Let's talk camping adventures as a family, motherhood, adoption, current inspiration and family portraits in 30A. 


Welcome to the blog! This is the place that I love to share recent camping trips with my family, thoughts on preserving our stories through portrait preservation and of course family photoshoots on our renowned 30A beaches. 



A little girl runs and plays under a huge oak tree barefoot in her backyard during summertime.

I cannot believe Summer is almost over. Some of y’all are already gearing up for school starting back next month. I know we are! I have to admit – it has been H.A.R.D. having two toddler girls home with me at all times (you can ask Cory about my endless complaining some days) this Summer […]

“And suddenly I know how to handle this cultural tide against which I cannot stand. I do not have to stand against it. I have to make sure we are rooted in real things. I can’t fight Facebook but I can plant a tomato. Every single time I do something that anchors our family to […]

One of the greatest joys of photographing families has come in the form of watching them evolve through the years. Seriously. It has become one of the greatest gifts of my life. The Anderson family is one of those families! I first photographed these guys in 2018 when they were a family of three with […]

Let me tell you a story. Girl meets girl on instagram. Girls meet up in Pensacola, Florida for lunch and hit it off. Girl becomes my wedding florist and creates our stunning wedding invitations. (So pretty that I have it framed.) Girls do a few weddings together and become legit friends. Then girl (me!) photographs […]

Family portrait aesthetics change each year. So what does it take to make a portrait that will truly stand the (aesthetic) of time? Truth. Truthfulness to who you are down to the outfits you choose and the location you create them in. It doesn’t matter if that is incredibly casual on a hammock or dressed […]

When Laura and I first spoke, she said that she followed me on Instagram back in the day and knew that one day when she was in 30A she would have me photograph her family. Years have passed and this year was the year!! I was so humbled when she told me that she waited […]

I cannot believe Summer is basically here. Some of y’all are already feeling it with the kids home. (Ha!) I have to admit – it is HARD having the girls home with me at all times (you can ask Cory about my endless complaining some days) but when I think back at all of the […]

If a portrait is worth taking … then it means it is worth printing. We spend so much time and mental energy contemplating outfits, locations – you name it – but was it worth it if we receive a large gallery, become overwhelmed with the number of choices, post them online and never print them. […]

Portrait by Olivia Jones Photography This Fall will be three years I have been off of social media excluding the good ol’ dinosaur Facebook business page. I was talking to a friend last week at the park (you know – actually engaged with another person/not device at a common area) and telling her the things […]

Photos are awesome. Printing your photos is vital. So, once you receive your family gallery – what’s next? The next step is printing your portraits. (We all know regardless of what people say – what is posted on social media – aka your family pics – doesn’t last.) But how do you know what type […]
