Jacksonville FL Child Photographer {Holiday Twinkle Mini Session!}

Its that time of year! Its TWINKLE TIME! I love twinkle mini sessions. They are always so fun and so cute. I love seeing all the little ones in the Christmas outfits, whether its their super dressy outfits, the cute little holiday outfits, or special Christmas pajamas! Each little one always brings so much fun into the studio and totally gets me into the Christmas spirit! I walk (limp) away from the day feeling super ready for the holiday season to get here.

I have WAY too many to showcase them all, but I wanted to show off some of my favorites from this year. Enjoy!

Jacksonville, FL Child Photographer {C and C go back to school!}

These adorable little ones just happen to go to church with me. Their mom and I became friends pretty soon after I joined our church. In fact, she was one of the first people to talk to me and make me feel welcome. When mom came to me to see if I could do a school theme session for her kiddoes, of course I said yes. I love back to school sessions. they are always so much fun. We decided to do a greenery area and I just brought a few of my school props as well as this gorgeous desk I borrowed from a friend.

It was a great night for the session. It wasn’t too hot and the light was so nice. C and C were both adorable as always, and totally hammed it up for the camera. I just can’t get enough of these precious faces.

Have a wonderful school year you guys!

Jacksonville, FL Family Photographer {Galy Family | Beach Session}

I first met this absolutely stunning family at their youngest littles newborn session. At that point, I had only done a few lifestyle newborn sessions, and their newborn session turned me to the full love of lifestyle. I had such a wonderful time capturing their life in those early days with baby Weston so when mom contacted me for a beach family session to celebrate Weston’s first birthday I was totally down with it. It took us FOREVER to get to the session though. It rained and poured each and every day we scheduled and rescheduled. I think we rescheduled 5 times, at least, before we were able to actually do the session. But OH what a blessing it was to wait. The weather this evening was absolutely spectacular and we got some of my favorite images of all time.
This gorgeous momma is also a photographer, which is sometimes quite intimidating when I photograph other photographers, but she is such a pleasure to work with! She knew exactly what she wanted and after she told me, relaxed and just let me get it done. And I think the photos speak for themselves because they are so gorgeous.

Enjoy the images!

Jacksonville, FL Family Photographer {Smith Family | Sunrise at the Beach}

When this momma contacted me to book her session, she said the words sunrise and I immediately was like “ummm” because if you know me, you know that mornings are not my thing. I much prefer to sleep the day away and stay up all night. However, once we talked and she explained that her sweet little twins preferred the mornings and she really wanted to get some great canvas images, I understood and happily scheduled her session.
The day dawned, well, not really yet, and I headed to the beach. Y’all, it was still pitch black out. I had a minor panic attack moment that maybe the sun wouldn’t come up and we’d be taking photos in the dark, but then calmed as I pulled up to the beach and saw the very first rays peeking over the horizon.

And y’all, this session is now one of my all time favorites. We got SO much variety. We got the very earliest of light all the way to full sunlight. We went from sweet soft pastels, to bright vivid colors, and I am just in love with this gallery. We spent the morning laughing and playing (and maybe a little yawning on my part.) Since we weren’t on a deadline with the sun going down we even got to take a good break so the twins could warm up and relax a bit more.

I hope you enjoy looking at their gallery as much as I did shooting it. If you would like to book a session with a Jacksonville, FL Family Photographer I hope you keep me in mind! Amanda.dennette@gmail.com

Enjoy! Jacksonville, FL Family Photographer

Jacksonville, FL Family Photographer {Extended Family at Walter Jones}

This family contacted me with an urgent request. They were moving to another state and wanted photos done with their family here before they left. I had an opening for that weekend, so we scheduled. Then, of course this being Florida, the forecast called for rain. Rain, rain and more rain. We were so nervous that our one and only shot to do these photos would be rained out. I rushed to the location, and parked, and then the skies opened up. It poured. Then, the sun came out. Then it went away again. Then back out. Then more rain. It was just another regular crazy Florida summer storm.

We decided to just do it anyway. It was so hot and muggy, and the sun kept going in and out, but nevertheless, we all had SUCH a fun time. We played, we joked, we laughed a lot. The kids even got a yummy treat at the end of the shoot because they were rockstars.

I hope this family looks at these photos and remembers all the fun they had living here in Jacksonville, FL, and I hope they remember this session as the perfect way to end their time here.
