Tybee Island visitors and residents have given me four beautiful years of experiences now. Thank you all, especially my clients, for making such a lifestyle possible and more importantly for trusting me with documenting your lives. At the end of every day, whether with my sand in my shoes or walking home amidst live oaks draped with backlit Spanish moss, I am grateful to have such beautiful places like Tybee Island and Savannah to call my home as well as my office. Just a selection of those moments throughout 2014 are posted below.

I am full of energy at just the thought of what 2015 holds. I’m excited to meet many new clients and to have the always humbling honor of seeing some clients visit the area once again. There are many things to consider when planning your wedding, family vacation or engagement like locations, best light and tides, so please feel free to reach me if you have any questions. That’s why I’m here and I’m greatly looking forward to meeting and working with you all.

Nature Photography Fort Pulaski National Monument:

This past Spring I had the honor of exhibiting my nature photography of Fort Pulaski National Monument, or rather all of Cockspur Island. The images were made mostly around sunrise or the last few hours before as well as during sunset between April and June of 2013. I visited almost everyday sometimes twice a day. On occasion I would spend as many as five hours a day chasing light, getting to know the grazing habits of the deer, the more hidden coyote and getting to know the many looks of the island itself.

Visiting everyday allowed me the opportunity to see so many variations of tides, weather and unique circumstances, like the supermoon at dawn as seen in the second image. I continue to visit, and of course, the island continues to change. Many of these photos could not be made again in part or whole. It gives me a great respect for this beautiful place I call home.

Prints framed and unframed are available with a portion of all sales go to Fort Pulaski National Monument.

The Johnson family chose a morning session where there was a slight chill when we arrived in the parking lot, but the sun warmed everyone quickly when we arrived at the ocean’s edge. I always love when the adults are willing to not take themselves seriously and just focus on making the little ones laugh. This session was gifted with beautiful light, a practically empty beach, many joyful moments and some reflective ones too. My favorite type of session. Nothing I love more than returning home with sand and waterlogged shoes. My deepest thanks to you all for being casual and allowing me the honor of sharing a morning on Tybee Island with your family.
