When Pinterest Comes to Life

Guys.  This family.  It's like they stepped off a pinterest board and straight in front of my camera.

I'm not sure how this momma has managed to have not just one but two of the sweetest, kindest, and most respectful teenagers out there, but she sure has!

The older I get, the more I realize how quickly time flies.  Kids grow and go off to college.  Parents, do yourself a favor and document these moments while you can!   

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.       

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!
