I know, it's usually #MaternityMonday around here, but oddly I haven't had a Maternity Portrait session in a couple weeks (don't worry, I have one tonight, so we are safe, lol) BUT, I have had some adorable First Birthday Portraits that I know will brighten up this gloomy, rainy Monday.... (I mean more than the fact that school is back in session Praise the Lord!) So, keep scrolling and see some favorites of this First Birthday session from this Jacksonville Fl Family Photogr
It's the Friday, before Mother's Day. As mom's, it doesn't take much to get us all watery eyed over our kids. Even if all day long they have driven us to the brink of insanity, a little cuddle and "I love you mommy" takes it all away. Being a Mom is HARD. Whether you have one kid, 3 kids or 5 kids (or more) it's hard. It's hard because we LOVE SO MUCH. It's hard because we teach, we discipline, we love, we calm, we worry. All Day Long. My girls are older and this hasn't stopp
Last week, I shared on Instagram a back of camera shot I did at the train station while we were waiting on the train. I titled it, "your daily does of, Oh, look at that light. Sit here so I can take a photo." It's the life of my girls. Seriously, sometimes they rebel and I get nothing, but often at least one of them says, "Ok." So, what do you need for good light? Literally, ONE GOOD WINDOW. That's it. If you only have one room in your home with one good window, put their toy
I can never stop gushing about my Watch Me Grow families. Featured today, is an adorable little man who I was lucky enough to capture while his parents were waiting on him... and of course, the sweetest Newborn Portraits once he made his arrival into the world (a very short time after. His momma texted me to let me know he had arrived before I was even done editing their gorgeous Maternity portraits!) So, I was excited to see just how much this little man had grown. Even thou
Before the holidays I was lucky enough to meet up with a brand new family for a Family Portrait session. The sunset was amazing. We played, chased, looked for fish and had a wonderful easy going session which always turns into the best possible images. So, warm up inside and check out some of my favorite images from the Schlag Family session!

It's no secret I love Lifestyle Portraits. Whether for Newborn Photos, Family Photos or in this case, a beautiful 6 month Milestone session. I was blessed enough to capture Miss C for her 48 hour Session (see below) We then met up to capture her beautiful, in home, Lifestyle Newborn Portrait session. So, when her mom contacted me about a Lifestyle session for her Half Birthday (6 Month Milestone session) I was thrilled! She and her brother did wonderful. Sweet smiles, silly g
"Baby: A little bit of heaven, sent down to earth" Over the past year I found where my heart is. I found the style of photography that calls to me. I gave up on trying to be other photographers and copy their style. And I couldn't be happier.
Each and every Lifestyle Newborn session makes me happy. During the session, editing the session...looking back at the images later on. I love it. Every time now. Sure, I see areas I need to grow and better myself. But I no longer feel
"A year is 365 days of your story...make it a good one" I can't believe it's time to say goodbye to 2017. I have been blessed to photograph so many amazing families. To capture the laughter, giggles and love.
From newborns to silly toddlers and fun teenagers, I have photographed it all. And enjoyed every minute of it.
So, as we prepare to say, goodbye, write our resolutions, choose our "word of the year" or whatever your traditions are, I wanted to say Thank you to all
