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!

Till Next time, Melody

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!

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)

Thank you so much to this wonderful family for allowing me to capture them!

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.

Waiting for blue….. Lake City FL Maternity Portraits | Lake City FL Maternity Portrait Photographer

Last month I had the pleasure of meeting Jane & Ben while they were waiting for their precious little boy. We met at O’Leno & as Ben let the Civil Engineer inside himself love the bridge, we capture some wonderful photos & had fun.

Maternity portraits are some of my favorites as these momma’s to be just glow & are extra gorgeous as they await the new arrival.

“A baby is God’s way of saying that life should go on.” ❤

Thank you Ben & Jane for allowing me to capture this special time in your life.

The Ruark Family Lake City FL Family Portrait Photographer | Lake City FL Family Photographer

Late in May, I met up for the first time with the Ruark family. Of course when I saw the color palette they choose I was excited (especially for an 8am session the morning after shooting a wedding).  The girls did wonderful & even enjoyed photos together! We got to play, chase some dragonflies & enjoy the gorgeous morning at one of our local parks. A beautiful setting for a beautiful family.
