The cold weather in Indiana was enough for Tim to decide to book a family getaway to Florida in just three days. Boca Grande is a special place for Tim and Kilee because she grew up visiting her grandparents who live there. In 2012 they got married on Banyan Street and Tim told me that's where he wanted to take photographs of his young family.
It was a cool Florida day that we met but it still felt great to them. Kilee's vision for her family photos was to capture the grandeur of the banyan trees and keep them light and natural. They were really open to the fact that young children don't always look at or smile for a camera and were happy just to have great pictures of their family, even if they were eating crackers. Their oldest daughter LOVED the camera and claimed she might want to be a model when she grows up (she definitely has the personality for it). I kept them moving and laughing as we worked around garbage cans, cars driving down the street, skateboarders, and stop signs.
At the end of Banyan Street is access to the beach so we finished our session there. The water was high and the waves were rolling in but that didn't stop this group from getting in. Rogue waves crashed against us but it led to more smiles and fun. The temperature dropped as the sun set and it was time for us all to head home just a little bit wet.
Back home in Indiana, they will always have great memories of their Florida vacation with their precious little girls.
