Rain or shine, Melissa and Richard were having their maternity photo session with me on our scheduled date. Luckily, it did not rain on us even though we could hear the thunderstorm from far away. Even if it did, we could have taken shelter under the overpass at Riverside Arts Market area. We may have not gotten our sunset's golden light, but we still had so much fun at this session. It was so great getting to know Melissa and Richard. Their wedding videographers are one of our great friends, Doug and Laura with Take One Productions. We even saw a pod of dolphins passing by in the St. Johns River! :) Congratulations to this sweet couple, and I can just tell their baby boy is going to be so loved! :)
I just want to camp out at Justin and Beth's backyard and use it as my "studio" for all of my family photo sessions! The view especially as the sun is setting is breath-taking! Loving the trees' reflection on the lake and just love how everything looks golden :) I am grateful that I got to photograph this family once again but this time with all of their extended families as well :) Justin's parents were celebrating their wedding anniversary (I believe their 40th), and I am glad they had a family portrait done since almost everyone is there anyway!
Love Justin and Beth's blended family, and I am so grateful that they had asked me to take their photos once again :) Here's a recap of our past sessions:
