ivana + ethan | jacksonville portrait photographer

I have known Ivana since high school, and have been lucky enough to have her model for me many times throughout the past 5 years or so. She has always been very choosy when it comes to guys, so I was so excited for her when she told me she had finally found The One! Ethan is in the Navy, and has been deployed for the past 9 months {for the final time}, so they decided they wanted to do a session to remember these moments of being reunited after such a long period of waiting. This vintage inspired session captures their personalities, their love, and their promise to never leave the other's side again.

Mbody Yoga | jacksonville event photographer

Meet the staff of Mbody Yoga! {Jacksonville, Fl}. I accompanied my good friend Isel {you've seen her engagement session & bridal shower on the blog} to a hot yoga class at Mbody one day and I absolutely fell in love with everything about it. The teachers were amazing, the experience was wonderful, and I felt so great afterwards! It became one of my favorite past-times, and I noticed such a difference in myself physically, mentally and emotionally in such a short time. I have been attending classes since November 2013, and have just grown to adore the staff and the students. Dawn, one of the managers, asked if I would photograph an event they were planning for all of the staff members to participate in team-building activities, and of course I happily accepted! Not only was it a beautiful day, it was entirely too much fun! Everyone was so friendly, welcoming and full of life & humor that I couldn't help but wear a smile the entire day. Here is a little sneak peek of the event!
