Water and Lifestyle Photography  

A life time of creating. 

Sebastian Sunrise, Winter has come.

Finally, that time of year when we start to get surf often. The other morning I swam out with a few friends during an epic sunrise with some small but fun peaks rolling through. 

Check it out.

The surf was small, but the lighting was mental. Chauncey doing what he can with it.

Brock Taylor (@brock_simple) has been making the drive down from Cocoa Beach to surf, shoot and hang out lately, mahalo for that dood! 

It offered up a few fun sections and with Chauncey's experience at the inlet he was all over it. I couldn't ask for a better setup. 

What!? Even a lil head dip to start out the day for Robinson. Sickie! 

Da Guys. The faces you'll see most at the inlet, and they all rip! 

I'm so looking forward to the next coming months. I feel like we have a really fun year coming on! 

Thank you for visiting,

Thompson Family Portraits.

My wife and I had the privilege of shooting some family photos with the Thompson's yesterday evening. I get to surf with Terry(the Dad) all the time at the locals favorite spot, Sebastian Inlet. It was great to get out of the water this time around, meet his family, and capture some moments on the beautiful sand of a Florida beach! 

It wouldn't be a beach shoot with out some shakas! 

It would be impossible for me to explain the amount of energy that Hugh and Duke(the Boys) had! This goes down as one of the most fun shoots I've been apart of.

I tried to keep up... :) 

Boys will be Boys. 

and sand castles are made to be conquered. 

Best Friends!

Moments saved only for a Mother. 

 

Our second location was a cool little dock that terry new of, some more great Florida scenery!

Duke showing his strength! 

This world is just a boys playground. 

I had a blast shooting these photos! Thanks so much guys for letting me see a glimpse into the Thompson Family Life. 

 

And as mentioned, I get to see and shoot images of Terry often at Sebastian. A few days ago we had some really fun surf go through and I was able to grab this shot just as he was tucking and flying by. Great work Terry!  

hanks for viewing,

A weekend of Paradise in Vero Beach.

Shoots, this last weekend was a blast. 

It started with an invitation that I wasn't even sure was meant to be a real invite, well, turns out it was more than sincere. My in-laws long time friends(the Brown's) live over in Vero Beach, Florida, they know my wife Tatum pretty well and know that I am crazy about surf. The invitation was to get away and enjoy a relaxing weekend on the east coast. To say the least I jumped on it! I didn't even think twice about it... it's time to see some waves and get my feet sandy. We took off. 

It's fun not knowing where you are going or what its going to be like when you get there.. I love adventures. But these days adventures seem to be a little more tricky than what they used to be. Once upon a time I packed my car with everything I owned and was gone, now I pack my car full of my 4 month old daughters things and then attempt to fit my own gear. Times have changed, so the adventure has also changed. I wasn't sure what it would be like going to the Brown's home with River Lee and Tatum, turns out, not a problem at all. We were greeted with tons of love and an open house.  

I started my mornings off with some super fun shore break in the cold weather. 34 degrees and soaking wet... buuurrrr.... Very worth it! 

To add to the excitement we were able to meet up with our good friends Blake and Chelsea. We spent the day in Sebastian soaking up the sun and enjoying the surf. 

The surf was pretty tiny, but fun! Blake did what he could and I stuck my head in a few barrels.. perfect day. 

The sun came out and made it a fantastic day for the beach. River thought so... Of course she had a photo shoot, to darn cute to not. 

These Photos by Chelsea Erwin. A huge Thanks to Blake & Chelsea for cruising up the coast to hang out with us! Love you guys.

Yup, even after all that I still found some time to enjoy a Moon rise over the Ocean. I've never seen a full moon rise like this before.. I guess the East Coast does have some perks! It was AweMazing! I shot it all with a wide angle.. I apologize for that, because it was better than what my photos show. 

...and that is that... one weekend in the books. 

 

Thanks so much to Buddy & Gail Brown for opening your home to my family. We hope to see you again soon. 

Mahalo,
