A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to travel up the coast to photograph some family portraits in St. Simons Island, GA. The weather was typical for the southeastern US, with scattered thunderstorms and rain peering the map all the way along the 2 and a half hour drive. When I got to St. Simons I checked the radar one last time and saw more storms moving in, but it looked like we might have a small window of an opportunity to make the shoot happen. I met up with the family at their vacation home, and we made a game plan to head down to the beach close to their house, and shoot until the weather made us stop.
I met the Burch family at the family's beachside condo where they were vacationing on the sands of New Smyrna Beach, FL. I first met the Burchs a couple years ago when I first photographed them, but a few years had passed, and a few new little ones had been added to the family. The family is always a fun group, and was evidenced with the jumping group photos.
Family Portrait photography at Old Fort Park in New Smyrna Beach, FL. I met up with the Hoffman family in the late afternoon to make some great family portraits using the run-ins commonly called 'The Old Fort' as the background. While the real history and origin of th sold stone foundations has been lost to history, it still makes for a neat background location for family portrait photography on location in New Smyrna Beach, FL.

When I first saw the cart path on the back 9 at Hidden Lakes Golf Corse I had this photo in mind. I wanted to capture the image of the bride and groom walking down the path with the Spanish moss wrapped around the trees blowing in the light breeze. This was from a bride and groom portrait session which was right after the short wedding ceremony on the green near the club house. As the guests were enjoying their cocktail hour, I was with the bride and groom getting some great images.

I was visiting my friend Starla from college when we decided to photograph an impromptu Bridal Portrait session on her farm near Charlotte, NC. This was one of my favorite photographs from the session. I like the contrast of the beautiful bride, contrasting to the rustic old metal barn. I used a strong post processing effect on the photo to give it a dreamlike glowing quality to the final photograph.

This is a great shot of a family I made in New Smyrna Beach at Smyrna Dunes Park on the South side of the Ponce deLeon Inlet. I had done several group portraits before this one, but as the fishing boat was heading out to sea, the dad asked if I could get the boat in one of their photos, I shot a few frame, but I liked this one the best.

Every once in a while, I will seem to have a family portrait photo session that seems to never end... Every time I think we have made all the great photos we can with the same people, and the same small section of beach, one of the family members will think up one more combination that they want to have. It doesn't help that there were also about 4 separate family groups as part of the larger family all vacationing in New Smyrna Beach for the summer. But it was all fun, and I got some great shots, here are some of my favorites.
I met the Posey family on the beach at the condo they were renting for their vacation week in New Smyrna Beach, FL. It's always interesting when I meet a family at their condo for a family portrait session on the beach. I will usually draw a crowd of spectators fairly quickly. Luckily though that did not happen this time, I think it was in part due to their condo being on a less populated section of the beach. Anyways, here are some of my favorite images.

Last week I photographed several family portraits along a couple different parts of New Smyrna Beach. This location at Smyrna Dunes Park all the way at the North end of New Smyrna Beach, FL is adjacent to the Ponce DeLeon inlet and in several photos you can see the Ponce Inlet lighthouse in the background. This is my favorite beach to photograph on because I have so many options for photographic backgrounds from the Ocean, Dunes, the rock jetty, and the light house. Sunsets on the water of the inlet also work great. Here are a few of my favorite images from the photo session.
