School Photo Disasters

My kids cannot take a good school photo to save their lives.  Inevitably their hair is all messed up, they look so stiff and awkward, and the only good the photo will serve is  a good laugh for the yearbook when they look back on it in 10 years.  It is definitely not frame worthy or how I want to remember my children.  

Rather, my favorite portraits of children are caught when they are just being themselves and their personalities naturally shine through.  If you are not happy with the photos you have of your kids because noone can seem to capture their true personalities...i would be happy to help!  Click HERE for more info!

"Remember that time we out ran a storm, then went back for more and got caught in a torrential downpour?"  

I'm pretty sure this was the most epic photoshoot I have done yet.  We had about 20 minutes together before it started to rain on us, we then hid for about 5 min under a tree, the rain stopped so we went back out for more and had another 5 min before the torrential downpour got us good.  Everyone had such a good time with this though and we definitely made memories that i'm sure these kids won't forget soon!  Honestly, I LOVE all of these photos, especially the rainy moments...and am ready to do another session just like this!  So...who wants to book a rainy day session?  I can't thank these clients and friends of mine enough for their amazing attitudes and ability to just have FUN and go with the flow.  Their fun personalities definitely show in these photos!  

Together again | Tybee Island, Ga | laurie schultz photography

The sounds of a deserted beach at sunrise are some of the most relaxing and soothing sounds (the roar of the waves, seagulls muffled squawking).  This gorgeous family agreed to meet me at sunrise when the threat of rain kept increasing for later in the day.  As I waited for them at the end of the beach pathway, I started to hear muffled voices walking toward me, those muffled voices turned into joyful and excited chatter.  It had not even been 48 hours since this family had been reunited (part of this family lives in Africa!), and you could hear and feel the joy and excitement they had of just being together again.  What a joy for me to be able to capture this special time in their family's life.  This also was the littlest member of the family's first time at the beach!  His first time putting his toes in the sand and in the warm ocean water.  What a fun morning it was experiencing all of this with them, I quickly fell in love with them.
