Courtney and Justin live in Ohio and were down here visiting some friends. We met up to get some pictures of their adorable 7 month old daughter. Jaelynn was a natural in front of the camera. And check out those baby rolls! Aren't they awesome?
There are places where the light has a magical quality that cannot be described. And for me, finding one of these places is like letting a two year-old loose in Toys 'r" Us for the first time. Feelings of giddiness, awe, excitement - it's like being let in on some special secret. I often wonder what the people behind me think when I slam on my brakes because I've spotted one of these magical places out of the corner of my eye as I'm speeding down the road. This empty lot is just down the street from my house and I've tucked it away before as a potential location for a session but yesterday when we drove by there was something so amazing in the warmth. Maybe tomorrow it will go back to being just a cool spot for a session, but yesterday, it was magic.

First blog post - finally! We started the day off with brunch at our friends' house feasting on a whole variety of seafood and then had dinner with grandpa at a local restaurant on the beach. It was wonderful and relaxing. At brunch we had amazing eggs benedict, raw oysters from New Orleans, yellowtail snappers from the Bahamas baked in a crust of salt, stone crabs from Chokoloskee (west coast of Florida) with the yummy mustard dipping sauce, and shrimp cooked in some kind of wonderful butter sauce. Thanks John and Steph for having us over! Everything was delicious.
