  1. 30A Thursday: Places to Eat on 30A

    Seaside, Florida

    I often get emails from clients asking me about family friendly places to eat on 30A while they’re visiting, so I figured I’d spotlight one of my favorite family friendly places for lunch. If you haven’t ever been to Seaside, Florida put it on your bucket list right now. It’s such a quaint little town right in the middle of our popular little beach area in Santa Rosa Beach known as 30A. My favorite spot to eat in Seaside is right on their Airstream Row. I’m such a sucker for airstreams so for me this spot is just a little bit magical. If you go at dusk these little restaurants are all lit up with twinkle lights which totally adds to that magic.  They have several delicious options to choose from so you’re bound to find something for those picky eaters in your life. I personally love the grilled cheese airstream, Meltdown on 30A. They have a goat cheese and pancetta grilled cheese which is to die for. Seriously. Seaside also boasts an amazing hotdog airstream with equally delicious dogs called Wild Bill’s Beach Dogs. It’s mouthwatering. As you can see below, this is a great little spot to visit with your family. The family below chose the yummy Wild Bill’s Beach Dogs for their dinner. They ended with a delightful little snow cone from Frostbites. Sounds like a perfect little evening right? It is!

  2. Scenic Hwy 30A Photography Sessions: Seagrove Beach

    Seagrove, Florida

    Seagrove is one of my favorite areas for Scenic Hwy 30A photography sessions. It’s right outside of Seaside and feels like one of the more authentic little beach towns that sit along the gorgeous beaches on the gulf of Mexico. I met this family at the cutest little beach house that overlooked the gorgeous Emerald waters. I was introduced to a sweet little boy by the name of Joshua. Joshua is my brother’s name so instantly I felt at home with this family. Joshua was mesmerized by the sand and the little pieces of driftwood that washed ashore during our session. The light was so beautiful (I mean when is it not?) and we played until the light dipped below the horizon. That sunset gave us the most gorgeous light and gorgeous pink clouds. I’m such a sucker for anything pink so of course I’m absolutely obsessed with each of these images. They are absolutely perfect. You can see for yourself below!

    And for my photographer friends that may be wondering these images were shot with my Canon 5d MK IV and my Canon 1DX.  The lenses I used were my 85mm 1.8 and my 24mm 1.4!  I shoot with both bodies simultaneously because I’m a glutton for punishment. ;) HAHA! Enjoy and thanks for reading!!

  3. Dune fun: Family Photography Session

    Grayton Beach, Florida

    I had so much fun on this family photography session. My clients arrived and they looked gorgeous! They had the sweetest little boy! He is two and speaks so well! I absolutely love this age. Those little boy curls and his lovely shade of blonde hair had me swooning! We met at Grayton Beach with the notion of not actually shooting at the beach, haha. We played on the beautiful trails near the Dune lakes and we had a blast. Check them out!
