Family Session at Christ Church Frederica in St Simons

January 13, 2020

Last summer when we first moved here, Melissa sent me a message on Facebook after coming across my profile in the local military wife group for King’s Bay. Randy isn’t active duty anymore, but I still love to be part of the military community. Being involved is a great resource for making friends for me!

Anyway, Melissa invited me out to dinner, and we ended up talking for something like 6 hours! We closed the restaurant down and then stood in the parking lot for another hour. It was an instant friendship; she’s someone that I feel like my soul has known before in a past life, or something like that. I just love her and her whole family.

When her mom, Francine, asked me to take their extended family session at Christ Church Frederica up on St Simon Island, of course I had to do it! We got Melissa’s whole family together including her sister Allison and her niece. Melissa coordinated their outfits and had so much fun together exploring the grounds! Francine absolutely loved a previous session I had done there and despite living here in Camden County for several years had never actually seen it in person. It’s one of the coolest places and a beautiful spot for family photos, so we made the trek up there and it was amazing.

I am so thankful to Melissa for introducing me to her family and being the biggest welcome to life here in southeast Georgia!
