My parents rented a beautiful condo at the Turquoise Place in Orange Beach, Alabama for our first family beach vacation with Stella. We went in late September, the weather was beautiful and the place was awesome. Unfortunately I got super sick on the ride there in the middle of the night, and it took out each one of my family members day by day while we were there. 🙁
While it wasn’t what we expected to deal with, we made the best of it and I was so happy that the day we had scheduled with a photographer was the day everyone happened to be feeling the best!
I have been obsessing over these pictures from Jana Davis Photography and am SO glad we spent the time and money to have our pictures made with her. Of course I brought my camera on our trip, and we could have gone to the beach at sunset, and I could have set up the settings on my camera and asked a stranger to point and shoot a few photos of all of us.. but there is such a difference in the not only the pictures but the whole experience when you are doing family pictures with a professional.
I value pictures so much, each season a piece of art as they move so quickly. There is so much beauty in the smiles and interactions with those we love, to have beautiful documentation of those sweet fleeting moments is everything to me. I encourage my clients to get in the photos with their kids on a regular basis, because in 20+ years, pictures of you loving your child is truly priceless.
She captured the all of the craziness with a 1 year old and love in our family perfectly and I am beyond thankful for these photos.
