Meghan-Stewart-Photography-Jacksonville-Beach-Family-Session_0010.jpgEarly mornings aren’t easy. But when it they begin on the beach watching the sun peek it’s promised rays over the horizon with two people so obviously in love & full of joy the early morning was all worth it.

I first met Debbie when I photographed her daughter’s family a few years back. Debbie hopped in on a few shots then but we didn’t really get to know each other too well. She & Mark married not too long ago & when her daughter heard I was headed back to the beach she knew they needed a little “in love” session to celebrate their marriage. Boy, am I glad we made this happen. They are a breath of a fresh air & love is pure & fun. We laughed, we talked about our love for “our” beach, & how good God is. It was the perfect way to start a day.

Debbie & Mark, I’m beyond thrilled for you two & pray the happiest of days over your marriage & life together. Thank you for spending time with me while I was in Jax & I hope to see you around some time. – Meghan


Meghan-Stewart-Photography-Jacksonville-Beach-Family-Session_0001.jpgLife gets crazy as the kids get older. Right? I mean, you all have jobs & hobbies that cause your schedules to conflict. Let’s face it, dad isn’t alone anymore & now the “kids” don’t want to have their pictures taken too. It’s tricky & it’s tough, I get it. But when you make it happen, when you get up before the sun peeks over the dark blue sea (I mean isn’t it gorgeous!), when you brave the chilly temperatures & end up laughing like you always do together, you realize it’s all worth it. It’s worth it to capture the memories of how your life has changed & to tell of who you are TODAY. That’s what the Fosters did & I am so grateful for their example.

So, dads & grown “kids” take a minute to make your wife & mom’s heart really happy. You know what, I bet you’ll end up enjoying it. Most of the guys I photograph leave telling me how easy & fun it was. . . I can be a pretty big goofball so feel free to laugh at me all you want. I promise I’ll make it fun & your mom will love you extra hard that day & just might even treat you to a warm cup of coffee & a hot breakfast.


Meghan-Stewart-Photography-Atlanta-Georgia-Family-Photographer-Meccas-Through-the-years_0001.jpgWhat a journey!!! What a joy!!! What a privilege!!!

I’ve been going through old sessions, cleaning out, making room for new ones (2005 – 2014 sessions & weddings are 25% off until April 1, 2017). As I sorted through old discs I began to think about my faithful clients & friends who have supported me for so long on this glorious journey. There are so many to include in the joys & stories I’ve had – The Porters, The Cummings, The Budnicks, The Tombs, but there’s no one like the Meccas! Oh, my gosh, I’m about to cry! The Meccas have been with me almost since day one. They have included me in family events, waited with me when I locked my keys in the car, scouting new & different locations, cookie picnics at the park, & just life. I’ve watched little Madison grow up. I’ve told their story & kept their memories for them. It’s been a joy for sure!

It’s so fun to look back at these pictures at how much Madison has grown, styles have changed, & how I’ve grown as a photographer. I’m so glad I simplified my editing & stuck to what was natural & real. I love that I see my work of today in my work from the beginning. I’ve been true to myself & that makes me proud. I’ve captured genuine laughter, quiet moments, & little ones discovering this great big world. My heart is happy & thankful for this journey I’ve been on & if it weren’t for families like the Meccas who believed in me I wouldn’t be where I am today. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you who have stuck with me & watched me grow & trusted me with your memories! You have blessed my life beyond measure.

Almost from the beginning we began a tradition of the Madison & Meghan picture at the end of most every session (it looks like we missed a couple). I wish I had done this with more of my clients but all those memories, even if not on film, are in my heart. Love you little Mads and see you in May!



I think spring is my favorite time of year. I love when the air turns warm & the flowers begin to poke their heads through the barren dirt & it feels like the world is coming to life again. I love the feeling of a fresh start. It’s funny how the year has a lot of fresh starts within it. We have New Years, spring, our birthdays, anniversaries, & the Jews celebrate Rosh Hashanah. One thing i love about the new beginning of spring is cleaning out.

I’m majorly in the cleaning out phase. We combined our belongings when we moved into a rental & of course I realized I have way to much stuff. It’s time to purge. One thing I’m tossing out is all of my old backup discs. I know, it’s scary but I’ve grown so much over the 11 years I’ve been shooting & it’s time to make room for even more growth. So, your images are looking for a new home. I’m selling digital collection for 25% for any session or wedding shot between 2005 and 2014. If you purchased a digital collection make sure you still have it before it’s gone forever. Contact me to find out what all I have of yours & how much you can save. Hurry, because they’re gonna be gone by the end of March.
