I have never seen kids get more excited to be able to go into the water in their church clothes then this bunch. It was this beautiful freedom of childhood. The waves were decent, the water was warm, and by the end we all needed another bath.
What a kiss! They have been dating 16 years and married one by Elvis in Vegas. I can not make this stuff up and I just love when I hear peoples stories about their lives. I hope I am smiling as much as these two are when I am their age ! Loved meeting them and their family.
I have a soft spot for family beach houses. I think it started when I worked at the Jack Leigh's gallery and he did a series of Tybee beach houses like this of the coast. This beautiful house has been in the family for over fifty years and it makes me happy to think of all the happy memories in this house.
What beautiful nights I have had the last two weeks. I love this family, I have photographed them alot over the years and they have become more then clients but a great friend. And mama can rock any haircut! Beautiful Bree!
I have been photographing this mom since she was a kid and besides trying to get over myself about how old I must be to be able to photograph someone I photographed as a kid kids I look at it how wonderful that she wants to continue this with her children. We met at this exact spot when she was about 16 or so and here we are again, three kids later and a wonderful husband. Their whole family, cousins, uncles and all will all be one of my dearest families and one of the lucky people I have met to help push my career where it is today. I used to hand deliver my silver gelatin prints that I had printed...
Just when I drove up to Tybee this night it started misting just enough to be annoying. I called my clients and went just around the corner to meet them at their house instead and it was not raining but instead had these beautiful rain clouds creating wonderful light. I enjoyed this session so much and felt like I had known them all my life.
So enjoy seeing this family, our twins our only two months apart so we can sympathize with how tired they make us and also how much fun it is having twins. Dad was a great baby wrangler and you always know you did your job when even dad is smiling at the end and gives you a hug to tell you how much he enjoyed the session . Thank you guys!
