Tybee Island Beach Photographers – Morning Mini Session

Little Conner brought his momma and grandma to chase him around during our morning mini session. Grandma was quite content to laugh and watch as Kelsey and I tried to keep up running in and out of the ocean and through tide pools. Don’t let this little dude fool you. He is fast and definitely made us earn our breakfast. I always love the intimacy of two for a photo session and these two certainly gave me the honor of documenting many priceless moments during our brief time together. Thank you guys!

I love collaborating with people to make sure they get the best experience and everything they are hoping for in a session. Jon didn’t want to just surprise Alex by proposing to her on the beach with a professional photographer to provide Tybee Island engagement photography. He also wanted to include their parents so they could share in the moment as well.

Jon and I discussed all the details which included telling a white lie to Alex earlier in the day that their parents were leaving. The plan  was to then have both sets of parents arrive early and sit on a swing out of eyesight from the crossover that Alex and Jon would walk out on just before he proposed. Jon would text them and me as well when they were walking out.

It all went really well considering we had so many moving parts to this proposal. Alex would later say that she thought she saw a man in the distance that looked like her father, but then thought that couldn’t be since he had left. The best part is the raw emotion after a proposal. I don’t like to waste too much time introducing myself and like to get straight back to the couple playing and celebrating while it still feels surreal for them.

Jon and Alex have very visual personalities and were such a pleasure to work with. They were not only comfortable enough to play fight and be who they are in front of the camera, they even teased and joked with me as you’ll see. Thank you both for being yourselves and having fun.

There are many Tybee Island family photographers to choose from so I am always very honored when a family goes out of their way to support my work. April, Caleb and little Wylie Jewell are one of those families. April found me on Instagram and truly gets and appreciates my work. This, to any creative, is priceless. When a client just shows up and says, “Just tell us where to go or what you’d like us to do.” and when they trust you and your process implicitly then you can really focus on being creative and making images you didn’t even know would happen.

My morning spent with these three unbelievably adorable people was filled with trading kisses for seashells, exploring tide pools and knocking on ghost crab holes to see if anybody is home. I’m so glad you three had such perfect conditions for your session. I am beyond grateful for your friendship and support and am humbled by the love you expressed for each other while in front of my camera. Thank you.
