Katie and I met when we trained for our first marathon together with Orlando’s Track Shack running program. You learn a lot about people when you run with them at 4am (I wish I was kidding about the time!) We’ve logged many miles together and I’ve had the pleasure of seeing her get engaged, then married to Robin. In the next exciting chapter, they’re expecting a little girl, Londyn Grace, and I was thrilled to capture these maternity photos for them at Playalinda Beach.
Kodi and Hollynn’s proposal was a real family affair. When I arrived at Smyrna Dunes Park, three of his cousins were there and had set up this gorgeous scene! After a lovely dinner, Kodi brought his beach-loving bride-to-be here and of course she said yes! Get ready for way too many images of this magic moment!
How do Floridians spend Christmas Eve? This year 837 of them donned Santa gear and surfed at Cocoa Beach while several thousand more looked on. The annual Surfing Santas event started in 2009 as a family affair and grew each year as the family was joined by additional Santas, reindeer, and elves. While the waves this year were weak, the holiday spirit was not and the lively beach party was an entertaining way to spend the morning.
Merry Christmas, friends!
You might remember Melissa + Tim from their wedding back in October. After the craziness of the holidays was done and the weather warmed up, we were finally able to get together at Playalinda Beach in Titusville for the beautiful beachy trash the dress. It was hot, windy, and the love bugs that were guests at their wedding ceremony made a command performance while were shooting at the beach, but Melissa + Tim were troopers and we created some lovely images!
