Autumn, Samantha + Colleen | Jacksonville, FL Family Photographer

I got to shoot with these three beautiful ladies (three generations!) last week before we had the week of rain in Florida (I'm really not ready for the daily summer afternoon rain showers here - ugh)

You have seen Autumn and Samantha on my blog so many times at this point through the years and this time Autumn's beautiful mama, Colleen joined in. I love Autumn and consider her a dear friend. We both know each other so well now that we get a shoot done in less than twenty minutes. Rock stars. 

Love these gals and excited to share this session with you guys <3

Real Fit Duo | Ashley + Allison | Jacksonville Fitness Photographer

These two sweet girls have started a business and decided to become girl bosses and I am so incredibly excited for them on their new adventure! Allison is my fellow workout buddy and she is one of the most motivating and sweet people I know! I just met Ashley at their photo shoot but already love her and she is so unbelievably sweet! 

Knowing the excitement and struggle of starting up your own business I am beyond proud of these two for taking the leap and following their passion. They have already accomplished so much in a short amount of time for Real Fit Duo. Their company focuses on motivating and encouraging others to lead a happy and healthy lifestyle while also making group workouts (like booty camps!) fun and educating! 

They are still in the process of getting their website and branding done but in the mean time please support these two amazing gals and follow them on Instagram! @Realfitduo 

Ethan Is One! | Jacksonville, FL Child Photographer

This little man is ONE already! And it just so happens that I am blogging his one year session on his actual birthday today! I shot Ashley + John's maternity, Ethan's newborn session and a few sessions along the way as he grew and I can't believe a whole year has already gone by. Ethan is SO cute and sweet and his parents are the sweetest too. 

Love these guys and thank you for choosing me to be the one to capture your little man grow for his first year of life.

See Ethan's past sessions (even when he was still in the belly!)

Natalie + Brian Are Married! | May 7th 2016 | Downtown Jacksonville, FL Wedding Photographer

Natalie + Brian hired me without actually meeting with me since they lived out of state. We only had phone meetings and emails leading up to their day - so when we finally met and shot their engagement session and wedding in the same week I was so excited to finally get to hang out with them in person! We bonded quickly and I was constantly laughing with these guys. These two are so cool and relaxed and they had an epic day time wedding if I do say so myself. A morning ceremony followed by a lunch crowd that breaks it down on the dance floor for hours like their crew is the BEST. 

I am so excited about sharing their sneak because we got to shoot all over downtown and had literally the most perfect weather and light this day. They also rented the coolest bungalow in Riverside (I was obsessed). I highly recommend more people renting Air-bnb's instead of hotels! It's so much more cozy and way more cool stuff and locations for photogs to work with ;)

Special thanks to all of the vendors who helped make their wedding day happen!
