Beach Family Reunion – Lifestyle

I have had the privilege of photographing part of this sweet Niceville family before, but for their family reunion beach session, they requested that I follow them around and capture them just being together. This is my favorite type of photography – lifestyle. I get to capture them being together as if I was a fly on the wall. I feel you really capture true emotion during a lifestyle session. I sure do miss the ocean! xo

Just beautiful! What a lovely maternity session!

It’s a Frozen Birthday!

Before our big move, I wanted to throw my daughter a simple and sweet birthday party with a few friends during the Frozen craze. It was very cheap and simple, but we managed to make it feel like a Frozen tundra in the house! Here are few of the special moments from the party.:)

Thanks to Pinterest for the fun ideas! Of course it never looks like a Pinterest party, but I think we did a pretty good job with paper, scissors and a printer!

Super sweet Seaside Engagement

Sarah and Mark’s engagement session was bittersweet for me as it was my last Florida session before our move to Colorado. They really made it a memoriable session, I had a blast with this sweet couple from Ohio! They are getting married in Miramar Beach in October and I cannot wait to come back to photograph their wedding!

So, this was an awesome moment during our session and this is why I love Seaside! This gentleman spontaneously grabbed Mark’s arm and began strolling so naturally. Of course, I had to capture it! It was a really funny moment and also helped get some natural grins from Mark after this happened.:)

The first time the two met was in a Biology class they had together in college. It all began when Ashley Stephen approached Ashley Nicole and needless to say she was not interested! She thought he was just another class clown trying to distract her from her studies. With great persistence and a little luck, on the last day of the semester, they crossed paths in the school parking lot and Ashley Stephen finally asked her out, after a long semester of trying to get her attention. That first conversation blossomed into a four year romance. They celebrated their love and tied the knot on March 8, 2014.

They got engaged on a cool Florida saturday, December 08, 2012 to be exact.

Ashley Nicole recounts their engagement story:
“Actually it was really simple…We were at his house and he said I’m sorry I didn’t get you anything for your birthday and I won’t be able to get you anything for Christmas either because I got you this {and pulls the ring out!} I was speechless during all of this and really surprised. He then said will you marry me and I said yes:)We celebrated that night at his work Christmas Party.”

Mickey Mouse & FSU

Ashley was a pleasure to photograph for her senior portraits! She brought along her two favorite fans, her mom and her sister, who helped her, mainly with laughing, but really allowed her to be herself and her true colors shined through the lens. She is a huge Disney fan, so it was fitting to capture her wearing her 2014 Mickey Mouse graduation cap.:)

This will be the last time I use this location, not only because I am moving, but because I drove by the other day and they had bulldozed the awesome little rundown shack and are prepping the area the build. So sad! You would never know this is a great location, unless you’re a crazy photographer that sees the beauty in a run down field and knows exactly when the wildflowers begin to grow there. And you have to also be crazy enough to bring your clients there and say, trust me! I am so happy they did. Best wishes, Ashley, on the next exciting chapter in your life!

Melissa
