I LOVE being asked by kids to do something.
I love that they are interested in the session and they feel comfortable enough with me to ask.
I honestly love working work extra hard editing childrens requests because not only is it something different to play around with but I know they see the value in the work.
I love that it is a moment the kids can share in having fun with mom/dad.
I love that I KNOW they will feel all warm and fuzzy when they look at it.
Prepping for the beach
Who doesn't love a beach vacation!?
A day at the beach, relaxation, free from work and home responsibilities.
Only to find new ones, sand in everything, sunburn, over heated and tired kids, carrying everything but the kitchen sink, wondering if your keys will still be there when you get out of the water.
Read below to see how we've come to combat a few of these problems! Between Caitie being a Florida native and Amy's 14 years in the area, they have learned a thing or two about making a trip to the beach a little easier. Read on for some tips on how to deal with sand and heat.
Pets are family too
We love furry friends and are always pleased to add them into our sessions! While pets are not allowed on the beach without a permit we can get some images nearby or in other locations.
Here are some things you should remember to bring to ensure everything goes smoothly:
We love photographing children! They are entertaining, honest and wear their emotions on their sleeves. We are well rehearsed in children, Caitie has four, Amy has five, and has taught at the elementary school level areas of preschool, special education and art for many years before turning to to photography full time.
Our ultimate goal is for your child feel safe and to make sure they are having a good experience. Working together with you we will help your child feel comfortable and truly happy so we may capture your child's true self and personality. We want you and your child to smile when looking back at these images!
Our Editing process
Photographing clients is the one part of our job clients see, we do much of our work before and after the session. Editing is harder, and easier, than one would imagine. It takes a lot of classes, research and testing to get it right and we are always learning and expanding as our programs are. Take a look below to get an idea of how we like to edit.
We understand in this day and age people prefer their images digitally so they may immediately show them off and delay thinking about the whens' and whys' of prints. That's great! We have no problem with that, sharing helps our business grow and we want you to have all the beautiful images we spent time creating for you! This is why we offer digital images with our packages. But it is not our preferred way to deliver images to you, we much prefer prints and here is why.
You may see this word throughout our website and be wondering, what does that mean? Is it just a buzz word or does it have an actual meaning?
There are different types of photographers. I'm not saying one way is good or bad, just different. There are many wonderful photographers in our area, so which fits YOU?
While we would love to be the photographer of your dreams we do understand if we are not.
We want to help you find the right fit for you.
The one that delivers what you want is the right one for you.
You want wall worthy prints. You want a book you can leave on the coffee table to remind you of the good times, the fun times when the whole family was together and happy.
We can help.
THE MANY FACES OF GEORGE
We meet at Grayton Beach State Park and George immediately showed us he was a beach loving boy.
30a High School Senior Portraits - Eden Garden State Park & Grayton Geach State Park
Oh my heart! We certainly LOVE senior sessions! Especially when we get to shoot at two locations. I just had to write and share about this session. Eden Garden State Park in Santa Rosa Beach and Grayton Beach State Park were the perfect locations for this creative senior's portraits. There are so many good ones to share, check them out!
