Hurricane Irene {Crescent Beach}

I have been really wanting to get back to the beach for some new surf photos.  When I found out that some people I knew were going to hit the surf on Crescent Beach to try their hand at catching some of the rather large waves tossed our way from Irene, I had to go.  While I did get some neat images of the waves, I did not get the chance to see my friends.  The following images were taken on Friday, 8/26, between 1:30 and 2:30pm on Crescent Beach just south of the Pomar’s Ramp.  There are a couple of brave surfers in the photos but I don’t know who they are….more photos to come.

Hastings Storms {nature photography}

 Visiting with friends yesterday in Hastings, I got to see two amazing views of a very large Florida thunderstorm.  Being around the wide-open fields allowed me an unusual opportunity to see a storm coming and going.  The first is the shot of the storm rolling in behind us as we headed to Hastings (the storm coming behind us from the West).  The second is after it passed, looking toward the East.  Just Beautiful.

Elizabeth {satsuma photographer}

This young lady stopped by to have a few photos taken of her in her Honor Guard dress for graduation this year. I loved how the sun was reflecting off of the trees with all the green and yellow which made a perfect contrast to her brown dress. I quickly metered the light and voila! A beautifully exposed portrait taken in a backyard. You don’t need to travel to special locations or have lots of equipment to take great portraits. All that’s needed is a little understanding of light and your camera settings.

Terri’s Family {palatka family photographer}

Terri’s family does not get together as a whole group often.  When she said they were all together I knew they had to have a family photo.  Even though it was hot they were troopers!

Sainz Family #2 {palatka family photographer}

I was so excited to actually meet 1 yr old Bella! I have been photographing this family for years now and have heard all about her.  Lauren, Alex, Xavier and Isabella came in for a family shoot in the studio while also here on vacation for a family function.  Lauren even had her mom and grandma come in for a 4 generation of women photo.  I cannot wait to see them again in the fall.

Sainz Family #1 {palatka family photography}

I had a great time meeting Amber, Fransisco, Marcos, Austin and Sebastian from Minot, ND for their photo shoot.  They were visiting Florida for a family celebration and were referred to me by another Sainz Family that I have done shoots with many times before.  These boys were great.  I even got the whole family into one shot together even though that wasn’t the plan.  Everybody was great and I cannot wait to see them next time they come visit Satsuma.
