Summer Romance

December 29, 2016

There’s nothing quite like a warm, sunny day on the beach, snuggled in the arms of the one you love. Sometimes “the portrait” isn’t the one where you are both looking at the camera and smiling. Sometimes its the portrait that takes you back to a specific moment in time, that brings back that feeling of butterflies you once felt. Amanda captured this sweet couple so well during their stay in Rosemary Beach.

There are so many reasons vacation is the best time to have your family portraits made! Below I’m going to highlight just a few.

No stress…

Planning your color palate and dreaming of that portrait over your mantle is the fun part. It’s when real life sets in that things get stressful. Between work, sports and children’s activities, the day to day hustle and bustle of life, family portraits are just one more thing to add to the list of “to do”. On vacation it’s the opposite! Everyone is together, off from work, there are no sports practices to make, no ballet recitals to work around. Just you and your family, all together, at your most relaxed.

This is especially true for large and extended families. When is the last time your entire family had a portrait made? Your beach vacation in Florida, Alabama, or Mississippi is the perfect opportunity!

Be ahead of the game…

If you haven’t had your portraits made during the summer, around the fall, you will realize you’ve got to figure out portraits for your Christmas or Holiday Cards. If you’ve had your portraits made while on your beach vacation, you’ve got it taken care of! Whether we have already designed a beautiful custom card for you or you are planning to DIY with the digital portraits you’ve purchased from your session, there will be no added stress during an already stressful time.

You’ve also got gifts taken care of. What better gift for grandma and grandpa than a gorgeous portrait of their grandchildren, or maybe the entire family? We can even package it beautifully for you so all you need to do it present it!

It’s different…

Our high school senior clients especially love this factor. You can have what everyone else in your hometown, may not! Can you imagine a better backdrop than fluffy white sand paired with the crystal clear emerald water of the Gulf of Mexico? Add in an amazing sunset and your family…you’ve found perfection!

These are just a few reasons why having your family, senior or children’s portraits made while on your beach vacation is such a fabulous option! So if you are vacationing on the beach, whether 30a, Mexico Beach, Destin, Pensacola, Orange Beach, Dauphin Island, or Biloxi, we are your Beach Portrait Artists and we are there to help you every step of the way!

Are you a ‘Pinner’ ?

February 10, 2014

Do you just love finding new recipes, outfit ideas, cleaning solutions and organizational options in one place? A place that will hold onto those things for you so you don’t have to bookmark them or hope you can remember where you saw them. That is exactly what Pinterest does for you! Though I am sure you already knew that and are already on Pinterest, unless you’ve been living on a deserted island somewhere. If that’s the case, then, hey… now you know!

What you might not know is… we are on Pinterest too! All you have to do is search for Knowles Portrait Design on the main Pinterest page. We have ‘what to wear’ ideas, highlights of places we love to visit for sessions, funny things, even recipes our family has tried that were thought were awesome!

One more bonus is that you can pin our portraits featured on the blog, right here from the blog! Simply hover over any image and a ‘Pin’ button will appear. So we make it easy to share what we love with you and what you love with everyone else! We hope to see you over there. In the meantime…HAPPY PINNING!

Most summers we spend photographing sweet families in places like Destin, Rosemary Beach, Fort Walton Beach and Panama City in Florida. Or along the Alabama coastline in Orange Beach and Dauphin Island. Every once in a while we get a special request that’s a liiiittle further away. We LOVE to travel so we are always up for a roadtrip!

When the Breeden’s contacted us about traveling down for a session we were thrilled. They were going to be vacationing at the Tradewinds Resort on St. Pete Beach, FL, just outside of Tampa. The summer is our busiest time, with certain weeks of summer filling up the December before so it was great that they contacted us when they did.

The Breeden’s were even sweet enough to send us a rave about their session and portraits. Here is what they said…
“Rebecca is great to work with. She makes your photography session a unique experience and has a way of making everyone feel at ease. I love our family portraits so much and always receive compliments from friends and family. There’s no better choice for beach portraits than Rebecca Knowles!”

Thanks so much, guys! We really enjoyed our time with the three of you!

This sweet family was a blast to photograph in Santa Rosa Beach Florida this summer. The smallest of the Sheffield family was a hoot! She has the best little scrunchy smile, don’t you think?!? We had such a great evening with the Sheffield family!

Our summer books pretty far in advance. We take appointment reservations up to a year in advance for the beach. Mr. Smith booked nearly that far in advance! He reserved this August beach portrait session in Destin as a surprise Christmas gift for his beautiful wife!

Wouldn’t you know on the day of their session, it rained… and rained some more! Then just liked it was ordered from above the rain stopped and we were given an amazing sky just in time for the session to begin.

Enjoy a few from this awesome session!

Marla (aka the Mama) & I planned out their session well in advance and had everything set to go THEN tropical storm Debby decided to change our plans! There was wind, there was rain… there almost wasn’t a session! 🙁 Thankfully the Lundborg’s were flexible enough (and willing enough) to get up before dawn to make this session happen! Marla is a photographer herself and knows how important great light is for beautiful photographs. If the weather wouldn’t give us a sunset, we would take a sunrise!

 

The light was just gorgeous that early Saturday morning. Don’t ya think???

Their clothing was a perfect match to their super fun personalities! I laughed so hard I cried during this family’s Destin beach portrait session. I can’t wait to photograph them again next summer!
