9 months and so Happy-Jacksonville Family Photographer

Miss E turned 9 months and we documented it with a little trip to Fernandina. Her smile is infectious!! She (as well as Mom, Dad and Grandma) was such a trooper. It pretty much rained on us the entire time...welcome to Florida's idea of winter! Here is a little sneak peek:

Two week old stunner-Jacksonville Newborn Photographer

I'm always a little worried when a baby comes into the studio older than a few gets harder to get them into that deep sleep...but Mr. L came on his 2 week birthday and seriously rocked his session. He not only was a model sleeper, his eyes were hypnotizing when he was awake and I love a good awake baby shot!!! Welcome to the world little man:

Walk in the Park-Jacksonville Family Photographer

I get asked a lot about what to wear to a family session...get ready for a great example!!! I joined the beautiful P family at the park for some play time. Aren't the colors perfect! And it helps with an over-the-top cute toddler in tow ;) Dad is in the military and will be leaving for a bit soon, I know he will love looking at these while he is missing his two lovely ladies back at home. Here is a sneak peek:

Family Tree-Jacksonville Family Photographer

My first time to Treaty Oak was this weekend...and I've lived here my whole life. It certainly exceeded my expectations! What a perfect area for a photo shoot. Of course, it only helped that I was photographing one of the cutest families around. You can tell from every shot that they are so much fun to be around and that they actually enjoy each other!!! Here is a little sneak peek:

Brave Mama-Jacksonville Maternity Photographer

I seriously have the best clients around. We had scheduled this maternity shoot earlier in the week when it looked like the weather would be the week went on, the rain decided to pop up on picture day. The clouds loomed over all day but rain never came...that is until the minute she arrived for the shoot! I was trying to hide my complete stress-attack as I had planned mostly outside shots when she told me a little rain wouldn't stop her! Um, yes!!!! While it was coming down pretty hard we did some studio shots but then I grabbed 2 umbrellas and we hit the park next door. She never flinched...she just nailed every shot! She is amazingly beautiful and I am so excited to meet her daughter in a few weeks!!!

Celebrating Baby Owen-Jacksonville Family Photographer

Last weekend my Mom and I threw my sister a baby shower for her little Owen who is due in a few short weeks. We were on a tight budget so we opted to make a lot of the decorations ourselves. It was held at the beautiful Palencia Club and themed around the invitations created by the very talented Whimsy Whimsical. The cake was of course made by my favorite baker in the whole world, Love & Sugar Kisses. The goody bags on everyone's plate were filled with my sister's favorite candy, maple nut goodies!

Since I was hostess, I didn't take too many pictures during the shower but here are a few I took before everyone arrived. I'm a little sad that I don't have any more parties to plan for a while but really, really excited to be meeting my new nephew soon!
