We rented a beach front condo at Madeira Beach for a little “staycation”. We want to make the most of living so close to the beach while we can literally drive 30 minutes to a vacation spot. It was so awesome to wake up and fall asleep hearing ocean waves….ahhhhh. We flew kites at sunset, dug in the sand, swam in the ocean front pool, and did touristy things. Even though my hard working husband had to work 7 out of the 10 days it was still a fabulous break from our day to day routine.
What better of a time to document our little family (and Finn turning 2!) than on our staycation. My friend Nina (Sister Sweet Photography) came by to photograph our family. Taking pictures of a very active 2 year old is a BIG JOB but Nina was so great with him.
I had my hair and makeup done by Natalie Yamanuha with Femme Akoi. She was incredible and made me feel so beautiful. She actually came to our condo to do my hair and makeup. I got to sip on a glass of red wine while watching the beach and getting pampered…it was heaven! I can’t recommend having professional hair and makeup enough for family portraits. It made me feel relaxed, confident, and beautiful which definitely makes for the best pictures. Natalie is amazing and works with a team that do bridal/bridal party hair & makeup here in the Tampa Bay area.
Loved being on the other side of the camera this time…thank you Nina!
