The wonderful thing about custom photography is that your session is totally customized to you, your family and what you want from it.

While talking with this mom & dad-to be prior to their session, they let me know… serious photographs were not for them! They also wanted to some how incorporate their Harley Davidson into the session.

So we started in the studio…

Zack and Amanda were such a fun couple! Amanda used to be a photographer herself and Zack is a videographer for Neves Media, a nationally recognized video production company located here in Panama City. So if I were to mention doing something that might sound odd to the average person, Zack & Amanda were willing, as they know how awesome it will be in the end!

Here are a few from Zack & Amanda’s special & super fun day..

Amanda had a custom designed ring featuring a blue diamond and the diamonds from her grandmothers earrings.

Who says just because you have a church wedding, that you have to have stuffy formal photos?!?

After the wedding, Amanda changed into the cutest purple Converse shoes, complete with the date painted onto the side of them. We took advantage of the sidewalk chalk art for this shot. So cute!

My very favorite shot of the day… In talking prior to the wedding Zack mentioned that he would like to replicate the Rat Pack photo of the 1960’s with his groomsmen. So after their formal photos the guys & I headed down to the Corner Pocket to see what we could do. What do you think? I think we nailed it, complete with our own flair. Thanks to Zack for the awesome idea!

The Hattaway family met with me on Panama City Beach in October for a family portrait session, while here for a weekend stay from Alabama.

Such a sweet, loving family! I had a great time talking with them and playing with the smallest of the Hattaways.

Here are a few images from their session…

On a windy day, the last week of October, I got to play with the Meadows children on Panama City Beach. We had fun hunting for seashells and playing in the edge of the waves. Mr. Michael even plopped himself down IN the water at one point.

Here is a peek at the Meadows session…

The Lake family commisioned me to photograph their beautiful family while on vacation here on Panama City Beach. One thing I love about photographing families on the beach is that every beach session is unique! Every day is different on the beach. You never know what kind of cool clouds or colorful skies you will get. This evening was one for both amazing clouds and gorgeous colors and lots of birds!

As we walked out onto the sand, there were hundreds of birds. The littlest of the Lake family loved chasing them!

Here are a few from the Lake family session…Panama City Beach Children's Family Photographer
