Allison and Johnny called me over a year ago about engagement photos in anticipation of getting married.....well, time went by, and travel on Johnny's part dictated a few things that weren't in their plan. Needless to say, they are already married, but wanted to do a shoot anyway!
We used the Lightner Museum and Flagler College for the bulk of the photos on this gorgeous Sunday afternoon. There's a funny story behind the Lightner Museum, but I'll leave it between the 3 of us.....(we kind of snuck in, without realizing we needed a permit.....oops!)
For the beach part of our session, we went down to the pier.....the tide was high so we didn't have much room. We had fun anyway ending the session at such a beautiful location!

And here she is!!!! My friend Sandra asked me to photograph her daughter Violet's baptism today in the Greek Orthodox church. After a couple of weddings of this type, I knew how lovely these ceremonies could be, and I was not disappointed! Sandra doesn't do anything halfway, so this was a full out celebration. Thanks for the great food afterwards!
This was a beautiful ceremony in the Greek Orthodox Church, attended by family and close friends....all for this adorable little girl. I felt like I was at Chris and Sandra's wedding all over again :)....which was also a beautiful event in the Greek Orthodox church some 5 years ago! Sandra exudes such class and poise, and I think you can see that here. :)
I promise she only cried for a minute! She was all smiles before long and posing for photos with her brother Jack!

And it's the Birthday Girl herself! Kate's 1 year party was the week before their park session. Beth (mommy) booked me only after I said, "hey, by the way, I can cover her party" when we were trying to find a date available for their portrait session. I just love this shot, because it shows exactly why you would want a photographer at your child's birthday party. You cannot possibly take this shot yourself, and don't you want to have it? I cover parties in 2 or 3 hour increments, and a CD of digital images is included. The first person to email or call me with the password "Party" gets $50 off their next event!

Well after spending 2 Saturdays in a row with your girls, I feel like I know them pretty well! The birthday party was a blast and the session at Walter Jones equally as enjoyable. Our little game of peek-a-boo gave me this image (my favorite!).....eh em, website material!
No seriously, you have the most adorable girls. I just love the one of Kate walking towards Lauren! What a great big sister she is!

Tammy and Bryan, thanks for having me come to the house to do Mason's baby pictures! I'm almost glad we had to reschedule, because I think we wouldn't have gotten these first smiles any earlier! What a beautiful family and home you have. Congratulations!

This is my dear friend Andi and her family, who came down from Virginia. We have been friends for probably almost 30 years. She asked me to photograph her family and we got totally rained out on Sunday. But Monday, we had hazy beach weather, a photographers' delight! These kids, hands down, are the best behaved I have EVER photographed, mostly because they are awesome and they have awesome parents! I had a great time with you guys, and Peggy it was SO good to see you too. Thanks for playing with Aidan :) Love you guys....safe travels back!
