~ Get To Know ~

DAKOTA

I was brought up as a true military brat who was born but not raised in Illinois. I moved every two-three years of my life starting in New York, New Mexico, Germany, South Carolina, Panama Canal, New Jersey, Florida, Ohio, Mississippi, Colorado and now back to Florida. I truly felt when living in Tampa as teen this would be a place I could call home. Palm trees and flamingos are just the best two things in the world!! I have a college degree in business and also acquired my cosmetology license in 2013. I found my passion for photography after giving birth to my first born Bentley. I went full time after the birth of my son Zephyr. I started my company Modern Newborn Photography five years ago and has grown to be such a great success. I just felt my heart itching to be more involved with the mamas I work with. So starting my woman focused brand in boudoir photography I am excited to play sexy dress up, makeup, crank the music and of course sip on some champagne. I’m so excited to hear your story and make you feel like a goddess!
