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.

Little Squish Is Three Months

Our little squish is a little over three months! Part of me can’t believe we can say we have survived three months (hello, no sleep!) and part of me feels like it has gone by semi fast.

She is starting to laugh, which is the best sound in the world and her smile kills me. She is apparently camera shy because any time Cory or I bring out our phones or camera, she goes straight faced. (Ha!) And she is the LOUDEST talker ever. (Which I love!) Ask anyone who has met her. Ha!

This little dress and gold bracelet were mine when I was a baby. My mom saved it all of these years!

When we found out we were pregnant, this song became the prayer I started praying over her life.

Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me
You have been so, so good to me
Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so kind to me

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights 'til I'm found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn't earn it, and I don't deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God.

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!
