Destination Boudoir Photographer | San Francisco Boudoir Photography | Shannon Griffin Photography

*this post contains some nudity

It’s crazy to think that destination photography has gone beyond weddings, but it absolutely has. I like to let people know when I’m traveling for work or pleasure because more times than not, I book a few extra sessions. These are people that live in different parts of the world, but follow my work. It’s so neat to meet people, who have been supporting me through social media for the last few years. I also book destination sessions all on their own and will often times fly or drive to them.

What It Means When Someone Invests In Me | West Palm Beach Family Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

What It Means When Someone Invests In Me | West Palm Beach Family Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

“Support small businesses”. This is something you see posted a lot on social media, or talked about in social settings. It really is every single client that keeps a small business owner afloat. Sarah Beth is one of those clients.

I’ve known Sarah Beth for several years. She first hired me to photograph a boudoir session of her, then her wedding, and again when she was pregnant with her second child. I got to witness her marry her loving husband and photograph her when she was carrying their child. Sarah Beth is a hair genius and has a lot of connections. I know that she could have very easily hired someone else for those events, but she chose me. She believes in my art and wants to make sure I flourish. This type of relationship builds my confidence, keeps me in business, and solidifies my decision to do what I do for a living. Not only that, but it allows us to build a trust. I’m able to show up and create art because I know that Sarah Beth believes in what I do, as she has hired me for three huge life events. She has become completely comfortable in front of my camera, and let’s face it, she’s a goddess (I mean, just view the photos).

I love how this couple was able to mix tropical decor with a modern spin. It was the perfect aesthetic for the Hillsboro Club. I’m still obsessed with Megan’s emerald engagement ring.

Rosemary Beach Family Photographer | Bosse Family

30A is one of the most beautiful stretches of Florida beaches. It is known for it's white sand and breathtaking sunsets. It is no wonder that families come from all of the world to vacation here. I get a lot of calls and emails with vacationing families inquiring if we can set up a family session while they are visiting. It is one of my favorite places to photograph, as there are so many options other than the beach. We typically end the session on the beach, close to sunset, but start with taking precious photographs around the town. If you've never been to Rosemary, Alys Beach, or Seaside, it's like you walked onto a movie set. The architecture of the homes and restaurants is so perfectly executed. There are gorgeous walls that are filled with ivy, cobblestone streets, natural hued stucco, and just everything dreamy that you would want as a back drop. Then, you have the sunsets that look like watercolor painted across a vast, never ending sky. I love variety and Rosemary Beach gave us exactly what we were looking for.

The Bosse family was visiting because Rhiannon, mom in these photos, was attending a floral workshop. They decided to make it into a family trip and wanted to document this season in their lives, while in Rosemary Beach. When Rhiannon called me and asked if I would be willing to come to Rosemary, I jumped at the chance. The vibe on 30A is so perfect and I will take an excuse to head that way. It was truly an honor to capture such fleeting moments that they have with their son. I can't imagine a better career than to be a photographer, especially on the days that I get to be a Rosemary Beach family photographer.
