Cousin love

snows and hunts

How adorable are these sweet kiddos?! I mean their personalities and how they dressed for this session gave me all the heart eyes 😍That’s because my good friend Stacy, with Snowblessed Photography, teamed up with her sister in law to plan out their precious outfits. Not only do you have the benefit of perfectly coordinated outfits, but you also have kids that already know how to “ham” it up in front of the camera..it helps to photograph another photographer’s kiddos 👌🏻Thanks Stacy!

It was so fun to get photos of the Snow kids with their cousin, Page ❤️All of them (except Maverick) asked to hold Page at least once during the session! As you can already guess..there were plenty of silly things going on behind the scenes to grab the attention of five kids. I wish I had it on camera! In order to keep them smiling we had tickle fights, had them run, and even told them that a little fairy lives inside of my camera. That last trick definitely worked….at first 😉 In the end, it was easy to get great shots of these beautiful kids!

Go see for yourself…

Sweet Connections

Thacker Family

Meet the Thacker family ❤️When I met this sweet family in person I truly realized what a small world we live in! Stephanie found me on Instagram, so we didn’t know one another prior to the shoot. However, we realized that we both grew up in the same town! How crazy is that? I love the connections we can have with the people we just met.

For our session, we met at the Thacker’s home and it was so cozy and perfect. Their precious pup, Tucker, even joined us for the shoot 🐶It is so obvious that their daughter Hailey is in love with Tucker- I mean you’ll die when you see the photos of those two running and playing together at the end!

Hailey was an adorable ball of energy, and I loved every minute of it 🙌🏻Some of my favorite photos are the ones at the end where she gave me tons of silly poses. This family was such a fun family to meet and work with- my job is the best!

Thacker Family,

I’m so thankful to have met you all! I’m still shocked that we grew up in the same town- I wish we would have met sooner ❤️Thanks again for making our session such a blast!

Until next time…

XOXO, Natalie

The Wind Never Bothered Them Anyway

Johnson Family

Meet the Johnson Family ❤️It was such a pleasure meeting up with them for our session! Do you remember the Paul Family?! They are related to the Johnsons, so it was the perfect way to make a connection. I’m so blessed to have clients who help spread the word about my business in a new area. (Thanks, Amanda! 😘)

I met with the Johnson family at a Park in Rivertown- such a gorgeous area! I’m so thankful that this family was super easy going and willing to be patient. When we pulled into the parking lot…it was pouring outside 💦They were totally fine with waiting out the rain, and also dealing with the crazy wind during our shoot.

Mrs.Becky (their grandmother) was the head honcho of our session and I loved it! She already had plenty of fun posing ideas and groupings in her mind, which made my job extra easy 🙌🏻As you can see in the photos we were able to get plenty of photos of her sweet grandkids..not to mention their newest addition to the family, Nolan.

Check out more of their session below…

Johnson Family,

I enjoyed meeting and working with you all at our photo session! Thank you for dealing with the crazy wind during our shoot. Although I feel like that just proved how great of models you were, because you didn’t let it phase you 😜

I hope we get to work together again in the future!

Until next time…

XOXO, Natalie

Running to the Finish Line

Carter Cockerham

Meet Carter Cockerham! He is finally a senior this year, and is thrilled about graduating and moving on to the next adventure in his life. If I were to sum up this entire session with Carter…I would say that he was an absolute trooper! Sunrise session + 38 degrees + windy beach + Carter in running gear (a.k.a. shorts and tank) = NO complaints from Carter 🙌🏻To say that I was impressed is an understatement!!

As you’ll see in the photos, we decided to have our first session at Ponte Vedra ☀️ This is a place that Carter has spent much of his time growing up! Though Carter was homeschooled, he had the opportunity to run cross country with both Creekside AND Bartram high schools. You heard that right…two schools that rival each other 👊🏻It was so neat to capture him in his favorite place while doing what he loves!

His momma, Kat, and his sister, Katy Anne, joined us that morning for the session. They were so much fun to have around during the shoot! In between outfit changes we kept running into the restroom to warm up. The best part of the whole morning was when they treated me to a yummy breakfast at the end 😍I SO enjoyed my time with the Cockerham clan!
