    “M” Family {Marathon Family Photographer}

    What a busy week this week has been already. 7 Mile Bridge Run event coming up in a few days, but first, when gramma comes to town AND all the grandkids are here too….you do photos! Blended family photos with gramma are kind of our thing. 5 kids under the age of 7? No worries at all.

    The “H” Family {Key West Family Photographer}

    This is as much fun as I’ve had in a few weeks. We had to reschedule this session at least two times because of wind! Because the family is local, we were able to be picky and boy am I glad we were. These two kiddos had me running and laughing almost the entire session. Their laughter and energy was so contagious!

    “J” Family x 4, is it? {Marathon Family Photographer}

    Has it been 4 years? Maybe 5? I remember when this family first contacted me to do photos with twin 3 or 4 year olds. I brought my oldest son to help me carry a few things and he and the twins hit it off. We had so much fun, laughing and carrying on, but honestly I never really expected to see the family again. Well, 4 ish years and several sessions later, I’m so happy to have been able to watch these babies to grow into kind, smart and cute kiddos. Maybe next year we’ll get an accurate count… 🙂

    “W” Family {Marathon Family Photographer}

    26 in your group? No worries at all! This family was so much fun (and organized, which helps!). It was the second time I photographed a few of them a first for a few others. Everyone was together for mom and dad’s anniversary so they took the time to get some updated photos. We did the large group (as seen below) but also did group shots of the smaller families. All in about 45-60 minutes!

    Best of Marathon – 2018 {Marathon, FL Photographer}

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you again! I am honored to have been voted as Best Photographer in this year’s Best of Marathon awards.

    The last 13 years of photographing in Marathon have truly been special to me. I’ve enjoyed capturing many very special moments for some very special families. From engagements and the exchange of vows to squishy newborns, graduations and growing families, thank you for continuing to let us capture it all. Thank you also to my amazing assistant (Ginger Sayer) who, in addition to being the best dog whisperer, tambourine player and sunglass holder, does a fantastic job making sure this small business keeps running. Thank you to the Marathon Rotary Club and The Weekly Newspapersfor hosting this fun event last night.

    Starkey Family {Marathon, FL Family Photographer}

    So fun to see friends from high school all grown up and with a family. I photographed the older brother 4 years ago and got to meet the little guy this weekend!  We did get the parents in a few shots, but those will have to wait for sharing.

    Reef {Marathon Children’s Photographer}

    Mr. Man is graduating from Pre-K and heading to the big boy school next year.  Mom had some fun ideas for photos that she plans to duplicate SEVERAL years from now when he’s a senior in high school so she wanted a quick session for him.  Isn’t his shirt cute? These were taken at Tranquility Bay in Marathon where the weather cooperated 100%.  I love when that happens!  The weather, combined with the personality of this little pistol made this session a lot of fun.  We actually took several more photos than we intended (even some family photos), but when you have Dad and Mom around too, what’s a photographer to do?  Oops!

    The Davis Family {Florida Keys Family Photographer}

    The Davis family contacted me just before their arrival to see about some family photos while they were in town on vacation.  At first, I didn’t have any availability but because they were flexible (read: willing to get up early on vacation), we were able to work it out.  The vacation was the family Christmas present to each other and they wanted to capture what they described as a “special family moment.”  In addition to grabbing some family photos of mom and dad, brother and sister and the whole family, we grabbed some maternity photos for the new parents to be.  I’m so glad we were able to squeeze this crew in because I know it meant a lot to them to capture this experience/vacation.

    The C Family {Hawks Cay Family Photographer}

    The C family contacted me about some blended family pictures of the grandkids as a surprise for Gramma during their stay on Duck Key near Hawks Cay.  The personality of these kids made the session so much fun. There was a storm in the area which made for perfect cloud cover and great light, but unfortunately, that usually means the blues and greens in the water don’t really come out as well.  So, we focused more on close ups for the most part.  We did some individual shots and some group shots for Gramma, then just did some fun photos as we had time.  We also got to utilize one of my favorite trees right on the Hawks Cay grounds just before dark. This family comes into town at least annually, so I hope to see them again.

    Tobin {Marathon Family Photographer}

    Coming in from New Jersey and staying at Hawks Cay on Duck Key, this family opted to leave the resort for their family photos.  It was pretty windy but nothing a few patches of mangroves couldn’t fix.  I love how happy this group was.  The kids got along well (usual for this age) and were fine with whatever ideas I came up with and whatever Mom and Dad could throw at them.
