As I finalize our family’s hurricane preparations tonight, I wanted to send thoughts for safety to all of Fanciful Photography‘s clients. We have decided to ride the storm out in our home. We feel as prepared as we can be. All equipment is stored for protection from the elements and packed for a quick grab to safety. This image from a recent session at one of Sarasota’s beautiful and famous beaches is bittersweet. I know many of us to share the same joy and love for the beautiful turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Above all, I wish for the safety of the lives of those on the Suncoast. However, my heart can’t help but pray that our natural paradise is spared.
