One of my favorite parts of being a photographer is getting to watch families grow. There are few other professions in the world where you get to be a part of so many life-changing moments throughout a person's life. I originally met Ashley and Rich for a maternity...
first year session Cuteness overload! Aryan turns ONE! // jacksonville family photographer
One year before his first year session, I got adorable newborn pictures of sweet Aryan….Just when I thought it didn’t get any cuter, Aryan turns one and we have his first year session at Hanna Park on Jacksonville Beach. Thanks to his gorgeous parents, Theresa and Karun, the blend of them equals a BEAUTIFUL or HANDSOME, I should say, child! I must admit that I’m a few months late blogging this session.. Hey, I’m trying to play catch up! I gasped when I realized I never blogged about Aryan. Let’s just say when you’re that cute, you’re going on the blog! 😉
His mama Theresa was searching for the perfect lion hat for his first year session. She told me that his name means lion, so it was so fitting. She made sure to put the hat on him on a regular bases before the session so that he was used to wearing it. What a great idea! I can’t tell you how many times kids just won’t wear the amazing prop during their session! I’m going to start recommending this to all of my parents with toddlers!
When we arrived at Hanna Park, the weather couldn’t be more perfect. I’m all about some gorgeous sun flare and gorgeous people! Aryan was ready for his one year session. I know there wasn’t a cake to smash, but he smashed the session anyway! 😉 I was so thankful we could start in the wooded area, and I even brought a log stump that I found on the side of the road for Aryan’s little seat! It turned out PERFECT! I just can’t even… there I said it.
If you’re friends with Karun and Theresa, you’ll quickly see that they are both talented photographers, so I’m very thankful that they chose me as their family photographer! (Tripods with kids just don’t work out all the time! 😉
Theresa and Karun, I can’t wait to watch your beautiful family grow. Thanks again for choosing me!

Now look at this gorgeousness!!
Jacksonville has had a bit of a rough weather patch for the last month or so - and it's been wreaking havoc on my photo sessions. I'm starting to think that North Florida missed the memo that spring was a few months ago! However, the weather has finally decided to...
