Hogan Family at Watersound Beach

I’ve known Mandy and her family since our kids were in preschool. She moved from Alabama to California years ago, but we’ve kept up through social media. I was so excited she asked me to photograph her family at Watersound Beach so I could hug her neck, catch up, and see her kids who are so grown up and adorable! I also enjoyed meeting her extended family since they were all vacationing together.

I arrived at the beach the afternoon of their session and it began pouring rain right as we were about to start shooting. Since they were leaving the next day, we decided to shoot very early in the next morning before they departed. I love what we were able to capture! Such a pretty place. Such a pretty and sweet family!HDP-Hogan-104_WEB.jpg

Carr Family at Alys Beach

Bronwyne and I worked together years ago as Art Directors in the magazine publishing business, so it’s always a treat to get to catch up with her and photograph her beautiful family. Bronwyne’s parents are getting ready to build a home at Alys Beach, so they wanted to capture them with their children and grandchildren where they are about to make so many more memories. It’s such a beautiful and peaceful place, bathed in all white with hints of colors that mimic life by the sea. Definitely one of my very favorite Beaches of South Walton beach towns along 30A.

The Byers Family in Rosemary Beach, FL

I’ve had the privilege of photographing this fun and sweet family twice! The first time I met the Byers was 3 years ago when I second shot Sarah and John’s wedding and reception at their family ranch with my friend Emily Kicklighter. I left that wedding with an imprint of them on my heart. Their joy was infectious. All day, I observed how much these siblings love each other and how close knit their family is, which is a testimony to Mark and Dana’s parenting. Their relationship with the Lord was obvious in the precious prayer Mark prayed right before they left for the church. So, when Mark contacted me to photograph their family as a surprise for Dana’s birthday, I happily agreed. And, the bonus of getting to photograph the Byers again, was that I got to do it in one of my favorite places…Rosemary Beach, Florida. I love the people I meet and the places I get to go because of my camera.
