Family of 5 Beach Portraits - Palm Beach Resort guest

What an exciting beach session this was! The Gardner family from Oklahoma was super brave rushing out right before a major summer storm hit our area. We started a little early but were able to get some great shots of this amazing family!

Gulf Shores High School Senior Pictures - The treasures of Southern Alabama

Southern Alabama is rich in agriculture, gleaming with white sandy beaches, glistening with blue emerald waters and even showcases a gorgeous downtown city life radiating historic French and Spanish architecture. The melting pot of rural, city and beach life in such a small area is Alabama's best kept secret!

Southern Snow - fields of cotton

Every fall in South Alabama we get our own version of snow. No you can't make a snowman or snow angel or even throw snowballs; its a visual "snow". No matter if we are taking a Sunday drive or going to walmart we are blessed to witness miles and miles of white balls of cotton resulting in what we call "southern snow". It is a beauty I will take with me throughout my life; This beauty cannot be explained but has to be experienced. Its a surreal beauty and I encourage everyone to take a trip down south, travel some of our country roads, slow down and take in the beauty. 

Cotton pictures are quintessential of all southern photo shoots and as any Southern high schooler we had to incorporate our southern snow in Megan's High School Senior portraits. Of course Megan had to show off her "ALABAMA ROLL TIDE" shirt where she will attend next fall.
Always easy,  always fun, always beautiful, always a favorite: Our Southern Snow -

MOBILE, ALABAMA  - est. 1702
Fort Louis de la Mobile

"Mobile was established in 1702 by the French and later occupied by then Britain, and lastly Spain." Mobile's architectural style is similar to New Orleans as they were both founded as "brother cities" by the French Bienville brothers. Mobile's "architectural styles are "French, Spanish, British, Creole, Catholic, Greek and African" http://www.mobile.org/mobile-charm/history/"  

This brings us to our city session! I'll always have a love for New Orleans; being born and raised on the bayous of South Louisiana so when I have the pleasure of visiting Mobile I am comforted by the sheer similarity of the two cities; it makes me feel at home. But I rarely get to visit either of them for one I live at the beach and two most of my clients want beach pictures. (no complaints of course :) so I was super happy that Megan was game for an hour trip to Mobile! It was surprisingly quiet for a weekday and I even got to lay in the middle of the road for a second (my signature pose; it always shocks my clients lol) And even though we didn't get one of my laying in the road Megan snapped one of me on the sidewalk lol. I enjoy my job a little to much sometimes.  Here are some of our treasure from the day!

You can even See a Mardi Gras Bead hanging from the balcony!

THE BEACH - ORANGE BEACH, ALABAMA

Alabama's best kept secret is out! Did you know alabama has beaches that look just like the florida panhandle? Most of us living outside of Alabama had no idea and would vacation in florida and it Wasn't util i moved to mobile that i found out alabama has beaches too. And they are beautiful! 60 miles of white sandy beaches looking out at the blue and emerald warm waters of the gulf of mexico. what a paradise! 

And Of Course Every Gulf Shores High School Senior has to take a picture at the beach! we didn't have to go far to get some breathtaking pictures. Our spot was at Alabama point east; sometimes called perdido pass. (it has a few names) 
Amazing skies, a touch of wind and the just the right amount of sunset to create studio like perfection! 

Olivia Senior Pictures / Southern Wheat Field / Gulf Shores

MISS OLIVIA

High School Senior Southern Pictures in a Wheat Field - Jean Jacket and Floppy Hat - Boquet Beach portraits 


One of the most significant events in our life is the passage from high school to the “real world.” Whether that be college; a job; or an adventure, the journey it took to get you to that moment was substantial in every way. Senior portraits encompass all of life’s joys, triumphs, hopefulness, and passions. The world is literally in the palm of their fingertips waiting to be experienced. I love being able to photograph seniors; to be surrounded by young, fresh, hopeful, passionate, courageous, inspiring, and full of life people. They’re inspiration inspires me! And Olivia is one of those people.

My favorite attribute of senior portraits is the genuine excitement that is emanating from the each senior. They are so enthused to share their past experiences from high school, and want to expose those accomplishments to the world. It is awe inspiring to capture these moments because we often forget how to be proud ourselves. High school is tough and so is life. Seniors embrace that toughness and are courageous to the very end. When one door closes, another one opens.


SanRoc Cay Entertainment District and Marina in Orange Beach, Alabama

During my session with Olivia, the first location I chose was the elegant and prestigious San Roc in Orange Beach. The gorgeous stone columns and elegant staircase were a perfect match for Olivia’s classic personality. Her southern charm was able to shine in this timeless venue. The entire photo shoot was like watching a ballet with the beautiful grace of the Olivia and the stunning background. We were swept away by the ambiance of the venue because it was so enchanting. Her photos truly resemble a work of art to be cherished for years to come. The combination of elegance, grace and an old-fashioned background truly exemplifies the driven nature of Olivia. To show her true sophistication, Olivia wore a black formal gown that added a sort of regalness to the entire shoot.

Southern Wheat Field - Silverhill, Alabama

My second location was a wheat field located in Silverhill, Alabama. And nothing says “Southern Charm” than a gorgeous wheat field as the background of your portraits. The way the sun hits the blades of wheat in a most glorious way that creates a shimmer of gold in every photo. This was so complimentary to Olivia’s flowy white dress, and southern blue jean jacket (What a classic look!). And as a southern lady, she wore that wide brimmed floppy hat with sass. I chose this location and outfit because Olivia is not only refined but fun, silly, and light-hearted. Her beautiful smile is now an everlasting work of art that signifies her turning of the page into college.

Olivia is a young lady with so many admiring attributes. Some of my favorite things about her is her passion in horseback riding, photography, painting, and swimming. If that isn’t enough, she wants to be a trauma surgeon or an Emergency Room physician. She is graduating from high school as an EMT-Basic and will begin EMT-Advanced this summer. In the fall, she will be attending the University of South Alabama as a biomedical science major. She definitely has a bright future ahead of her and I am so happy that I was able to capture this shinning end to an amazing chapter.

Life is all about beginnings and ends, but we must remember to focus on those significant parts in-between. We must remember what it was like to be a senior who could not wait to start life and understand everything. When you go to gulf shores, look out to the horizon and remember these dreams. Remember what you wanted for yourself when you were on the cusp of beginning life. The ocean is still there. Now, you just need to brave the waters and start your journey.

Monarch Butterfly in Pensacola, Florida

Hello my fellow beach lovers, 
My latest venture is capturing stunning landscape and nature photographs during the slower months. This past weekend we drifted over to Pensacola, Florida for a nature walk where we were absorbed in beautiful flowers, trees, and wildlife. As if the scene weren’t perfect enough, we were also surrounded by 100s of extraordinarily colorful butterflies. I had to take this opportunity to test my nature photography, and decided that this is something I can do with beach photography. I'm no expert but I’m pretty sure this is a Monarch and what a beauty he is! Because my passion is beach photography my landscape album will consist of photos of the beautiful Orange Beach, Alabama, gulf shores  Alabama, perdidio, Florida, Pensacola Beach, Florida, the gulf coast beach, Alabama Beaches and florida beaches. All the photos in my landscape album are free since I love giveaways! So, download and share today! Please visit

Beach Portraits with the Rumsey Family - Boquet Beach Portraits Orange Beach Alabama

These guys are some of my favorite people! They hired me to photograph their wedding a few years ago and have come back every year for me to capture more memories of their growing family. I'm so glad I'm able to see them every year and maybe one day they'll make the move to Orange Beach, Alabama permanently! (fingers crossed)

Pano Shot of Boquet Beach Portraits Office View

I am in awe every time I step on the white powder sand. I am in awe of the colors in the sky. I am in awe of the emerald green and dark blues of the water. I am in awe of the green moss covered rocks that make up the jetty. I am in awe every time I walk on the long boardwalk. How thankful I am that this is my view almost every afternoon. How thankful I am that I can see the colors that are painted in the sky. Everywhere I look is beauty, everywhere I look are colors, everywhere I look brings a smile to my face, everywhere I look I am in awe..... 

How simply break-taking is this view of "The Pass" Alabama Point East, Orange Beach, Alabama. This is where I bring my clients to photograph their memories and every time we turn the corner and they see this view they are so glad I brought them here.

Farrill Family Lagoon Ave, Gulf Shores/The Pass Orange Beach Alabama - Boquet Beach Portraits

Sometimes you just get rained on.....

But we made decided to make lemonade from lemons and got some great shots from it! We started out taking family beach pictures at the beautiful pass in Orange Beach Alabama but the threatening thunderstorms ran us off the beaches. We were able to get a few shots in but we were rushed and decided to re-do the Farrill's family beach session at their private beach house on Lagoon Ave in Gulf Shores, Alabama the next day.

Wow, the scenery was breathtaking! So colorful, greens, pinks, yellows, blues; we found a gem! I'm so excited we got rained out and had to retake the Farrill's family pictures; and I'm super excited I got to experience the beauty of their private home. Next time you get rained on look for the rainbow!
