A life time of creating. 

River Lee Underwater.

Teaching River to swim has been a blast! I remember learning to swim myself and I do hope this is a time River can remember for life. She follows right in the foot steps of both Tatum and I. (tatum is amazing underwater...) Such a privilege we have as parents! :) 

The past two days she has really become an underwater girl. Her floaty may possibly be retired at this point. Once your underwater, its hard to be satisfied being above it. 

Here's a short edit I made of River swimming from earlier today. Shot with iPhone 6 and WaterShot Housing.

Thanks for stopping in! 

Have a great week! 


River Lee Harrington



Experiencing the life of my daughter River has to be the neatest thing to ever happen to my life. Seeing this little girl that has so much of her Mother and myself in her, yet so independent and unique in everything she likes and does. 

Last evening River and I were at the fountains in Vero Beach playing around with bubbles, shooting photos and such.. She sat down on the concrete corner for on of the pillars and her facial expression was one I haven't yet seen. How can this 2 1/2 year old even contemplate like that? Her mother is an amazing model ( and I see River following in those steps. 

Yes, she was very happy and filled with joy while we were playing, we just were able to capture one of her still moments with a serious face. I actually had her do it twice which she re created the expression with no issues at all. 

All around I am feeling like a proud dad with a huge blessing of a family. Praising the Lord for it daily. :) 

My little thinker. Its cool to see her noticing more and more of her surroundings. 

She is the cutest. That modeling talent is shining bright in her. 

Again just so blessed. 

Thank you for checking out my site and have an awesome Sunday.

My Unique Lady's.

I love these lady's and I enjoy playing with camera's... So it all makes sense to take lots of pictures of them! :)

Here's a few double exposures I took during our evening walk yesterday. Kinda playing around with a new technique and I think it worked out well. It does help that the subjects are so dang cute! 

Always an amazing time with these Gals! Love them both. 

Ask me about photo shoots for yourself! Lets create. @natehphoto or

Saturday Shore Shots.

Saturday's are the best day of the week. I get to spend them with my lil girl River Lee all day cause Tatum is off at work. It's a great opportunity for me to take River to the beach and hang out, shoot some photos from shore, and one day teach that girl how to surf. Until I can get in the water with River I will continue to look to her angle finding skills for all my shore shots. :) It's a perfect plan. 

This past Saturday we were at Sebastian Inlet where we took some photos of Matt Kechele and Nate Gallagher. The surf was a bit wonky, but the guys made the most of it. 

Yah, pre-surf game is strong.

Matt Kechele finishes off his cutbacks with such ease and style, you can see the level of experience he has in even the smallest of surf. 

Kechele, more of that perfect form.

I was shooting with a B&W polarizer, its only fair that I edit one image to be B&W. Nate frontside hack. 

Strong backhand from Kechele.

River was having a blast at the beach, but there were a few moments when I looked at her and thought that she had become part of the beach. The endless exploring, a million sea shells, and a sandy lunch can leave a lasting impression on a kiddo. I hope she always loves the beach like her mom and I do. :) She looks the part no? 

Trevor Gallagher cruised out with Nathan and brought his drone. I'm curious to see of he got any shots... Seeing him play with this almost convinced to to dabble into video.. Thats kinda a big deal. 

One last look as we left the beach. The fun never ends. 

I hope every weekend is as good as this last weekend. Thanks to my daughter for helping me out with those angles, and thanks to the guys for the great surfing.

River Lee and the Sea


I love my daughter! She one year and her favorite thing to do is go to the beach! Amazing. Tv, movies, none of that keeps her attention. The one thing that does is the ocean! She stairs at the sea and it takes a lot of work keeping her from just charging right into the Shorebreak. Can't wait to teach her how to surf!
