The weekend before Christmas, Matt surprised his unsuspecting wife with an early Christmas present. They showed up at our Lake City gallery early Saturday morning and we all surprised her with our Baby’s First Year plan. Matt had been planning this for some time and had purchased the plan weeks in advance. He had done much research, looking at photographers from all over the area from Jacksonville to Gainesville. He kept coming back to us because of, as he put it, the way we authentically document relationships. Lots of very talented photographers out there create amazingly beautiful images, but not many capture the relationships and what that love feels like.
Our goal with documenting our families is to ultimately answer the question “What did life feel like growing up?” For any child, the first year is so very important and the amount they grow and change in that 12-month period is nothing short of amazing. Matt was beyond excited about all of this and he had many conversations with Mike.
When we met with them that morning, we went over everything that the first year involves. We had actually set aside time that afternoon for a maternity session for Stasia, but knew it was last-minute and may not work out. Well, Stasia surprised us all and went for it. We had already established a level of trust that allowed her to feel comfortable. We are so thrilled because these maternity images will forever be treasured! She is glowing and absolutely gorgeous. She gave birth to a beautiful baby girl just about a week and a half later. Good timing!
We are so excited to be a part of this amazing year in their lives. What an adorable little family Stay tuned for the newborn session to be posted very soon!
Thanks, Matt & Stasia, for inviting us to capture this amazing time for you and your family. We truly are honored by your trust. See you soon!
