Lehmann Family | Jacksonville Family Photographer

I've known Ed for over 20 years now. He's been a major part of my life and one of the many reasons I am where I am today. It started when he was one of my youth group leaders at a small church in Ponte Vedra when I was only 13 years old. Not only did he help to instill good and God honoring values into my life as a youth, but since I was still too young to drive he would give me and my friend Ryan rides to the Mayport Poles to go surfing AND he always paid for the parking. (Don't think I've forgotten about that Ed!)

Fast forward a little bit and when I was 18 years old Ed took me on a mission trip to Peru. It was there that I met Melanie for the first time. She was the co-leader for that trip and went on to become Ed's wife afterwards. So that is part of how this whole thing you're about to see below got started. :)

So the Lehmann's will always be near and dear to me. When I got the call to do some family portraits for them I was very excited. They have two beautiful (and energetic!) kiddos who are growing up WAY too fast. But that's ok because they made the photo shoot very NOT boring.

Ed currently works at The Church of Eleven22 (and was the one who got me connected with The DEMP Project from this post) but will venturing out later this year to answer a tremendous call on his life to start a new church as Lead Pastor. It will still be here in Jacksonville and knowing Ed the way I do, and his passion for God, it's going to be awesome!

Sunny 8 Months | Jacksonville Baby Photographer

If you've been following along with me on here then you might remember a very special shoot I did earlier this year for my close friends Ashley and Jimbo. (If you missed it here is the link. You should click it. Sunny's Newborn Shoot)

Sunny is now 8 months old and looking cuter then ever. Take a look at their latest family shoot we did this past weekend at the UNF nature trails.

Suzanne C. Photography Promo (VIDEO)

Every photographer's dilemma—you get hired a lot to take pictures of other people's families but rarely do you have an opportunity to be on the other side of the camera with your own family.

When Suzanne gave me the call about being interested in doing a promo video, I took one look at her work and knew right away that I wanted her to be MY photographer! Take a look at the promo video I made for her as well as the family session she shot for me.

Sunny Clementine

Where do I start with this one?

Ashley, Jimbo and myself go back 20 years. Two of the most God loving people I know and two of my best friends on this planet. We have been all over the world together and we have more memories than I can even begin to recount.

For those of you who share with me in the privilege of calling these two your friends, then you also share with me in the absolute JOY it is to see the miracle and blessing that has come into their lives in the form of little precious Sunny Clementine. She is the long awaited answer to many years of bold and faithful prayers.

Born on the side of the road and spending the first month of her life in a neonatal intensive-care unit, she has fought through and now finds herself as part of a new family with a mom and dad who will love her more than anything else in this world. And above all, they will show her the love of Jesus.

Congratulations to Ashley, Jimbo and Sunny on your new journey together as a family. We love you!!!
