Miller is Graduating – A Lifestyle Senior Shoot

Miller (coolest girl name award!) has been dancing for-e-ver, and all her hard work is paying off as she heads to Clemson this fall to dance!
Her family, that hails from South Carolina, is just a little excited… and proud!
Congrats Miller, I’m so happy for you. :)

Local Love – Downtown Jacksonville

We love hanging out downtown, so last Saturday we decided to drive there and spend the afternoon wandering around. Our first stop was the Riverside Arts Market for lunch. The market is under a bridge, so it’s nice and shaded and always has a cool breeze coming off the river. There’s so much to see, hear, and eat! Lots of local artists sell their custom artwork, and there’s always live music. And if you’re lucky you can catch a magic show or even a street dance performance! I really enjoy all the local produce and baked goods too.

After lunch (we shared a bunch of fried cheesy goodness), we went over to Sweet Pete’s for dessert. I’ve talked about this place a lot, but it’s just so cute that any time we’re downtown we have to stop in, even if it’s just for a few minutes!

When we finished up at the candy shop, we walked across the street to Hemming Park. This is another one of our favorite spots because there’s always something going on in the park, and even on a Saturday, there’s usually a crowd. It makes us feel a little like we’re in a big city somewhere! The park has a few really cool art installations right now, so we checked those out, played some games, then went back across the street to the downtown library. We mainly went there to use the bathroom, but we love spending time in there. It’s our favorite library in the city!

We ended our little afternoon excursion with a long ride on the Skyway. We hopped on at the Hemming Park station and rode it for about 30 minutes. Kingston loved it!

I think this will be part of our summer routine this year! Next time we’ll bring some friends and maybe hit the Museum of Science and History too!

The Croxton Boys – A Lifestyle Family Shoot

The Croxton Boys are extra special to me! I started taking pictures of them when the oldest was just a cute baby bump. :) And it’s been fun watching them grow into sweet, energetic little boys. We had a good time running (literally!) around Downtown Fernandina last week!

The Barkoskie Family – A Lifestyle Family Shoot

I can’t say enough good things about this sweet family. We were introduced last year when Blake (mom) won a Mother’s Day contest sponsored by the Jacksonville Mom’s Blog. She beat a ton of other local moms, and one of her prizes was a photoshoot with me! Once we met and I heard a little bit of her story, I realized why she won. She really is super mom, and her family is awesome! But because of conflicting schedules, the crazy Florida weather, and even a car disaster we were just recently able to do that photoshoot. A year after she won it. I think we were both starting to wonder if it was actually going to happen! But it did! And the evening was perfect. The family decided to do their pictures at a park they enjoy – where the kids love feeding the ducks! And I just love when people choose a special place for their pictures. It makes the images so much more meaningful! I hope these pictures make this special family smile. :)

What I Wore

What I Wore… to church last Sunday. Summer layers! I love wearing layers, because I feel like they add so much more interest to an outfit. But most of the time, it’s hard to pull them off in Florida! These tops make it easy though. The lace tank is from Nordstrom, and the vest/tunic (what is this thing?!) is thrifted Anthropologie. And I should probably mention my necklaces, because I wear them so much. I’m actually wearing them as I type this! The metals are antique bronze, so the color goes with almost anything. I made the silhouette of Kingston’s cute little head, and my friend JoJo gave me the other one. It has a big “K” on it! Honestly, I never thought I’d wear mom necklaces, but these are my absolute favorites!!
