Mermaid Sessions/ St. Augustine, Florida

I am so excited to announce that we will now be offering MERMAID SESSIONS for all!    The tails and pictures were such a hit, we've decided to expand on the mermaid madness.  :)
St. Augustine, Florida is a magical, nautical haven... a perfect place for mermaids!  Now with the help of Applejack Apparel and Ashley Rita Photography, mermaids have come to life!
Here's how YOU can book your very own mermaid session to capture your child's state of wonder, innocence and imagination forever.
Sessions need to be booked at least 2 weeks in advance, for tail availability.




If you would like to book your mermaid session, please email
Thank you!

St. Auggie Photo Contest

So.... way back when, I entered a contest up in Jackson- first place was some kind of monetary prize.  I didn't win it.  And honestly, it wasn't what I was after. 

I wanted my piece to be hung and displayed.  As any passionate artist knows, having your piece looked at, oooh'd and ahhhh'd over is worth so much more than money.

I did happen to place and my piece was chosen to hang in the Jackson County Health Department.  Go check it out sometime! ;)

Since moving back home (st. Augustine) I've been crazy busy with a billion different things.  Photography needs to start making a come back in my life down here.  I thought, what a better way than a St. Augustine contest?

So.... here's the pic:

This was taken shortly after we moved back (last June).  The sun was settting- it was that magical twilight hour that turns everything an orange sorbet color.  Maeve was skipping up and down the hill by the fort- the same hill I had spent countless hours rolling and running on at her age.  Full circle comes to mind when I see this photo.

Thank you beautiful St. Augustine for these moments and memories.

PM: Photo Challenge/ HAND

I snapped this while my Stellsy was sleeping... she had her hand curled up around her face.  So sweet! :)

my very first "I Heart Faces" challenge!

I LOVE participating in online photography communities (that's no secret ;)  But I this will be my first time with "I Heart Faces."  I think the sheer volume and size of their following has kind of freaked me out in the past.  However, the theme is black and white... and I just happen to lovvvvve black and white.  I figured now is as good a time as any to hop on the IHF bandwagon.  Won't you join too?

ahhhh!  How cute is she???  And of course, (of COURSE) I'm just loving the clean looking, negative space.

Remember to head on over toI Heart Faces for more entries, and to enter your own b&w! :) 

PS.  I have absolutely no clue how they will ever pick a winner because there are hundreds (HUNDREDS!) of stunning entries!  WOW! :)

b/w Photo Challenge.

I LOVE B/W photos!  Picking just one for this challenge was hard!  :) 

This is my Stellabella Junebug and my hubby... on the beach. 

I love the negative space... the look on Stell's face and my husbands strong hands.

I'm still having issues with the PM photo challenge button working!  But click here for the sweet contest!

Photo Challenges (a NEW one:)

I found this sweet blog through Ashley Sisk... and I am so excited to be linking up to the challenge for the  first time evvvverrrr :)
So the prompt for this challenge was "Favorite."  It is literally impossible for me to pick a fave photo.  As the mother of these 3 amazing, beautiful kids, every photo I take is a "fave" to me :)  So instead, I took the prompt and turned it into one of our "favorite" things to do:  go to the beach:)
