I LOVE big families! I love the connections between parents, children, siblings, cousins. Coming from a close family myself, its always wonderful to see families who vacation together here on Panama City Beach, Florida. What better place for a little family reunion than the beach!

This family was so much fun! I think you will feel that in their portraits 😉

Its always an honor when you are asked by someone in your field to photograph their family.  Back in 2009, Kim of Kim Hinkle Photography contacted me from Illinois about some portraits while they were here in Destin on vacation. We had a blast capturing them in a few locations, including of course Destin beach. So I was thrilled when Kim asked me to photograph them again this year! This time we skipped the beach and headed to the beach community of Seaside.

Panama City Beach Orange Beach photographerThe Martins commissioned me for a beach session in Orange Beach, Alabama.  They were referred to me by the lovely Stephanie Lynn of Stephanie Lynn Photography in Lafayette, LA.

I LOVE traveling for sessions! Nothing beats a new backdrop… or even the same backdrop in a new location 😉 Which is just what this beach session was. All beaches are not created equal though. Thankfully, Orange Beach still has some of that fluffy white sand and emerald water we have here in Panama City Beach.

The Martins have some of the most adorable children… and one more on the way!

I was thrilled when we decided to do Alaina’s bridal portraits in an old southern mansion! What an incredible backdrop the Oakleigh Manor made for a beautiful bride in her gorgeous dress!  I was already envisioning what I would do with her before we even arrived. It was as perfect as I had imagined!

Here are a few of Alaina’s portraits…

You might remember us ‘Awaiting A.J.’ not long ago. Well, he has made his arrival and he is an absolute doll! I just love being able to cuddle precious new babies and then watching learn to walk and run…then you have to chase them to get any cuddles 😉  He was a perfect little model for us and I’m not sure he let out a real cry then entire time he was here at the studio. Such an easy going baby!

Rosemary Beach is one of my favorite spots to photograph clients… especially families! There is so much great architecture and cool little spots that no two sessions out there are ever the same! So of course I was thrilled when the Shipp family contacted me and were staying in Rosemary Beach for their vacation. We had a little thunderstorm threaten  in the afternoon, but we were blessed with a  beautiful evening and not a drop of rain!

Here are a few from the Shipp family portrait session on Rosemary Beach, FL…
