I Said I Would Not Photograph Families

Can I let you in on a secret?

I said I would not photograph families. 😱

By industry standards - it wasn't cool. It was kind of at the bottom of the totem pole. If you booked weddings - or "destination" weddings (gasp!) - you were wanted. Successful. All of those things.

So, I photographed families and didn't market it. I didn't post about it. But very quickly I realized that I was not only having a blast with each family during our time together... but that I loved it. And maybe even more than that - I was good at it. It felt good photographing something that I am at the core of myself passionate about - family.

And now?

Family portraits make up the bulk of my work. AND I LOVE IT. It fuels me. These families mean something to me. Over time photographing them over and over again every Summer, I have come to consider a lot of them great friends. They have reached out to me when hurricanes came through. They have cheered me on and encouraged me to trust God when Cory and I thought we only wanted to be dog parents. They were then the same ones who congratulated me, gave me advice and prayed for us when we had Rylynn.

The thing that I said I would never do has become something that I am wildly passionate about.

It's more than standing behind a camera for me. It is loving these families where they are, sharing in their love for the Emerald Coast/30A area and showing them through their images that the best times are now.

Ashley was GLOWING. No, seriously. I haven't always believed in the pregnancy glow, and even now being pregnant myself, I definitely don't feel the glow (Ha!) but she definitely had it! 

While the Anderson family was spending time together in WaterColor, Florida, I had the immense honor of photographing their growing family! They were the sweetest! And how GORGEOUS does this soon-to-be mom (again) look!

Destin Photographers | Bryce + Stephanie Wedding

When Stephanie walks into a room, her smile lights up the whole place! It is contagious! On her wedding day, I couldn't get over it! She looked gorgeous! I was taken back with how relaxed she was and how ready she was to see Bryce! 

Their first look was so sweet and natural. It was immediately evident that they are perfect together!

Their intimate seaside wedding had everything that was important to them - friends, family and natural elements!

Aaron & Nikita's Seaside Honeymoon | Destin, Florida Photographer

Who does not love being near the Coast? Salty air lingering, crystal turquoise waters, sunsets that seem  to beam colors unlike anywhere else. There is no where more like paradise than here. 

Aaron & Nikita's honeymoon session took place in Destin, Florida at the Harborwalk Village. The laid back vibe fit these two so perfectly. Not only that, the stone-white columns of the Emerald Grande and it's majestic views made the perfect backdrop for this romantic honeymoon session.
