Season of Giving | Gainesville, FL Photographer

I have been touched, inspired & heartbroken by friends and strangers that are struggling to remain hopeful during their children's fight with leukemia. I don't have much to give, but anything can help.
Two stories in particular inspired me to want to make this my charity donation this year. A friend and fellow photographer has a son with leukemia, and I was introduced to another young man's story via a photography group on facebook. Please visit their blogs if you can:

Holiday Family Photographs | Gainesville, FL

It's the most wonderful time of the year! <3

The Christmas decorations are up around town and everyone is all-a-buzz about the HOLIDAYS! Yay! I know, I know... it isn't even Thanksgiving yet. I'm not one of those who thinks that Christmas should wait its turn. I'd put my Christmas tree up in August if my kiddos wouldn't think I was a crazy lady!

December will be here before we know it and that means it's time to schedule your family holiday portraits!  This year's mini sessions include a 10% discount to any additional print order.  That means you can choose custom holiday cards, gorgeous canvas prints or anything else and SAVE while you shop! The mini sessions will be held throughout the month of November and the first week of December, but space is limited so don't hesitate... reserve your session, now!  You can choose lakeside, garden or urban settings for your location.

A Present for You:  If you refer a friend to Julie Renae Photography and they schedule a session, you will get HALF OFF your own session! Wowza! This is a limited time offer and will only be valid until December 15, 2011 so get on your facebook, your twitter and your blog and start sharing the wealth. :)

Family Photography | Gainesville, FL

A couple of weeks ago I spent an afternoon in the garden with this beautiful family. The Autumn colors and setting sun worked magic on these photos!  As I'm sure you'll agree.. it was hard NOT to take a perfect picture of these beauties. I hope you enjoy, and if you're in the North Central Florida area, how about booking a session for your family?  If interested, please contact me. Contact information is listed on the contact tab above.  Happy November!

Engagement Photography | Gainesville, FL

I had SO MUCH FUN doing this engagement session with C & J! They were kind enough to choose me to do their engagement photos, knowing full well that this was my very first engagement session.  I was so excited about the diner idea, I handmade the striped straws myself. :)  I am thrilled with the results and inspired to do more, more, more! The gorgeous Lake Alice was a costar in this engagement picnic<3

Family Photography | Daddy & Daughter Day

I had the pleasure of meeting this Daddy & Daughter duo at a local park for a beautiful and fun photo shoot. One thing is for certain... this girl has Daddy wrapped around her little finger. It's easy to see how, by the end of the shoot she had me, too! :)
