Gulf Shores Orange Beach - Drumwright Family
A family is more than who you share your genes, your relatives, or last name with. Family can be any set of people who make you feel special, happy, or complete. To capture the essence of “family” is incredible, and can be cherished forever. You can capture this in your favorite place to visit or the place where you feel most at home. This beautiful group of people are two families from Lakeland, Tennessee that came together to share their time to take portraits in Gulf Shores, Alabama - The Pass, Alabama State Park in hopes of capturing this very concept.
Our session began at the gorgeous Gulf Shores an hour before the sunset, and the outside conditions were absolutely perfect. The soft lighting from the setting sun gave the family a more authentic look, which was flawless in its ability to exemplify the “family” element they were searching for. There is pure love in the photos this family created. Their smiles are genuine, and it is amazing that you can feel the love just from looking at the photos. Each family member brings a little something to the glow that shines from this session.
In all families, you have new love, old love, and new adventures that give depth to the relationship with old memories and future endeavors to look forward to. The young couple on the left give new life to the family by adding someone special that everyone can share their experiences and continue to grow with. The couples in the middle show the power of lasting love, and how that love is the backbone of any family. Their ability to be happy together have created an atmosphere that they all want to share with one another. As for the young man at the end, he will be facing a new adventure, which comes after graduating high school, and will need to seek counsel from his family. A family perfectly embodies the past, present, and future in every aspect.
Night fell upon the session, but the joy that came from this family was able to shine through the darkness. It is true that you can feel emotions, and you see how those emotions live within people. Every photo from this session tells a different story of love, happiness, compassion, and security that this family feels towards one another. It was inspiring to be able to capture love in its purist form at Gulf Shores during the sunset.
