My family and I just got back from a much needed vacation! It has become a tradition to go to Gulf Shores, AL each year for a week. This year there were 33 family members total; 13 of which were children and 9 of the children were under the age of 7! We had such a great time and the weather was perfect. I always take my camera and we were able to get some great pictures on the beach. Beach photos are so much fun. I love taking photos on the beach because of the relaxed atmosphere and the beautiful scenery. Here is a glimpse of the Gardner family beach portrait session…stay tuned for some of the others next week.
