Tybee Island Family Photographers – My thanks to the Addison family for embracing the heat of the day with a dip in the Atlantic and lots of play and laughter. Summer might be almost over, but thanks to a mild fall sessions like this will continue long after the season has past.

 

Ashley & Shaun asked me to be their Tybee Island photographer two years ago when they were getting married on the north beach. It is such an honor to reconnect with them and their extended family during their summer vacation to Tybee this year.

My sessions aren’t preplanned beyond where we meet. The reason for this is that I strive to create an environment that is causal and unforced which hopefully allows my clients to freely be who they are around those they are closest with. If you ask any of them I’m sure they will tell you that I am the first to get into the water, camera and everything. It’s important they know they are truly free to do as they please and I am there willing to take risks with my gear because to me that is part of connecting with them. This doesn’t have to be serious because I have a camera.

Actually, I often tellĀ  people don’t take this hour seriously. I always say that the youngest person there dictates the session & that the big people should take a page from this person and let loose.

 

Ashley contacted me about booking a Tybee family photography session after she learned I was documenting her sister’s wedding at the Tybee Wedding Chapel. It’s nice to have an extra day to get to know a family. It isn’t an opportunity I have often. We ended up adjusting their shoot from a rainy day to a cloudy day, but that didn’t stop them from enjoying their Tybee time. My deepest thank to you all for being yourselves!
