The Tarr family

November 17, 2011

I usually do my blog posts in order of session but I figured with Christmas or holiday portraits, if I go in order it might be July before they get posted 😉

I had the awesome pleasure of photographing this lovely couples wedding at  Cabana Blue on October 1 of this year. Such a great place for a wedding! A few weeks later, Jennifer contacted me about some family portraits!

Here is a peek at the Tarr family’s Christmas portrait, holiday session in the studio…

We braved the stormy skies for the Vasquez family session. Hoping to beat the rain and get the session completed, we did just that… and then the rain beat us! LOL  Just as we were walking back to our cars the down pour started and it was a sea of people running from the beach to the parking area. I think it was totally worth it though! At least everyone stayed dry until after the session was finished 😉

Remember how I mentioned with the Manuel family below that they were referred to me by some awesome past clients… well, this is them!

I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet family last summer in Orange Beach, Alabama (yes, we do travel for sessions) 😉  At that time, Ashley was expecting baby #4. This Summer I got to meet precious Caroline and see how much those other sweet babies had grown!

Ashley is the owner of Maddie & Ashley  an awesome online children’s boutique. She has some clothing perfect for beach sessions so be sure to check it out!

I love seeing my past clients year after year as they travel to our beautiful beaches… what I also love is when those past clients send their friends our way!

Thus is the case with the Manuel family… and just like their friends who referred them they also referred another family (who’s session peek I will be posting soon!). It’s like 6 degrees of separation, I love it! ;-P

Without further ado… here is a peek at the Manuel’s session…

I won’t say it’s uncommon to have clients with the same last name and it’s not really uncommon to photograph clients staying in the same location. What is uncommon is photographing two families with the same last name (no relation) in the exact same location two nights in a row!

This Walker family was also a pleasure to photograph. I had SO much fun with the twins and they were so sweet and cooperative. Not to mention their sweet doggie who made the portraits that much more special. We had another gorgeous evening and after we finished with the portraits I so enjoyed sitting on the beach and talking with them. It was such a pleasant evening!

We had such a gorgeous sky for the Walker family’s session on Seacrest at the Villages of South Walton on 30a. Summer often brings afternoon thunderstorms that are usually gone by evening. They sometimes leave behind the coolest clouds in the sky which make for such a beautiful backdrop!

I just loved photographing the Jacobs family… and especially Bailey, that gorgeous golden doggie. She was such a good little model! This session was a surprise for the grandmother for her birthday… we won’t say which birthday 😉

Hope you enjoy a peek at this Cape San Blas session…
