Seth and Michaela: In Love

To say that I was thrilled to do some photos for Seth and Michaela is a huge understatement! The two are from Arkansas, but Seth is here because he is a member of the Marine Corps and is about to be deployed for Afghanistan. Michaela was here visiting, and they decided they wanted some pictures together before he leaves. The two aren't engaged (yet!), but are clearly in love!

I love how happy they look!

They were so playful - it was fun to watch :)

Such a bittersweet moment - staring out across the water that will soon separate them for a season.
Thank you both so much!  It was an honor to work with you, and I will certainly keep you both in my prayers in the coming months.

Meeker Family

A few weeks ago I met up with Tony, Marnie, Ashley, and Jason for a family beach session.  I know the family from our church, and now also school, as Ashley and Jason go to the same school as Chris.  But seriously, are these some cute kids or what?! :)

Tickle Fight ;)


Ok.. so is this one a more accurate representation of parenting....

Or is this one? :)

Haha - I know the feeling!

Congratulations Whitaker and Heather!

All summer long I looked forward to shooting Whitaker and Heather's wedding. Just two months earlier I had photographed Heather's sister Jennifer's wedding, so I couldn't wait to work with such a fun family again! And this wedding did not disappoint. It was very different than Jennifer and Brad's - though they are sisters their style isn't the same. But everything was beautiful, and it was a perfect day :)

Ceremony: Riverside Park United Methodist Church
Reception: Florida Yacht Club
Flowers: Island Flower and Garden

I loved her shoes - but this was not an easy shot to get! I am not as tall as a chandelier...

Thanks to the fabulous Corinna for assisting me, and for getting this next shot! :)
They didn't want to see each other before the ceremony, so we did this shot instead.
LOVE the sweet tears ;)

If you've followed my blog for long, these two will look familiar. I photographed Bray and Leslie's wedding back in 2009 in Hilton Head, SC. Leslie and Heather were friends in college. And I am excited that I will be seeing them again soon - Leslie is expecting their first baby, so we'll be doing some maternity photos! :)
And these two, Jennifer and Brad, should also look familiar. Two months after their wedding and they're still smiling :)
I grew up in Jacksonville, so I always love coming back for weddings. Just seeing the skyline makes me smile :)

And here's the slideshow!

Asher is 9 Months Old!

I have really enjoyed getting to watch Asher grow these past 9 months. It has gone so quickly! But 9 months is a fun age... they're cute, mobile, and have all sorts of new tricks. Asher has caught on quickly - the kid is almost walking! Isn't he a cutie?!

I love this family! :)

Kerri's mom came along for a few pictures with her grandson.

I love all of his little expressions!

Kerri and Brandon recently bought a house, so we headed over for a few pictures.
He wasn't so keen on the idea of laying still for his bottle - he preferred to roll around with it. Guess I was a bit of a distraction!
I can't believe Asher will be 1 so soon! And I can't wait to meet the newest baby Basista! :)
