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.

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!

This is the family session that literally weathered a storm, and it was worth it!

Megan had a bit of a hard time finding a session date, which is a common problem as we get closer to the holidays. And after daylight savings, there’s even more difficulty as sessions start at 4 pm, which feels so early.

So, when the beautiful day turned stormy, we had to push through. We managed to get in some pictures before the storm and some more after.

You’ll notice the difference vibe and color, which was pretty cool to us!

So, I’m going to try really hard to not fan-girl this high school senior. I just think the world of her.

Emma will be graduating Williston High School in 2021, and the world better watch out. She’s got the trifecta: brains, beauty, and grit. She’s got a limitless future ahead of her.

Her mom found this hidden gem of a location, Emma was skeptical, but checked it out anyway. And boy was she thrilled. And however happy Emma was, I was a hundred times happier. That place doesn’t even look like Florida! Ironically, during our consultation meeting, I was off-handedly complaining that our area of Florida is so flat and finding even a hill is hard. Well, God must have been listening and threw me a bone!

Sometimes we felt like we were out west, sometimes we imagined we were in Ireland. Everywhere we turned was beauty and had texture and HILLS!

On top of the epic location, we had a beautiful day. The weather was perfect, not too hot at all, with a nice breeze. Emma was smart and had a hairstyle that would blow perfectly in the breeze and still look good. Speaking of Emma’s choices…. This girl! Ya’ll, she had everything planned to a tee! It was a joy to work with her and her outstanding style. She was so prepared that I’ve asked her to be a guest host on my blog and share her advice on how to prep for a senior session. I’ll share it as soon as it’s ready!

She was ready to go from the gate (literally). We got into the gate and the cows were there, and she went right into model posing level 10!  And it only got better. If you’ve read any of my past blog posts, you’ll know that I love (LOVE) a client who trusts me and is willing to try anything. Sometimes we hit it out of the park, and sometimes we don’t, but a try-it-anyway attitude is a characteristic I appreciate so much.

As you can see from this huge gallery, due to her preparedness, ambition, and excitement, we were able to get a HUGE variety of images. I am beyond thrilled with the gallery delivery and am on the edge of my seat excited to share it with you all!

Emma, (okay, I’ll fan-girl for a moment) You are a light! Your kindness is so well balanced with your grit. You know how to get what you want, and you do it with grace. I truly look forward to seeing you grow, and taking this world by storm. You’ve got it all ahead, and your future couldn’t be brighter. I wish you many many blessings, and much reward for your hard work. XOXO

This momma to be was radiant in blue! She knew exactly what to wear to her maternity session! She is sure proud of all her boys.

I’ve had the honor to watch Ashlee grow into the wonderful woman and mom she is! And her boys are sure blessed to have her. And how adorable is she with that belly!

Ashlee booked a simple Petite Maternity Session, because she knew her boy would be, well a boy, and 30 minutes was more than enough. As you can see we tried to keep up with him, but he’s a quick little dude. What I loved, was that mom and just laughed it off. You can’t have high expectations of little ones. You really can’t predict them (well you can predict them being wild!). And you really have to let them have their way.  And you have to laugh it off! They aren’t trying to be bad, they just don’t want to do what we want to do!

We had a great evening, with the light we wanted. We had a cool front the couple of days before, but the weather decided to hit back into the 90’s for us this day. We hid all the sweat pretty well!

Corey & Ashlee, It is a joy to be with ya’ll and I am humbled and grateful that you choose me year after year! I can’t wait to get my hands on the baby!

Hold on to your hats for this family session! This supremely fun and free family totals 10 humans!

I had a ball with this laid back family. There were no rules, no crazy expectations, and best of all, mom wanted the kids to be completely themselves. It made for a good time, with an unexpected and happy ending.

Welcome to the Morgan Family Petite Photo Session!

We get so much out of a 30 minute session, and truthfully that’s about the limit for a toddler!

And this toddler! Oh my! She was a bundle of joy and excitement. She was eager to show off her outfit and loved taking pictures…. for about 7 minutes. Then she was ready to run! Good thing 7 minutes is all I need to get that smile-at-the-camera picture. Then we played! I sure got in my steps keeping up with her!

Then this momma. She was radiantly proud of her family, and she had every right. They are a fun bunch who love to love each other. It was a joy to watch her smile get so big as she watched her babies smile and giggle!

See for yourself!
