Did you know that it’s not always newborns of the human variety who are photographed in our studio? This sweet little babe made her first appearance in the studio for her newborn puppy portraits.

First I need to apologize for taking sooooo long to blog Chad & Kristin’s gorgeous Carillon Beach wedding. I’ve finally had the opportunity to blog the remainder of 2011’s sessions and weddings before 2012 kicks into high gear.

Now… onto the fun… Chad & Kristin are just plain awesome! There is no other way to say it!

After photographing their engagement session and Kristin’s bridal session I felt like I already felt like a part of the family. I love getting to know my wedding couples and their families, building friendships. πŸ™‚

Thanks to the ladies at Carillon Beach Wedding & Events made the day run so smoothly. Everything went perfectly the entire day! Thanks to Sheena Ratliff for second shooting with me! πŸ™‚

Have a peek at Chad & Kristin’s big day…

I love photographing babies… put them on the beach and I’m in heaven! Sweet little Peyton is the 4th baby and second girl of the Cooper clan. Georgia is a good friend and also a photographer here in the Panama City area.

Peyton has to be THE most smiley newborn I’ve ever seen…

During the summerΒ  there are days when we get afternoon thunderstorms. Most of the time they pass, sometimes they don’t. With this particular session, I am convinced that this session was meant to be. The session was originally scheduled for the day before but Jaimie (dad) ended up in the hospital due to illness. The next day we watched the weather and we all said our prayers. We headed for the beach hoping that the dark clouds and weather would pass. The moment we stepped onto the sand, the sprinkle stopped and the clouds parted giving us an amazing sunset! Like something out of a movie!

If you believe in the power of prayer.. which I do wholeheartedl!… please remember this precious family in prayer. Jaimie is battling cancer and I know this family, who also believes in the power of prayer, would be grateful if you would lift his name up.

Jason & Kasi came all the way from Mid- Alabama just for me to photograph them… well maybe they were here for the car show on Panama City Beach but they planned for a studio session with me as well. Take a peek at their session in the studio…

This beautiful family came into the studio for their first family portrait since their youngest was very young. I was so happy to be able to capture for them a family portrait to enjoy for years to come!

LOVED this family! Their sweet little boys was so full of smiles and giggles my cheeks were hurting from laughing with him so much. From the moment I pulled up to their Seaside beach house on 30a and got out of the car, this little fella was giving me the BEST looks! I think he liked me a little bit πŸ™‚

This was the very first shot of the evening…

I knew from the moment I met with Tiffany & Dave their wedding would be elegant & fun! If you scroll back a few pages you can view Dave & Tiffany’s engagement session on Panama City Beach as well!

Their wedding was held at Anna’s Veranda on Memorial Day weekend. Though the beaches were bustling with people and the roads were packed, as we turned the corner onto Orange Street, it was like turning into a quiet little corner of the beach. Anna’s Veranda is tucked in a cozy corner of the beach away from the crazy crowds but still overlooks the beach. It’s perfection!

Enjoy some of Dave & Tiffany’s big day!
