The Joy of Love Day 14-Jacksonville Family Photographer

Happy Valentines Day!!! The kids and I had a lot of fun working on Valentines Day gifts for their teachers and friends this weekend!

Bella picked a really cool project we found here. What kid won't love a scratch off valentine???

We found the teacher's gift idea here. Fortune cookies dipped in chocolate...yum-o!

For our special celebration today, I picked the kids up after school and surprised them with a trip to the movies to see Gnomeo and Juliet...then we ate Papa Johns Pizza, Red Velvet cake and sparkling grape juice by the fire...then finished it up with a Wii bowling competition...a perfect Valentines Day with the whole family.

Day 14: Wedding Band...photograph your wedding bands.

The Joy of Love Day 13-Jacksonville Family Photographer

We are a family of routines...Mike was after all, in the Navy for 5 years :) We have had the same bedtime routine for years. The kids go to their rooms at 8 and get to read quietly for 30 min, then we tuck them in. It gives them some time to wind down until the lights are turned off. A few weeks ago, I picked up this wonderful new daily devotion book for the kids. We have incorporated it into the bedtime routine...and the kids won't let us skip a day...which makes me very proud!

Day 13: Routine...photograph your loved ones and the daily routines they follow.

The Joy of Love Day 10-12-Jacksonville Family Photographer

Mike was away on business for a couple of days so I'm playing catch up a little on my assignments :)

Day 10: Space...photograph where your loved one loves to spend time at home.

Mike grills almost every single the rain, the cold, day and night. I handle the inside dishes, he takes care of the outside stuff. I don't even know how to turn on the's entirely his domain!

Day 11: Dreams...photograph what your loved one dreams of doing.

We are still in our very first home. We talk about building our dream home all the time. In fact, we have a dream home folder. We aren't going to rush it...we want it to be everything we want it to be.

Day 12: The Eyes...photograph the windows to your loved one's soul :)

the Joy of Love Day 7-Jacksonville Family Photographer

The weather here is HORRIBLE!!! It has been gloomy and rainy all day! Today's prompt required a little planning ahead since it involved people we don't live with. Thank goodness my Dad is a sport and stopped by on his way home from work. Since Preston and my Dad normally play outside together and today that wasn't an option, Preston spoke up and requested his Papa play some cards with him...excuse the quality, we had to be indoors at night with artificial light...ugh!!!! But I still love the pics! He is really lucky to have both sets of loving grandparents still alive to spend time with.

Day 7: Generations-photograph your loved one with their grandparent

The Joy of Love Day 6-Jacksonville Family Photographer

Only one picture for this was hard enough trying to get one :) My subject for this was Bella...and it just so happens that her brother was who she adores, although he does NOT seem to return the sentiment...having them sit by each other to watch the rain could have gone one of two ways...I thought he might attempt to throw her in the rain, lol. Instead, they just sat there peacefully and watched the rain...who would have thought???

Day 6: Who they Love- photograph who your loved one adores.

I had to be careful on this prompt...I didn't want to bring up any sore subjects with my I decided to use Preston as my subject, lol. Most of the time I LOVE that he is just like me...except he does this too, just like me...he is a nail biter...and it drives me crazy!!!

Day 5: Love to Hate...what does your loved one do that drives you Nuts!
