I’ve known Dana since high school and we went to Alabama together, so it’s always fun when I get to see her and catch up. and This was our second beach session together. Last year we photographed her family in Rosemary Beach and this year we shot at her Mom & Dad’s beautiful home and neighborhood in Grayton Beach. This was one of my favorite shoots of the summer. I love it when there are three generations in photos!
I first met Kylee and Brooklyn when I did an impromptu 4th of July themed kids shoot 2 summers ago. You can see that Rosemary Beach Stars and Stripes shoot here. Later that year, their grandmother asked to book a shoot when I came back the next summer. I had the best time roaming one of my very favorite 30A beach town’s with these girls, who get to live at the beach most of the summer. Lucky girls!
This session was all about family, and celebrating the matriarch of the family who is almost 100 years old. Everyone convened at the Higgin’s Watersound Beach house, and they invited me to capture their gathering. I enjoyed getting to meet this sweet family and spend an afternoon at the beach with them.
Loved getting to meet this sweet family while I was down on 30A for shoots in July. I happened to be sitting at the pool one day and a sweet woman named Judith and I struck up a conversation. While we were chatting, I answered a call from a bride to discuss some of her wedding day details. When I got off the phone Judith asked if I was a photographer and said that she meant to book a photographer for their extended family on this trip and time got away. Her sister has been ill and going through treatments out of town and just made it down for the trip to enjoy some quality family time. Judith was so sweet and said it was just meant to be that we met and that she wanted me to take their family beach pictures at Rosemary Beach. I was scheduled to leave the next morning, but was able to scramble to find a hotel room and extend my stay one more night…which of course I didn’t mind doing at all, since I never like to leave the beach!
Hope you enjoy the photos of this family and the happy cousins together. And, if you have room in your prayer life, pray for healing for Judith’s sister, April.
