At the beach | Saint Augustine child photographer

I met this beautiful eleven-year-old girl in St. Augustine for beach portraits. She’s so full of spirit, and it was a pleasure to work with her and her mother.

Sisters | Saint Augustine family photographer

These sisters are charming, and it’s easy to see how close they are. This fun family was vacationing in Saint Augustine, and it was a pleasure to meet them for a mini session and take their beach portraits.

During their vacation in Saint Augustine, this fun family wanted beach portraits to help remember their time together in Florida. We enjoyed lovely sunset colors, perfect for this adorable little girl.

Family Reunion at the Beach | Saint Augustine family photographer

This family was vacationing in Saint Augustine and asked for me help them record memories of their time together. Most of the family traveled all the way from England, so their time together was extra special.

It was so sweet to see this baby playing with her grandmother.

These brothers may be grown now, but they still know how to make each other laugh.

This family lives here in the States and arranged the portrait session for their visiting relatives. Saint Augustine with its beach and historic charm was perfect for the family reunion.

Boys | Saint Augustine family photographer

I’m still catching up on holiday portraits from last year, and this next session features a family I’ve photographed for four years now. Her boys are so full of life and ready to shine in front of the camera. I look forward to taking their portraits; I always have so much fun.

We went to St. Augustine for these pictures, and I feel so lucky to be near such a lovely, historic city. Not only does it offer so much character with its cobblestone streets, coquina walls, and inviting archways, but it’s also so easy to take the same family multiple times to the historic district and still find plenty of variety for backdrops.

My favorite pictures are often the ones where children are just being their silly selves. 

The boys each offer their own take on the statue…

It’s easy to tell how close these brothers are.

The youngest brother reminds me so much of own younger daughter. Not only does he have an amazing smile, but he’s a master of the relaxed, serious expression that works so well in portraits.

And the older brother has a pretty amazing smile, too…

They always know how to make each other laugh.

St. Augustine has such beautiful decorations for the holidays. It’s a great spot to go to for Christmas portraits.
