Little flower child and her family | session in the field by Jacksonville photographer

This sweet family of 3 are seriously one of my favorite people to photograph while visiting Poland!
There isn’t anything as comforting to me as simply walking through a wheat field, picking occasional poppies and at the same time photographing happiness of other’s in the exact moment. I was so looking forward to having a session in the field like this during summer and making a flower crown for a little child for a really long time.
I mean just look at her! Her beautiful blue eyes and babyish blonde hair, which probably are going to change a lot in future years. Such a beauty, surely after her momma!
And to top it all, she was full of smiles and precious baby expressions that simply melt even the toughest heart. The love between her parents and their child, the love that I witnessed between her and her dad… can’t be express in words. One of the purest things anyone can envision.
I will say for the hundred time, being a children and family photographer allows me to really see the joy we often overlook.

mommy and me flower session | Jacksonville Family Photographer

I can’t wait to show you this family session! This flower field locations a little outside Jacksonville, is one of the prettiest places to photograph kids and families, not mentioning maternity sessions, really, amazing place for anything and I am so grateful that this land owners allows us to use it yearly!

When I met that beautiful little girl, she tried at first hide between daddy’s legs and just lurking at me from behind her curls. It didn’t take a long for her to pick up some flowers, letting me smell them and very occasionally even sharing with me. Her beautiful momma was gifted a lot more flowers than me, and I can totally understand why. The love between them was such a pleasure to capture!! We mainly photographed mom and her little baby girl, but dad naturally was included in the frame as he was the comforting assistant . The cutest thing ever to  watch!

It reminded me all the things I felt when my kiddos where that age and all of them I miss for. Time goes so fast. Too fast, right??

So there… I am leaving this here. Watch their love, imagine her tiny voice calling mom and dad, her giggles and wind in their hair… All of this was there!

Soulful, pure and unconditional love!

mom and baby boy sunshine session | Atlantic Beach children photographer

When baby session turns into the sweetest giggles and biggest smiles in the most beautiful light… that’s what you call the best work in the whole world!

There isn’t a way to measure the love any mom has for her child. But watching them literally melting each time that little hand touches, getting teary out of happiness, sure gives me some kind of idea. Beyond the world!

What I adore about being a photographer is creating relationships that often last for many, many years. Being able to watch babies grow, family to expend and all the wonderful things happening to them along the way. That’s a blessing that I’ve been given. This stunning mom is one of those amazing people I am capturing in all different stages of her family.

I remember so well doing this mom’s maternity session… seeing this boy in hospital for a newborn session, soon after he was born… seeing his cute nursery that soon enough he will be making a lot of mess in.

As we were playing and walking with him in the woods, there was mutual understanding of what needs to be capture. There was a trust that I am forever grateful for.

This baby boy and his mom are like the ray of sunshine by themselves. Just look and you will see exactly what I am talking about.

home newborn family session | Ponte Vedra baby photographer

I could have look at this sleeping baby boy forever. Calmly sleeping and dreaming in comfort of his mom’s arms.

Watching a baby and his family adjusting to his new home is quite spectacular, especially that not long before that I had a Maternity Session with his mom! New family has started. Everything is so new, exciting and maybe even a little overwhelming, especially with so much of outpouring love.

There isn’t more comfortable place for a newborn session than his home. That’s why I recommend at home newborn sessions.

Mom can breastfeed in peace in her favorite chair, warm air surrounds us, which allows this baby sleep so beautifully and dad is always there to help and be a part of this wonderful session.

This, week old precious boy slept pretty much through the entire session. Of course swaddling and rocking him was a one of the reason why he was so content, but I have to submit, that , on top of sweet newborn photos, putting babies back to sleep is the thing I love the most!

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!

7 days old baby girl with her family | Jacksonville newborn photographer

Oh! This beautiful baby girl had surprised her parents!

She was eager to be a part of this beautiful family, and such a sweet newborn to work with!

Not sure what helped, the cuddling, the love all around her and the attention she got from us? She was simply amazing, and as usual, during my newborn sessions, I was melting from adoration while photographing her.

Even though we were planning on doing this baby session at their new home, we had more than we needed here. House full of memories, big windows, comfortable parents and dog that couldn’t be more excited for this little peanut!

Newborn sessions that are done at home are a truly wonderful way to set the mood for your new baby pictures. No stress of traveling, getting yourself out of home when routines are changed, and simply everything we need is right there. You’ve got me and the camera, you’ve got yourself and loved ones near by… what else do you need?

I’ve got you!

Family of 4, Nocatee | Jacksonville family photographer

My favorite part of being a family photographer is not only being able to capture those sweet moments for you, but especially to witness all those amazing changes. There really are no words!
Last time I saw this sweet family it was during their Newborn Session. It’s truly mindblowing how fast those sweet kiddos grew and how their personalities evolved.

I love watching them playing, giggling and going through all the stages of childhood. I often look at them and smile, because as a mom of two children I often understand it all so well.
I also know, that I look back at those times where they were 1… 2… 3 years old, probably until they will be grown-ups, and I want to remember everything even more.

I couldn’t be more grateful to use my talent in such ways and help you freeze time.
So glad I could be here to help you capture them!

First 48 hours newborn session | Jacksonville Beach baby photographer

Did you ever have that gut feeling that you will be a part of something purely wonderful???

I did.

We waited less or more patiently for this little fellow. He had so many people cheering for him and loving him with all their hearts even before he was born.

I drove to St. Vincent’s Jacksonville Beach hospital to capture First 48 hours session with such excitement and joy. When the door from the hospital suite opened you could feel happiness floating in the air… I felt immediately like a part of the family. NO WORDS TO EXPRESS IT.

Needlessly said, I just became a part of this miracle called “new life” with a camera by my side, documenting every emotional moment I could imagine and believe me… THERE WERE SO MANY OF THEM!

To see grandmothers surrounding him with such care, to see parents thankfully hugging a doctor and then looking at this little human with disbelieve that THEY actually created this truly amazing baby… it’s breathtaking.

It makes my cheeks hurt, brings butterflies to my stomach and tears to my eyes…

First 48hours session demands me being on-call for at least a couple weeks, but oh my goodness!!!! It couldn’t be any more worth the wait!

Hello little fellow… I can’t wait to see all the wonderful things you will do!

Mom and children session | Jacksonville family photographer

So this was fun!!!
Dark clouds hung above us and soon rain drizzled a little too much, but thankfully we were able to capture it all almost in between the drops. Agree or not but this hammock shot is just SWEET!!!!
So much love and carefree laugh!
Motherhood is sure not easy and never was but I am so glad I could capture the beautiful essence of it for this mom.
She is the rock for those kiddos, and I sure could see how much she means to them!

Being able to use my talent to create images of children and families that reflect their beautiful relations means everything and no words can express how grateful I am for every opportunity to do so. Starting in 2017 I will not only offer my services to close by families in Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra, Atlantic Beach etc but I’ve decided that I will be occasionally also travel for it.

Just wait for those photographs!
