Birmingham Magazine May 2019 Beach Issue Cover

Sometimes it’s the simple concept that conveys the message best! I shot this image during my favorite time of day on the beach in Seaside…afternoon light and glistening water. I’d like to be in that chair right now, what about you?! Don’t miss this great 30A Beach Guide by Birmingham Magazine available on newsstands now.

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.

Stars & Stripes Shoot at Rosemary Beach, FL

While on 30A for a working vacation July 4th week, I set up a little impromptu Stars and Stripes shoot I’ve been wanting to do for a while. Thanks to the families that brought their adorable kids in their patriotic swimsuits to join in the fun.
