Little Isabel is the sweetest thing ever! When Emerson and Alex first reached out to me, they said that they had a new addition to their family and it was going to be her first time to the beach. I could tell that they were in love with her from our first conversations, but seeing them with her ... I was about to burst. 

Forty-five minutes before we were set to meet, a storm rolled in. I was in the parking lot early (story.of.my.life.) texting Cory with all of the, "Oh my gosh. This is horrible. What should I do? Where did this thing even come from? It's been so beautiful! Should I call them and cancel?" He told me to wait it out, and holy smokes, I am glad we did. Emerson and Alex were such troopers and were completely unfazed by the massive, dark clouds. As soon as we started photographing (hoping and praying for the best), the clouds turned into the most evenly lit, pink sunset tones. 

And, I died. 

Emerson and Alex, thank you for being such troopers. You have made the most gorgeous family.

I truly believe behind every great child are really great parents. Lance and Esther were the epitome of that. It was such an honor to meet up with them in Watercolor, Florida to photograph their family beach vacation. It was their first time to the area, but hopefully not their last. <3 

We started off playing on the beach, but by the end of the night, we were in the water. Even though they were scheduled to see a movie in Seaside right after our time together (and were now soaking wet), Lance & Esther completely went with it. 

Sometimes you just meet people that you want to be friends with... for like, forever. The Bozman family were those people.

Little Baby Blair Rosemary Beach Family Photographer

There is nothing better than the color white, simplicity and well lived moments.

Having a child rearranges your story. It takes you to levels of care that you didn't know could exist inside of you. It takes you to places of deep sacrifice, where the reward of it trumps anything left behind. 

Real moments....... real moments. Sigh.

Justin & Courtney's Seaside Engagement Destin, Florida Photographer

If there is something we can all be sure of, it's that something about the sea brings pieces of us alive. 

Justin & Courtney met right out of high school. It was a normal work day for Courtney until a cute guy walked into the store with a few of his friends that caught her eye. As the guy and his friends were checking out at the store, she found herself being drawn to him. Unbeknownst to Courtney, that guy was drawn to her too. Within a few minutes of leaving the store, Justin sent Courtney an invitation on social media followed with a message saying that he couldn't take the chance of not reaching out to her. 

Justin proposed on the beach in Destin, Florida where we took their engagement photos. Their killer style and the undeniable looks they gave each other said it all. 

You can see more of this engagement over at the

Lovely Knot.
