I just adore this family. They are so easy going, fun and have so much love for their girls. ¬†I started photographing Claire and Samantha’s family last year on their annual vacation to Sanibel. When Zach contacted me to photograph their family again I was honored. It was so great to see them all again. I love being able to see families on their return trips and see their family grow. This time they had a few more family members with so we did a few pictures of all the cousins and grandkids with grandma and grandpa. It was a little breezy but the sun was so beautiful. And to finish out the session, what’s better than suckers! The girls were thrilled to get to have those at the end along with the stickers I always bring for the kiddos. I can’t wait to see them all again next year!

If you have never been to Sanibel Island yet, add it to your list of places to vacation. It’s a must! It’s so beautiful! You definitely won’t go home empty handed! While the beaches are best known for their abundant of sea shells, there are so many activities to do on the island. From paddle boarding and kayaking to renting bikes and cruising all the paved trails all over the island. It is always so lush with greenery and beautiful tropical flowers.

Don’t forget to stop in for some ice cream and lunch at Joey’s! Oh and breakfast is a must at The Island Cow, they have the best vibe and are dog friendly! Lighthouse Beach is also a dog friendly beach, so if you have your fur baby along it’s a great place to let them run and explore!
