an Orange Beach Dream Vacation…sounds simple enough…

Sounds like a pretty easy task unless you’ve spent the majority of your life in a hospital fighting a rare disease. Gavin has had severe kidney issues since he was 3 and he has a rare disease. He is in recovery from his last transplant and he has been working hard to make his orange beach dream vacation come true for his family.

“…when life hands you lemons — you make lemonade! ”

So Gavin and Braxton, two eleven year olds, set up a lemonade stand in his small Arkansas home town to try to raise money for this awesome Orange Beach dream vacation. They raised $1100 with the help of the Bryant Police and Fire Department, as well as the local community and depending on how much money they raise Gavin’s family wants to donate to the Nephrotic treatment department at Children’s Hospital.

Marla Johnson and friends at Aristotle in Little Rock reached out to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Alabama Tourism, and Kaiser Realty by Wyndham Vacation Rentals to inform the companies of the Hershbine’s efforts and give life to Gavins Dream Vacation. Their efforts were not in vain. Gavin and his family were given an all expense paid trip to Orange Beach including Vacation Beach Portraits to make their Orange Beach Dream vacation last forever.

As soon as we heard about Gavin and his family we knew we had to be a part of his Dream. We are so glad that Gavin’s dream vacation to Orange Beach will be full of finding seashells and playing in the water and building sand castles. But more than just being out in the sun and salt water… it’s all about where he won’t be…

See you at the Beach!!
Tam & Jay

One way to ensure a Happy Birthday, is to have it during an epic family vacation and to have great family photography to make it last forever.

You would never know that the day of this families beach photography session mother nature was brewing up a cup a foul weather. The storm clouds were gathering over Gulf Shores but the Eagan’s, Garvy’s, & Vogt’s, came to enjoy an epic vacation and celebrate a birthday as well.  They came to Gulf Shores, they conquered their family photography session, and they will have great stories to tell as well as a photograph or two..whew!

This family tradition of getting together and traveling in from the northeast to reconnect with the gulf coast and enjoy their growing clan is impressive to say the least. We hope to see this incredible family again and again!  There’s a little one on the way as well as many more birthdays to be celebrated. Looks like this won’t be the last family vacation beach portrait not by a long shot.

What a great way to remember your family time. The changes from year to year. The addition of little ones and their initiation to the beach. Vacation Beach Portraits are just one way to make your vacation last forever. We hope they keep their family vacation tradition alive for many years to come.

PS,  Happy Birthday ya don’t look a day over 50 😉  Tam & Jay

The Vacation Beach Photography of the Sills family in gulf shores was nothing short of epic.

When Susan called us she wanted to know if we could get her grandchildren to stop long enough to have some vacation beach photography done. Well, now she knows we have a pied piper on staff.

Here is what Susan thought of her vacation beach photography session:

Kudos to Jason and Tammy at Renaissance Portrait Studio for an outstanding beach photo shoot!  Tammy was wonderful with communications before and after the photo shoot!  Jason was a magnificent magician with the children–coaxing normally reluctant photo babies into joyous beach frolicking perfect subjects!  They had great fun!  Jason is an expert photographer and extremely knowledgeable about the lighting techniques, exactly where to place his subjects in relation to the light, and how to modify the natural light with additional lighting to produce wizardly portraits.  Mother Nature was highly cooperative that evening as well–favoring us with a spectacular sunset.

If you are looking for a way to make your vacation last forever. Give us a call at Vacation Beach Portraits, 251 980-6657. I can’t promise pink skies but we can promise great beach photography to make your vacation last forever. These are just a few of our favorite images from this vacation beach photography session.

We are a husband and wife team, and we specialize in fine art family photography.  Sun Shots was created in 2001 with a strong desire to make award winning professional photography art, and we strive to be the premier vendor in our area.

If your family is planning a trip to Orange Beach Alabama, we want to help you guys have a little fun as well.  In the process, we can even help create some awesome art that you will always have to remember just how good of a time you had here in Orange Beach.  Whether you have little tykes or kids in college, we have the professional experience to help you achieve exactly what you are looking for.

With thousands of activities to consume your time on vacation, it is almost a chore to decide what to do at the beach.  One of the most basic and simple activities is having a little fun with your little brother in the sand.  If I was five, and had a two year old little brother, that is exactly what I would do.  Built a sand castle, tear it down, look for sharks teeth, wrestle a little while, who could imagine anything more fun on a break from the real world.

What would you do?  Well these two little tykes did just that at our sunset session last night.  They had so much fun.  Nick is 2 years old and “Ton of Fun”  he truly lived up to it.  Thanks so much fellows for calling us again to be your Orange Beach Family Vacation Photographer.  We really had a fun time with ya’ll! Have a wonderful time while on your vacation in Orange Beach this week.

Give us a call today to find out more, and book your very own family beach portrait session.  You can reach us anytime at (251) 968-2119.
