My final Family Beach Portrait for the Summer of 2017 was at Grayton Beach State Park. I was so happy to meet the Cooper family from Coleyville Texas for the first time. They were fun, creative and energetic. These are the best shots from our time spent together during that Sweet August Evening.
I first met the Thompson Family in May of 2016 on Navarre Beach. I was thrilled that Mrs.Thompson called me again for Family Portraits at Perdido Key this year. She brought along her Brother and his family for this extended family portrait. These are some of my most favorite shots!
2017 has been a whirlwind of adventure…LITERALLY.
This year I have expanded my professional life by Becoming a REALTOR® with Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate. I also checked a huge item off of my personal bucket list by traveling to the UK and Europe this past October. My Family and I have had a lot of fun and exciting times going on since about August. So in my quest to update this Blog with all of my summer portrait sessions, I have traveled abroad with over 1600 fabulous photos to edit on my return, the holidays came and went, Then in the blink of an eye, my oldest child had his 18th birthday! These were all incredible milestones but honestly that last one was so bitter sweet as a mother. I am very happy yet, it became so apparent to me how much time I have with my kid before he graduates high school and flies the coop…A year and a half to be exact.
I have updated this Journal only a few times while all of these blessings have happened in my life. So now I am taking this day to reflect on 2017 with three more sessions to write about and then I will start 2018 off fresh and new on the BLOG with my photo journal of the amazing travel experiances.
The Emerson Family came to visit Navarre Beach in July from Hot Springs Arkansas. I was so happy to help this family with their portraits while they were on Vacation. The weather was perfect and we all had a fun. Here are some of my favorites from the time we shared.
The Lynn Family returned to the SanDestin Area this summer for a very special family vacation! I had the incredible honor of meeting a sweet and cuddly new member of the family. Baby Luke! Would you take a look at THOSE EYES! I mean Good Gracious….What a sweetheart! He is so very lucky to have the most loving big sister and three big brothers to help take care of him. I have been blessed to watch this adorable family grow over the years. Thank you so much Lynn Family for trusting me to help you with your sweet family memories when you vacation on the Gulf Coast of Florida!
The Snyder Family spent their vacation in the Pensacola Beach area from Bartlett Tennessee this past July. I was delighted to help them capture their sweet Family Beach portraits. I just adored these two sisters who were so very happy to be on the beach with one another. They were given the choice between Disney World and the Beach for vacation and they choose the BEACH! Im not sure many children would actually say the beach over Disney World. Smart young ladies…I would have to agree it is the most perfect vacation spot indeed! Here are some of my favorite memories from our time together.
