Love, family of four and golden dunes | Ponte Vedra children photographer

With every session I photograph, I have a sense of excitment and well know from when I was little, feeling of butterflies in my stomach.
It really doesn’t matter what session it is; maternity, babies, kids or family. It’s all the same. And if, on top of that I supposed to take pictures of another photographer, those feelings might get even more intense.
Being there for anyone, when those sweet moments happen, capturing such a deep relationships and adoration for each person, means so much to me!
Family is one of the most valuable things in my life and I always wanted to be clear about it.
Being in the business myself, I know that we often are not included in the photos because we are always the ones taking them.
Because of this. the opportunity to have pictures taken might mean even more to a person who has the same passion as me. Isn’t this interesting?
I know that feeling too well.

I am so glad I could take this freshly made Floridians to my spot, spend d time together and be silly with their beautiful daughters!!
In coming years, those little girls will change incredibly and childhood they experience will adjust with them.
It was absolutely a pleasure to catch the present moments for those 4 lovely people and lhave them being center of my attention while pressing shutter of my camera.

Holiday sessions are coming – family and maternity photography | Jacksonville photographer

It’s so good to start Holiday season again! We are only a couple of months away from Christmas, and that means there will be a lot Family Sessions coming up!

The fall season can be so busy due to Christmas cards mailing deadline and beautiful cool weather here in Florida. Actually, it is one of my favourite times in the whole year!

This beautiful family was photographed by me for the 2nd time around, and each time I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to take pictures of them when they were expecting a baby.

Whoever knows me, understands how much I love Maternity Sessions!
It’s always so exciting to see my previous client again and watch their family and children grow.
Not mentioning, how heartfelt is to capture their pregnancy!
It’s been a while since I saw their beautiful girl, first daughter, actually when she was still in the belly, and I am so excited for her to be a big sister so soon, and surely enough she already had choices for her name!

If you only knew…

Maternity and Family Beach Session | Neptune Beach photographer

When Maternity Session turns into a Family Session, you sure can expect lots of energy and that’s exactly what we had when a  sweet daughter of this glowing expecting mamma joined us.

So glad we hugged tight and let her be a center of attention for couple frames. Those moment will fly by and since soon she will be a big sister, attention seams just a perfect thing to give her, right?

It was all about love, new life and bright future. That light couldn’t be any more magical and simply perfect for the occasion as you can see.

Soul, joy and illuminating beauty, that’s all I see when browsing once again through those images. Such a blessing to be able capture those for them!

Intimate Maternity Session. Atlantic Beach, Florida.

This session.

Dreamy, soulful, beautiful opportunity to capture love of two people that not only awaiting their first child, but they love each other so deeply that I was afraid images won’t be able reflect on how much.

Session full of intimacy, trust and happiness. Session that I will surely never forget and I am so very much looking forward to photograph first days of those two people becoming parents!

Two locations: home and Atlantic Beach during stormy weather and pure beauty.

Mother and daughter maternity session. Ponte Vedra Beach.

I am looking back at this session and smiling. This little girl’s mom told me that her daughter is quite shy. Pretty much 30 minutes into the session we were chasing each other and holding hands and she smiled with the best toothless smile ever!

So sweet that this big sister was a part of her mom’s Maternity Session!

Connection between mom and a daughter is one of the most beautiful ones and to capture them in such a great moment is just heartwarming, wonderful experience!

Did I mentioned that I am in love with the rainbow flare image of mom??!! Stunning! No editing tricks there, just right lens.

When photographing another amazing photographer. Maternity and Family Beach Session.

When another photographer, whose work I follow, asks to shoot her Maternity Session…

IT’S SUCH AN HONOR.
It’s simply such an honor for others to put trust in me. I feel this way about every client of mine.
There is something even more special, when somebody who understands photography so well and who is so very talented, decides to book a session with me while they are away from home.
Floored? Yes, I was floored. Most definitely!
I know this lady for quite a long time,through Clickin Moms mostly, but I pretty much follow her work all over social media. So when I learned she was coming to Jacksonville AND booked a session with me, AND I would meet her family and see her beautiful belly, I WAS ALL IN.
Head first! Hahaha, not kidding!
I have to tell you, I loved their kids! Such fun, sweet kiddos and I think it is fair to say I made friends with them for life. Ok, joking! But we did ended up drinking milkshakes together and eating burgers, so that tells you something… We were hungry. Ha!
We wished to have a little more time, but I simply couldn’t wait to get back home and upload those images!
This mom was glowing! I gasped pretty much each time I was taking picture of her and wind came to frame…

I feel like I am giving you too many words. Just look, and you will know exactly what I mean.

a little fighter with Cystic Fibrosis

On June 1st, International Children’s Day, I decided to give away one mini-session to one Bay & Bee fan…
I am so glad I did! The winner was randomly chosen and soon after I found out I would be photographing a very special little girl. Her mom has such an important story to tell. Take a minute to read… awareness means everything:
#iwearpurpleforcharliegene #cfawarness

“When Charlie-Gene was 4 weeks old we found out she had Cystic Fibrosis. CF is a genetic lung disease that effects the lungs and digestive system. We had no idea what the disease was and no one in our families had it either. We’re so thankful that her new born screening picked up on it or who knows when we would have found out.. Charlie has to take medications daily as well as do chest therapy with her vest twice a day. It’s truly inspiring to watch an 18 month old fight this disease every single day. The average age right now for someone with CF to live is 40 years old, but with technology and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation our prayer is that she will live MUCH longer than that.”ponte vedra family session with children, jacksonville florida, mcolichio photography

Amazing Family Session at sunset. Traveling to capture beauty.

This was one of the most amazing sessions!

I traveled to Salt Lake City to meet many amazing photographers during Click Away conference and then I had a chance to photograph very (very!) talented photographer and her family during sunset at Salt Flats in Utah. So much emotions, love and beauty! I wish that evening could go forever.

I will never forget this Family Session, and this sunset will be forever imprinted on my skin.

 

Looking forward to travel for photography again!
