Jacksonville Children’s Photographer

About a month ago I had the opportunity to spend a Saturday photographing a whole bunch of adorable kiddos as part of a fundraiser for a family going through what most of us would consider out worst nightmare.  In May 2016 4 year old Addison was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia.  This sweet girl has been in and out of the hospital time and again over the past 9 months yet she and her family continue to have the brightest smiles and most amazing attitudes.

A little over a year ago I lost my best friend to cancer.  Throughout her battle I would have given anything to take away the fear, the pain, the sickness…anything to help her and her family.  Unfortunately, the reality is that nothing can take those things away.  They’re part of the nasty ugly journey through cancer.  What I did see through her battle though was that money made a difference.  It didn’t make the cancer go away or the fear or the pain.  However, it did help alleviate the stress of lost income, additional childcare needs, prepared meals, and healthcare costs not covered by insurance.  The money that was sent to my friend and her family allowed them a certain amount of peace so that they could focus on the incredible task at hand.

If you have time today take a minute and get to know Addy and her amazing family.  And if you have a few dollars to spare, consider joining them in the fight of their lives.

This birth is a perfect example of the saying “life’s what happens when you’re busy making plans.”  Very little about this sweet girl’s birth went according to her mom’s plans.  Nevertheless, thanks to a supportive husband and an incredible doula/midwife team, she was able to have exactly the birth she wanted.  Erica (mom) made plans to have Fiona in a birth tub at the UF Birth Center, but due to her water breaking and labor not progressing she ended up at the hospital with an induction.  Even though it wasn’t at the birth center, Fiona peacefully entered the world in the water.

Jacksonville Baby Photographer

Being a Jacksonville Baby Photographer means that I’m constantly on the hunt for beautiful outdoor locations to showcase these adorable babies I get to photograph. Sometimes I get in a bit of a habit of using the same locations because I become comfortable with how the light falls, the convenience of a spot, or simply because I love that particular area.  I had sweet baby Zac scheduled for a Friday evening in one of my usual locations, but Mom had a scheduling conflict which meant that we needed to shoot in a completely different area of town.  I’d never done any sessions in this part of town so I reached out to a photographer friend of who gave me a few suggestions.  Off to the internet I went to search and one of the spots was complete perfection.  It totally fit the bill for what I was looking for.  (Thanks Amanda )!

Zac, it was so great seeing you and your mommy again!  You’ve grown so much since I photographed you at 4 months.  I can’t wait to see the entire family in a few months for your 1 year session. Time to get on the hunt for another stunning location…

Jacksonville Birth Photographer

As a Jacksonville birth photographer I am busy busy! I’m currently getting geared up to photograph another birth any day now and it occurred to me that I haven’t blogged any of the births I’ve captured in the last 2 years! That’s a shame because these are some of my most favorite sessions ever.  This particular birth was this summer and one of the happiest days that I’ve had the honor of being part of.  While every birth I’ve photographed has been full of joy, this one was so completely full of laughter and happiness.  Mom literally laughed her way through contractions! Thanks to the wonderful staff and team at St. Vincent’s Family Birthing Center!
