Ahh yes sometimes it is just so nice to sit in the hot sun (or under the umbrella ) & listening to rolling waves. . . .

Coastal Life- For Now or Forever? { A Visit From My Brother }

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014

It’s hard for me to imagine not living within a short drivable distance to the coast. For the past 7 years I have lived coastal.  But I have slowly been moving away. And by slowly I mean 2.5 blocks to 1 mile to now a 25 min drive. It’s so hard for me to stay in the same place for too long.  Maybe I suffer from  wanderlust. (Ok I know I suffer from wanderlust.)  I have a hard time staying put. I find a new place. I like it. I move there. Currently I live in the Florida panhandle.  I will be honest, I do not love Florida. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great place to visit. And there are some really exciting places to hang out – (umm Miami ~ Key West – yes please)!  But I don’t live there. I kinda live in an area that’s let’s say slower pace & more secluded from the city life I prefer to have close by.  (there is not Apple Store within less then a 4hr drive – need I say more?!)  OK so NW Florida is just not for me.  But while I search for the next place to call home, it’s not time wasted. I found a great coastal drive down the 30a with fantastic spots to hang out (and take photographs).

When friends & family come to visit, this is where I like to take them with a drive through Rosemary Beach . . .

Then onto my most favorite of beach spots….

When a few weeks ago  my “little” brother (who lives in Philly) finally made it down to visit. He was here for work, but since it was a two week trip it gave us a chance to hang out a little & for me to take him to visit my favorite spot on the coastal tour – Seaside, FL . (Some of you may remember images I shared a few weeks back). It has all my favorite things – great coastal views, unique fun locally-run shops & good eats!  And yes! By good eats I mean these crazy yum semi-perm food trucks that have the tastiest melted cheese sandwiches with avocado and bbq pulled pork sandwiches with spice baked beans – oops I digress! Yes umm right – Seaside, FL  . . .

And yes behind the sunglasses and the long beard is my brother, Adam & it was actually chilly out that day. It was only in the 50’s 😉

It was a nice visit from Adam but way too short of course.  But check out the 180 view! Now you see why not-being coastal is such a hard concept for me to grasp.  With gorgeous days like this it’s hard to imagine living anywhere but by the ocean.  Then again . . . there are so many other places out there I have yet to fall in love with  . . . .

So to stay coastal forever or just for now?  Where is your favorite place spot in the US??

Spanish Moss Grove { Lake Merial Florida }

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

It’s been almost a year & a half since I moved to northwest Florida & in all that time I have never taken a hike all the way around Lake Merial. I have gone almost half way around both ways, multiple times but never made the full circle (or full L). So last month I decided to take some water, a family friend, Tom, & the mutts off leash – all the way around. It took almost 2hrs! And I was excited to find a hidden grove of trees covered in soft grey Spanish moss. What a cool place for a shoot :)  I will definitely be taking another walk to shoot here again soon! Anyone want to do a portrait session here with me?!  (you will have to hike!)
