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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ˜‰ I’d say ruffles, pearls and snuggles with mommy are pretty special for such a special little girl!

I can’t believe this little guy has gone from a whopping 4 pounds when I first began photographing him in Panama City, to the grown-up little one year old he has become. It’s always a pleasure to photograph the Nadeau family and I’ve enjoyed decorating their beautiful home with portrait art of their sweet family!

At Knowles Portrait Design, it’s all about the experience. From planning your portrait session until your portraits are displayed on your walls, we want every step to be a fun and enjoyable event! With that in mind, we offer a little something extra that’s include with our Artist’s Signature session… an in person ordering session. Those who haven’t worked with us before or have yet to experience custom photography may not know what this is. We thought we would take a few minutes and define it in a little more detail.

What is in person ordering?

An in-person ordering session, sometimes called ‘in person proofing’ or ‘view & order session’ is an extra-special experience and added value just for you. Just a few days following your portrait session, we return to you at your home, condo or beach house for you to view and order your portraits. We will plug directly into your HDTV and present your portraits in actual size! We will bring sample portrait sizes, products and offerings. You can touch and see, in person, the things we offer.

What does this mean for me?

This means we are there to help you every step of the way, to answer any questions you might have. We can go over all of your options to get you exactly what you want in the very best value possible.

I’m only in town for a few days, can I still have an ordering session during my stay?

Absolutely! For our visiting clients we offer the ordering session the day following your portrait session. In certain circumstances it is sometimes possible to have your ordering session later the same day.

Our current and returning clients LOVE this extra touch during their custom experience with us. We love seeing their faces as they view their portraits for the first time!

Have more questions? Feel free to give us a call at 251-219-0602 or send us an email at info@knowlesportrait.com!

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!

I LOVE it when clients choose to add color into their portraits with their clothing. Shades of blue and green look so nice on the beaches of Alabama and Florida. I think the Mecca family made the perfect choice!

Gorgeous doesn’t begin to describe the evening we had with the Farris family on the beach during their Florida vacation! The colors they chose for their outfits were perfect for the sky and water colors.

It also thrills me when my clients choose my favorite image as their wall portrait during their ordering session!

What a fun family these guys were! So laid back and ready to go with the flow. I suppose with 5 kids, you kind of have to! We had lots of laughs during their beach family session in Destin, FL.
