It’s A Busy Time on Amelia Island | Fine Art Portraiture

Hi All,
I have been remiss in my blog, but wanted to let you know I am still here. I am just coming off the busiest summer ever, since beginning my business almost 15 years ago. I am blessed to live near the Ritz Carlton and the Omni on the island, and both of those resorts have been hopping this year. When they are busy, I am busy. They are top notch resorts and I love shooting at both. They each have different offerings, but amazing backdrops for photography sessions. And, then, of course, the island itself is loaded with many other awesome locations for shooting, including the quaint little town of Fernandina Beach.

One of my favorite spots to shoot, located just near Amelia –just an island away, and across the south end bridge–is Big Talbot Island State Park, with its many old tree trunks that grace its shoreline. It is an awesome place to shoot and many families and couples choose that location.

Most of the summer has been consumed by family beach sessions. I do specialize in them, it seems. That is what happens when a photographer lives at the beach. 🙂 Not a bad thing, at all. I love photographing families of all ages, but those little ones on the beach–there is just nothing like it. I have photographed so many that it is normal for me to get the traditional beach portraits, of course, but I love looking for unique and creative images to capture in each and every session, so each family will have that unique piece that is just for them.

Amelia continues to be an ideal location for destination weddings, too. And, I photograph many of those and am thrilled to do so. I love all the beauty of weddings and love documenting the day as it unfolds. It is such a joyful time and there is never a dull moment. Creativity at its best happens on wedding days. And, I am always looking for something new I have not captured before. I had two very large weddings in August, and will share some images soon. They were both gorgeous!

Meanwhile, I thought I’d share a few images from a few recent sessions on the beach.

Thanks, for dropping by. Please share as you like.
