Last summer Lindsey had the opportunity to shoot a 90 minute family beach photo “sunset session” with the Beckett family in Watercolor, FL. As I sit staring at their collection all I can do is smile. From start to finish, the Becketts were a delight. Everything about these people and their photos just makes me happy. I decided I wanted to understand WHY they make me so happy so I took some time to really dig down into the specifics, and I think I finally figured it out.
#1. Magic. Some of you may not fully understand this answer but, no matter what, this collection can never be recreated because something aligned that day letting the magic happen.
#2. The Beckett’s were comfortable being themselves. It’s very clear in these photos their home is filled with love… support doesn’t come at a price and confidence is encouraged. We work hard in every shoot to help our clients relax and have fun. These photos are a perfect example of why.
#3. Timing. Lindsey moved through the beautiful light mother earth gave her effortlessly (or so it seems). Lighting isn’t always the most cooperative thing, even in the sunshine state, because as you all know… Mother Earth can often be a fickle one.
#4. Variety. Some of the photos are traditional poses, while others look completely candid in that “too good to be true” kind of way. (The kind of candid shot some magazines would spend a half a day trying to create!) Plus, Lindsey capitalized on ALL of their surroundings – moving from their beach house, to the lush greens of 30A, and eventually onto the beach we’re known for here in Destin and 30A. Oh, I can’t leave out having both black & white photos mixed in with color. This is quickly becoming a favorite twist on a portrait collection. (Another great example can be found here.)
#5. The Heirloom Album. The Becketts loved their photographs so much, that they allowed us to take them ‘out of the computer’ and onto the pages of one of our carefully crafted Heirloom Albums. A testament to how happy these photos make them (and sitting down with a portrait album on your lap to relive memories does so in a way that no computer ever can)!
We hope looking through their photos makes you happy. We work hard to find the magic in every family and let that lead the way to a timeless photography collection.
