Newell Brands Day of Caring at Seamark Ranch | Green Cove Springs Photographer

If you know me, you know that I really love Seamark Ranch. I love their ministry and mission to give children a home and a family when they really need it while showing them what love really means and how to live that out in their daily lives. I also really love the ranch - the farm - the animals - the place, so anytime I have the change to get out there I do!

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph a volunteer service event for Seamark Ranch where over 140 members of the Newell Brands company (think Rubbermaid, Oster, Yankee Candle, Rawlings, Graco, Sharpie, etc...) came out to help complete some projects. They planted trees, spread mulch, cleaned up landscaping and planted flowers, painted inside the homes, painted some outside facilities, built picnic tables, installed shelving in the school, cleaned up and installed shelving in the pantry building and cleared the goat pasture of prickly cactus! It was wonderful to watch the teamwork and dedication to getting their work done. When their work was finished, they played kick ball with some of the kids while enjoying some food and music.

I know Seamark is so very grateful for the Newell Brands and their participation and volunteer service to the children and families. I know the children are thankful because they named a new calf born the day before the event, Newell, in their honor. It was a great afternoon and I can't wait to see the trees leaf out and grow and the flowers bloom and the picnic tables are already in use!

If you'd like more information about Seamark Ranch and how you can help their mission and ministry, visit here and learn more about becoming a Seamark Ambassador here. On April 14, 2018, they will host their 5th Annual Seamark Mudrun with sponsorship opportunities and plain ole' fun in the mud and there is still time to register here!

Thank you all and enjoy!

Providence Island in Queen's Harbor | Real Estate Photography

My husband is a general contractor. He builds things. His company is New Leaf Construction, Inc. and they built this house. I think it's beautiful and the setting is really peaceful and surrounded by water and marshland - in the middle of Queen's Harbor Country Club!

I was able to photograph this home a while ago. Shortly afterwards, it went under contract. Unfortunately, the way things sometimes go, the potential buyers were unable to secure their financing and this beautiful home is on the market once again.

Just minutes from the beach and boating, steps from golf and country club living, and situated in one of Jacksonville's most prestigious neighborhoods, this house in Providence Island is a homeowner's dream! It is listed as having 6 bedrooms, but that does not really do it justice. This home has 1 master suite downstairs, 1 master suite upstairs, 3 more bedrooms upstairs - but I would use at least one as an office, another full bath upstairs, a gorgeous open kitchen/dining/living room with another sitting room off the front door that could be a library or downstairs office all with its own half bath. This house has windows galore to let in the wonderful light we all crave. It's prewired for sound and has a whole house vacuum in place. The best room, in my opinion, is the "casita" above the garage. This room can be a mother-in-law suite, a garage apartment for a college student, an art studio or homeowners getaway - it has the best view of the marshland from the double doors leading to a small balcony. Set up your telescope and watch the wildlife or gaze at the stars.

Since I took these photos, the casita has had a little makeover...it now has a small kitchen area complete with custom cabinetry, sink and refrigerator! It is its own space! I'm sure I'll get photos of that shortly...

If these photos catch your interest or you just want to know more, please contact Susan Dunham (realtor with Keller Williams) at 904-742-3442 or susandunham@comcast.net for more information.

Waking up crying | Jacksonville children's photographer

About 6 months ago, I photographed my grandson as he had just woken from an afternoon nap. He was cooing and just entertaining himself in his crib.  I loved the look of joy in his face when I walked into the room - and he smiled when he saw my camera! (early training)

Things have changed...now he wakes up crying. We can't decide if he just doesn't like waking up alone or doesn't like the confinement of his crib or both. He either sits and cries or stands up crying and waiting for someone to come get him. I guess it's just a phase at this age, but he sounds so pitiful. 

It doesn't take long for the smile to arrive, once he sees someone has come to join him. His first thought is to point to his books. It's as if he is saying, "Please read me a book!" I'm sure soon enough he will be demanding "Book! Book!" That's just fine...we'll read you a book, sweet boy.

And he still smiles for my camera. Love him so.

Mr. ONE-derful | Jacksonville Family and Children's Photographer

Mr. ONE-derful knows how to get what he wants. All he has to do is batt those baby blues and hint at a smile...what a cutie! Absolutely loved photographing he and his momma to celebrate his first birthday.

Hailee | High School Senior Photographer

When you watch someone grow to become a beautiful young woman, both inside and out, there is a special feeling when you are asked to take her senior photos! Of course, I had to get over the shock that she was actually a senior in high school first...good grief, time flies!

Hailee thought it would be great to include her family in a couple of the photos and I couldn't agree more. Her mom and younger brother tagged along for the entire afternoon so I put them to work. Nate held the reflector and we had a few mini lessons on "seeing light" while mom helped by occasionally making faces so her daughter would laugh.

I enjoyed the afternoon very much...except for the moment when I tripped over my own two feet, again! I think I've finally cleaned all the sand off my camera...
