Josh … senior year

Meet Josh. Otherwise known around town as Smoothie. He’s one of son’s best friends. I’ve known him since he was 4 year old. He sold me rocks as a little boy in the neighborhood and set my backyard on fire as a kid. I’ve coached him in basketball and have taken him to the ER after a football injury in middle school. He and Q (my son) have done everything together … watch their first horror film, learn to skateboard, play music in the GP band and get their first  jobs. I’ve watched him grow up.  And I am so proud of Josh … he is truly like one of my own.

Time with the McCays …

It was so fun to hang out with the McCay family for an evening. I’ve gotten to know this family over the past handful of years, most recently with an in home lifestyle session when baby Keston was born. Now at 6 months, he, his mom and dad, grandparents, aunt and uncle came together for a three generation family shoot. This family is filled with love and it definitely shined through …

Ceili … college bound

So this is Ceili … a truly beautiful girl, inside and out. She’s like a ray of sunshine and you can’t help but feel happy when you’re around her. Graduating last June, Ceili is off to southern California to begin her freshman year of college.  An exciting adventure … where I know she will do amazing things. But before she took off, we were able to spend an evening together at the Murphy Country Nursery. Here’s a bit of what we did!

the Kunst fam …

Family sessions are such a blessing to me. Each bring their own dynamic, each being an inspiration.

And yes, the Kunst family is this cute! Their smiles, their laughter and just the fun they had together. It was a pleasure to get to know them and hang out with them for an beautiful summer evening at Pacifica.

Four generations …

I had the honor and privilege of meeting up with the Wells family for a four generation photoshoot. They are definition of family … they loved and they laughed, and simply interacted with one another in a truly beautiful way.

Family reunion … with the Trainas

As the clouds and rain rolled in and out of Bigham Knoll in Jacksonville, the Traina family gathered for a celebration. It was a surprise 70th birthday party, as well as a family reunion. And what a family … they enjoyed one another, they laughed together, and they knew how to have a good time.
