Ready for some serious family photography eye candy? These people are so good looking, and the location on their property is what photographers dreams are made of.

We had to reschedule their session due to bad weather, and boy am I glad we did. We had beautiful blue skies, with even more beautiful golden light.

Enjoy!

Kyle and Jessica’s love story began on January 15, 2015, and they were quickly engaged on March 6th 2015. Jessica said, “When you know, you know.”

They made it through a rocky first day (blown tire, she thought he stood her up), so that must have been a good sign! Since then they have had many good dates and genuinely just love to hang out with each other. He says she’s a great mom, and that she’s beautiful and sweet. She says she loves how hard he works for their family, and respects him for his honesty. They both share a beautiful passion for raising their son.

Their Wedding Day was more than perfect! I knew it would be when Jessica came to our wedding prep meeting with a binder, planner, and lists.  A woman after my own type-a heart.

Seriously though, she planned so many perfect details. I just love her simple yet country-elegant style. From the heirloom fur shawl to the chandeliers in the reception barn. She really brought elegance to a modest wedding.

January brought us so much gloomy weather this year, and while it was a bit overcast, it was beautiful weather. The perfect amount of cloud cover with brightness, and it made for a comfortable evening for all the guests.

Jessica and Kyle, I was honored to be a part of your day, and so glad to deliver you images you will cherish forever!

When a well respected family photographer asks you to do their family pictures (again), first you do a little dance, then you start worrying about doing a stellar job.

Well, these sweet people made my job very, very easy. Momma found the perfect location, and we rolled through the session with snuggles, laughs, and some hugs! These adorable kiddos are equal parts sugar & spice, and I just love being in their company!

Be sure to check out Megan at Halcyon Days Photography. She is a very talented, Gainesville based photographer.

Perfection is impossible but preparedness makes a world of difference!

 

 

Preparing for your session is essential to making sure you have the images you want. After booking your session there are a few very important things you must do!

LOCATION

Location is everything and sets the tone for the entire session. Finding a location with variety and character is likely the most important part! No matter what type of session, the setting is going to be extremely important to the outcome. Scouting a location and knowing the options it offers for your photos can help enhance your images and make them more personal!

WARDROBE

After deciding on a location, planning outfits accordingly is also extremely important. You want your choices to match one another (location and outfits) to help your photos look more polished. Take into consideration a change in lighting, instances when you want to be barefoot, and times when a certain accessory can change an image for the better! Don’t be afraid of textures and pops of color, this helps set your images apart! Any personal items or props that you may want to incorporate, don’t hesitate to bring. This can include things like jewelry, hats, jackets (letterman, etc.), awards and even a unique chair. It’s important to remember that these images are completely custom to you and should represent things you like!

ACCESSORIES

After deciding on a location, outfits, and props and/or accessories, hair and makeup details become just as important. Try to focus on making hair and makeup choices that will last throughout the entire session. Know what works for you and what is going to hold best (especially in the Florida heat😉). Practicing your hair and makeup before your session can help you better understand what you want and things you may want to change!

CONFIDENCE

Lastly, confidence is key in all things, but especially in your session. Don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone to help achieve the images you want! Trust me, they are lots of fun to look at afterwards! Find images you may want to replicate and be willing to try new things. After all, this is all about YOU!

 

At the end of it all, the preparation will be worth the hassle for your outstanding images!

I knew all along that Meagan was going to totally rock Dallas’ One Year / Gladwell Family portrait session, and yet she still amazed me! This super talented, hard working momma juggled all the balls that day to pull this one off. She’s spends all day, every day raising little people, both at work and home, and she’s loved by so many!

And just look at her results!

Sweet kiddos who I can’t get enough of and would love to put in my pocket and take home with me. Of course, let’s all give dad a big huge nod… all his girls adore him, and he obviously will do anything for them, including sitting in front of a flowered teepee in his front yard!

Speaking of their front yard! I could have stayed there forever. They have an absolutely gorgeous view.

So that’s enough of me gushing over this sweet, kind, funny, and stunningly beautiful family!

Now, enjoy some eye candy courtesy of a momma who knows how to celebrate!

Here is the newborn baby session where I begrudgingly admit that I am not a baby-whisperer. I tried and tried to get Ashlee her sleepy baby, posed, wrapped images, but baby K had his own plans. This little guy was so aware of everything, and made it clear to me that he was in charge.

So we switched gears. I pulled out the bed, put K in his sleeper, and let them all be themselves. I.e. lifestyle. And I think it’s beautiful.
