Turning Heads Linkup- Family Beach Photos


Well, as promised, I am sharing some of our family beach photos from our trip to Avalon.

They were taken by Photographer- Courtney Keim **

Beach Photos

I thought I would pick out some highlights and fun shots. We went to the Avalon beach at 6:30 at night, when the lighting was right.

Since we were 2 blocks from the beach, we all walked down as a group and the photographer met us there.

When we got to the boardwalk, we gathered our entire family for a group photo. Let’s just say it was a “tad” windy!

It was lovely to get the whole family together, as my mom wanted this for awhile.

If one thing life teaches you as you get older, is family closeness is such an important thing in life!

My brother is in marketing and was a buyer for Macy’s for years, so he chose the color scheme- coral and turquoise ( and shades thereof)

My hubby in his State of Matter turquoise button down, and my Venus maxi dress. This color blue is one of my favorites on him!

My two brothers Matt ( right) and Tim on the left with my nephew Aedan. Great smiles! Looks like my dad’s darkroom and endless times of being made to “smile” when we were growing up, came in handy!

Sister Sue, Makaila my niece, and Mom

Love that she captured the houses here on the beachas well as the sand at our feet.

My nephew Aedan ( 3) my sister in law Michelle,Β  and my niece, Olivia.

My brother Matt and his wife Shannon.

Hubby and I.

My mom’s early birthday gift.

We all pitched in to get her a ruby/diamond ring for her Birthday. She was flabbergasted! She loves the ruby ( our birthstone) .

Fun Action Shots

These shots should speak for themselves as we were asked to jump up as high as possible! See the outcome! LOL. A few family members caught air and others, well, their feet hardly left the ground! πŸ™‚ ( im one of them!)

Hope you enjoyed a few of the family beach photos!

    I had bought all of us Old Navy tees for a family photo at South Padre but we were missing one family member and things
    were so crazy we never managed to get a good photo of all of us together. These photos are true treasures!!

      Hi Leslie, thank you! We did have a good time even with the wind blowing as strong as it did. Oh, too bad you guys couldn’t do it. I am sure there will be another time. My mom had wanted this for awhile. Thanks again!

    It seems it is always windy by the beach!! I love these photos! The colors your brother picked out worked great. Your dress is so pretty and I agree the turquoise color looks nice on your hubby. It is nice to see photos of your family, since you talk about them some on here!

    These photos are amazing, but the ones of you all in line jumping in front of the ocean are incredible!! And the ring made me teary. What a wonderful gift. Your mom will think of this time at the beach with her family each time she looks at her ring. (I’m a ruby too.)

    Thanks for showing us out it’s done!!

    I think as we grow older, we understand the importance and appreciation of having a family. These photos will be in your family for generation to come. Love the choice of the colour scheme, especially that gorgeous turquoise that you and your hubby are wearing . You look absolutely amazing in this dress, Jess.
