I was ecstatic when Shannon contacted me with her idea of shooting a day in the life session while they were on vacation in St Pete at the Postcard Inn and this session no doubt ranks in my most favorite sessions ever! I searched and search for ideas online for “lifestyle sessions while vacationing”….nothing. We were on our own and that was more than fine by me. I knew it was going to be an awesome night when Shannon told me she wasn’t married to the idea of posed pictures on the beach-maybe just finishing up with a nightly swim in the pool. I was all in! I felt like she gave me my freedom and she already had total trust in me. We let the kids just horse around and have fun in the hotel room-read books, play ball and jump on the bed. Then we explored the hotel a bit to grab a few family photos while the kids played more naturally and of course finished with a dip in the pool. Thank you Shannon (and Min) for trusting me and allowing me to follow you around on vacation for a few hours. Relaxing with family is a cherished time and bringing in a stranger with a camera isn’t always someone’s first choice-you saw the memories and moments that hadn’t happened yet.
