I worked with the Blackmons three years ago, back when there were just two of them. :)
So I LOVED getting to meet their sweet little guy last week… and chasing him around a local playground!
Just a tad late on this one, but here are some fun pics from October!!
Left: Working on our backup plan in case the whole music career doesn’t pan out. #futurestarvingartist
Right: The light was on.
Left: K was so excited and shy when he met Switchfoot.
Right: We love hanging in the country with Grandma and Grandpa… and the cousins.
Left: Lunch date.
Right: So long pinkaliscious office turned drum room. Time to make it look like the man cave it really is.
I’ve been working on it for almost three weeks but keep getting distracted. I will finish… eventually. :)
Right: Dinner with my friend JoJo. So thankful for her!
Left: Kingston likes to help with the groceries. Oops.
Right: From the Time Out chair: “Mamma, I think I’m ready to apologize to you… or not.”
Left: Two cuties at the corn maze.
Right: “Dadda, Momma, and Kingston!”
Left: Fun Halloween printables from Paper & Stitch.
Right: Pumpkin Patch with sweet friends and a bunch of crazy kiddos!
Left: Kingston and I love going out on Fridays as soon as Anderson gets home from work!
Right: “Threenagers” chillin’ at the Miller house.
Left: Fancy Ladies Tea.
Right: Just a boy, his (Grandma’s) dog, and his Barbie car.
Left: Chai Latte fans, you have to try these. And eat them with a chai latte. :)
Right: Just another Friday night.
Left: Two women drug this kid to the thrift store, and I had a feeling he’d be a hot mess. But I was so wrong.
Three different people stopped us to tell him how good he was. :)
I tried to quickly walk away each time before a meltdown could ruin our facade. Almost 3-year-olds are tricky, huh???
Right: Michael’s has @shwings now for $6.99! And if you download the weekly ad app there’s a 50% off coupon this week.
Bought Kingston a new pair for $3.50!!!
I don’t shoot a ton of extended family sessions, because… well, they’re scary! But I’m so glad this one worked out. Mr. and Mrs. Lucas gathered their daughters, sons-in-law, and some of the cutest kids in town in their beautiful back yard for what turned out to be one of my favorite sessions ever. I love that you never know what’s going to happen when you work with kids… and this crowd did not disappoint!
Fall has finally made it’s way down to Florida! That means we can cover our arms and legs. Just not at the same time.
Don’t want to get too crazy… or sweaty!
Yay for purple (and every other color) tights. :)
Strange title, huh? :)
I’ve worked with this family for several years, and when they told me they wanted to take pictures at church I was like, “Well… okay!”
Here’s the back-story: The Mocks are moving (actually they already have – it happened FAST), and we had planned to do their annual family photo session at home. But Tara told me there was just no way it would work out unless we did the pictures in front of the walls of boxes all over their house. Totally understandable! But she had an idea. She said the one thing the whole family would miss most about Jacksonville was their/our church. Then she asked if I would follow them around on their last Sunday and document “A Day at Chets” for the Mock family. I was immediately in, even though I wasn’t sure how it would work out. I love a good weird/bizarre/different/creative idea! So we met up in the Green Room (Tara is a musician and was on the worship team), and I followed the Mocks around the Chets campus. We found some of their favorite people and made them smile for the camera, went with the kids to say goodbye to their friends in KidWorship, and even got a few shots of Tara playing with the band for the last time.
Okay, writing this out made me feel a little sad. Tara, I hope these pictures make all of you smile when they think about your time here in Jacksonville.
You are already missed!!!
Please note the cray cray photo bomber above. She might be married to the man who delivered my child. :)
