The Lucas Family

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!

The Mock Family… at Church

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. :)

JD - Really nice shoot. Good job, Callahan.

November 5, 2013 - 4:44 pm

Grandpa Greer - Tara,
Those are great pictures! You guys all look beautiful…. well, except for Chris, of course.
This young lady taking the pictures did a wonderful job!

Love,
Pa-Daddy

pinkcoffeephoto - Love you too, Tara! Praying you find a great church up there!!!

November 5, 2013 - 11:29 am

Tara - Love. Love. And love some more. Sniff. Miss you all so much. Raleigh is beautiful, but I miss our church family incredibly. I can’t thank you enough for going outside the box with me. Means more than you know!! Love you, Lyndsay!

Oh, Corn

We just had our first corn maze experience. Kingston’s favorite part of the whole day was playing in the giant tubs of corn kernels. My favorite part was when Anderson called it pop corn. He thought it was the same thing! City boy. I don’t know, but the place just wasn’t what I thought it was going to be. Not sure what I was expecting… and maybe it’s because I grew up in a rural area, but the whole “spend a day in the country” thing just didn’t do it for me. And there were huge lines for everything! A really long (Disney-size) line to get in, another one for food (that they ran out of!), and another one that led to a hay ride that drove out to the actual corn maze. What the heck?! It was crazy. The little guy did have a great time, but next time we want to pet some chickens and roll in corn, we’re just going to Uncle Don’s (my brother) house. :)

pinkcoffeephoto - We will have to try that one next time we get the urge… or I’ll just send K with you!!

November 4, 2013 - 3:30 pm

JoJo - Now I don’t feel so bad about not getting on the list to get into this place that one Friday!(: The one we went to with my family was pretty good and worth a shot (next year if you don’t want to pay again this year). We actually kind of got lost in that corn maze, haha!

November 4, 2013 - 2:26 pm

pinkcoffeephoto - Ha! Whitney, sounds like you should’ve jumped in the tubs with the corn kernels. :))

November 4, 2013 - 1:19 pm

Whitney - I agree that place isn’t that great. I went for a life group event at night and the best part was the bonfire. Luckily we didn’t have long lines but the “maze” was see through and living in Ohio I have high expectations. It looks like Kingston had a great time though. :)

The Donut Bandit

BEWARE!
Ladies and Gentlemen, there’s a Donut Bandit on the loose!

Kingston doesn’t really like the whole Halloween costume thing. Here’s proof from his 1st Halloween when I dressed him up like The King. I mean who doesn’t like blue suede shoes? Crazy kid! Last year I let him wear regular clothes and ride around on his motorcycle. We called him a biker, but whatever. He was so much happier. We asked him all month what he wanted to be for Halloween, and he said, “I don’t understand it!” (The kid repeats EVERYTHING he hears.) So I decided to go with the flow and just put a mask on him. He loves donuts, so it’s funny to us. :) He keeps saying, “Give me all your donuts!”

November 1, 2013 - 2:29 pm

grandma - Does this mean I can give him all the donuts he wants!!!! love this .

October 31, 2013 - 9:39 pm

pinkcoffeephoto - Exactly Pops!!

October 31, 2013 - 7:35 pm

Pops - Like father, like son.

October 31, 2013 - 6:38 pm

pinkcoffeephoto - Thank you Jessica!!!!!!

October 31, 2013 - 5:00 pm

Jessica (Coco/Mingo) - This is the cutest Halloween outfit ever!! I can’t even contain my excitement for this!! love it :) Happy Halloween!!

October 31, 2013 - 4:37 pm

pinkcoffeephoto - We have a weakness for KK. :))

October 31, 2013 - 3:55 pm

Marlena - LOVE IT! And I would personally love a Krispy Kreme delivery. Hold on to that carbohydrate, fatty gold little man!

October 31, 2013 - 2:36 pm

October 31, 2013 - 2:15 pm

Molly Swanson - This is just about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! Awesome job! (past years are super cute too!)

October 31, 2013 - 2:14 pm

pinkcoffeephoto - Lance, I’m thinking it will go over as well as Kingston’s mask tonight!!

October 31, 2013 - 2:13 pm

Lance M. - That is awesome! Leland is going as a pirate, with a pirate’s hat. FYI. He hates hats. This should go over well.

October 31, 2013 - 2:08 pm

pinkcoffeephoto - Ha! Thanks Jenn!

October 31, 2013 - 2:00 pm
