Hello, I'm Madeline
I am a Florida native, and call Naples my home. I’ve been shooting portraits for about 10 years now, and I’ve always had a passion for photography; even as a child. I remember my mom buying me those single use Kodak cameras that you would take to Eckards (yes, Eckards!) to get them developed. And ever since then, I’ve been so drawn to the idea of capturing moments you can’t relive. I love being able to look back and remember an exact moment in time and being able to keep it forever.
Yes, I'm even a natural redhead
I’m based in southwest Florida, but you’ll find me adventuring all over Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas. My boyfriend and I and our German Shepherd/Great Dane, Thor, and our *new* addition a Harlequin Great Dane, Jack frequent the Florida Keys, one day we’d love to actually live there permanently. But for now, you can find me loving life on the dog beach, kayaking and adventuring through all of the local plant nurseries for new plants. 52 houseplants and counting! I love to travel, this year we’re going to Asheville, North Carolina & Alaska, Colorado and maybe even New Orleans. I’m slowly but surely crossing off all 50 states off my traveling bucket list.
When I’m not playing photographer, my boyfriend and I build wedding arches for couples and vendors around Florida, it gives us a little more time together, and we get to have fun with it! I also volunteer at the Naples Humane Society and Women’s Shelter here in town.
If there’s anything I love about my own personal photography--it’s that I’m not one for stiff poses and awkward silences, I live for making my clients as comfortable and as excited as possible. It’s one thing to snap a photo, but it’s another to be able to tell a story, make a connection and capture special moments. Your special moments.

Madeline was fantastic! We really enjoyed working with her. She met all of our needs and really captured the moments that meant most to us. We are beyond happy with our experience and photos from Madeline. We are so glad we booked her!

She is incredibly professional and she knows what she's talking about! She has intentionality and experience, and truly cares. The photoshoot was effortless on our part.
Dani & Chris // Ft. Myers Beach
We had the best experience! My husband and I decided to elope and had a last minute change of location which was not as beautiful as the pictures had shown but Madeline has the best creative eye. Despite the location, she got the best most authentic pictures of us! The all around experience was outstanding and we look forward to working with her again in the future.

Highly recommend!!! She drove all the way out to our favorite marina and she took such great pictures!!! Far exceeded what we had in mind, we are super grateful we found her! She was so very kind and made us comfortable. I thought I'd be happy if I had even just a couple pictures I liked for my save the dates, but I can't even choose which I like best because there are so many amazing photos!
Madeline is a wonderful photographer who puts her all into her business. The session I had was easy, and she made me feel so comfortable! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer. Her editing style looks amazing with light and she knows how to capture the right moments.

My husband and I did a shoot with Madeline and she was wonderful to work with! She didn't just direct us to do poses, but she guided us with ease and listened to our suggestions. We got some amazing shots, she's so sweet and her excitement and passion for her art really shows in her work. She's one of the best photographers I know in the area!

After searching online for a local photographer, I came across Madeline for my engagement photos! We shot on the beach and it was great! She was so easy to work with and the images came out so wonderful! Would highly recommend.
