Family Portraits on the Beach

Hi there, I’m Mary Beth photographer of couples and families based in northwest Florida.
During the summer months, we see a massive influx of families enjoying their beach vacations booking photo sessions to document their time.

These are always some of my favorite sessions, because for many of these families, their children have never seen the beach before! There are a few places in the world that offer such a magic.

Being based in Northwest Florida lends it’s own magic as well, I spend a lot of time working in the state parks, because they offer the most unobstructed beach experience. There’s fewer distractions, and you get to see what the beach used to be like before all the condos were built. Then you pair pristine coast with the natural greens that drift along the landscape, that is an entirely different place in the world.

I was scrolling on my phone before bed the other night (bad I know 🤣) when I saw an article that had “your favorite toys from the 90s“ so of course Steven and I were like YES! As we were scrolling, the nostalgia we were feeling just from those photographs was insane. Too many of the families I work with don’t have enough photos that document their stories.

We get busy, we forget, it gets bumped down on our list of priorities. And why? Doesn’t everyone like going back to look at old photos? I know a ton of people that check their Facebook memories every day. 

So hit the beach. Take the photos. Print them out. Love them forever. 

Tell your family your story is worth documenting.
