A Mother’s Love….. Lake City, FL Family Portrait Photographer

Back in July I met up with this wonderful mother of 2 gorgeous girls for her FIRST EVER professional portrait session. Every time I hear people say, “I’ve never had professional portraits done” I am so happy they decided to do it for their family & honored they chose me to capture this moment in time.

I LOVED the outfits she chose, how she kept her girls outfits to fit their personalities & just how much fun we had. And as a bonus the rain waited till we were done!

Thank you so much Shultz family!

Beach. Wedding. Love. St. Augustine FL Wedding Photographer | St. Augustine FL Professional Wedding Photographer

I love the beach. I love beautiful brides. I love good food. I love a relaxed atmosphere. This wedding had all of this & more. It was perfection. A small, intimate ceremony & reception. Just family & a few close friends. Celebrating with them.

Starting out with everyone meeting at the bar of The Reef restaurant near Vilano Beach, FL. Everyone was so relaxed, happy, & just enjoying this time together. Even when the bride arrived, there was no big to do, everyone hugged, commented how gorgeous she looked (which. She totally did.) & laughed some more. Then they headed down to the beach for their vows & back up to enjoy food & cake. It couldn’t be easier.

Even though it was July, once the sun set a bit it was not terribly hot at all. The sea breeze was wonderful & as always the ocean provided a gorgeous backdrop to make their day even more special. Even though this was only my second wedding (to see images from the May Rustic Country wedding click here) I think I am getting the hang of weddings…..& enjoying doing them. 😉  If you want to see more from Tom & Koley’s wedding you can check out their PASS album here.

Thank you so much Tom & Koley for letting me celebrate with you & capture this special day!

Sweet Miss Lila is 6 Months Jacksonville FL Photographer | Jacksonville FL Infant Photographer

Earlier this summer I met up with Miss Lila…I had capture her parents while they were waiting on her arrival & even got to trek to the hospital to meet her. 😉 But I LOVE watching these babies grow. 

She is the happiest, smiliest baby I have seen since Kylie was little. So sweet, so silly, so perfection.  ❤ Her session was supposed to be beachside, but due to a storm we were moved inside to a lifestyle session. I think it worked out beautifully as her room had lots of light & beautiful colors to make for adorable portraits. 

Thank you so much Moore family for letting me capture Miss Lila again!

Waiting on Baby Cash….. Lake City FL Maternity Portrait Photographer | Lake City FL Professional Photographer

Earlier this summer I had the chance to meet up with the wonderful Meek family. I had met them last fall for Fall Minis, where they told me they were wanting a new little addition soon  & we got a shot of the family boots (plus one) for their announcement to their family. I was SO excited when I learned Baby Cash was on his way (& saw the announcement, too cute!). He was supposed to be an August baby he decided July was better.

I know you are enjoying the sneak peeks of this handsome little man, but I wanted to share this session which turned our beautifully despite that it was raining…the whole time…that’s right. An entire session in the rain. ;- )  Who knew White Springs had so much to offer that included rain covering.

Thank you so much to the Meek family for allowing me to capture this journey as you become a family of 4. ❤

Waiting on Luke…… Lake City FL Maternity Portrait Photographer | Lake City FL Maternity Portraits

This week you will get to see sneaks of little Luke at only 15 days old (& he rocked it!), but before that why not look back to when his parents & big brother were waiting on his arrival. One of my favorite Maternity sessions to date. Gorgeous location, gorgeous momma to be & I loved the colors she styled them in!

O’Leno State Park is one of my favorite places to shoot simply because of how beautiful it is (we are so lucky to live so close) & how I often get to see wildlife when shooting…including a baby deer.  I am always happy when clients want to shoot there as I know I can get a variety of backgrounds & poses for the session. 😉

Thank you so much Jordan family & congratulations again!

To see Luke’s newborn sneak peeks, keep up with all things Melody Coarsey Photography & more be sure to like us on Facebook & follow on Twitter! To see about scheduling a Maternity session while you await your new arrival head to the Melody Coarsey Photography website!

A Family is……Love Lake City FL Family Portrait Photographer | Lake City FL Photographer

Earlier this summer, I was lucky to be able to capture two gorgeous girls, their momma, nana, Aunt & cousins as their cousins were visiting from out of town.  (I know my mom would LOVE a session like this)

I LOVED the color scheme they choose & all the kids did fabulous! Making my job easy. (I love when that happens, lol)

A Princess Tea Party & more… Lake City FL Family Portrait Photographer | Lake City FL Child Portraits

Back in June (I am SO far behind on blogging, lol), I photographed one of my daughter’s best friends for her 4th birthday. Early morning at one of our gorgeous local parks (seriously, these parks in the morning have AMAZING light….absolute perfection).

Her mother had mentioned a few ideas & asked if I could get a wash tub, but it wasn’t till I got there I knew exactly what her mom had in mind. I take ZERO credit for this concept. It was all her mom (& a little bit Pintrest I hear, lol). I love when clients have ideas they picture in their heads & want me to make a reality. I love themes, fun ideas, fun props, all you creative parents out there bring. 😉

Miss Allie did beautifully & enjoyed herself (with multiple clothing changes per her request). I have been photographing her since she was two & it’s amazing to watch these cuties grow. I love my clients. I love that they come back to me. I love that I get to watch their children grow each year. I love what I do.

Growing & growing…. Jacksonville Beach FL Photographer | Jacksonville Beach FL Baby Photographer

Of course, even though I no longer take my camera everywhere & snap unlimited images of my girls or family (which is kinda sad when you think about it…..*sigh* I need to do it more), I always make time for the milestones! My sweet niece turned 3 Months Old (& had her baptism the same weekend)!  Such a little cutie who is loved by all her family (including her cousins), though she’s not 100% sure about the camera…she prefers when it’s just my smiling face. 😉

I can’t hold back anymore…check out all her cuteness!
