My name is Carlie and I'm a family and portrait photographer based in South Tampa. My love affair with photography began when I was 13 years old and my Father lent me his Minolta for a school art trip. The camera was originally a gift from my Mom for their first anniversary. After years of enjoying his Minolta my father passed it onto me and since then it has not left my hands. I’ve always been very nostalgic and have held onto every little memory, no matter how mundane it may be. I believe that life is full of memories and meaningful moments that must be kept alive. I have held onto heirlooms and keepsakes that have been passed down from generation to generation, that I plan on passing onto my children. Photography allows me to create lasting memories and mementos for you and your family to enjoy and pass onto your future generations.
