Mr. A is TWO!

I don’tjacksonville children photographer cake smash simply newborn photography normally schedule cake smashes for kids older that one, but when this handsome fella’s mom asked if I would do one at two since we weren’t able to do it on his 1st birthday I said SURE!  You may remember this little guy from his 6 month portraits, how could you forget those cheeks?!?

Mr. A was full of mischief and once he touched the frosting…it was all over!  He was clearly not into the cake and let us know.  I may be weird but sometime the crying pictures are my favorite.

View the rest of his gallery here!

We attempted to make a Facebook Live video
of his session and I am glad we did…it isn’t all glamour this life of photography.  I always giggle a little to myself when someone says “I have a friend with a nice camera who is going to do our pics”.  Because there is SO much more than a camera required.  Your memories are worth the investment in a professional.  Who knows, your child may scream the entire time, will your friend with a camera still get good quality images?  You invest in more than an expensive camera when you pay for professional photography.  Ready to plan your session?  Contact us today!

Miss C is One!

jacksonville photographer simply newborn cake smash first birthdayMiss C is One!  I have had the pleasure of photographing little miss C since she came to the studio for her newborn sessions when she was just a few days old.  She is one of the most photogenic kids I have ever worked with….even if she mean mugs me half the time!   I was really excited when her mommy contacted me about planning a cake smash session for her.  Even if I cannot wrap my head around her being one already.

Miss C’s mommy made this adorable cake and her awesome banner too!    Much like her newborn session Miss C played hard to get…thankfully we were able to get some adorable images of her 1st birthday milestone.  I mean…the one of her looking at her newborn portrait..COME ON, stop the cuteness!!!  Even when she’s giving me her serious stare she is just a doll face! <3

Well, it seems Miss C isn’t a big fan of cake.  I cannot relate, at all!  However we were able to capture her sweet little spirit despite her distaste for cake.

 

Take a peek at her complete gallery here!

Alice In ONEderland Cake Smash | Jacksonville Newborn Photographer | Simply Newborn Photography

When Miss K’s mommy contacted me about her cake smash I was ECSTATIC!!  Alice in Wonderland is one of my all time favorite stories!  I immediately started searching for the perfect props to make my vision come alive.  there were a lot off Alice in ONEderland themed mins on Pinterest, but I wanted something unique.  When my cake goddess, Liberty of Creative Cakes by Liberty,  moved away I knew no one would ever be able to meet my expectations like Liberty did.  So I challenged myself to learn to make and decorate cakes….this is BY FAR my favorite.   Miss K. wasn’t too impressed with the cake but she surprised both her momma and me with tons of adorable images!  Can I take a moment to brag on mommy for this adorable Alice inspired tutu outfit!  Come on, how adorable!!!!  You can view her entire gallery here.

Back to School Minis!

If you are anything like me, then Back to School time is a busy time for your family.  Before the new school year dust settles we are inundated with homework, rules, paperwork fundraisers, and fall school portraits.  If you are anything like me you forget your child has picture day and they end up in an old t-shirt with bedhead!!   I always feel obligated to buy the terrible photos anyway because, well,  because it is my baby!!  I can’t just let them throw pictures away of my baby!!  Not to mention keeping the tradition alive of keeping a school photo each year and comparing growth from one grade to the next.  Well after a few years of less than stellar school pictures I decided to be proactive this year and take my kiddos back to school photos, Simply Newborn style!

Squishy newborn baby girl | Simply Newborn Photography | Jacksonville Newborn Photographer

Squishy newborn baby girl Simply Newborn Photography Jacksonville Newborn Photographer

This adorable and squishy baby girl was in the studio a few weeks ago!  Is there really anything better than a squishy baby?????

She made me work HARD for these shots, but I am ridiculously patient.  Babies…fair warning, I ALWAYS win!!  Lol.

I really love how these images turned out.

When I made the decision to eliminate bold colors in my prop stash and use only neutrals I KNEW I was going to love it!!!!  What a timeless, classic gallery this lucky momma gets. 🙂   I want to have them in MY house!

Serious props to her big brother, he was so well behaved and really set the bar for sibling shots!

If you are expecting, make sure you book BEFORE you deliver.  We are almost booked for the year.  It makes me sad to turn people away because we are booked and they didn’t book ahead of time.

You can view their entire gallery here.

Milestone Session | Jacksonville Children’s Photographer | Simply Newborn Photography

2016-09-02_0005

It is always wonderful when a family chooses to work with you over again.  I have had the pleasure of working with this family since Miss M. was a newborn.

I cannot believe this is the last milestone session before this little man is ONE….time flies when you’re having fun I guess!  I have really enjoyed watching Mr. C grow, but I am a tad sad he is getting so big so fast!!

For this milestone we ventured to Riverside.  We had beautiful weather and thankfully NO RAIN!  I think you would agree that we were able to get some adorable images to document his 10.5 months!

You can view his entire gallery here!

Big sister was a little sad this wasn’t her session so I snuck in a few of her…I cannot believe she is so grown up!!  Seems like yesterday we were rocking and shushing her so she would fall asleep for her newborn session.

I hope you enjoy the many faces of Miss M. as much as I do!
Such a gorgeous little one…daddy may be in trouble when she is older. <3

Jacksonville Children’s Photographer | Simply Newborn Photography | Change of Color

Jacksonville children's photographer simply newborn photography change of color children's clothesI had the absolute honor of working with Ingrid Wilson of Ingrid Wilson Photography and Dena Powell of Everyday Moments Photography during a recent collaboration with Change of Color.  We spent a fun filled morning capturing Change of Color’s new line of children’s shirts.  These shirts embrace and celebrate the beauty of children of color.  Not only are the shirts totally adorable but the company itself stands for something pretty amazing!  Their mission statement says it all… “Change of Color – kids clothing is increasing representation of kids of color and encouraging all kids to make a statement through fashion about embracing diversity and inclusion.”  I am on love with these shirts and the movement behind it.

No child should feel like they cannot relate to their world, even in something we take for granted like a book, a movie or on their own clothing.

If you haven’t checked out their clothes you’re missing out!  I cannot wait to get one of each for my babies! They are having a special opening celebration, enjoy 20% off using the code “GRAND”!!! ❤️❤️

Summer is coming to an end…. | Pregnancy reveal | Jacksonville Newborn Photographer

2016-08-14_0001

When my sister told me she was expecting her second child, I knew the reveal session would have to be amazing!!  Hours of brainstorming and scouring Pinterest looking for inspiration and I just kept seeing the same things over and over.  I wanted to do something unique and fun for this reveal.

While bouncing ideas back and forth and playing with different sayings one day while on the phone with my dear sis, the phrase “Summer is coming to an end.  But…soon I’ll have a brand new friend” popped out of my mouth!  Guess all that rhyming in First grade pays off!

It was only fitting that we had a pool and summer themed reveal because Little Mr. B has recently become obsessed with his boogie board…so the planning and session design began to make this vision come true!

I am so happy with how it turned out!  We also tried out a new way to reach you guys with our first FaceBook Live video…it was a lot of fun!  I hope you were able to log in a watch the process.  If not you can Check it out here!  here!   I look forward to offering more in the future.

I am always asked how long my sessions are…well they aren’t timed.  This session lasted about 9 minutes start to finish.  YES you really can get amazing pictures in less than 10 minutes!!  You have to plan ahead and go in with a specific vision and a plan…and a backup plan, just in case!

Little ones are not going to cooperate for an hour long session so why waste your precious time by promising a certain number of minutes.  Instead, we promise you high quality images, regardless of how long it takes.

So if you are a little put off that we don’t offer sessions by the half hour and hour, that’s why.  We take the time that’s needed to get the images you will love….10 minutes or 45….whatever it takes.
