Eubanks Family | North Florida Family Portrait Photographer | Studio386

Had the privilege several weeks ago to photograph the Eubanks family.  Arnett and Crystal are local to this area, but are currently in the middle of a three year long missions trip to Africa.  While I know many people who go on missions trips for a week or two, and yes do a great deal of good, there's just something about heading off to Africa for several years, selling your home, and leaving your family, friends, and jobs for that long that really impresses me. 

I was so pleased to be able to capture some fun family memories for them while they were home on a Christmas trip.  Hope you enjoy looking through their images!

I was excited to recently have been invited to participate in A Bridal and Prom Event in Branford that was produced by Jennifer Kelley Lublin Photography and Suzette Maddox of The Flower Shop

Other participating vendors were Marlene Tompkins (hair and makeup), Aimee Lee (hair and makeup), Maggie Platz (nails), Marcia Hunt (cakes and baked goods), and Lorisa Calloway (I DO Bridal and Prom Rentals).

Models for the day were: Mariah Clayton, Taylor Stevenson, Tonya Burns, Catherine Trisch, Dusti Derringer, and Sara Scaggs.  They all did a wonderful job, as did the hair and makeup artists getting them ready for the day!

The public was treated to an open house as part of the event, and were able to stop by The Flower Shop to pick up a swag bag and meet all the participants.  I had so much fun participating and capturing these amazing images!!

Hope you enjoy:

Christmas comes but once a year!

The annual Christmas Special is always one of my favorite events of the year.  It combines getting to work with a wonderful local business as someone else always acts as the host site for the shoot, Christmas memories for families who are having portraits made, and the act of giving portrait memories as gifts in most cases.

This year, the special was held at a local business called A Perfect Setting.  They are a wonderful catering and event cooridnation company that have a great huge building right in the middle of Branford.  If you're planning a wedding or even something as simple as a baby or bridal shower, give them a call.  You won't be disappointed!

A Perfect Setting provided the beautiful decor for the Christmas scene and we had almost record setting attendance from people getting portraits for gifts and Christmas cards.  Hope you enjoy this sneak peek of some of my favorites from the weekend!

The Walker Kids

When a friend asked if I would be interested in taking a group shot of her husband's grandparent's great-grandchildren (did you follow all that right?) for Christmas, I immediately jumped on board.  I love the act of giving portrait memories for gifts!

We started talking ages.  5, 3, 2, 2, almost 2, almost 1.   Wow.

It was actually a great deal of fun!  We started out in the studio, then made our way to Ivy Memorial Park in Branford when the kids got ready for some outside fun.  We ended up getting the much-needed group shot, and some fun others as well.

Good times with old friends

Loving life in a small town may seem strange to some, but for me it's peaceful and fun.  Little added bonuses exist, like remaining friends with people you went to high school with.  I had the opportunity today to photograph Lola, a beautiful 5 week old little princess.  Her Mom Jana and her Aunt Joy were two of those great friends in high school.  Though we might not see each other often in the course of our busy lives, I am thankful that old friendships can be picked up at any time.  We had a wonderful morning hanging out at Jana and Emory's house and taking Lola's newborn portraits.  Proud big brother Gavin, a second grader with an impressive curiosity about camera equipment, helped me out by keeping track of my lenses and occasionally joining the family for a few pictures.  Dad Emory even stopped by for a few minutes in the middle of his busy day to join in for a family shot and some sweet Daddy/Daughter moments.  Hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed creating them.
