Family Photography Session in Destin Florida ~ Henderson Beach
This was such a fun family photography session in Destin! This session took place at Henderson Beach in Destin, Florida. When Crystalynn contacted me for a session my auto reply replied telling her that I was on maternity leave. It had been 5 weeks since I had my baby and I was itching to get back to work, so I decided to come back from my maternity leave early. She told me all of her ideas and for what she wanted and I was instantly inspired. For one of the pictures she wanted me to capture all I could envision was tons of light and laughter. Well, the weather wanted to be moody and we ended up having to reschedule our session. The day we had rescheduled for was equally as moody, but I begged to press on. I’m so glad that we were able to have our session on this particular evening. The colors were gorgeous and the water looked so ethereal. I’m seriously in love with this whole session.
And I thought it would be fun to share a little bit about this session from Crystalynn herself:
“I started looking for photographers a week before we left for vacation. I didn’t give myself much time, but I knew I wanted to have family photos taken on the beach with my husband, mom and two kids. I also knew I needed someone who would work well with VERY active children. After asking a couple photographers that I knew personally and coming up with nothing, I ended up Google-ing Destin photographers. I sent out inquiries to several, but when I found Nichole’s page I knew she was the one! The style of her art was just absolutely amazing! It was EXACTLY what I had envisioned in my head. When I got her message saying she was on maternity leave I was bummed. I was on the verge of just settling for another photographer because I was running out of time, but then I got the message! She was coming back early from maternity leave and was able to do the session! I WAS SO EXCITED! I spoke with her several times before we even left for Florida and she was absolutely wonderful to work with.
After rescheduling one time due to weather (FL weather is VERY unpredictable) We finally did it! (Actually we were trying to decide on whether or not to reschedule again.) I spoke with Nichole SEVERAL times that evening contemplating what to do. We ended up going ahead with the session. I was nervous that the weather the next day would have been better, but she insisted that if the next evening was nicer, then we would shoot again. I thought that was absolutely wonderful of her to offer especially after having a baby mere weeks ago.
We met, shot, and it was WONDERFUL!!! The experience was EXACTLY what I wanted it to be. The lighting was BEAUTIFUL, and she was fabulous with my kids. She was a very ‘hands-on’ photographer getting in the water, and getting sandy with the rest of us! I would absolutely work with her again, and– as a matter of fact, I look forward to the next time! Thank you so much for capturing these amazing moments of my family!”
Thank you Crystalynn! You all are awesome. xo :)
