Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my family adventures in life, home, travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Pensacola Beach Shoot

Pensacola Beach Shoot

If you read my blog post recapping our family vacation to Pensacola Beach, FL., you already knew these were coming! Our session with Anneliese was a last minute collaboration that was supposed to consist of our whole crew, however we had local family visiting us at our condo at the same time and little people (cousins) were everywhere. Prying Noah and Kingsley away from that was next to impossible so Nathan and I decided to leave the kids behind and head out on our own.

I've admired Anneliese's work for awhile now (via semi-creepily stalking her Instagram) and was thrilled to finally work with her! Her work is unreal. I drool over all of her posts. Seriously, go see for yourself on her website: www.loveanneliese.com or her Instagram: @loveanneliesephoto.

It can be intimidating trying to be yourself in front of the lens of a photographer you've just met, but she made us so comfortable we were actually able to have fun. Our biggest hurdle was the wind. It was crazy windy and we both have long hair so who knows whose hair was getting stuck in my lipgloss by the end of it. To top it off, I forgot my makeup bag back in Denver so I tried a new waterproof mascara I bought on vacation and I literally could not get it off my eyelid before the shoot. So Nathan and I were on the hot mess express and Anneliese was STILL able to work magic. God bless her entire soul. 

She is local to the Florida panhandle area, so for all of my friends in Perdido Key, Pensacola, Navarre, Destin, Panama City...do yourself a favor and get your engagement photos, wedding photos, or family pics scheduled asap. Heck, make up a reason, I don't care. Just go shoot with her! You won't regret it. That I can guarantee!

Side note: Anneliese also travels for event photography, so whether your wedding is in Hawaii or the Swiss Alps, she's still your girl!

This photo is probably my favorite so I'm going to add a little caption. Nathan is no stranger to tattoos. I think most people know that by now. He went in for a session on his arm one night while we were engaged and came home with my son's name tattooed on his hand. It was so humbling to see how much he loved not only me, but Noah too! Ok, continue on, I just wanted to share why this photo is so special to me! :)
