I am part of an amazing business networking group called BNI (Business Networking International). We are the "Profit Partners" chapter here in Jacksonville. This group is so fantastic! They have welcomed me as a member just a couple of months ago, and sometimes I feel like they are another family to me! The business contacts are invaluable and our goal is to grow all our businesses by helping each other. We meet weekly and pass thousands of dollars of referrals to each other every month!
Sorry guys, I couldn't resist! This was just a test shot to check my flash, and look what I found in my camera. I won't mention any names, but one of these guys is our President and one is a former President.....hmmmmmm. :)
Here's Richard Sartor of Send Out Cards (although you can't really tell it's him!) collecting our referrals, wearing the sign made by Florida Custom Signs & Graphics, owned by the lovely Chandevi Rodriguez!....."a business without a sign is a sign of no business!" I love it!

Finally, our first family portrait. Yes, it's at my favorite spot for families. Aidan is now 8 months old, I can't believe it. I never imagined how much our lives would change after having a baby, it's incredible. The trivial stuff that used to matter doesn't anymore! He is about to start crawling so I am in trouble....to all the moms out there, my hats off to you!

Marianne & Drew have 12, count them 12, grandchildren!! A summertime family reunion at Amelia Island was the perfect time to photograph them all together. And that we did! On a stormy evening, we braved the beach and didn't have a drop of rain....thank goodness, because everyone was flying home the next day! It was a pleasure to meet this energetic crew for sure :)

What a beautiful girl. I absolutely love this shot! She looks so natural and relaxed here. Venessa is a wonderful daughter, it only took me about 5 minutes to figure that one out! I hope she enjoys her senior year at Fleming Island High School!

Rachel and Gary are expecting their first child very soon. They were SO easy to photograph, and as you can see, she is very beautiful pregnant!
Love this shot of her! By the way, Melissa is one of the coolest, most upbeat people I know. She is always smiling and happy! She is a joy to be around.
Check out this "rockstar"! Melissa came to my "Ladies Day" at the studio for some fun, playful, "give to my husband" type pictures. We had a blast and she photographed like a supermodel!

Alex and Tracy were such a fun couple to photograph! Her enthusiasm and bubbly personality are contagious! Not to mention, they are SO in love!

Ok, so these images are waaaaay back from April I think. My best friend, Misha and her family, met me in Gainesville (our old stomping grounds) at my insistence so we could get some family shots! The boys ran the whole time, but it was alot of fun. I thought the horses made such a beautiful backdrop. Happy 2nd Birthday to Ryan by the way!
