Alpine Groves Park ~ fall family photo session in Saint Johns FL

I simply love this park for family photos!  It’s so big and beautiful with so much wonderful light and beautiful trees with that gorgeous Spanish moss!  We had a great time wandering around just a few of the different areas in this gorgeous park 🙂  Oh and it’s dog friendly too 🙂

Knock knock….. San Marco Fl Family photography

Thanks to my buddy – I now have a new favorite knock knock joke! You have to say it out loud to get it though….. so give it a try! Seriously if you have kids they will love this knock knock joke.  I had to tell it to all my kids the minute I got home and I laugh to myself each time I think about it!

knock knock.  Who’s there?  Smell Mop.  Smell Mop who?  Ha ha hahahahhahahha you just said smell my poo!!!!

I can’t thank my dear friends enough for giving up their Sunday morning to help me explore some of the local areas to see how they would work in photographs.  I’m happy to say that we had GREAT success taking family pictures in San Marco!  The morning started off overcast so we just had the most beautiful lighting by the lions!

and then we decided to reward our sweet little models with some super yummy donuts from Good Dough.  This has got to be the cutest donut (doughnut???? which is it really) shop ever! They had a wonderful craft variety of yummy goodness and people were lined up to try their goodies right at 9 when they opened.  They even have a little wooden play kitchen for the littler kids 🙂  A must try if you are ever in the area!

Happy Friday! My hope…

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend!  For me, we plan on relaxing after all the craziness of getting our 3 boys back to school this week.  Somehow it always seems so hectic and stressful!

I had to make a quick post though to let Mark know that I was working away on his wonderful family reunion photo session and just melted when I came upon these cuties.  I can only hope that Seth and I are this cute and sweet when we get their age!  Don’t you just adore his hat?!?!  I am a sucker for hats!

I’m telling you this has been the year of the dog for us this fall!  So many wonderful families have chosen to include their dogs (or dogs) in their family photos and we just LOVE IT!  Yes, you heard me right….we love having your dog in the photos too!  Seriously – how cute is this little baby named caligirl!!!!  Oh and the family is really cute too 🙂

I love family photo sessions ~Ballantyne area family photographer~

Especially when there is a baby involved! I loved meeting this wonderful and fun family! I was so happy that we were able to meet up when all the extended family was in town to welcome the new little man!

I’ve always wanted to try to do a session in the peach orchards when the trees bloom but I tell you it’s a bit tricky! The trees only bloom for a very short period of time and our light can be a bit on the tricky side depending on the time of day but we lucked out with some beautiful weather this past weekend.
