Williams Beach Family Session- Pensacola Beach Lifestyle Family Photographer

I have known Micah for several years now, and I was so excited when she contacted me to photograph her family on the beach.  Their wish was to be photographed on the beach before their big move to Italy.  For several years now they have considered this their home but in a few short months their family will start on a new adventure out of the country.  

The beach had been so calm leading up to our session but the few days before it became cold and a bit windy.  Do you think it stopped these active kids from having a little beach fun,  NOT at all!! The water temperature was actually warmer than the air.  Oh how I love Pensacola Beach in the Winter!!

Corey and Kim are just the two sweetest people I know always full of energy and smiles and I was so excited to photograph them with their sweet baby Matthew who I just adore.  I think you can see that this family is very close and there is much love that surrounds them and at the end of our session they let me in on a little surprise that they are expecting baby #2!!

When this mother of two boys contacted me, she wanted to get photos taken for her Christmas Cards.  Just the week before their session we had a hurricane come thru and damage the National Seashore which is where we had planned to have our session. We managed to find this perfect little spot surrounded in a little quiet area of Pensacola Beach and you would never know by the beauty that  surrounded us that we had such bad weather just a week ago. 

  When I asked mom what was the thing she would like to freeze most about her family, she wrote "the sweet hugs and cuddles from my boys"  I think she got her cuddles and with boys there always a bit of  running involved as well!

This mom contacted me to say she wanted a session for her newborn twins but it almost did not happen.  This babies were born early and had to stay in the hospital for a bit, then life of course gets in the way and then what do you know a hurricane comes to town.  But that did not stop us, I came to visit this sweet family on the Saturday before Hurricane Nate came and we just had a bit of fun reading and playing with the twins.

Vy grew up here in Gulf Breeze but now lives outside Dallas, she shared with me that she had her family come and visit her baby 3 years ago and they never left, I love that!!  It is so nice to have your family close because your children grow up so fast.  Vy said they get to visit Florida several times a year but they had never had photos taken at the beach, they wanted to enjoy the our white beaches and our beautiful water.  I hope I was able to give them some wonderful memories for years to come!!

A Day in the Life- Gulf Breeze Lifestyle Photographer

I admire each of our military families and their service to our country.  Every time I think about moving I get knots in my stomach then I meet a family like Tressa and her kids who have moved every couple of years and they are so proud and gracious about what they do and the people they get to meet it makes me appreciate their service so much more!!  

When Tressa and I spoke about doing a Lifestyle session in her home she told me she had a very active baby boy who loved to be bounced and talked too, and she did not lie, we were able to capture Bentley having a bit of fun.  Aubrie on the other hand could have kept me there all day showing me everything in her room and modeling everything in her closet!  We had so much fun exploring all the light around their house.  I sure hope Daddy enjoys the photos and comes home soon!!

When this Pensacola family contacted me they had just welcomed a new baby and had family  down from Massachusetts to visit the new baby.  When I asked them to tell me a little about what they wanted, Sherry wrote "We really want to capture the beauty of the beaches with happy and relaxed poses."   This whole session was nothing but laughs and fun!!

When this sweet family found out that their family was expanding they were excited!!   But then they found out that their house of girls was now going to have a boy in it!  All the excitement began, decorating, deciding on a name, etc, etc.  Now the wait is over and Baby Charlie has arrived!  He is just so perfect!!

Tea Party Mini Sessions-Gulf Breeze Photographer

As I am driving to meet this two for their Tea Party session it is raining, but here on the Gulf Coast I have learned not to panic, it may be raining but it 20 minutes you may see the sun again.  We did not see the sun, but it did stop raining long enough for these two to enjoy a spot of tea at their Tea Party!!

It may have been raining outside but that did not stop this family from having a bit of Saturday morning fun.  We played trains, dressed dolls, made a puzzle and I learned a new game!  

Patches of Light-Pensacola Beach Photographer

My daughter Elizabeth has learned over the years to appreciate good light!  She came running in the house last night to tell me, "Mom, you have to come see the sun outside"

 We knew we had just a few minutes before the sun dipped beyond the tress in our neighborhood, I loved watching her take in every last ounce of sun and what was left of the day.  After the sun went beyond the trees, I put my camera down and we went for a bike ride trying to see if we could chase a little bit more of the day before it ended.
