Hi. My name is Cory and I love the ocean. I love the way the waves dance on the shore, the smell of salt spray as you get closer and closer on your drive there, when you are swimming (or surfing, but that's still on my bucket list) and feel the swell rise below you and lift you up, the joy I see it bring in others when they are there.
And, believe it or not, I disliked the heat of summer almost my entire life. That is, until I moved to Florida 4 years ago. Yes, seriously. I decided to embrace the humid and hot since I was transplanted to a place that was practically summer year round. Why fight it?
My solution? Return to sentence number two above.
Bu it's summer, you think. It's hot. Who would want to get family photos done and stand around in the sweltering heat? Not me. But I'm not a stand-around-in-the-heat kinda gal, and definitely not that kind of photographer. I'm playful and want to jump and run and float in the sea. And I bet your kids (and maybe you) are too. And guess what? Photographing families (and families to be) at the beach is one of my favorite things to do.
I get to capture you at the beginning of the session, fresh and pressed. Hmm. This is great. You're getting your holiday portraits done early so you're ahead of the game. And then we progress down the beach for a few more, getting a few splashes on our toes. Hmm, these would be great on the wall in the living room... maybe some along the staircase or even the hallway. And then a few more photos where the waves are starting to get us all a little bit more. So much fun, jumping and splashing and searching for shark teeth and chasing the waves. After a little bit, the tiny ones are getting tired and need to be carried up the beach before cleaning off. Everyone is rejuvenated by the fun and relaxed by the sea. It's special and a little dreamy. On the way home, everyone is wearing an almost indistinguishable smile. Maybe the kids fall asleep. You didn't know it when you woke up this morning, but these are the days you are most grateful for. These are the days you want to remember. And when you look back on this day, flipping page after page in the album you decided to order, you see the connections and love so much clearer than you did when you made the memories in the first place. You hold it up to your heart and hold it like it was just yesterday.
Let me help you preserve this joy for you.
