I met the Ledet family in a pretty unique way. They had a session scheduled at Pensacola Beach with a dear friend of mine, and due to an unfortunate circumstance she needed to refer them my way. (By the way…she’s doing fine and back on the job! Praise the Lord!) But even though it was a last minute booking, we hit it off IMMEDIATELY.
This family is just everything you want when you capture a session. Goofy, fun, happy, cool with each other, and willing to just get silly with it and enjoy the moments! I mean check out that banana shirt!! #thebest
While we decided to get those “standard” posed shots, we really focused on keeping it real. Right down to the water run at the end! The boys lost their shirts, dove into the Gulf, and made the most of those final rays of light I had to work with.
Sessions like THIS one really remind me of WHY I do this. It’s for the memories y’all. Plain and simple. The Ledets are going to look back on these photos years from now, and each image will call to remembrance a funny moment they had together. They’ll get to show the grandkids one day just how goofy their sons were when they were young ;) And really just see how great a family unit they are!!
