One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is photographing some of my family and friends. While I do the majority of my portraits on the beach, as a Photographer in Gulf Shores Alabama sometimes it is fun to get off the beach for some pictures. My friends Rob and Irene come to Gulf Shores to spend time with their family in Foley Alabama and we get together to shoot extended family pictures with the Grandparents. Their daughter is growing fast as all kids seem to do, every year I get some action shots of her. This is one that I captured of her last week. She is a delight in front of my the camera! I like to photograph children in action as it seems to bring out the best natural smiles and expressions. What "makes" portraits of children is getting the natural expressions to show their personality. That is always my goal.
