Milla C. Photography » documentary wedding photography by Milla and Brad Chappell

Mom and Dad

This past week, I had a wonderful chance to take a short break and head down to Florida for a few days. While I was home, mom, dad, and I went over to the beach one afternoon for some fresh seafood and reading. And, I brought along the camera to get some pictures of the two of them on the beach.

I love these photos because they’re so natural. For my entire life, these two have loved each other honestly and sweetly before my sister and me, and I am so thankful for their example of marriage.

It was wonderful to be with family, and it was HEAVENLY to feel the sand and the waves under my feet! Here are a few favorites…

    Amanda - Aww I love your parents! They are an example to me as well even though we haven't spent a huge amount of time together. But, they always graciously welcomed me into their home the few times we did take the road trip to Eustis! Please tell them I said hello :)ReplyCancel
