Memorial Day Memories-Jacksonville Family Photographer

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend and thinking of all of the men and women who sacrificed for us to be able to have the freedoms we have. This holiday weekend was a chance for the S famliy to all be together despite the multiple flight delays it took to get them all here! They are such an amazing family and it was such a pleasure to capture this special time.

Young Love- Jacksonville Family Photographer

In a few short days I will be starting my next life-venture as a full time photographer. The past year I have worked at desk job at a mortgage company. I have met so many wonderful people and had great times that I will never forget. Marissa was one of the very first friends I made there. We met the week after she got married. We immediately bonded, because like her, I found my love and married him at a very young age. It was refreshing to see young love and hear stories of early married life. I will miss our talks, our laughs and our shared passion for Twilight...lol

killing time- Jacksonville Family Photographer

My sister is due to give birth any day now so we have made sure to stay close to home in case we get the call...so when I have free time, I grab a kid and start clicking away. Bella is at a great age where she fully cooperates...exhibit A:

Preston, on the other hand...not so much. But I did manage to snap a picture of him watching Bella while she was doing her pictures...exhibit B:

You are Invited to a Portrait Party-Jacksonville Family Photographer

Photobucket

OK, let's focus on YOU!
Sometimes we get so busy snapping pictures of our families or our friends that when we need a picture of just ourselves, the choices are slim. Let's solve that! Please join me for a portrait party June 4th, 5th and 6th where it's all about you.

Some ideas for your new fabulous self-portrait:

facebook profile
frame it as a present for your spouse or parent
dating website profile
scrapbooking

Enjoy snacks and wine...bring your friends and RELAX...you deserve it! You will have a mini photo-shoot and receive 2 edited images emailed to you within one week. Each photo-shoot will only take about 10 min or less (I guess that depends on how much wine you drink...lol). Each person will also be entered to win a gift certificate for a free sitting fee (value $125). Also, if you choose to book a full session for a future date at the party then your Portrait Party fee will be waived!

There are 3 sign up sessions, you can drop in any time during the session you choose. The party will be held at my home & I'll send you directions when you reserve your session time. The cost is $25 per person.

RSVP by May 28th | call: 904*708*3864 or email: updegraffphotography@yahoo.com
