While it may have been my first time walking these particular shores, it was not the first time for my client. No, they’ve walked these shores many times. Here on vacation, this family contacted me about getting their family pictures done on a beach that they’ve grown very fond of and shared many memories on. As we walked the resort grounds, they pointed out the spot where they got married, and then the spot where they renewed their vows. They even pointed out a spot where they watched an armadillo race across the lawn during their reception. They told me of how they came back to this place to renew their vows because they wanted to share the joy of their wedding day with their two boys, and how they continue to visit these waters because they feel a special connection to them. As the rain clouds moved in and we wrapped up our session, I could feel the love they had for this place and I could see why. I hope when they look at these pictures, they see what I saw.
