Florida Family Vacation Beach Session - Fort Pierce Family Photographer

Jen contacted me one chilly spring day from her home up in New England looking for a photographer to do a family session during their vacation here in Florida.

There’s a saying around here: I live where you vacation. And it’s true! I can’t tell you how many sessions I’ve done for folks visiting the area. And what a treat it is for the families. Just playing for an hour, connecting, and being present with each other. No phones or itinerary except to enjoy the moment. And then, when they are back home and still sun kissed from Florida, they receive a carefully edited collection of photos from their vacation, perfect for a photo book or a beautiful canvas to hang on the wall.

Think back to your last family vacation.

How many awesome photos you got of your family all together without phones? Smiling. Having fun. A few? One?

“Of course I’d love to document your family on your vacation! I’m so happy you found me”

Little did I know how true those words were.

After we got chatting I learned that Jen was a photographer herself and a volunteer photographer for Preemie Prints. She had fallen in love with this non-profit that gifts free sessions for NICU babies either in the NICU or sometime before their first birthday… because her twins were NICU grads themselves. <3

After her session I checked to see if anyone volunteers for Preemie Prints here on the Treasure Coast. Nope! There is a need for this area to be serviced and I took the call. Thanks to Jen, I am now a Preemie Prints Volunteer myself. I am so grateful to be able to serve families with preemies all along the Treasure Coast with my time and talents.

I had a blast getting to know Jen and her family. Watching the kids’ eyes widen with awe as they took in sea turtle nests, seaweed, and broken sand dollars (worth a quarter each, right?). And documenting their tiny adventure alongside the Atlantic.

And I think they had a little fun too!

Summer Session Special - Treasure coast family photographer

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.

2018 summer session special - ebb and flow photography

 

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. 

Here's why:

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.

This year I'm feeling extra sentimental and I am offering a super duper awesome discount to families that want to make and to keep memories like this. $100 off my standard session price for all session dates booked between the first day of summer and Labor Day weekend (September 3rd, 2018). Spaces are limited so click below to reserve your date!

Beautiful Blues at the Beach

Hello, beautiful blues.

This was the second half of a fun afternoon with a gorgeous family. Sometimes sessions like this make me wonder if this should really be called work. I mean, going to the beach and chasing kids with a camera? And it didn't hurt that the weather was PERFECT.
