Family Beach Portraits, Sanibel Island

So maybe 6 years ago I photographed my friends, Chris and Kim, at the beach, just the two of them (first photo below).  And here we are again, back at the beach plus two very adorable little girls!  It’s fun to see how much can change…even just looking back over this year.  Speaking of, where on earth did 2013 go?!

Just before Christmas we headed out to Lighthouse Beach on Sanibel Island for a sunset photoshoot.  These two little girls kept me laughing and having such a great time.  While one little girl is much more dainty and delicate, not really interested in getting sandy, wet or dirty…the younger sister didn’t mind getting soaked and even trying a bite or two of sand!  Such cute little girls!

Happy New Year!  I’m excited for 2014 and what it has in store (traveling???!)!

Tabitha + Bill, Lighthouse Beach Sanibel

I photographed Tabitha and Bill’s engagement portraits at Lighthouse Beach on Sanibel Island…at sunrise!  Such a sweet and fun couple, props to them both for getting up early!  I don’t often get to shoot in the early morning hours (mainly because my bed discourages it 😉 ), but I must say how pretty the sunrise on the beach is…so fresh and new.

I’m so pumped to photograph their wedding next month…congratulations Tabitha and Bill!  1
