Family Vacation in Orange Beach
October is the absolute best month of the year for a family vacation in Orange Beach.  Locals wait all year for October to arrive.  It is the month we take the beach back.  With much smaller crowds and perfect beach weather, we just couldn’t keep the secret for long though.  So why don’t you book a last minute trip and find out for your self!  October is the month of the best festival on the coast too, the Shrimp Fest.  I mean what says vacation more than fried shrimp from a traveling carnival booth.  Throw in a Cajun Pistol and you can truly have a vacation in paradise. A huge special thanks to the wonderful family we got to photograph at last night’s sunset session.  Thank you for coming down to the beach during the offseason, and thank you for calling us to do your perfect family portraits on the beach.  We are so excited at how great your session went, and we hope you have a wonderful weekend enjoying the world family Shrimp Fest.  Don’t forget to check out our booth on the far west end of the vendor field. For those of your out there that have never […]
Kids Portraits on the Beach
Kids portraits on the beach are some of our favorite sessions.  Little guys and gals have a way of showing their personality when the camera points to them.  Some might start out shy, or others might hit the ground running, but all eventually succumb to the attention of the lens and let their little light’s shine.  It is so much fun watching little ones turn it on.  Watching them has a way of connecting us to our own childhood’s memories.  It is easy to see that the apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree in every shape form and fashion.  Mom’s are always like, he is just like his father, and dads are like, she gets it from her momma.  Either way they are ours, and we must own them without doubt.  Family ties us together and our photography helps our clients remember every little second into the future. We are proud to offer family photography services that capture the true you.  We are the old school photographer you have heard so much about.  We will help you remember every little detail about your family beach vacation in the future, not just a disc of images that end up […]
Family Photography in Perdido Key
Did you know that the best way to put a smile on a grandmother’s face is to give her family photography in Perdido Key.  Last night we had just that type of opportunity.  Let me tell you the grandmother was all smiles, I mean ear to ear!  It was a great afternoon and we had the opportunity of working with her and her wonderful family.  These guys were great!  The beach was pristine, and the weather was surprisingly cool for this time of year.  To say it was picture perfect would have been a shy bit of an understatement.  The session turned out great and fun was had by all. That is exactly how we like to work our sessions.  If it is not fun, something is wrong!  This task is not a simple one either.  Having your family picture made is not always what everyone in the group decides to be a perfect vacation idea.  That is where our experience comes in, and we work to make the whole experience fun and entertaining.  Whether it’s a puppet show or a poot-n contest, we are positive we have a trick up our sleeve to make it fun for everyone.  That is […]
Family Vacation Memories
There is nothing better than making moms happy on Mother’s Day with perfect family vacation memories.  We had the pleasure of working with this beautiful mom and her precious family yesterday afternoon, and it turned out wonderful.  The weather was perfect, the beach was perfect, heck everything was perfect.  I am absolutely positive this will be a Mother’s Day she will not soon forget.  We just get a sense of satisfaction when everything comes together like this.  It is a great pleasure to create art that is so meaningful, especially in such beautiful surroundings at our Gulf Shores beach.  To this mom, our art that we created yesterday will last for decades to come, and serve as a reminder of just how perfect the day was.  Children are going to grow and memories are going to fade, but with our art, the tiny details will absolutely never be forgotten. We go overboard with what we do.  We take our art extremely serious, and it shows.  It would be an honor to share our art with your family.  Ever little detail will be given attention, and together we will create your family some heirlooms that will be treasured forever.  Leave the snapshots to […]
Family Beach Pictures in Gulf Shores
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 […]
Beach Senior Portraits
It is once again that time of year for beach senior portraits. Is your senior looking for a unique shot that encompasses everything about who they are? Are they looking for a shot that shows a distinct destination such as a sugar white sand beach, an urban city scene, or perhaps even one of our local ancient road tree tunnels? We can help! Sun Shots offers up a unique style that blends well with each individual senior. Each session is different and we prefer to let each senior’s own self-shine. We love to incorporate what they do into the session. Do they love music, surfing, soccer, etc? A great portrait is not just a picture, but a realistic impression of whom one actually embodies. We understand this and will go to great lengths to help your connect the dots. Senior portraits are very important and we take the job very seriously. We strongly urge you to book a session before you come on vacation. If we start the conversation before you come down, we can help your senior decide on what props they might want to bring with them, as well as advice on outfit choices which will help drive […]
Gulf Shores Family Beach Reunion
We started the new year off right yesterday afternoon with a Gulf Shores family beach reunion photography session.  The weather was perfect and the beach was completely empty, outside of a few snowbirds, lol.  Everyone had a grand time, and we even managed to squeeze in a little football game at the end of the session.   I think grandfather had more fun than the kids.  The whole session was fun and enjoyable for all.  We really had a great time with this group. Winter sessions like this one are why I love the Gulf Coast.  Our mild winters can be a perfect backdrop for your family reunion.  Nothing like a break from freezing temperatures back home.  While your friends are back home waist deep in the snow, you are on a winter vacation working on your tan.  This time of year, the price to rent a condo or house is also super budget friendly, and you pretty much have the whole town to yourselves.    No waiting in lines at the fried shrimp place, and most of the time the go cart guys will let you get a few extra laps in, I mean win-win, right? So what are you waiting for, […]
The buzz on the street!
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.  
Gulf Shores Vacation Portraits
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we are super thrilled to get together and have a little family time.  Family time is the bee’s knees, and family time goes hand in hand with Gulf Shores vacation portraits.  No matter where you are this holiday season, as long as you are with family you are blessed.  When you are together, take the time to make everyone bundle up and go outside for a few family photos.  Having family portraits on the wall reminds you daily who you are apart of, and family is the one thing that sticks.  You can choose your friends, but family you just can’t get ride of, haha.  No but seriously, take a few minutes out of your turkey day festivities and demand everyone get together and make funny faces at the camera.  We promise it will make the day that much better. I know that the question is going to arrive in a few days, what are we each thankful for, and my answer is simple.  I am thankful for family.  Not just mine, but yours as well.  Please send everyone our regards, and don’t forget to mention that you want to take a family beach vacation […]

Gulf Shores Photos
It is finally officailly FALL, and we are hanging out having fun creating some awesome Gulf Shores photos.  Fall at the beach is one of my favorite times of the year.  With no crowds and still tropical weather, our session last night played out perfectly.  Well we did have trouble with one photo bomber, but our senior said it was okay for a few shots.  This time of year, the sun starts setting earlier and earlier, and I am personally a big fan.  The sweat light seems ever so sweater, and the cool temps make the sessions a breeze.  Last night was a perfect example of a perfect session.  Needless to say our subject rocked the session, and her yearbook shots will defiantly speak louder than her peers! If your senior is looking for senior portraits that stand above the crowd, look no further.  We would love to speak with you about your very own senior beach portrait session.  Fall is the best time of year, and we do have a few slots remaining.  We take great pride in every single senior session we take on, and promise to deliver shots that will represent exactly what your senior is looking for.

Perdido Key Family Beach Vacation
Is your family in need of a Perdido Key family beach vacation?  Are you children looking at you wondering, “Why didn’t we go to the beach this year?”  Perhaps they are running around the living room screaming right now at the top of their lungs, “Toes in the sand MOM, Toes in the sand!!!”  Well it is pretty easy to turn that tune around.  Just book a trip now…  Fall is the best time to visit the beach, and we are positive the chant, “We’re going on a trip, we’re going on a trip!”, will be music to your ears compared to the sounds that they are making right now.  So come on, the beach awaits and we promise your family will thank you for it. These two little cuties from last night’s sunset session were sure happy they got an early Fall break.  They had so much fun on the beach last night.  What fun it must be to be a toddler at the beach.  The waves, the sounds, the sand, oh I can only dream to be their age at the beach.  I am like every adult, dreams of being a child again will never come true, but hey, […]
Gulf Shores Sunset Portraits
One of the most memorable ways to remember your vacation is through Gulf Shores sunset portraits.  The coast offers a dream like backdrop, which is absolutely perfect for your family portrait sessions.  From breath taking sunrises, picture perfect sunsets, to sugar white sands that will make all your friends dream of their own vacation.  We are positive we can help you find a scene that is just perfect for your group.  That is the cool thing about the Gulf Coast.  It is just so dang beautiful.  This is one of the reason’s our little island gets so many visitors a year. Last night we had the opportunity to work with a beach princess for sure.  She was so cute, and really enjoyed the family time on the beach, while showing off her super model training skills.  We had so much fun photographing her family, and she really knew how to turn it on for the camera.  Oh what fun the beach must be looking though a seven month old eye.  Her little senses must be overwhelmed.  From the sea birds to the sounds of the southing waves.  Beach life for babies is where it is at for sure.  This beach […]
