A few years ago, I was in a Barnes and Noble with my son when I spotted an Outlander display. I pointed this out to my then 4 year old and said “oh look honey, it’s the books mommy keeps reading” and I hear someone very excitedly say “Oh my god, me too!!!!”. This is how I met Mercedes and found the best friend I wasn’t expecting. Aside from sharing a lot of interests with each other, our husbands are both Marines who somehow ended up with orders to Lejeune and New River the same month. (I love when this happens!)
Mercedes and Jon are adorable together and their tiny pup, Ida, is a ball of energy and sweetness. We had their session at Sturgeon City Park in Jacksonville and had a lot of fun making sure we really showed off the connection between them all.
I love when you meet people like that, you know they are suppose to be in your life! These are beautiful. The fall colors are so warm and gorgeous with her purple top, I love that combo!
What a fun way to meet a friend! Their family portrait session is beautiful! Love the light and their furbaby is so cute!
What a great meet-cute story, this family portrait photo shoot is adorable. I love the inclusion of their dog in their family photographs. Her outfit is also the perfect thing to wear for this family photoshoot.
I love their story!! This is a beautiful family session in Jacksonville.
I love your story of how you met! That happened to me but with Harry Potter. And you did such a beautiful job on their sun drenched Jacksonville couple’s session. But I think Ida stole the show.
