Beach & Flowers | Jacksonville & St. Augustine family photographer

I’m still playing catchup on my blog from the spring, so here are three more beautiful families.

I’ve photographed this first family three times now, and they’re always such a pleasure to work with. They know how to have fun, be playful, and just truly enjoy life and each other. For this session, they also brought both sets of grandparents to join them in the portraits.

These siblings are full of laughter, and we were blessed with gorgeous colors at one of my favorite beaches in Ponte Vedra.

They asked to do a family stack, and although I was worried the littlest one might not like it, he didn’t mind in the least bit. I still marvel that we got the stacking picture so easily with such such great, natural smiles from everyone.

One of my favorite extended family pictures… if the tiniest family member keeps running off, flip him upside down!:)

This next family is also a return client, and I’ve enjoyed seeing her family grow (I did maternity pictures for her last). When we went to the park, there were some beautiful blue flowers in bloom that were the perfect complement to their blue outfits.

Love that little tongue sticking out (classic baby!) and his big sister’s easy grin.

This next family drove all the way from Gainesville for a session with me. It was a pleasure working with them, and I loved the little mermaid outfit the mom brought for her baby.

Aaah, I’m dying here. That mermaid outfit on that last little baby girl is so cute! I love it:) Each one of these sessions are so unique and beautifully done. I love how natural your posing is. Each family just looks like they are having a blast.

Oh my goodness…these are all just so perfect! I love the one in the first set where everyone is stacked on top of each other. So much fun! And I love the vibrant colors in the second set (the one of both kids with mom is my favorite!) And the last set is just gorgeous! What a cute little mermaid!

New Pricing | Jacksonville & Saint Augustine Family Photographer

I’m happy to announce that I’m following my passion and now specializing in family, children, and maternity portraiture. I no longer offer newborn photography, but I offer portraits for babies starting at three months old. My pricing has also changed a little and is effective for sessions booked on or after May 1, 2014.

Spring | Jacksonville & Saint Augustine family photographer

Spring is upon us, and it’s been wonderful to bring the pretty blooms into portraits. As usual, I have catching up to do on my blog .:) To start with (more to come), here are pictures from a maternity session and two family sessions to enjoy.

This maternity session features a lovely mother-t0-be expecting her first child.

We were lucky to have such a lush background of azaleas in bloom: the perfect complement to her stunning smile.

This family is so full of warmth and was a pleasure to photograph.

I love that baby grin…

This next session was for a return client. I last saw this adorable boy as a baby. It’s always fun to watch my clients’ children grow!

Just look at those stunning eyes…

Wow! These are gorgeous. I love that very first maternity shot. You have the most gorgeous locations to work with, don’t you!? Amazing!

Shannon Stroubakis - May 1, 2014 - 10:50 am

So gorgeous! I love how you expose your images to showcase the beauty of the sky and get deep rich colours. That’s crazy talent!

Claudette - May 1, 2014 - 8:31 pm

Beautiful light! I love how you got such cute expression from everyone!

April O'Hare - July 18, 2014 - 2:06 pm

Again, 3 incredible sessions! I really love that silhouette shot on the beach of the pregnant mama. I’m loving the pretty colors!

Three Families | Jacksonville & Saint Augustine family photographer

I’ve been having so much fun with my clients this year, and in fact, 2014 promises to be a busy one. I’m currently booking in May, so please reserve your dates early.:)

And now on to more catching up on my blog with three more beautiful families…

This first family has been coming to me for the past four years, and it’s always a pleasure. I love how they know just how to make each other laugh!

Next up, I enjoyed meeting this family and their adorable little boy. Doesn’t he have the sweetest smile?

For this third family, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing them for two years now. They’re always so full of warmth.

More Families | Saint Augustine and Jacksonville Family Photographer

I still have catching up to do, and here are three more lovely families. Enjoy!

These girls were adorable and will soon have another sibling.

I’ve been taking portraits of these cute boys for three years now, and I love getting to watch them grow! We visited one of my favorite Jacksonville parks.

Another little charmer; this time in St. Augustine… this girl has such a sweet smile.

Liz Campbell - February 7, 2014 - 4:35 pm

Oh my, they are all so lovely! The little girls talking to Mommy’s belly and the boy with the raised eyebrow just killed me! Love them all!!

Kate - February 8, 2014 - 2:09 pm

What a precious family! I love that first group with the girls on the fantastic sofa!

Kristen - February 8, 2014 - 5:03 pm

Lucky you! So many adorable clients! Can those two little sisters be any cuter! The little boys are super sweet! I love the one of the little girl sitting on the step! What a doll!

Shannon Stroubakis - February 9, 2014 - 12:05 pm

Your work really captures the expressions and spirit of childhood, I love these!

Melissa Klein - February 9, 2014 - 2:54 pm
