What a cool young man. I almost wrote “kid.” He’s not a kid though. Noah is a member of the Marathon High School class of 2017 and will head off to school in Michigan this fall. Though he started out as a bit of a shy guy at the beginning of the session, I felt like by the end of it, he was actually enjoying the sesssion a little. He probably wouldn’t admit it to his mom, but I think he actually had fun. Gasp! Good luck, Noah! I’m sure you’ll do great things.
Location – Sombrero Beach – Marathon, FL
This is a busy time of year for our seniors in town. Announcements are starting to go out letting everyone know that our seniors are graduating. Plans are being made for graduation, graduation parties and then on to the BIG PLANS. I always like doing senior photos and listening to their plans for the future. I have no doubt that this young woman will succeed in whatever she decides to do. We needed to reschedule once because of rain and the session ended up being super windy, but it was fun nonetheless.
Lindsey and her family spend time at a second home they have here in Marathon and decided to get some of her senior photos done while she was here. Jack over at Two Conchs Charters referred the family to me while they were out on one of their trips. Naturally, since Lindsey is such an avid fishergirl, we included some shots with the rod and reel and her in her Two Conchs shirt. Lindsey will be a senior for the 2018 school year so she’s on top of the photos and can now mark them off the list!
I had another opportunity to meet a fun new family. This family came “all the way” from the Orlando area for a quick stay at Tranquility Bay. The photos were a surprise to the dad and son and the weather didn’t completely cooperate, but we made the most of it and got some great shots. You almost can’t tell it was blowing about 25 straight into the beach area of the hotel. 🙂
I was honored to be selected as one of the 3 finalists for the “2015 Best of Marathon,” and so grateful to receive the “Best Photographer” award at last night’s presentation. During the past 10 years of photographing in the Keys, I have discovered how rewarding, fulfilling, and fun it is to capture those special moments of some very special families. From behind the camera I’ve witnessed the nerves of engagements, the exchange of vows, met and photographed newborns, and enjoyed growing families. I appreciate those of you who took the time to vote for me. Thank you, Marathon, for allowing me to capture your special times!
This session was a bit sentimental for me since I babysat Taylor when she was a baby. She was super cooperative and up for anything when it came time to start shooting. We got a few of her in several different settings with different props including the one below with Taylor and soccer ball. Everyone is so proud of Taylor who will be attending Duke University next Fall.
