The McMeekin Family | Jacksonville, FL Family Photographer

I am so excited I have gotten to work with the McMeekin's so much in the past few months! One more session to go for their Christmas mini in November.

Little Brentley was a shy little guy at his sister's newborn session last month but has totally warmed up to me now and is such a ham, I love him! 
This family makes my heart warm and I'm so excited to photograph them so much recently. 

In honor of all the pumpkins and cute kiddos below, I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Halloween weekend!

The Galloway Family | Jacksonville, FL Family Photographer

I met Heather a little over two years ago when I was shooting a wedding in California that she was in. This wedding was one I will never forget and every single person was so amazingly welcoming to me. The bride and groom were one of my favorites to this day, the wedding wedding party (including Heather) were my new besties within 10 minutes of me landing and getting off the plane and the family were just wonderful. It was literally a 48 hour experience of a lifetime with so much bonding and friendships formed. So now that Heather and her hubby, Mike have their little one Issac and live in Jacksonville - I was ecstatic when they wanted to do a session with me. Reunited and it felt like no time had passed honestly! Their little man was the happiest wiggle worm you will ever meet and I absolutely loved shooting their session in beautiful downtown Jacksonville. Enjoy their little sneak preview ;)

Grayson | Jacksonville Newborn Photographer

Sweet Grayson was such a cooperative little man during his session! I was impressed with how much he put up with me moving him in different positions, baskets and hats. At 17 days old he was perfect during his session and it was such a joy to finally meet his mom and dad too. After a few months of emailing with his mama preparing for his session, Grayson came into this world three weeks early so when I got the email from Melissa saying he was already here, it was go time and we were having his session that following Friday. I absolutely adored meeting these three, so amazing to work with and so sweet. I can't wait for their fall family session coming soon!

Ava is Four! | Jacksonville Child + Family Photographer

It feels like just yesterday I was shooting Ava's three year pictures and a year has somehow already passed. I have literally photographed this sweet girl since she was a few days old, through the first year and then every year to follow. Then her brother Zac came along and I documented his first year. Now baby Mia is on the way. I'm SO excited for Michelle and Francis. They have become such good friends to me and literally watching their family grow and shooting every session I do for them is an honor and a joy. 

It's finally in these pictures of her at four years old I see a little girl emerging and she is such a beauty and a goofball. 

I hope you enjoy her sneak preview as much as I enjoyed shooting and editing them.

Eileen + James | Jacksonville, FL Engagement + Wedding Photographer

Eileen + James had one of those sessions where everything was just perfect. Gorgeous light, perfect weather with no humidity whatsoever + a beautiful couple so in love having a blast. I loved working with these two and I am so beyond excited to shoot their wedding on March 7th 2015 at the gorgeous River House in St. Augustine! If their engagement session is the preview of whats to come, I can't wait to see how their wedding day images turn out. They are both so loving and fun with each other - it's a joy to see and I'm honored to be apart of their story at their photog.
