Hello, it's Blake!
Oh what a cliché it is to say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but let's face it, clichés exist for a reason, and I really do believe a picture is actually worth a thousand words (give or take a few.)
I'm a freelance photographer based in Pensacola, FL specializing in portrait, lifestyle and stylistic photography. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in advertising from the University of North Florida I came back home to start my full-time gig in marketing. That doesn't stop me from enjoying one of my main sources of dopamine–photography!
I only have one rule during our session and that is to have FUN. I know a few tricks of the trade to get you smiling, laughing, and maybe a little bit serious for that inner-model you've always wanted to be. For family shoots, I'll bring a bag of Skittles and a Mountain Dew to get the kids totally wound up to get at least ONE smile out of them (I'm only half-joking.)
Other things I like? Cooking, watching the sunset on the beach with my friends, day trips, a music playlist for every mood, a binge-worthy docu-series, rainy Sundays, and the largest size of iced coffee I can order at the local coffee shop.
All kidding aside, I really do love taking pictures and I hope to cater to your specific needs while showcasing my artistic style. Have I sold you yet? Let's take pictures together.
