James Family | Lifestyle Session | Jacksonville, FL | Cobalt & Co.

Matt and Sierra recently purchased their stunning home near the beach with the help of their agent, Kavie Stahl of Caldwell Banker Vanguard Realty.  My husband and I are building a house right now and I would be lying if I said I didn't get some design inspiration from this couple's gorgeous home.    

I mean, hello bright white crisp & clean kitchen!  But as much as I loved their design, what stood out the most to me was the love that filled their home.  So much laughter.  So much cuteness.  So many snuggles.  Talk about #goals.    

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I absolutely love in-home sessions.  I just don't think traditional portraits can capture this level of love and intimacy.  Whether it's a milestone event or just because, I would be honored to do the important work of documenting your life and love.       

Parks Family | Lifestyle Session | Jacksonville, FL | Cobalt & Co.

The Parks Family is truly the definition of 'adorable'.  We're talkin' a-freakin-dorable.  Just see for yourself:  

A family that includes their pets is always a winner in my book.  And even though I'm totally the girl that goes to a party and makes friends with the dogs, I have to admit, Hadley totally stole this show.  Have you ever seen such a real life doll?

In-home sessions are always my fave.  Don't get me wrong, I love a good portrait, but there is just something so sweet and intimate about capturing real families in the midst of their real lives.  If my *ahem* thirty years have taught me anything, it's that change is the only constant and life moves far quicker than you expect - and rumor has it, this is even more true when you have children.  My greatest hope is that the images I create will invoke warm memories as families grow and evolve.  

This session was a complimentary gift from Kavie Stahl of Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty.
