The McMaster Family | Christmas 2014 | 12.14.14 | Jacksonville Family Photographer

After years (yes, YEARS) of waiting to take photos of this family, I was finally honored enough to be able to! Cristy, Sean and their adorable toddler Liam were so sweet and I am so glad I got to take their first professional photos as a family! Thank goodness I brought that snow with me because it was about the only thing that kept Liam in one place for more than a few seconds :)

Mikula Family | Xmas Mini | 12.14.14 | Jacksonville Family Photographer

Karyn signed up for one of my Christmas Mini-Sessions and I am so glad she did because how cute and sweet are these photos! Her son was such a naturally sweet big brother to his little sister, I didn't even tell him to give her hugs and kisses, he just knew all on his own that they would make for adorable memories! This family was so loving and fun, photographing them was a piece of cake and a pleasure, thank you to Karyn and her family for joining MY True Era family at the tail end of the 2014 year! I truly hope to capture more of your memories and milestones in the future!

Wyatt's Home-Birth Story | 12.3.14 | Jacksonville Birth Photographer

Out of the blue I was contacted by fellow photographer Jennifer Michelle who was in dire need of some assistance. She had to be out of town the week mom-to-be Victoria was supposed to go into labor with her second child. So who became the back-up photographer? That's right! I had the HONOR of witnessing and photographing this sweet HOME birth! Victoria and her husband were well into labor when I arrived, and thank goodness I arrived when I did, because it was only maybe a short 30 minutes later that she began pushing, and an even shorter time thereafter was baby's debut! The parents decided to wait until the baby was born to find out if their second child was a boy or girl, and to their surprise it was another sweet boy they named Wyatt! Older brother Bryce {2} was very excited, and how cute is he, every time Wyatt would cry, Bryce would console him by saying "I know, baby, I know".  Also, please check out Bryce's adorable scrubs outfit they had custom-made for him. Too funny. Congratulations to Victoria and her loving family! Wyatt is precious!
