Almost three years ago I got a call from a nervous mom who had a session reserved with us for family portraits on Mexico Beach. She was on vacation, with a little baby and a very sick toddler at the hospital. As a mom, I know how stressful it can be to have a sick child… but a sick child, in a strange town while you are on vacation. That is even worse! Fast forward to the next Spring and everyone was healthy, the sky was amazing and we were able to do their session. That was two years ago and I was so excited when they contacted me to do Spring beach portraits for them again this year. The baby is now an almost three year old, the toddler is a 5 year old and they are even more adorable than the last time I photographed them!
We originally planned the session for a Friday evening but upon watching the weather discovered it was a 100% chance of rain that day. So we moved it ahead a day to Thursday, thinking we would be safe. It was a little overcast and a little breezy but it was beautiful. Just as we were taking the last portraits of the session Addison said “rain!” Sure enough a few seconds later it started to very lightly drizzle. Then the bottom fell out and we all took off running to the cars for cover. We just did beat the rain and I’d say these portraits are worth a few raindrops falling on our heads. 🙂

June weddings… we love June weddings… we love them more when they are indoors though. lol It gets ridiculously hot here on the Florida and Alabama coastline during the summer! Ladonna commissioned us to photograph her June church wedding near Chipley, Florida. When she said she would also like an engagement session, I was thrilled! Engagement sessions are a perfect way for us to get to know each other before the wedding. For this engagement session, we traveled to downtown Chipley, Florida. It was  perfectly clouded day and we had the train depot and downtown all to ourselves. Hope you enjoy a peek at Tim & Ladonna’s engagement session. We look forward to their wedding this summer!

Madilyn turned the big O-N-E just before this session. When we were planning what to do for her beach session in Destin Florida, we knew it needed to be spectacular. Not that little miss couldn’t be spectacular even in a potato sack but you know, we like to make sessions extra special. 😉 I’d say ruffles, pearls and snuggles with mommy are pretty special for such a special little girl!
