Little Miss Penny!-Jacksonville Newborn Photographer-Simply Newborn Photography



Ok, Come on!  Stop the cuteness!

I have known Miss Penny’s family since her big brother was just 3 months old.  I enjoyed following his growth with milestone sessions and was SUPER excited to learn that he was going to be a BIG BROTHER!

I truly love each and every one of my clients and this sweet family is no exception.

When styling her session, Penny’s mom said the words all newborn photographer live to hear…”I love everything you do, I trust you.”

Now don’t get me wrong , I love Pinterest, but no creative soul wants a board full of “must haves”.  I don’t mind the occasional “inspiration” but Pinterest almost stifles my creativity.

I LIVE to create beautiful, unique art for each and every one of my clients. Thank you all for always supporting me and allowing me to make your and my visions come true in your images!

Enjoy Miss Penny’s entire gallery here.

Miss E Turns 3!!!

Miss E is THREE!!  To say this child is adorable is an understatement.  It always makes me feel a lllliiiitle old when I photography Miss E, because you see, I used to babysit her mommy….oh about 20 years ago.  Sighhhhh.

Anyway, moving on.  We had SO much fun documenting this sassy girl becoming a “threenager”, get it?  Three + teenager!  Ha ah it made me giggle…

She was Harry Potter for Halloween so we just HAD to get some in it!  Miss E also has a special love of Disney’s newest princess Elena of Avalor.

Twin Newborn Session – jacksonville newborn photographer simply newborn photography newborn portrait artist

Double the diapers, double the fun!  I had an absolute blast photographing this adorable newborn twin session!  You may remember this beautiful couple from their maternity session a few weeks ago, well the babies are HERE!  I probably don’t have to tell you but, They. Are. Perfect.

Planning this session was SO fun, these two were my first boy/girl twins since 2012!!  Not only did i get to select items for a girl and a boy but I got to coordinate little outfits for them both…gahhhh so cute!!

I typically only take on 1-2 twin newborn sessions a year so when I do have them I call in reinforcements.  My fellow newborn photographer Brittany from Baby Mine Photography came up from Orlando for the day to lend a helping hand and lend a snuggle.

This is just a small preview of their images. You can view the rest of their gallery here!

2016 what a year!

Last year at this time I sat utterly exhausted, ready to quit and so incredibly sad I had missed what seemed like every event and milestone my children had in 2015.

I have to say, those of you who stuck through it with me will forever be “my people” and thoes who have joined our Simply Newborn Family this year, thank you!  This year I shot the least amount of sessions I have shot in the past 3 years and I couldn’t be happier!  While the changes to my business were hard I knew something had to change or I was going to have to quit.

I started this thing back in 2010 to have a way to destress and help pay for vacations and Christmas, what have you.  It swiftly became a full time job to my already full time job!  So I sat down and made some drastic changes to my schedule, prices and my life!

2016 came with pricing overhaul, SET schedules, and saying NO!  <— that’s hard.  When someone who used to come to you for $100 with all the files wants the old deal, learning to say no and value yourself is not fun or easy.  But in business you have to separate your emotions from business decisions, which is difficult when you’re a creative spirit. There have been many tears and heartaches when I see “my clients” book with other and most certainly cheaper photographers.  That’s when I realized, they weren’t really “my clients”, they were here for the deal.  While that may sound harsh, it is reality.  It is the reality all small business owners face.  Never the less these changes were necessary not only to still financially provide the extras for my family but to still be a PART of my family.  Learning to value my craft and my time and stop being afraid to charge what I am worth has been a heck of an adventure and a learning experience.

I had one of my long time clients, talking back to 2012 when I didn’t even use photoshop..said to me at her consultation “It is about time your prices reflect your talent.  You have undervalued your work for too long!” <3

So here is to MY people!  Lol, 2016 in review <3 I love you all and hope to see you in 2017.

The always fabulous Hooper Family <3

It is a yearly tradition I have come to cherish, my session with the Hooper family! Every year I am amazed at their ability to nail their session in record time.

This year we were met with some extra challenges.  Our original session date was postponed by Hurricane Matthew.

So we set another date only to arrive at the preplanned beach access point to find several photographers and their clients who had their cars broken into and a park ranger who was “going to lock us in”…so needless to say…we hurried to find another nearby beach access with only minutes to spare before sunset.

In pure Hooper fashion these four cranked out smiles and delight and we completed there session with only minute of daylight left.

 

You can view their entire gallery here. 

To say I am thankful for those who continue to support this little business of mine year after year would be an understatement.   Even as I evolve and change my business there are so many of you who continue to allow me to capture your memories.  While I know you could easily go to someone who is offering slightly out of focus images for $30 sessions, you choose my art and trust my vision.  I am eternally gratefully for you all!

Cake smash · children's photographer · photographer

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!
