St. Augustine Wedding – Simply Newborn Photography – Jacksonville Wedding Photographer

I had the honor of photographing a stunning St. Augustine wedding recently.   This ceremony was located at the beautiful Lightner Museum in their atrium and gardens.  I was amazed at how many onlookers just stopped to take in all the love!

Funny story, this bride received a message not long after the wedding that one of these onlookers was actually a distant relative!  When their wedding photo was posted to a family genealogy Facebook group congratulating them this relative said “Hey! My wife and I saw this wedding and had NO idea it was a relative!”  Small world huh???

I am sure you’re probably thinking…but wait…hang on.  Simply Newborn does WEDDINGS?  Well we do not specialize in weddings by any means but we do take a few smaller intimate weddings each year.  We also offer engagement and bridal sessions.  We have had so many inquiries lately that we made a dedicated page just for weddings! Check it out here!

If you are getting married and need Ceremony and Formal Portrait coverage contact us to schedule your consultation. We do not offer reception coverage at this time.

Studio Newborn Session – Jacksonville Newborn Photographer – Simply Newborn Photography

studio newborn Jacksonville simply newborn photography north east florida photographer

I had the sweetest baby girl in the studio a few weeks ago!   Meet Brylee. Sweet, adorable and brand new.  <3

She was full of snuggles and sweet grins.  Keeping with our timeless classic style I selected neutrals and soft pinks for her session. I am currently having a love affair with shadows…just look at the last 4 shots!  How dreamy!

 

During her session we made it a point to recreate the Army Froggy photo we took of her big sister a few years ago.  Some of you may recognize it from the display in our studio!

 

This is just a small sampling of Miss Brylee’s session, view her entire gallery by clicking here.

Here is a little throwback to her big sisters session just 2 years ago!  I am so excited to see her as big sister!

Once Upon a Cake, A sweet tale of how a photographer became a baker – Jacksonville Children’s Photographer – Custom Cake Baker – Simply Newborn Photography

Once Upon a Cake,  A sweet tale of how a photographer became a baker  - Jacksonville Children's Photographer - Custom Cake Baker - Simply Newborn Photography

Once upon a time there lived an incredibly talented cake goddess.  I could text her a jumbled idea of what I waned and she would magically created exactly what I had envisioned.  One day the cake goddess moved far far away to the land of the frozen tundra that is Minnesota.  This left me sad and seeking another baker, but who?

Much to my dismay my search for another baker proved to be difficult.  Many of the ones I had to choose from simply lacked the talent and attention to detail that I was used or they were just difficult to work with.

So what is a girl to do?  Well I am a firm believer in the old adage “If you want something done right, do it yourself.”  So that is EXACTLY what I did.

Over the course of the past 2 years I tasked myself with the goal of becoming a cake master. I have a VERY long way to go but I do truly enjoy creating beautiful things…and what’s better than a beautiful thing you can eat???

I typically only bake for my cake smash clients and family, but if you need a slightly crooked cake made with lots of love I am your girl!

I will say I have always had an appreciation for any creative business, but I am here to tell you that making pretty cakes is HARD.  Each of the cakes pictured in this blog took anywhere from 4-12 hours, yep you read that right HOURS, to create. So kiss your baker and don’t ask for discounts…oh and a tip is probably a good idea too!

Sunset Maternity Session- Jacksonville Maternity Photographer – Simply Newborn Photography

It is not every day that you get to photograph someone you have known for over 20 years.  I have had the honor of knowing Cheryl since she was probably around 6 years old?  Now she is going to be a MOMMY!  Man, that makes me feel ancient.  The sky was spectacular the day of her session and we took complete advantage.  I am not sure there is anything better than a warm golden sunset during a session.  Oh wait…maybe a fresh, squishy newborn baby!

I for one cannot wait to meet Miss H, who is due annnyyyyyy day now.  Be on the lookout for her newborn session once she arrives!
