WaterColor Florida Photographer Bell Family
30a film photographer

Minutes before our session was to begin, the bottom fell out of nowhere! (This is Florida for you. Ha!) This didn't stop the Bell family. They said, "Why don't you come to our home and photograph us here?" Immediately my mind went to am I going to have enough light? Are they going to love these or be disappointed that we were not able to take any on the beach? And as you would have it, this ended up being one of my favorite sessions to date!

We started off taking photos of them on their porch in WaterColor, Florida then went inside for more candid portraits. Uncle Red grabbed his guitar and began to play while the girls ran around. These guys were such a pleasure to photograph!

30A Family Photographer Anderson Maternity

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!

Grayton Beach Portraits Lanier Family
30a photographer

I absolutely love this family session because it is my sister and her gorgeous family!! They love the coastal dunes and overgrown trails in 30A, so it was a perfect combination! 

I truly think one of the coolest perks of being a photographer is getting to create these portraits of my own family. It is so neat to know what stage of life they are in and be able to document that along the way! Sappy but true! 

And how ADORABLE are their kids! I am biased but I also know they are the most beautiful kids ever! ;)

Under the lights, they danced the night away.

T + C's Triple Crown House wedding in Santa Rosa Beach was magical. The love they have for each other is full of so much grace and gentleness. I loved watching them together!

Victoria Austin Designs Newborn Fairhope, Alabama Film Photographer

There is nothing like watching Victoria Austin Designs become a Mother. I don't know if welcoming a child into the world could ever feel natural the first few months, but she would make you think otherwise! She seamlessly transitioned into this new adventure!

Let's just talk a minute about this nursery. You will want to live in Baby A's room! Tori's eye for design exploded into the cutest, detailed space! Every little element was thoughtfully curated and meaningful! 

I can't get enough of this family. I just can't. 

And Otto - well, you may remember his presence years ago in their family portraits. Of course he had to be in a few portraits with his new brother!

You Are My Reason
seaside-florida-wedding-photographers-kayliebpoplinphotography

Everyone says to know your "why." 

I have spent so much time searching for mine. One year I thought it was ______. It changed a month later when I thought maybe my why is ______. I was searching for a reason to validate my reason for pursuing photography. Everyone said once you figure that out, everything else falls seamlessly into place.

As time has gone by and my "whys" have changed, I keep coming home to the things that have always had a death grip on my heart before photography was ever in the picture. They have been there for so long that I never thought about them being my "why." I don't even like using the term, "why." I like to call those never ending things my reason because when I think of a "why," I think of something that does change with circumstance, maturity and life. But a reason - that evolves out of the depths of who you are. It has been unwavering since the first day. 

At the end of every day - He is my reason. My family is my reason. People are my reason.

Photography is just a God given vehicle for it all.

Before blog posts, emails, inquiries and deadlines, I came alive when I captured the essence of a friend or family member on my point and shoot camera. I loved who I saw in front of me - so many people, even some on different continents - but they all reminded me of Him. It was a way for me to say to people - look at you! Look at how perfect you are and perfectly loved you are! 

That is a feeling I have not lost yet even today. 

I can get emotional at a wedding or while photographing a family because I see what they may not see in that minute. I feel like screaming - look! You are in the midst of the beginning of the most beautiful commitment you will ever make after salvation. Look! You are absolutely stunning! Look! You are leading those sweet kids! They are watching every beautiful move you make! 

I then look at my husband and our two dogs. They are my reason. I have prayed for that man before I ever knew his name. We have spent the last 5 or 6 years watching God mold our hearts for more than we thought possible. A lot of that molding came through our dogs! Ha! That is for another time but God knows how to best teach us. ;) 

A busy Summer is starting to slow down. I am overwhelmed with thankfulness for the people I was so lucky to meet this year. I am also reminded heavily that while my "why" has changed over time - my reason in Him never has nor will. 

Kyte Family Watercolor, Florida Film Photographer
watercolor-florida-film-photographers-kayliebpoplin

The sweet Kyte family had a blast staying in Watercolor, Florida this Summer! They were such a pleasure to spend time with and photograph!

These kids made me wish my parents had taken the advice of my sisters and I when we told them that we needed them to adopt us a baby brother growing up. Watching these two play and poke at each other in the sweetest way made my heart melt! 

I have so much respect for these guys! You can tell a lot about a family when photographing them. The Kyte family has an undeniable special relationship full of acceptance and grace!

Destin Photographers | Destin Bay House Wedding | Shawn + Amanda
destin-bayhouse-wedding

Shawn and Amanda's wedding day was a mix of tradition, elegance and coastal details! Shawn and his groomsmen got ready at a super cute bed and breakfast in Fort Walton Beach, Florida called Aunt Martha's. This gorgeous house right on the water was the perfect place for getting ready details and portraits (and not to mention the views!). Windows all throughout the house let in amazing natural light which is every photographer's dream! 

When I initially met Shawn and Amanda, I was taken back by how calm Amanda was. Her poise was incredible! I immediately felt like I had known her for a while, which made me even more excited to shoot their wedding! 

They had their ceremony at St. Mary's Catholic Church and their reception at the Destin Bay House in Destin, Florida. Their day couldn't have been prettier! Every detail from the ceremony to the reception was thoughtfully planned thanks to Amber at Beachside Ceremonies and Events! She absolutely made the whole experience so smooth for Shawn and Amanda, but also the vendors! 

One of my favorite parts of  Shawn and Amanda's wedding day was the friendship that they shared with their bridal party. Everyone was so excited for them and cheered them on throughout the whole day!

Wedding Day Morning 30A Florida Film Wedding Photographer
alysbeach-fl-wedding-kayliebpoplinphotography

I remember my wedding day like it was yesterday. We had an intimate wedding with our closest family and friends! (We wouldn't change a thing!) The morning of my wedding I remember vividly. I remember waking up with my sisters, receiving a phone call that my wedding photographer had gotten there hours before she was suppose to (She blew my mind that day!), having all of my cousins down the hall from us... it was a big family reunion. I loved every minute of it. 

BUT. 

I wish I had breathed.

There are two things that I am not good at : having all eyes on me and relaying emotion. 

That morning was just like we had planned. It was smooth. It was full of people I wanted near me during that time. But, I never took a minute for me to collect myself so that I could be in the right frame of mind. 

Instead, I was very emotional. BUT. Because I hate being the center of attention and am not good with showing emotion, I choked it all down and didn't show any the whole day. Not when I saw my Dad for the first time. Not when Cory and I had our first look. And the worst - not during the ceremony when Cory and I were saying our vows. I barely looked at him. Not to sound dramatic (because all is well two and a half years later. Lol!), but he remembers that really well. I couldn't, though. I couldn't hug my Dad when he first saw me, I couldn't show too much excitement when I saw Cory for the first time... I sure couldn't look at him when everyone else around us was crying during the ceremony. I couldn't let my guard down because I knew if I did, it wasn't coming back up. 

I didn't take a minute for myself before everything started to let myself be okay with everything I was feeling.

This editorial was based off of the morning of your wedding. If I could give any advice to anyone for the morning of their wedding, I would say breathe.
