It is time, again, for my two-week blog. Wait! That was supposed to be one-week blog. Did anyone see a week run past? I seemed to have lost one. Oh, I know what happened. I do remember taking a few days off, for a family reunion. That’s right. That’s where that week went. I took off for some much needed family time.
We hosted our ‘every two years’ Stevens family reunion over Labor Day weekend. We had such a great time catching up with the ones who were able to come. We even had some of the Stevens from our Northern bunch of cousins join us. It was wonderful to have them come from Minnesota and Canada to spend some time with these Southern Stevens. We swam in the pool, played volleyball and badminton (in the pool), and spent some time at the beach. (Well, some did). We ate and at some more. We talked, played with the kids and played with the dogs. And, we talked. Did I mention that? Imagine a house full (25) of people talking. It was great and good conversations. We had s’mores in the outside fire pit. It didn’t even matter that it was about 85 degrees outside; it was still fun and yummy!
While all that was going on, I didn’t have any photo sessions or weddings, but I did get behind, a tad, on my editing. It is very hard for me to do that, but I figured most folks (in fact, all of my clients) would understand.
So…. I am back at it. Today, I am sharing some images from a returning client from the great state of Texas. I shot these at the end of August. This mom and daughter are so much fun, and my assistant, Jensen Bell of Jensen Bell Photography (yes, my son) and I captured some wonderful images for them.
We met them at the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island, where they were staying and began our shoot, on the lawn. From there we moved to the beach and continued. What fun! Because Jensen was with me, he was able to tote my carousel horse along, and the little one took right to it, as the reader will see in the fun images. Then, to top it off, we added a special little treat at the end, and continued shooting. The sky was very overcast that day, and the beach offered a brisk breeze, which was just perfect for this session.
Enjoy–and please share, as you like. If you are heading to Amelia Island, look me up. I’d love to work with you and your family. I also travel, when needed, so give me a call if you like my style. Have a great day!
At the beginning, the little one started off a tad shy, but that was then….
