Capturing fellow St. Petersburg Firefighter families is my FAVORITE!

Not only are we family because we are bonded by the incredible profession of firefighting, but we are friends. This incredible family is 100% as happy as they seem, and that’s a rare thing in this day and age of filtered living through imagery. I mean, you really need to study the images of husband and wife below. That’s not staging! That is chemistry! Pure and simple. A real life spark.

And it can start a fire 😉

Good thing he’s trained! Those babies are best friends, also. You know how many images i get of siblings kissing? Haha…not many.

This family is the real deal. Living life as a family in one of the most dangerous and underpaid professions is as hard as it sounds, but the White family make it look easy. They put in the hard work for it though, and it pays off.

This family is on fire. It is my honor to be their photographer, and their friend!

    It’s not often I get to photography a true Instagram super star, but I sure did get the chance to this winter! Meet Jackie from the popular Lifestyle and Mommy Blog, based out of right here in Tampa bay, Florida

    And what a gorgeous family. It’s no wonder she has such a large following. Her posts and writing is so sincere about family.

    And they are the real deal! In love with each other and dripping with happiness. When family can interact with each other with such natural joy, they need no direction, and that was this family. I was able to just sit back and click away as the documentary photographer.

    It is so obvious that Jackie is doing exactly what she was created to do. And I was honored to capture this beautiful family full of genuine heart and soul.

      All people are called to do something special.

      Some people are called to serve their community. Some people are called to be diligent workers, affecting their work place with positivity. Some people are called to teach, to lead, even to sing or write. Some people are called to hold a camera 😉

      And then some people…some VERY special people, are called to extend love in the most selfless and life changing way possible; through adoption.

      It’s a very special calling, indeed. And the people who take on this special calling, are completely set apart.

      Whenever I’m called upon to capture a family like this, I am so humbled. This beautiful family, after having biological son of their own (who is a fantastic big brother!), felt led to complete their family by extending love to children born overseas. They got on a plane, not once but twice, to bring home a child to love and raise.

      The smiles on the faces of these children are as big as their hearts, and they are evidence that when you listen intently to the calling upon your life, and you are obedient to that calling, the fruit is the joy you make in this world.

      It is my pleasure to share with you, the images of the Ashmead Family, right here in sunny St. Petersburg, Florida…where this humbled photographer was able to capture love in it’s most selfless form 🙂

      Enjoy this very special family session!
