Panama City Beach Fitness Photoshoot

Be Fearlessly Authentic.

Where do I even begin talking about our fabulous PCB fitness and boudoir photoshoot? This woman is fierce. she knows exactly who she is, what she wants, and isn't afraid to go after it. She is about to launch some amazing things, and I'm so proud of her already! she runs a nutrition company and kicks butt. Her nutrition company uses local vendors and works closely with the clients to give their body exactly what it needs to start healing. I agree with her completely how much a good diet (not saying don't have that burger.. but a good balance) can heal more than we even know. 

She brought some fun outfits for our beach shoot, and every one was perfect! I also can't wait to tell you about Stacy Alderson (makeup and hair extraordinaire) couldn't have done it without her, she helped the entire shoot and went way above what I expected, and I think all three of our sarcastic comments made for such a fun night together. You should definitely follow both of the fabulous women I had the opportunity of working with, I'll leave their social media links below the last photo! can't wait till I can work with them again! 

here's a few faves ;) 

" May my heart be brave, my mind fierce, and my spirit free."

Ladies, a gentle reminder about boudoir and beach photos. yes this woman is absolutely stunning, there's no denying it. But I believe EVERY woman is beautiful, with her story, and who she is to her core. So if you're not sure if you should get the session, I encourage you to try it out. I'm there to make you feel great and show off the assets you love and hopefully with a lot of laughter, maybe some tears, and heart to heart- just heal some small parts and see you as the fabulous woman you are.

He's here. Lindsey and Dan had their precious baby boy just earlier this week, and I couldn't be more excited, except when I'll get to squish and kiss on him and tell him how wonderful his mommy is. 

I have known Lindsey for 12 years. From our first day of college, countless laughs, teachable moments, to marrying the man of her dreams, and she's going to be such an incredible mom. (Not to leave out Dan, he's pretty great too!;) 

These two got married on a Florida beach only a few years ago, and did a trash the dress shoot in the very dress she wore here. Such special moments and places, and I'm so glad I've been able to be a part of those. 

Here's a few favorites from our sunset session just down the road from my house.

Living in Panama City Beach, Florida and being able to travel to Minnesota in the summer gives me the best of the beach and the country. Each place with its own beauty to be photographed and appreciated. The short trip in may  back to my hometown was no different. 

You know those people. ones you're drawn to, instantly feel at ease with, and their beautiful heart can be seen from afar? This is Courtney. To say this woman is beautiful is an understatement. this was our first meeting, and she completely shines inside out. Warmth and love, tons of laughter and unapologetically herself. I adored her immediately. Then she ended it with giving me homemade strawberry rhubarb jam, so let's just say the adoration was even more so! she rocked this red dress that was in perfect contrast with her farm land. we talked and giggled the entire time, and her husband even said he could hear us while he was hunting. 

I love photographing women, and always hope a little time opening up, hearing their story, and helping them see beauty in themselves will heal parts of their heart. But It heals me too being around their infectious laughs and genuine souls. Here's a few favorites from our session on a Minnesota farm.

Pier Park Panama city beach- Tionna

I'm still new to Panama City Beach, but more than loved the foggy morning we had for our beach shoot! 

I keep coming back to these quotes after photographing women on the beach. They're about being wild and free, brave and good. How we as women can be all of these at once. we all feel free in different places. I feel serenity and peace yet wild and messy and strong at the beach. I'm learning what I looks like to be free and know exactly who I am down to the core, every day learning more. Embracing all of that wonderful wild we have as women, and how it's vastly different than men's wild. I love it. You might not know where your wild went, but it's those urges you have and gave into as a little girl. Running on the beach, diving head first into a project that might not come out how you envision, owning that messy bun and feeling beautiful any way, photographs to show off a side you tend to keep locked up. For me, I have those wild urges and often. I jump on the bed in spurts, randomly run circles around people at the beach, let my hair be as crazy as it can be, chase far off dreams and never being ashamed of it. I wear the most obnoxious sunglasses I can find, and sing as loudly as I can with loved ones. I'm not saying be just crazy, don't be mature when you need to be, and don't take responsibility, but I am saying what happened to make us stop doing the things that filled our hearts a little? Before we felt we had to act a certain way, and be someone we never thought we would have to be. I always want to be a woman with class, but I also want to be one that is happy and never takes for granted a moment in this beautiful life.  Take time for spurts of pure joy and embrace your wild and free and unapologetically yourself. 

the more I feel connected with all that I am, the more in comes out in my photography, something more well.. wild.. Tionna was absolutely lovely to work with. She was up for any ideas, and even put up with the waves that harshly crashed into her. she did amazing and I hope we can work together in the future. Here's a few wild and free photos. and Tionna's instagram link is below, so don't forget to follow her!

Flower Mound, Texas Wedding at the Aristide- Veronica and Brian

The women arrive early. They place their gowns, shoes, and flowers in the window light and admire the pieces as they get their hair and makeup done. i noticed brides tend to say they’re nervous but when they put on their dress they picked out so carefully, they stand with the utmost confidence. They have never felt so beautiful, and know soon they get to see the man who will not be able to take his eyes off her for the entirety of the day. the one of whom they thought of when they picked out the perfect dress and knew he’d love it.  

The men trickle in slowly, usually with a few drinks, and help one another with ties and finding the last minute details that get misplaced if only for a minute. Groom says he’s not nervous really, but you can always tell there’s a nervous anticipation to see the love of his life. To see the dress and details she’s picked out for him to finally see. He’s anxious to see her walk down the aisle, and the day is here where she’s going to be beaming with outward and inward beauty. I always hope for the groom to tear up which always gets the entire room filled with tears too. It’s one of the most beautiful things to witness. 

Veronica and Brian’s Texas wedding at the Aristide was flawless. A group of close friends and family, soft pink hues in the decor, happy tears, and lots of laughter on the dance floor.
