida Keys, New Mexico, Costa Rica and the Bahamas. I would love for you to have you wedding day captured with only the style that I can provide. You will cherish your images for a lifetime.
Family Portraiture has become my passion. It originated from my wedding clients who eventually started families of their own. I have had the privilege of capturing the most intimate times of young families. It all starts with the maternity portrait and progressing the new born portrait. I have captured the first year through many milestones including the first steps and even the first time of sitting alone. I have also been given the opportunity to capture that very intimate time between a mother and her child during a moment of nursing.
I can't express how honored I am to be part of these very special moments in my client's lives.
