Boy, do I adore the Dotson family! After our very fun portrait on Saint Simons Island in 2011, I was so stoked when they asked me to photograph them again this year!
Not much has changed - Shannon and Mark still look fabulous, the boys still love cars and have gotten a little bigger, but Mark debuted a much shorter, spunkier cut after donating his ponytail last year for a good cause. And speaking of hair, the whole family showed up to their shoot with some amazing styles, thanks to Mark being a professional hairstylist based in Atlanta! (Look him up at Salon Ten80! He regularly travels to Saint Simons Island to pamper his growing clientele there.)
At the beginning of our session, we met on Jekyll Island's Driftwood Beach, where the boys loved searching the sand for crabs. We then traveled to the other side of the island, where the Courtyard at Crane's gardens never disappoint. The sun was picture perfect and cast a beautiful glow behind an already beautiful family.
Enjoy this sneak peek from my session with Team Dotson! I can't wait to see and photograph them again!
Is it just me, or do these two look like they're up to no good? :)
