Last month I traveled down to Fort Lauderdale to photograph an engagement session for one of my 2019 wedding couples, and while I was there I photographed a family session for my friends who live there now! Stacey and I have been friends for over 20 years, and I’ve photographed her family so much since her daughter Ayva was born back in 2010. Last year the family moved down to Florida, and I was so excited to photograph their first family portraits in their new home! And of course, I love shooting on the beach! It just so happened that my trip overlapped with Stacey’s birthday, so we photographed at Deerfield Beach Pier that afternoon before celebrating at a nearby beachfront restaurant that evening.
