It has taken me longer than planned to start sharing the beach photos from our time last week in Gulf Shores. I have been so excited to share, but it has also taken a little while to get back in the groove, out of vacation mode, and tie up some loose ends from before the trip. I am sharing the Jackson family first, though they were not the first family I photographed, they were the reason we ended up in Gulf Shores. I ran into Gretchen a few months ago in Target and we started talking about her family's upcoming beach trip and planning photos for their time in Gulf Shores. I was intrigued and among other coincidences their trip was on a week that Peter and I had already set aside as a family vacation, but without any specific plans.
So we made a plan and turned our family vacation into a working vacation. That is if you can call playing in the sand and water with my camera and some awesome families working.
I had such a great time with this gorgeous family. I have been wanting to photograph them for years. In fact I photographed their older son Morgan about three years ago and it was my very first blog post here.
