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!!

Ansley Randall (A.R. Studios)

Ansley is a graphic designer based here in Jacksonville, but she has clients all over the country! We worked together for almost two years, and I was constantly impressed with her style and creativity. She can take even the lamest idea and make it look good. :) She’s in the process of updating her portfolio and needed some fresh images, so we went to a local coffee shop and pretended we were the only people there while we had our own little photo shoot!


PS – I’ll post a link to Ansley’s website when she gets it updated. :)

Local Love – The Player’s Championship


We don’t play golf. Or watch it. Or know who any of the players are. We don’t even like preppy clothes. ;)

But we had the BEST time at The Players Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach last week. Food, friends, and people watching at it’s best! One of Anderson’s college friends was in town, and he loves golf. So Anderson got us all tickets to the tournament! The Players Championship crew works hard to create a fun atmosphere with lots of entertainment, aside from the actual golf tournament – we spent most of our time in the Kid Zone!

It was a beautiful day for playing and people watching, and I guess for golf too!

Mother’s Day

I got up before my guys this morning and got dressed for church before waking them up. (Side note: This never happens!) Turns out I should have waited to put on my makeup, because they surprised me with this video and I cried off every bit of it. :)
