I love my trips to the beach when I get to see friends, meet new babies, and take pretty photos. I love the Baker family for sure! I’m blessed to have reconnected with Shannon for her wedding and now get to photograph her growing family!
Shanon and Ryan also have that strong beach vibe being so laid back and relaxed during their sessions. We met at one of my favorite spots, Atlantic Beach Town Center. I mean with a place like this how can you not be relaxed! I love the variety of store fronts, landscaping and of course the access to the ocean (the parking not so much). The area is also pretty meaningful for at least Shannon and I. We’ve known one another since our synchronized swimming days which means she’s known the beach for a long time as well.
You know, I can’t help but often wonder what my work will be like years down the road. Will I watch these families continue to grow? What stories will I tell of their lives through my lens? I don’t take for granted the times I get to see these little ones grow and change. I love how little MS’s personality has grown so much over the years. Now I’ll get to watch her grow into being a big sister to baby B. Who will she become over the years? I strangely feel a part of each of the families I photograph and I can’t imagine not keeping up with where they go and what they do. I just love this life I live, keeping up with friends, and witnessing their lives! Shannon, thanks for sharing your life with me!
