Happy photo day!

Whew – what a year!  Yep, it’s been just over a year since we moved from Charlotte, NC to Saint Johns FL!  Crazy doesn’t even begin to cover it!  I am happy to report that O has been doing great and has been released from all his various doctors!  Whoot whoot!  Turns out that they feel his arthritis was illness induced and no reason to think he should have any future problems!  After a month of gluten free he seemed to be free of stomach aches so he’s now back to eating gluten and doing fine.  Placebo effect or not – who knows but I’ll take it!

I’m planning on ramping back up this fall with some family photo sessions now that our life has some resemblance of normalcy! Yay!  So to start things off I’m going to honor national photo day with a little post featuring some dear friends who were all dressed up for his Navy commission.  That 4 o’clock Florida sun made for a very short and quick session but a successful one all the same!

Hopefully more to come soon.  Wish  me luck!  It’s hard to rebuild!

If I were to say what my specialty is or what I enjoy photographing the most, it would be families. I really enjoy interacting with kids of all ages (especially when they aren’t mine!) and I honestly feel that a nice family portrait is truly important.  I love seeing everyone together, smiling and enjoying each other.  I truly believe that a nice family picture has a true place in this crazy overwhelming digital world where we are so bombarded with selfies.  Find the magic that is a real picture, a printed picture….and one that you are ALL in!

I am just in LOVE with this gorgeous green background from Alexis’s family session!  The blue outfits looks so good against it!  I’m so happy that I had the chance to see y’all again this year!  I can’t believe how much the kids had grown!  Hope you all have a wonderful Holiday!  Sorry I was so late to blog this session – in my mind I have already done things that much later I realize I have not!
