Being a true Floridan that has never seen snow, I grew up within walking distance to the beach (30A Florida to be exact!) so it does not surprise me one bit that my speciality is beach portraits.
Regardless of the season that you're in, and whether your babies are big, small or furry, this trip to the beach deserves to be captured by something other than an iPhone. I would love nothing more than to prance around the beach with you while providing a joyful and genuine style that results in clean, beautiful, and timeless images.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I am SUPER picky about light, especially on the beach. Most people opt for the one hour before sunset time slot but I do have sunrise sessions available 15 min before sunrise for the early birds!
What time do sessions typically start?
Light pastel colors always photograph beautifully on the beach! My favorite colors are baby blue, ivory, blush, and khaki. Stay away from neon colors and any large patterns! A flowy dress or skirt for women is always fun to play in the wind with!
What should I wear?
I provide you with a session date, and a “rain date” so that you don't miss out on the SJ beach experience while you're in town. Don't fret if it rains during the morning! The most beautiful sunset sessions happen when you think it would have been rained out!
What if it rains?
We could not be happier with our experience with Sarah!! She is the sweetest to work with, energetic, fantastic with kids and very talented! Our photos turned out absolutely beautiful and will be treasured for years and years to come! Thank you Sarah!!

"fantastic with kids"
Hands down the best photographer I've ever hired! She is so sweet and enthusiastic! Makes you feel so comfortable. Also checks your teeth for lipstick and fixes any fly away hairs! Her bubbly personality is contagious and her photographs will be forever be some of my favorite pictures EVER. Do yourself and family a favor and book her! I promise you will not be disappointed!

OH MY GOSH! I honestly don't think I can have another photographer do our pictures now! I honestly am convinced we were separated at birth! I cannot thank Sarah enough for the experience of getting our Anniversary pictures done, I had a blast, she made me feel like Hannah B coming in hot the first night of the Bachelorette! I HIGHLY recommend using her if anyone wants pictures done at the beach!
"i had a blast"
Absolutely amazing!! So professional and sweet!! She will put you right at ease the second you see her! We can't wait to get the rest of our pictures because the sneak peeks we've seen have us all giddy! We will be calling her for every Florida vacation we take from here on out!

Full disclosure: I stole the squeaker out of my dog's toy for this sweet family session and squeaked it like a crazy person to get sweet Clara to look at me! This is one of my favorite sessions to date as Felisha and Jeff were the sweetest people and didn't judge me for my crazy tactics! So thankful for families that allow me to act like a fool for their benefit!
Candance is a talented photographer herself and when she reached out for me to take her pictures I was more than thrilled to capture her and her sweet tribe! She recently had gotten married at the same beach so it was special to her to return with her family. Photographing another photographer can be nerve racking but Candance, Fei, and even her son JP were down for ANYTHING! We pranced around the beach until we lost the last bit of light and had a blast!
Where do I even begin with these two? Madison and Ethan came down to Orange Beach for their anniversary and wanted to document this special time in their lives! Madisons outgoing personality and Ethans chill but down for anything vibe made this session one for the books! I just loved getting to know them and their love story. Now to convince them to move down to Orange Beach so I can get them in front of my camera more often!
I traveled down to Destin, Florida to photograph one of the funnest families to date! The kids were such a joy to work with and even the youngest Bryce didn't get bored of me and my horrible jokes the entire session! Laura and Shawn even allowed the kids to jump in the ocean at the end and I was SO FOR IT! I had so much capturing their kids being kids at the beach!
