Pass-a-Grille Beach Family Photo Shoot

One of the last things I wanted to do before we left Florida was do some family photos on the beach. I wanted to have at least one fun beach session and I just love family pictures. We got a very talented friend of ours to help me out. I love to take pictures but rarely end up in my own. I end up doing alot of tripod set up sessions which has resulted in some really good pictures but is hard to capture cute non-posed pictures.

The sunset cooperated perfectly. (even though we were nervous it was going to keep raining)Β  It was super hot and we were pretty sweaty out there haha. It ended up more than just perfect, it was just what we all needed to put the busyness of life in perspective. Nature and the outdoors of all types has always been my personal sanctuary.

I can’t decide which of the next two I like better… the washed out one or the silhouette one.IMG_8705-2IMG_8705-3IMG_8711-2Haha πŸ˜€IMG_8721-2^The funny one.^

The sky was just on fire at the end! We could not believe how beautiful it was. Such an awesome amazing sight. I love the picture of our good friends. I can’t decide if I like the silhouette style or the lightened one where I can see their faces better so I posted both of them.

We are busy with home renovations here. I can’t wait to have our floors done. They should be just in time for Thanksgiving which I am hosting. I’ve ordered our turkey and put up decorations but thats about it. I have got to get working on everything else now. Yay for Turkey Day! πŸ™‚ I hope you all are getting into all the Holiday spirit too. Until next week, XOXO.

 

Pass A Grille Beach

We took a little beach day with some friends to Pass A Grille BeachΒ in St. Petersburg Florida. We had been trying to do a beach day for 3 weeks but it kept getting rained out! I was so happy we finally got to make it happen. The boys had a blast at the beach and the weather was gorgeous.Β wavesfamilyfamily2jakeliamliam2liam4beachgroup3

It was a wonderful beautiful beach and even had cute little shops and restaurants across the street from the beach. We liked it so much that I made everyone come back to do some family beach pics. More to come on those pictures later. (They turned out sooo good!) I used the GoPro in the ocean taking these pictures. I have really been having fun playing around with the GoPro.

Hope everyone is enjoying the last little bit of summer… I know I cannot wait for some fall fun this year! Until next week XOXO.
