Recently I had the pleasure of meeting miss Palmer and shooting her 6 month pictures. This little girl has the bluest eyes and sweetest smile. We went to Alpine Grove Park, which is one of my favorite places. It has moss covered trees, an old barn and a white farm house. Courtney, Palmers’ mom, brought a blue pair Converse with her initials embroidered on them. They were super cute and got the biggest smiles when she had them on.
I love every wedding I shoot, but this one was special to me. I’ve know Kristen for a few years now and was so excited when she sent me a picture of the ring saying Dave had proposed. Kristen and Dave met while working at hotels across the street from one another and it was love at first sight. In the time they have dated, they have traveled the world together and captured the hearts of everyone who knows them. You couldn’t meet a more sincere couple. Their wedding was full of emotion and pure happiness. I’ve never seen two families come together so effortlessly. Kristen is an only child and now she not only gained a husband, but four brothers and sisters.
Rebecca and Jesse meet while attending the University of Florida – Go Gators! Rebecca knew that Jesse was the one from the very beginning. They made their vows at The Club Continental overlooking the St. Johns River. It was a sweet ceremony and I loved that it was officiated by the bride’s grandfather.
This summer when I went up to Buffalo, NY to visit family my aunt booked me a senior portrait session with Paige and Jay. Being in a new place is exciting and challenging – you don’t know where your going or what to expect. I arrived at their home and was pleasantly surprised to see their backyard. It was perfect! They had a barn, wildflowers, a wood pile and a basketball court. Paige and Jay were such a delight and total naturals.
