Beautiful light, sweet big brother and a beautiful momma. That is all you need for gorgeous Maternity Photography. I absolutely love maternity photoshoots and being able to capture an adorable big brother as well (who may or may not have stolen the show) makes it all even better. Maternity Photos are typically done between 32 and 34 weeks, so be sure not to wait to schedule your Maternity Portraits! This was a Maternity Mini and you can see all the awesomeness we still captur
I got to start my Friday off with a sweet little newborn photography session.... .. But, last weekend, I got to welcome this little man into the world less than 24 hours after his arrival. So sweet, so new and so perfect. Fresh 48 Photography sessions are quickly becoming a favorite and I am excited about how popular they have become as well. Those details of the first day with your little one quickly fade and are forgotten as you find a new normal with your little one at hom
I am so blessed to be able to watch so many little ones grow and change over their first year. Make sure to make it all the way to the bottom to see some flashbacks of favorites from our Maternity Photography session and Newborn Photography session together. Miss E has gotten so big, and was a happy, sweet baby girl despite the heat the morning of our session. So, make your Monday a little cuter with a few of my favorites from this Milestone Family Photography session near Ja
It's true. My website and most of my feed is filled with Mama's waiting on new lives, sweet little newborns, chunky babies and happy kiddos. But, every once in awhile I get lucky enough to a couples portrait session. As parents, we photograph our kids constantly. For much of life, our world revolves around their activities, school, etc... But to celebrate the love that started that family. To celebrate your marriage with a session while on vacation. To celebrate each other. T
Recently I have been SOOOOOO blessed with meeting some new little lives within hours of their entrance to this world. Fresh 48 Sessions are quickly becoming a BIG fave of mine (ok, let's be honest, anything dealing with a sweet little life is a fave). These, in Hospital Newborn Portrait sessions capture the details of those first hours we forget about so quickly. When family members are there, capturing moments with grandparents and siblings always makes it even more special.
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
It's not secret I LOVE St Augustine, FL. Just walking around always makes me feel like I am on a vacation. I also have been LOVING the gorgeous mamas to be I have been blessed enough to capture lately with their Maternity Portraits. So, Maternity Photos in St Augustine, FL??? I can hear the angels singing now. Yes, even a sunrise session for a non morning person is SOOO exciting when it's a Maternity Portrait session in my favorite city. So, make Friday even more Fri-Yay and
I've said it before and I will say it again. I LOVE my Watch Me Grow families. I love that I get to know them. Get to see their little one as they grow, change, reach new milestones and get adorable little personalities as they go through their first year. Maternity Portraits, Newborn Portraits and then all those milestones. I get to capture big smiles, sitting, crawling, laughing, little dimples, and chubby legs. Everything you love about your little one. I work to capture.
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
