The sun was out yesterday and we had the distinct opportunity of working with this cute little BIRTHDAY gal. She was one yesterday, and let me tell you what, she had an awesome beach party. We had a ton of fun, and even though it is February, you couldn’t tell it by the background. While most of the country is still in winter cycle, we are currently enjoying a rather nice flip flop wearing spell. Thank goodness too, because we had so much fun playing on the beach with our new found friend. We are so glad her mom called us for her family beach pictures in Gulf Shores, one-year-old parties are just so much fun. We spent the afternoon looking for sea shells and adventures along the shore. The warmth of the sun on our faces was amazing, and all couldn’t believe it was still winter. That is what I absolutely love about living on the Gulf of Mexico. You never know what you are gonna get, but it always seems to resemble paradise. If you haven’t visited the Coast yet, you are truly missing out. I would highly recommend you plan a visit and discover for yourself. Our area is […]
Have you seen this month’s issue of Eastern Shore Parents magazine? Well if you haven’t you need to rush out and get your own copy. We had the opportunity to photograph the cover this month, and our little bundle of joy is now officially famous. If you want an autograph copy, I am positive we can make it happen.

Don’t mess with TEXAS, at least that is what they say. I personally don’t intend on ever finding out… Thank goodness we have known this guy since he was just a little bigger than waist high. They have been visiting the Gulf Coast his whole life, so he knew when it came time for his senior portraits, the coast was the only place he wanted his senior portraits taken. Of course we did the beach thing, but we also took a little time to visit a local tree tunnel so we could diversify his senior shots a little. So what better place to show off the don’t mess with Texas theme, by looking down the barrel of a shot gun. The shot of the day just sparks interest to me with all the different perspectives going on. You have the barrel length, the road lines, and even the tree tunnel forcing your eye into the future. We had so much fun during this shoot, thanks so much guys for letting us be your professional family photographers over the years. We are positive we will be seeing you guys again in the future and can’t wait to here what college pick […]
In my opinion there is absolutely nothing better that a Perdido Key sunrise beach portraits session. The hot summer heat just hasn’t set in yet, and the empty beach creates a perfect spot for fun. I get it all the time, “there is no way my kids will smile that early”, well that is absolutely the opposite of what normally happens. The beach at sunrise is a spot for adventure and discovery. Sometimes that discover is that your kids are actually morning people. We had a mom from last week at sunrise email us yesterday that the kids enjoyed the sunrise so much they have actually woke up early every day on vacation to spend a little time at the beach all by themselves, before retreating to the air conditioning during the hot mid morning sun. A huge thanks to our super smilers from this mornings sunrise session. We really enjoyed meeting you, and can’t wait to see you again next year. Have a safe trip, hopefully you too will see a few more sunrises before you have to go back to work next week. If your planning a last minute trip to Perdido Key or Gulf Shores, please take […]
Are you in need of an Orange Beach vacation? With the hustle and bustle of life we must take time to rejuvenate and there is no better way that a little salt water on the toes. So what are you waiting for, pack the family into the car and start heading this direction. You have sand castles to build and tourist things todo. The summer is almost over and the kids are growing up way to fast, so hurry hurry hurry!!! Not saying you shouldn’t drive carefully, but time is of the essence, haha. A special thanks to our wonderful family from last nights sunset for taking a week off and enjoying a little Alabama sunshine on the coast. We had a great time making connections of love, and we are absolutely positive that these guys will have some memories to cherish forever. Forever is a strong word, but with great photography, it is easy to understand what will be passed down from generation to generation. I am positive this little princess will hold today’s shot of the day dear to her heart for the rest of her life. That is what we shoot for, art that continues into the […]
Family beach photography in Perdido Key is a great way to remember a family trip to the beach this summer. From happy natural poses to candid shots, photography can capture the emotions of your happy family. Whether it be a beautiful sunrise session or a late afternoon sunset slot, perfect beach photography happens in these two sweat hours of light. Any other time is yields unprofessional results, and thus slots are extremely limited. Call us today to see what we have available. We would love to schedule a session with your family. This mornings sunrise session was absolutely beautiful. Sure it was early, but as they say, the early bird gets the worm. The worm in this case is a perfect sunrise backdrop, and empty beaches. The sunrises are also way more comfortable than the sunset sessions this time of year. This morning when we started, the temperature was a cool 74 degrees. At the start of last night’s sunset session, the temperature was a blistering 93 degrees. Sure they are early, but from a temperature standpoint alone, you can easily see why sunrise sessions are so wonderful. So if you are making the drive down to the Gulf Coast […]
Are you planning a trip to Laguna Key Gulf Shores? If you are, please give us a call and let us explain why we should be your number one choice for professional family beach photography. Just like our group from last night’s sunset session, we are positive we are the right mesh for your family as well. We got to spend the afternoon down in Laguna Key in Gulf Shores, and let me tell you, it was awesome. It is positively one of my favorite places to work. From the beautiful dunes, to the crystal clear waters, it is quite possibly the bees knees. The session went so well, the moon even made an appearance. The kids we all smiles and the vibe was perfect. Just the way we like it… When we book a family for a beach portrait session, we like to make sure everything goes off without a hitch. With a little planning and knowledge, we can help guide your through the whole experience as well. Like the old saying goes, the devil is in the details. We plan ahead so we don’t miss a beat, which relates to perfect portraits every singe session. We love pre-session […]
I absolutely love this time of year, it is just perfect for a Perdido Key family vacation. Spring is in the air and the busy summer season is right around the corner, and the beach is absolutely amazing. The water is crystal clear and the shore line is pristine. If we didn’t live in paradise, this would definitely be the time I would want to visit. Our awesome family from last night’s sunset session was sure having a great time. With a week off from work, who wouldn’t be, RIGHT? I normally ask our groups what was their favorite part of their vacation so far, and without missing a beat, one dad offered up not having to go to work this morning. Normally we get responses from the kids like the beach, or the parasailing, but even the kids agreed a little time off was exactly what they all needed. In my mind that is exactly what everyone needs. Surely that is exactly what you need too. When was the last time you spent a week at the beach with your family? Isn’t it about time you got everyones toes a little sandy? What are you waiting for, book that […]
Are you planning a vacation in Perdido Key this summer? If you are, don’t forget to pack the kids. Perdido Key is the perfect backdrop for an ultimate family vacation. With the whitest sand in the country, and the best local vibe, Perdido Key is the spot! What makes Perdido Key different, you ask? Well that is easy, it is truly family oriented. I know you have heard that before, just about every town on the coast says they are, then you get there and you find a bunch of college kids chugging beer, or every other store is a tourist trap. Well Perdido Key is different. It is really a good vibe all around. The beaches are wide open, and the condo builders haven’t overwhelmed the shoreline just yet. I promise it is the spot for your family. You will not be disappointed with a stay on the Key! Last night we had an opportunity to hang out with this little man on the Key, and he said his vacation was A OKAY! He was having the time of his life, and didn’t even mind getting off his boogie board for awhile to make some perfect family […]
Happy Mothers Day with sunset beach memories!!! This morning we got to wake up early and rush to make a mother a wonderful Mothers Day present. See last night we had the opportunity of spending our sunset session with a perfect family on vacation at the Turquoise Place in Orange Beach. Of course we had a wonderful time, and today we have the proud feeling of helping create a happy momma smile. I am positive she is going to be tickled pink, and of course, HAPPY Mothers Day!!! One of the perks of the job, I guess. Our session was fun and the boys were eager to please mom. What a wonderful way to spend a holiday weekend. We take our job very seriously, and we love creating our art. We treat every session as if it was our greatest masterpiece. We want everyone to be able to proudly display the favorites from your session, and we hope your neighbors already know exactly who captured the moment. We are positive our creativity supersedes us. We are positive this is why we stand out above the crowd. It would be an understatement to say we go the extra mile. Most of […]
Well spring has finally arrived down here on the Gulf of Mexico. Are you interested in family beach professional photography? Well, the beach is rightfully open, and this little fellow was out in full force. We had the wonderful opportunity to work with a super family in Gulf Shores last night. Let me tell you, this little tyke was taking full advantage of his warm spring break beach trip. He was all smiles the entire session. After a long winter back home, I can only imagine his delight when the white stuff didn’t equate to a wet cold sensation. He was so happy and warm. His smile we so contagious as well. We spent the afternoon walking the beach and building sand castles. Of course we also knocked them down, that should go without even saying. That is what I enjoy about our family beach professional photography sessions. We like to keep things simple and happy. Our style is very loose, yet we focus on the perfect portrait behind the lens. We are a team, and we have been serving the coast for well over fifteen years now. Every session is unique, but all share the common denominator of “US”. We are […]
