Family Photos 2017
Family Photos! Its a love-and-hate relationship when that word is mentioned. I decided I needed the love part to work its way out of that relationship and come forth.
Last year has come to a close and we are already almost three months into a new year. I promised myself that I would do a better job at taking more photos with my husband, myself in the photos, and with the family.
Yes… we did it. We took the family photos. ON. THE. BEACH. What better place to have family photos. The beach goes on for miles and miles down the A1A. We choose a beach in Satellite Beach called Hightower Beach. As we were driving their I couldn’t but help mention the movie Police Academy. Have you seen it? If not… rent it! Its hilarious! Anyways…any beach along the coast….you will be flying high in the Space Coast.
Right now, we love living here in Indian Harbor Beach. It is a quiet and peaceful little town. The beach is within walking distance and boy oh boy…. does it call to me every day. I love being near a beach.
As most of you know Nathan my husband was gone for 2 ½ months. He was able to become a crew member on a boat being delivered from South Africa to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. After he got home the idea of really making it happen to have family photos hit hard. That is when we came across the photographer Kristin and we scheduled our family photos.

Nathan and I decided we really wanted to keep our family pictures simple. We did not rush out to buy all new outfits for the girls. We did not want too bling up the photos with much. We wanted to capture a simple family photo. The beach as our background we knew we couldn’t go wrong.
The funny thing was is we took one afternoon and rummaged around the girls closets and our closets to find the color scheme we wanted and this is what we came up with. The only shirt we had to buy was his.
I really missed Nathan while he was gone for those long winter months. I am grateful for each day we get to spend together now. I just love having his arms around me. It calms my fears and quiets my anxieties. Our marriage is not perfect… but we do love each other with all of our hearts. We are trying every day to just be patient with each other, communicate better, and don’t let our opinions out weight the truth. We want our marriage to Be Healthy and Happy. It takes work. And we are working at it…. every single day.
