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. 🙂

Don’t you know stars belong in the sky?!?

Amanda, one of our two fabulous associate photographers, traveled to St George Island recently to photograph the Robertson’s. They were spending the week on the Island with the whole family enjoying a nice vacation during Spring Break. On St George Island, it really is like taking a break from everything. Its quiet, non-touristy (is that a word?!? lol) and just a short distance to the quaint fishing town of Apalachicola. Amanda made great friends with the littlest Robertson’s hunting for seashells and playing at the edge of the water since it was still a little chilly in Florida during March this year.

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!

We absolutely Love this Family! The Cokers are so much fun. Their two little boys laughs light up this gorgeous sunset! A little back story. Over the years  the Cokers had become dear friends of ours. We really look forward to any excuse to get our two families together! This was a little bittersweet. Fred, a U.S. Navy Diver was retiring and this adorable family was moving away to their next adventure. While we were sad to see them leave, we were thrilled when they asked us help commemorate their time on Panama City Beach with an exclusive session in beautiful Seacrest Beach!  We enjoyed this session so much that we just had to share!

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!

There are advantages to living in the South. Like having green grass and gorgeous skies even in the middle of December. 🙂

That’s exactly what we had for Leah’s maternity session!

The Laney’s are such a sweet family! We were thrilled when they asked us to photograph them on their vacation in beautiful Destin Florida.  It seems like there is never a “dull” moment with little boys! They certainly mike things interesting in our house full of boys. The youngest of the Laney Family looks like he has mommy wrapped around his cute little finger. It’s always fun to work with families like ours who are filled with little boys.

Although it was a windy day the waves were simply amazing for the Wallace family photographs in Panama City Beach Florida. Getting to photograph their teenage boys was neat and gave us a glimpse of what we have look forward to with our own sons! The day was perfect and the photographs made wonderful Christmas cards for the Wallace family.

An evening photographing the McCool family in Destin. Their name says it all! A beautiful family and a beautiful sky was the recipe for this perfect session!

When photographing families, we of course do classic posed portraits that will be displayed on your walls for years to come, but we don’t stop there. One of our goals during a session is for everyone to have fun! So once we finish the posed portraits, we move into more fun, playful and candid portraits.
