Spring | Update | Jacksonville, FL Lifestyle Photographer

space

To be honest, we don’t really have a true spring in Florida…we tend to go from cold to hot, with no in betweens.

As an on location photographer I am not looking forward to the summer heat.

At all.

Sweating does not look good on me at all.

Gross.

space

Anyhow…just wanted to update everyone on what’s been going on in my life…my work.

A couple months ago we were forced to leave our beloved home that we had been leasing.

When I say I was sad to do so, well that would be an under statement.

It was just perfect for us in all ways.

We knew that we wanted to stay in San Marco because Asher attends school close by & also I just love that area.

It tends to have a small town feel & I dig that.

Cookie cutter neighborhoods are not my thing.

So the past couple of months I have been looking for something to pop up…the market in that area

has been really dry.

Well…we found something!

[insert the 'happy' song here]

space

I am happy to say that we are starting the move tomorrow through the weekend.

We are blocks from cafes, parks & shops…so we couldn’t be happier for that.

God opened this door for us & we are thankful for that.

Business wise…I have decided to start taking on more weddings.

I will still be meeting with prospective clients to make sure we are a right ‘fit’ for each other.

But I am excited about the future & where that may lead me.

I adore my job & the relationships I get to build.

Definitely a blessing.

space

Personal wise I have learned that I need God’s love more than ever.

Even though we are excited to move, the past couple of days have been filled with

up’s & downs.

I guess in the world we live in today…

I should expect that.

Logically I know this.

But my heart doesn’t want to.

I am a lover & supporter till the end.

space

Ready to get settled in & start focusing on my business.

We all know how fun packing, moving & unpacking can be.

[yeah right]

space

Below are some images I took one afternoon in the back yard of my Mom’s home.

I am a sucker for wild flowers, even if they are considered weeds.

I do still have some openings for 2014 weddings & elopements!

And still taking portraiture shoots as well.

Wishing everyone a beautiful spring.

Filled with lots of love & simple moments.

[evening strolls, bike rides...don't forget to do those]

Styled Shoot Out | Christina Block Photography | Jacksonville, FL

space

 If you know me, you know that I love to style & work with details.

Over the course of a year I have received many inquires about hosting a styled shoot.

Where other photographers would come & shoot the set up…being able to add some lovely images to

their portfolio, meeting other photographers, gaining some inspiration and

making new friends.

It takes countless months to set up every little detail for a styled shoot…making sure my vision is being

portrayed how I see it in my mind.

This was a test run.

A first.

I have gotten a lot of great feedback so that made me happy.

I am hoping to host another styled shoot out sometime in the fall of 2014.

I especially want to thank all of the loveliest vendors that worked with me & put up with my

8 million emails ensuring everything would be perfect for these girls.

At the end of everything, I was beyond pleased with the end result.

Here is a peek of what went down at my first styled shoot out.

Enjoy.

And capturing a newly born baby.
