Ah, FINALLY a new head shot! Thank you to Suzanne C. Photography for this great photo! I am not photogenic at all, and I am so awkward in front of the camera, but she did an awesome job with these! Woo!

Best of 2015 | My favorites! | A Year In Review | Jacksonville Photographer

It's hard to believe ANOTHER year is ending! As I get older, the years only fly by more swiftly, especially now that I am watching my own little one grow {like a weed!}

2015 brought me so much joy and fulfillment.  
I met and worked with crazy awesome, beautiful people {clients and fellow photographers}
I got to photograph the most important moments in people's lives, from births to weddings.
I was able to capture true love in several forms, details of a couple's Big Day, first kisses, priceless smiles/laughter, fleeting moments, sweet children, growing families, and so much more! 

I can't even express how lucky and privileged I feel to have been a part of all of these lives, even if it was only for an hour, or a day. My job is one that doesn't feel like work. It is fun, it is exciting, it is what I love. And I want to thank each and every client for the opportunity to capture their memories, from the bottom of my heart, you are all amazing!

Here's a look back at just a few of my favorites from 2015!

The Kearney Family | Merry Christmas! | Jacksonville Family Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing this cute little family in San Marco over the weekend, and I just loved their Christmas spirit! Stephanie's outfit was just perfect, and their sweet rescue pup Oso was sporting his bow tie and Santa hat. Stephanie and Sean live in San Marco and frequent the little park near their home, so we decided to include both locations in their session. Oso was a trooper and enjoyed all of the lovin' he received, and I truly enjoyed the genuine affection they all had for each other. Happy Holidays to the Kearney family!
