Abigail Ruby Maxwell was born on April 10 at 9:10 at North Florida Regional Medical Center. I got to be there the moment her big sister Ella met her for the first time. Such a beautiful interaction to witness. I’m so happy for my friends Chelsea and Brandon on the new addition to their family.
Autumn and her baby girl were the first wildflower minis of the year. What a beautiful mother and daughter to start with. This flower field is in Hampton, Fl and is my favorite place to take photos. Enjoy! I have 2 spots open for mini sessions on May 5. Message me if you are interested.
These ladies were looking their best last Valentine’s Day at The Thomas Center in Gainesville, Fl. Elizabeth told her mommy that she wanted to “Take photos with Jamie”. She is always the perfect model.
About a year ago, I got an email from someone in the Philippines who was raising money to hire a photographer in Gainesville, Florida. The parents of the newborn baby boy flew around the world to get treatment at UFHealth. He was in need of a heart transplant. I met Hunter Fenix and his parents a year ago and their story is extraordinary. He got his heart when he was 4 months old and his first birthday was really something to celebrate. Happy 1st Birthday Hunter!

The Maxwell family is adding a new addition to their family of 3 in April 2019, making 4 year old Ella a big sister/best friend. I can’t wait to have a new little model to photograph, but Ella will always be my favorite!
Stranger: “Why is your hair red?”
Ella: “Because I eat a lot of carrots.”
Diego turned one and had a wonderful time smashing a cake! He is a future model for sure! One year olds are my absolute favorite photography subjects. Everything they do is cute and they can’t run away from me yet!
TBT to my first newborn shoot with Kathleen, David, and Baby Joseph. This was back in 2015. I have learned so much since then, but I am grateful for the experience. (Not such a baby) Joseph is now a big brother.
First time this family has been together in 10 years. We got everyone together at the historic Thomas Center to photograph the occasion.
Location: The Thomas Center
One of my favorite families to photograph. I have loved watching these two as they experience life’s great joys. This shoot was one of the hardest I have done with a newborn, 2 year old, and 2 dogs, but those smiles make it all worth it. (And puppy snuggles)
Baby Gwen did me the honor of being so calm. She was the perfect model and she has made her parents incredibly happy.
