If you haven't been to Anna Maria Island I'm hoping these images persuade you to make plans to go! I have lots of recommendations and I am always happy to talk about it! While vacationing at the amazing Lizzie Lu Resort for a week before school started, my parents came to visit and I did an afternoon / evening shoot with them and the kids. We spent the afternoon on the beach where I captured the fun we have in the sand and in the water. After a break for dinner and clean-up at the house we headed out for some more images just before sunset. The golden light was perfect for a game of tag which had the kids laughing like crazy. I am thrilled to have these images of my kids playing, laughing and enjoying life with their grandparents. And they are too!
