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.

Introducing Celebration Sessions | Jacksonville family photographer

I have exciting news about a fresh offering here at Wishing Well Photography. I am introducing the Celebration Session, a specialized session lasting up to an hour. The specialty will change periodically, and new details will be provided when the new specialty starts.

The Fine Print: A $75 retainer is due at booking to reserve your date and is credited toward the $500. The retainer is non-refundable, but is transferable to a new date if rescheduling is necessary. The session covers up to four family members. Limited time frame: please contact for details.

Baby at 5 weeks | Jacksonville newborn photographer

I’ve photographed this warm family several times now, and it was a pleasure to photograph their newest addition. Little V is absolutely charming here at five weeks. She was wide awake most of the session: alert and curious about the world around her. She couldn’t resist falling asleep for a few pictures near the end of the session (so we got both awake and sleepy portraits). S family, congrats on your beautiful new baby!

I love these quiet moments of mom with new baby.

It was on the cool side that morning (so she stayed all dressed), and little V was perfectly content to hang out in the basket daydreaming.

It’s easy to see he’s going to be a great big brother!

Look at those precious baby cheeks.

She made all kinds of cute expressions.

The whole family.

6 days new | Jacksonville newborn photographer

This newborn is less than a week old here and is adorable with those plump baby cheeks. The weather was on the cool side, but we managed to get a couple quick outdoor pictures. He was a little angel, and toward the end of the session, woke up for some great eye contact.

One of the great things about Florida is that we sometimes get weather in the winter just warm enough to do a few newborn pictures outside. We had to work quickly, but I love the warm brown tones here.

Newborns love to smile as soon as I set down the camera for a moment, but I caught this gorgeous smile just in time.

Look at those sweet eyes.

Couple at Sawgrass | Ponte Vedra photographer

This thoughtful man gave a portrait session as a gift to his girlfriend, and they chose Sawgrass as a meaningful setting for their pictures. It was a foggy day, which added a pretty haze at the beach. It’s easy to see the love between these two, and I had a great time exploring Sawgrass with them.
