family at home | st. johns photographer

This family is so special to me. Julie and I first met when we were teaching together, years ago before we had children. Then, just after her first was born, her family moved away, so seeing each other weekly turned into visits only once or twice a year. Last year, I was so excited when they announced that the Click Away conference would be held in San Antonio. I booked my ticket and called Julie to tell her I was coming to visit. "I don't think we'll be here by then," she said. Her husband was interviewing for jobs all over, and I was disappointed. But guess what! They did move, right back to the same neighborhood they left four years ago. So this session had several purposes: to celebrate sweet E's third birthday, to get some great images for Christmas cards, and to document them as a family, at home in Jacksonville. Hopefully, this time they'll stay!
