Cecely & Charles | Baby Shower | Jacksonville, FL | Cobalt & Co.

Y'all.  I have been Majorly (yep, capital 'M') slacking on updating the blog and social media accounts of Cobalt & Co.  It's only May and yet 2017 has already been the year of All. The. Things. That said, if ever there was a reason to get back to sharing, this baby shower was it!  

How cute is the jungle theme they went with?!

Before the festivities began we snuck away from the guests and grabbed a couple of quick pictures with the family.  Two families becoming one - how sweet is that?

And of course I couldn't resist capturing the adorable soon-to-be-parents on their special day!

The rest of the afternoon was filled with opening gifts, laughter, and lots of love!  I am so glad I got to be part of this special day.  Cecely & Charles, you are going to be the most wonderful parents!

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

The Carlucci Family is another one that I know through church & just adore.  Lauren was the leader of a lifegroup I was part of & I remember the day she announced she was pregnant with their little girl.  They recently sold their home, the first house they shared as a couple & then welcomed their two children into.  

I was so excited when they wanted to have me over for a lifestyle session in their current home.  Originally we were hoping to have me actually come on moving day but as it turned out I was going to be out of town that day.  As much as I loved the idea of documenting such a big day in their lives, I have to say, I think I'm glad I was able to get some pictures in their home while it still looked like theirs. 

Homes are where families gather & grow.  Each room filled with memories.  I don't have children of my own but I can only imagine that despite being excited for a new house & new adventures, you would have to feel some sadness at leaving your child's first home.

I am so happy I was able to capture these memories in & around their home for them. 

Thank you Carlucci Family for trusting me to document this special time in your lives!
