Nothing better than spending time at the beach with family and friends.  We had a wonderful time photographing this extended family from multiple states during a weekend visit to Atlantic Beach.

Sweet Sixteen Party Invitations

Custom Sweet Sixteen Party invitations are one of the fun advantages of a Sweet Sixteen Photo session.  This 5x7 watercolor postcard comes with envelopes ready to mail to friends.  I've included two versions one's a little closer and takes out the wall to the left.  She's beautiful so it is truly her personal preference.  Both will be gorgeous.  The front may include Sweet Sixteen printed to the left and of course the D logo will not appear on the printed card.  Minimum quantity 50 additional increments of 25 available.

First Birthday Mini Accordion Albums

Mini Accordion Albums are so much fun.  They make great brag books for Mom, Dad, Grandparents and special aunts and best friends.

The album pages will be a little closer up than viewed here because of the cut line on the outside border of the images.

Alli on the beach in Neptune Beach, Florida

Sweet sixteen photo session at the beach

Loved sharing our favorite Neptune Beach locations with Alli and her mom, Shari.  They were visiting Florida from Missouri and because Alli loves the beach, she knew this was the perfect location for her portraits with real sand between her toes.

Carl House Wedding Brooke & Grayson

Grayson and Brooke's wedding was one of the sweetest weddings I have ever photographed.  When couples debate about a First Look I will share with them this precious experience.  The couple shared vows written by each other for each other in a private "ceremony" in a sweet garden setting.  This is a fun couple and it is easy to see the love and caring between them. Here's a little peek.

Repost - Not another macaroni necklace !

I don't know about you but I never really enjoyed the bomb that traditionally went off in my kitchen on Mother's Day.  The memories of breakfast in bed intended to be a luxurious experience were always accompanied by cold pancakes and a sticky kitchen floor.  

I'm starting a new Mother's Day tradition and I hope you'll join me.
Mama & Me is a Mother's Day project that your kids can be a part of 
and that does not require cleaning sticky off every surface in your kitchen.  

Document Mother's Day with a beautiful photo of you with your child/children.

Beautiful, tender photos of you and your children ~ aren't frivolous. 
They're a necessity!
 Because to your children . . . 
YOU are too indispensable to be omitted from their past.

Looking forward to cold pancakes & 
a sticky kitchen floor 
on Mother's Day morning? 

Celebrate Mother's Day 
with a new tradition this year.
"I don't like to be in photos."
 I guess you might say I've been holding out on you.  I restrain myself every time a Mom says she doesn't want to be in photographs because she needs to lose 5 lbs or she needs to let her hair grow or get it cut because it's a mess.  I'm quietly sad when I talk to a family that has never taken the time to schedule family portraits.  I believe photographs give clarity to our memories and provide children with a sense of roots and belonging.

I quietly celebrated a milestone last month, remembering the day 13 years ago that I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  My children at the time were 14 and 3.  I was stunned and devastated and ironically the first thing I thought of doing was having portraits taken of me with my children and family.  
For my children, I wanted to make sure I was not an invisible part of their childhood just in case I wasn't blessed with the opportunity to be there to share in their birthday celebrations, skinned knees and first dates.  But God has blessed me with 13 Mother's Day celebrations and I have cherish every one.  

What I learned from the experience is that life is fragile and the window we get to celebrate motherhood with these messy, silly and sometimes stubborn little people is small but it is also tender and sweet and filled with hope for a new day.   I hope you'll won't miss this precious time before it slips away.   ~   Deanne
