They gathered at a loving place on the St johns River called Epping Forest to get ready, and have their first look . Then on to  the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in downtown Jacksonville for their wedding. 

I basically hung out in the sacristy area and side transepts .Th views I shot were thru the lovely tall archway doors. 

 

Then back to Epping Forest for an amazing reception party. Yves and Janelle were such a beautiful and fun couple. As were there entire large extended family .

May they have a long blessed marriage !

Why I do not offer Mini Sessions | St Augustine Photographer http://lisaolschewskephotography.com/blog/2017/10/why-i-do-not-offer-mini-sessions-st-augustine-photographer

 

Friends it is 11 weeks until Christmas! Time to think about booking those fall photo sessions for Christmas Cards and gifts (grandparents LOVE photos ) I offer CUSTOM packages to best suit YOUR family and YOUR budget. I do not book 'mini' sessions because I feel that makes a family MORE stressed trying to make children perform in a short time frame. I spend time with my clients and do not ever want a child or the family to feel rushed . You spend a lot of time getting ready for your photo session and it should be fun and enjoyable! Not rushed and hurried. 
 
Yes I realize about every photographer is offering "mini" sessions. A mini session is about shooting as many clients as possible in a short available time, say ten or twenty minutes at a 'cheaper' price and just a few images. I am not implying that is bad, it is just not what I strive to offer my clients. 
 
Sure I have in the past offered a mini session to try to book as many clients as possible. But in the end not a single one was a mini session, it took closer to an hour. A  Family can  show up late, due to traffic or little ones that were fussy because poor mom has spent the entire afternoon getting ready for their short session. I simply do not feel it is fair to MY clients that hire me. 
 
I have spent time watching other photographers at the 'popular' photo locations ( I am in North Florida ) they set up in what they feel is their 'spot' and do not move and shoot family after family , often times with screaming, unhappy children, spouses fighting etc. That is just not OK with ME. Being the mother of a Sensory Processing Disorder child (or 2) I know how hard it is raising these special children.  I want to interact and gain the child's trust so he/she is happy and YOU get a great photo. Maybe just one or two. But it is done in a loving, compassionate way. Sometimes posed often just a natural capture .
 
Sure there are those children that DO great with the first shot and are just little photo bugs ! That is a photographers dream! I spend time , talking to my clients before the session so I know what they desire. That is is why I offer custom packages.Some just want or can afford ONE photo! That is ok. I have a price for that ONE special image. Or if you wish to have 5, or 10 .  I offer digital images or photo packages.
 
Give me a call, lets meet up and have coffee or tea, MY TREAT. Allow me to help you create a positive, fun, calm family photo session. To cherish for years! 
 
Photography preserves memories. Photography gives you a way to share your story of life for future generations. Allow me to capture these precious times for you story.
 
~Life is precious...it is worth capturing~

St Augustine Lighthouse new hands on exhibit for children | St Augustine Photographer http://lisaolschewskephotography.com/blog/2017/10/st-augustine-lighthouse-new-hands-on-exhibit-for-children-st-augustine-photographer I took some of my kiddos to the St Augustine lighthouse recently and it was actually not busy with tourists and we could actually enjoy and explore the grounds. I forget I have a membership ! They are So helpful and great at educating us on the rich history . It is great for homeschool families like us. 

 A few of my images were recently featured on their Instagram page and website as well as a few other publications have used a particular image of a brand new exhibit ; Legends of the light .

My images were featured in the Come see Orlando article all about the newest exhibit  http://www.comeseeorlando.com/2017/10/florida-unique-research-conservation.html

It is a new area just for children of all ages, but ideal for the little ones that have not reached the 'height requirements ' to climb the lighthouse. It has etch a sketch stations, hands on activities like a puppet show area and it gives moms a nice cool place to nurse their nursling . AND SO MUCH MORE. 

 

There is also a new cafe serving healthy options and local Ancient City Brewery beers . 

 

Check out their website for everything you need to know to plan a visit http://staugustinelighthouse.org

Bernadette Lacey | St Augustine + Jacksonville Newborn Photographer http://lisaolschewskephotography.com/blog/2017/9/bernadette-lacey-st-augustine-jacksonville-newborn-photographer Welcome earthside beautiful Bernadette Lacy! You were born one week ago on Sept 11, 2017 at 10:49 pm weighing in at 7 pounds 11 ounces and 19.5 inches in length .Your beautiful momma worked hard to keep you inside safe during Hurricane Irma. I was  your momma's birth doula and birth photographer but Hurrincane Irma was in the way of me leaving our island due to the bridges being closed.

Your birth  was the first birth I have ever missed in all my  24 years in the birth community. But she was not alone she had her amazing attentive husband and a local back up doula, Farrah Lucas, whom was just wonderful serving as your doula. 

I finally got to meet you when you were 4 days fresh and captured the moment your grand parents and Aunt and Uncle met you! I love documenting families together loving on the newest little blessing!

St Augustine Beach after Hurricane Irma | St Augustine Photographer http://lisaolschewskephotography.com/blog/2017/9/st-augustine-beach-after-hurricane-irma-st-augustine-photographer I went out to the beach tonight for a few minutes after day two of post hurricane Irma cleanup. Took a few photos at the beach and pier. The dredged sand is gone and the rocks are exposed again. I will add more in the coming week to this album. 

 

Edit: Added more images from Downtown St Augustine tonight. The Mission , Tolomato Cemetery and the Castilo De San Marcos. 

Sadly the FAMOUS Cedar tree I fondly call the "Joshua tree" did not stand to Irma's power. So many photo sessions were done there.

Solar Eclipse 2017 | St Augustine-Jacksonville Photographer http://lisaolschewskephotography.com/blog/2017/8/solar-eclipse-2017-st-augustine-jacksonville-photographer The day all the media has raved about. The Great Solar Eclipse 2017. I am in St Augustine Florida. It was pretty cloudy here all day . SO I loaded up my children and drove a whopping 10 miles to Fort Matanzas . 

The clouds parted and opened up like heaven JUST in time. We had around 90% here but IDK. They ran out of the free glasses but some kind folks literally let us try theirs it was cool. Like I recalled as a child in 1979. 

I used my Nikon D750 with my 105mm lens mostly shot at ISO 80 I did not take many as I also used my old canon ae-1 with bw film . 

NO I did not use a filter. I broke all the rules lol. The cool pat was really the present shadows on the ground throughout the trees. Which you will see. We did not have total darkness. IT was HOT like more than usual .

Nicholas' Newborn Session | St Augustine-Jacksonville Newborn Photographer http://lisaolschewskephotography.com/blog/2017/8/nicholas-newborn-session-st-augustine-jacksonville-newborn-photographer I am happy to share this newborn session I did last week. I have been photographing this precious family since their second born was a newborn . I first photographed his baptism and have done several family sessions . I did a Christmas session last December and little did mom know she was already growing baby Nicholas. Though they did not know his gender until his home water birth. 

I also did her maternity session and I had a feeling she was carrying a boy! 

For their newborn session I did a combination of some posed and some lifestyle . But it was mostly a lifestyle session since Nicholas whom was just 8 days old needed to nurse a lot and was not a sleeping baby . 

I will also be photographing his baptism in a few weeks.

 

 

This was around Christmas 2016 their family session and though she did not know it then , there was a baby growing inside her. 

 

We tried a few posed but he just did not enjoy being out of mom's arms , so being a attachment parenting family , most photos were in arms. 

 

At mom's request I tried to mimic a few image styles she had previously when her others were newborns. Mom was very pleased with the result.  

 

 

 

This couple is so loving. I just adore them

Baby R | St Augustine Birth Photographer-Jacksonville Birth Photographer http://lisaolschewskephotography.com/blog/2017/8/baby-r-st-augustine-birth-photographer-jacksonville-birth-photographer Baby Ryan was this sweet family third boy. This was such a wonderful fast birth. What us birth workers call fast and furious. Mom had been txt with me that she had some back pain and went to bed early since she had already been told she was 3cm the previous week . We both knew if labor kicked in it would be an all nighter. 

Mom txt around 12:30 am her bag of water had released in bed. But she got up and cleaned up and laid back down , or tried too. Around 1:53 am she txt she felt sick and the pain was more intense her lower belly (insert a English accent ) a few minutes later she txt me to come over. I called her to listen to her breathing and decided that she should meet me at Flagler since this was her 3rd and there was no real pattern. 

She met me at the hospital around 2:50 am and we walked to LDR together . Triage was slow! She was checked and she was 9 CM! Mom hit transition and was asking for a epidural . She wanted the low intervention room but since she 'verbally asked for a epidural" they wheeled her to a 'regular " room. Things went super fast as she was in the room we helped her onto the bed and I heard pushing sounds. Baby Ryan was born quickly after a few pushes at 3:15 am! He weighed 8 pounds and 9 oz.

Mom achieved the natural birth she wanted! After two previous medicated births. 

 

I was also her birth doula and photographer but dad was serving as main support as he desired too and did a wonderful job! 

 

 

Just after mom was helped into the bed she grabbed the bar as she was pushing.

A few pushes and Baby Ryan was pulled up to her chest with dad's help

The first realization that SHE DID IT NATURALLY  Dad  holding his newest son. LOOK AT THOSE LIPS

 

 

First Latch Lisa Olschewske , CD DONA Birth Doula , Owner of Graceful Beginnings Doula Services Checkup time I returned the next day for a FRESH 12 hour session as the brothers, friends and family met baby Ryan

Baby L | St Augustine- Jacksonville Birth Photographer http://lisaolschewskephotography.com/blog/2017/8/baby-l-st-augustine--jacksonville-birth-photographer Sometimes birth does not go as we desire. This mother never once said "I can't do this". She never complained. She went 42 weeks and the entire week prior she experienced off and on surges . Her care providers wanted her to induce but she made her educated choice to decline. 

Technology can suck honestly. Wireless monitors can fail. And when they fail Drs panic. 

Baby Logan was born via a belly birth  and he weighed 7 pounds and 8 oz. Covered in vernix. 

 

I served as mom's birth doula and birth photographer  and was so very proud of her!

Funeral Mass for Victor Agruso Jr. Ph.D. http://lisaolschewskephotography.com/blog/2017/7/funeral-mass-for-victor-agruso-jr-ph-d Last week I attended a funeral for a very special man that was a very active member of the Cathedral Basilica of St Augustine, Victor Agruso Jr. Ph.D. His wife, Ramona, were married  60 years!

Junior Lifeguard Regional Competition | St Augustine Photographer http://lisaolschewskephotography.com/blog/2017/7/junior-lifeguard-regional-competition-st-augustine-photographer On Saturday, July 15th I got up at 2:40 am to drive my kids to Delray Beach . It was a almost 4 hour drive south. I am used to getting up in the middle of the night for birth so luckily I was ok with it. I prepared the night prior , had everything packed and in the SUV. SO when I got up I made coffee and warmed the GF egg and English muffins. 

The kids slept while I drove. 

It was a hot day in the sun. IT was a first time for Ethan (14) and Felicity (11)  competing in the Junior Lifeguard Competition. 

Felicity and Ethan were the only two representing our county, St Johns. They did their best against some brutal competition. Clearly south Florida is all about swim team. And VERY competitive. Felicity took SECOND place in the Beach flag race. She is the cute blonde in the Red swimsuit. With the face of determination .

We will go on to the Nationals in a few weeks that will be closer to home , in Daytona.

J & G Wedding | St Augustine Wedding Photographer http://lisaolschewskephotography.com/blog/2017/5/j-g-wedding-st-augustine-wedding-photographer A few months ago I photographed a wedding for a a beautiful couple I had never before met in person.I was interviewed and hired by their cousin whom got my name from a past client of mine (love word of mouth ) . They were flying in from another country to be married here in St Augustine. Which is a very popular Destination Wedding town . 

St Augustine is our Nations Oldest City. 

I met Justin and Guntare the day of their wedding and it was as if we had known one another for a long time. I escorted them thru the beautiful ancient streets and photographed them natural. 

Their little wedding ceremony was that Lightner Museum garden. We did a few posed photos in the little chapel at sunset.
