To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.


--David Viscott

I think it goes without saying that I absolutely love to travel - and one of my favorite places to visit each year is the perfectly nicknamed Sunshine State of Florida. While visiting, I always make sure I also check in with a family that has been a regular client of mine for several years. I’ve been taking photos of this bunch since before their middle daughter was born and always enjoy our annual fall sessions. 

This time, we visited Sand Key State Park. It was a bit crowded on the day of our session, but they were all such great sports as we battled the crowds and even some prickly sand spurs. Despite not being able to find a water bag for my camera, we were able to splash around and play in the waves. While mom was surprisingly okay with the girls getting their dresses wet (and they were happy to oblige!), big brother wasn’t so sure about taking the plunge to get his nice shorts wet. All things considered, we had an amazing session!

There’s nothing better than a little fun-in-the-sun, and after this session, summer is most certainly calling my name. I can’t wait to get back to Florida to see this family again in the fall!

If you also live in the Sunshine State...

I would be honored to schedule a fun-in-the-sun family session with you during my next visit. Check in with me to see when I will be back again, so we can capture some memorable moments together.
