Matt and Heather - My lovely friends and clients.
We shot their wedding in Virginia [ her home state ] about three years back, Heather has been a good friend and she has been with us since we started our photography business about 10 years back and we have been through a journey of pure love with both of them.
Wanting to have the adored family, somehow it was not in the cards to naturally conceive.
They opted to go the IVF route and it has succeeded and at the end of
What a wonderful time we had with Michelle B in Jacksonville, FL for her graduation portraits - She had a few ideas for her portraits and we delivered her vision!
We started at her home, and brought the studio to her for easy access [ this is what we do!] and then headed out with her mother who came along for the fun, while we photographed her in the downtown area. Isn't Jacksonville's skyline beautiful??
