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. 🙂

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!

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!

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.

What a joy and pleasure to photograph the Bringle Family again in Panama City Beach, FL. Due to the demand of photographing the emerald coast we scheduled a session at sunrise after being completely booked for sunsets. We think you’ll agree that both sunrises and sunsets are equally breath taking. A little back story. A few years ago we got to be involved in helping Mike surprise Susan with an air plane wedding fly-over proposal

We were so blessed to Photograph this wonderful family during their vacation to orange beach Alabama. The session rained was out the day before but we were able to get some sweet photographs of this family. These three gorgeous little girls were a special treat to photograph the beaches Alabama Gulf Coast.  Beach Family Photographer

The Carter family was such a sweet, Southern family to work with! The littlest Carter gave us all a run for our money, we had so much fun with them. She is such a cutie and a little bit of a firecracker, which is a good thing when you have two big brothers to keep up with! 🙂

We were able to work with the Carter’s to design several wall portraits for their home. Our favorite was this first image below. This portrait became a 30×40 portrait for their living room.

When we photograph families, especially larger family groups we always do standard perfectly poised photographs. However, it’s not always about everyone being perfectly poised. Sometimes it’s about togetherness and capturing the real connections of the precious families we photograph! This was our second year photographing the Johnson family in Rosemary Beach.
