Most of the local families I photograph ask for locations other than the beach, but not this family! We met up at Navarre Beach, and spent an evening playing in the sand and walking along the beach – oh, and taking some pictures along the way!

The Hettmann family is currently living in China, and were in the US for a few weeks to visit with family. Lucky for me, that visit included Navarre! We chose Navarre Beach for their session, and enjoyed watching a beautiful sunset while photographing them.

The Jaco family visited Pensacola Beach on vacation in July, and I was so thrilled when they hired me to do family portraits for them. These three sisters were the most polite, sweet, adorable girls! I loved the stories they told me about their vacation – crabbing in the bay, riding boogie boards in the […]
