Let's talk camping adventures as a family, motherhood, adoption, current inspiration and family portraits in 30A. 


Welcome to the blog! This is the place that I love to share recent camping trips with my family, thoughts on preserving our stories through portrait preservation and of course family photoshoots on our renowned 30A beaches.

I love being a seaside photographer and especially love meeting families that have been coming to Seaside, Florida for decades. Gerrie’s family has been coming for nearly twenty years. See their seaside family photos here!

         This family photoshoot in Panama City Beach, Florida is one of my annual favorites!! Have you ever met someone you have long admired only to realize that they are just as wonderful in person as you imaged them to be? That is Emily! I have long loved Emily of Emily Morgan Brown. […]

One of the greatest joys of photographing families has come in the form of watching them evolve through the years. Seriously. It has become one of the greatest gifts of my life. The Anderson family is one of those families! I first photographed these guys in 2018 when they were a family of three with […]

When Laura and I first spoke, she said that she followed me on Instagram back in the day and knew that one day when she was in 30A she would have me photograph her family. Years have passed and this year was the year!! I was so humbled when she told me that she waited […]

This is a family that I just adore! Not only is Zhenia one of the most patient moms I’ve ever met, but an incredible florist in 30A with an immaculate eye for beauty. We’ve developed a friendship over the years in this little industry and I’m fortunate to call her friend!! They recently welcomed their […]

the sun was vividly golden _ This afternoon the sun was vividly golden, which made for some of my favorite portraits of the Beavin Family. It was a special trip for this new family of three because it was the first time Baby S had seen the emerald waters of the Gulf. Sarah has spent […]

With so much extra time at home the past few months, I started documenting more of our normal day to days in b/w film. There is something about b/w film that takes an ordinary scenario and makes it seem timeless, thought out or more appealing than color at times. These are just a few of […]

I literally remember it like it was yesterday! I was sitting in the Seaside parking lot waiting to meet up with Jen for lunch. We had gone to the same college together – had mutual friends – but rarely hung out together because she lived off campus while I lived in the dorms. I also […]

I will be the first to admit that I am not good at going out on a limb or making mistakes. When Cory and I were first getting to know each other, we asked each other to describe the other in five words. I will never forget that one of his words for me was […]

I am most drawn to the beach in the “off” times – sunrise, sunset, cooler months or in this case when a storm in rolling in. I wish I had my camera with me while I strolled this morning on the beach, but since I didn’t my iPhone was what I used! The beach was […]
