Last December we traveled to Florida to photograph my wonderful friend, Aubrey, for her maternity session.  Though it has been a while since the shoot, we wanted to post some photos from the shoot.  We headed to St. Augustine, Florida, to do the shoot.  As I mentioned already, it was December, and though Florida is not known for its cold weather at any time of the year, it was shockingly cold this particular week.  Night time lows hovered close to the teens and the days weren't much warmer.  On top of that, it had rained quite a bit, so it was damp, thus making the temps feel even worse.  Despite that, Aubrey and her husband Phillip endured brutal conditions in very little clothing for the sake of "good" photography :-)!  They now have a beautiful daughter named Scarlett.  I love you both and can't wait to meet the newest member of the Jarvis / Reel family!!

Just before Christmas, I visited one of my best friends in Florida for a little down time and to photograph her maternity session ... this is her first pregnancy!  I wanted to post a sneak peak photo for her, as she is due to deliver her beautiful baby girl tomorrow, January 11th.

 

Aubrey, I love you and will be thinking about you all day and praying you have a smooth delivery.  You are just as beautiful pregnant as you always have been and no one could replace you in front of my lens ... or in any other way :-)!  Can't wait to meet Scarlet!!

The day before we left Florida, I took Kevin to one of my favorite places ... the St. Augustine Alligator Farm.  Not only does it have one of the most impressive displays of alligator and crocodile species in the world, it also has one of the best natural bird rookeries (a communal nesting site) in all of Florida.  Afterwards, we headed back down the coast stopping one last time along the way to enjoy the sounds of the ocean ... I really do miss Florida!!

 

We decided to play tourists and pose with a young gator ... really, I just wanted to hold one - it was so cool :-).

This is their star attraction, Maximo the Salty (croc) ... well his snout anyways.

This is a very rare albino alligator (one of two they have there.)  They were only discovered in Louisiana in 1991.

I love to play tourist when I go on trips. Even if it's only for 1/2 a day. I'm totally jealous of the alligator farm. Hope you're having fun in FL.

This past week we were back in Florida for Brittany and Stephen's wedding.  My good friend Aubrey is one of the "Fab 4" Jarvis sisters and my goal is to photograph all of them on their wedding days.  Well, Ashley was first, then Aubrey and now Brittany (all since 2006) ... the only one left is Chelsea.

 

We had four days of shooting scheduled for this wedding, starting with Bee's bridal shoot.  We headed from Orlando up to historic St. Augustine, hitting the beaches as we went.  Accompanying us was Bee's close friend from Maryland, Nesha.  Nesha had never seen the ocean before so it was a lot of fun watching her explore it and dip her toes into the Atlantic for the first time.  She was also a great "Bird Rangler" assistant ... thanks Nesha :-).

 

The weather was rather foul but we didn't let that stop us from getting some absolutely stunning shots ... hard to go wrong though when you are working with one of the Jarvis sisters (they are all sickningly beautiful, thin and tall!)  In actuality, I enjoy working in stormy weather.  It adds an element to the images and a quality of light that just can't be achieved otherwise.  It was a great day full of fun and exploration!

 

We made an unscheduled stop to catch this storm sweeping in.  Turned out to be one of my favorites from the entire day!!
