A little over 5 years ago we received a portrait session inquiry for a sweet family who was coming to visit Panama City Beach. While that may be a daily occurrence, the size of this family was not! At that time, it was about 30 family members stemming from mom and dad down to their children and grandchildren. We had an amazing time at the portrait session, which ran remarkably smooth for having so many involved.

Fast forward 5 years to last winter when Maria contacted us. It was that time again, there had been a few more family members added…even a great grandbaby this time! In July we met again on Panama City Beach where we shared laughs and fun moments with the entire family of 35.

Thanks again to the Vu family for trusting us with your priceless memories and letting us share a little of your extended family vacation!

Building Beach Memories

October 10, 2017

Mr. and Mrs. Greer had 3 handsome sons… they resulted in some beautiful daughter-in-laws and four GORGEOUS granddaughters! That gives me a little hope that there might be some girls in our family’s future. 😉

I thoroughly enjoyed my evening with the Greer’s during their extended family portrait session on 30A. We met at their beach house in Seacrest and were welcomed with a magically clear sunset. We played in the sand and shells, splashed at the edge of the waves and took in those special moments everyone wants to remember. The following morning we relived it all as we reconvened at the beach house to review the portraits from the night before.

I love the special connections and dynamics we get to witness, and forever preserve, with the wonderful families we have the pleasure of working with, like the Greer family!

Dockside in Perdido

October 2, 2017

We love the planning aspect that comes with tailoring each family beach portrait session to each individual family. It means so much when you see the portrait everyday that brings on the feeling of joy and memories of the fun times you shared on the beach with your family. It means even more when that portrait tells a little more of the story of your family. So when Ms. Goodwin mentioned during the planning of their session that they would like to include their boat, I was thrilled!

We held the session on the Florida Alabama coastline between Pensacola and Orange Beach in a little town called Perdido. It’s beautiful spot and not quite as crowded as some areas of the beach. Starting in the sand with the beautiful (and full!) waves as the background we photographed the whole family, individual groupings and the children, etc. After this, we made our way to the bay side and hopped on board… well, the family hopped on board… I may or may not have been lying on the boardwalk to get that perfect angle of their beautiful family aboard the boat. Whatever it takes, right? 😉

We loved working with the Goodwin family and look forward to seeing them again!

Birthdays at the Beach

September 26, 2017

What better way could there be to end a family portrait session in Cape San Blas than with cake?!?

This sweet little fella celebrated his first birthday with a trip to Port St Joe Beach in Florida. We started out with a family portrait on the boardwalk and in the sands of the cape, some fun playing with brother & sisters and concluded the evening with a celebratory beach ball birthday cake smash! When he was all finished, we had the siblings join in for some yummy cake too!  So much fun!

Senior days

January 24, 2017

Nope, not senior citizens…though we love them too! 😉 We’re talking about High School Seniors! We loved working with Reid and his mom to design his senior portrait session on Panama City Beach and we will be sharing more soon!

When you vacation near the beach you can take advantage of all of the possibilities! You can have something unique that all your friends back home don’t. Such a special way mark a historic year in you (or your child’s) life!

Summer Romance

December 29, 2016

There’s nothing quite like a warm, sunny day on the beach, snuggled in the arms of the one you love. Sometimes “the portrait” isn’t the one where you are both looking at the camera and smiling. Sometimes its the portrait that takes you back to a specific moment in time, that brings back that feeling of butterflies you once felt. Amanda captured this sweet couple so well during their stay in Rosemary Beach.

There are so many reasons vacation is the best time to have your family portraits made! Below I’m going to highlight just a few.

No stress…

Planning your color palate and dreaming of that portrait over your mantle is the fun part. It’s when real life sets in that things get stressful. Between work, sports and children’s activities, the day to day hustle and bustle of life, family portraits are just one more thing to add to the list of “to do”. On vacation it’s the opposite! Everyone is together, off from work, there are no sports practices to make, no ballet recitals to work around. Just you and your family, all together, at your most relaxed.

This is especially true for large and extended families. When is the last time your entire family had a portrait made? Your beach vacation in Florida, Alabama, or Mississippi is the perfect opportunity!

Be ahead of the game…

If you haven’t had your portraits made during the summer, around the fall, you will realize you’ve got to figure out portraits for your Christmas or Holiday Cards. If you’ve had your portraits made while on your beach vacation, you’ve got it taken care of! Whether we have already designed a beautiful custom card for you or you are planning to DIY with the digital portraits you’ve purchased from your session, there will be no added stress during an already stressful time.

You’ve also got gifts taken care of. What better gift for grandma and grandpa than a gorgeous portrait of their grandchildren, or maybe the entire family? We can even package it beautifully for you so all you need to do it present it!

It’s different…

Our high school senior clients especially love this factor. You can have what everyone else in your hometown, may not! Can you imagine a better backdrop than fluffy white sand paired with the crystal clear emerald water of the Gulf of Mexico? Add in an amazing sunset and your family…you’ve found perfection!


These are just a few reasons why having your family, senior or children’s portraits made while on your beach vacation is such a fabulous option! So if you are vacationing on the beach, whether 30a, Mexico Beach, Destin, Pensacola, Orange Beach, Dauphin Island, or Biloxi, we are your Beach Portrait Artists and we are there to help you every step of the way!

Hello again!

June 22, 2016

Hi friends! It’s been a while since we’ve been active on the blog. We figured it was about time we got back to it. 🙂

It’s been a hopping summer so far and we can so excited to meet all of our new clients in addition to seeing the familiar faces of our returning clients. We’ve got a lot of blogging to do from the sessions that have taken place in Panama City Beach, Rosemary, Watercolor and other parts of 30A. As well as the portraits we’ve taken on the Alabama coastline in Orange Beach and Dauphin Island.

On an extra happy note… Due to distance we were recently not able to offer sessions on the Eastern Florida beaches, in Cape San Blas and St George Island for a while. However, we are happy to announce we are now back to offering Associate Sessions in St George Island, Apalachicola, Cape San Blas and Port St. Joe, once again! We’ve missed our seeing our friends in the East and are thrilled to be back in the area.

Be sure to check back often for some more pretty portraits as we update the blog. In the meantime, we will leave you with this sweet little sailor. He’s ready to set sail!

This portrait was taken on the beaches of Pascagoula, Mississippi just a little East of Biloxi, Mississippi.
