Beach Brothers | Ponte Vedra family photographer

This family was visiting Florida and wanted beach portraits, but we were worried about the threat of rain. Fortunately, the weather cooperated, and we were able to get beautiful pictures for them to remember their stay.

I love his baby grin.

No child can resist the magic of sand…

The snuggly and playful portraits are always my favorites…

Flower Field | Jacksonville family photographer

It was a pleasure photographing this warm family again, this time to celebrate the upcoming birth of a new sister. The mom dearly wanted to do her maternity portraits in a flower field, and this particular field blooms only for a few weeks every year. Fortunately, that timing coincided perfectly with her pregnancy, and we were able to get lovely portraits of her and her family among all the flowers.

I loved the flower accessories the mom brought. They add a special touch to go with the field.

The baby of the family is about to become a big sister…

This picture is one of my favorites.

Beach | Ponte Vedra family photographer

Beach photography is one of my favorites in the spring and summer months. We get such lovely colors in the sky, and each sky is a little different. This particular evening at a beach in Ponte Vedra was a perfect backdrop for this family’s portraits.

When I last saw this little boy, he wasn’t walking yet, but for this session he has learned to sprint–as toddlers do–at lightning speed with those little legs. But when he paused, looking over his shoulder, he had the sweetest smile. Photographing toddlers is always about the split-second treasure. His sister is also full of adventure and joy: I love her expression here as she jumps with the parasol.

And the beautiful family together.

Look at that grin… on the run! But a special shell stops him for a moment.

We’re so lucky here in Florida. After all these years, I still love looking at a beach sky at sunset.

Siblings | Saint Johns family photographer

I’ve been photographing this next family over four years at their home. They have an amazing back yard: perfect for portraits. I last saw this little girl when she was a newborn, and she’s turned into such an adorable toddler.

The big brother is both playful and easygoing.

And together, they make the best faces…

She’s so curious and alert, ready for adventures.

He makes swinging upside down seem effortless…

We were initially going to just photograph the kids, but we snagged a quick portrait of the whole family, too.

She’s a little Mommy’s Girl: so sweet! As the mother of two girls myself, seeing these pictures brings back fond memories of when my own daughters were so little.

Love | Jacksonville family photographer

This family truly knows how to make each other laugh. Not only are they full of energy and playfulness, but they are also full of love. The daughter was visiting with her husband, newly married, and it was an honor to capture a combination of couples portraits and pictures of them all together.

They know just how to be serious, and then how to just be themselves.

These two are so sweet together, and I wish them much joy in the days ahead.

These two have been together fifteen years, and still have the honeymoon glow.

She was a little worried about doing the dip, but she has such a natural grace.
