Girls Trip to Orange Beach

When Brie contacted me about photographing her “Girls Trip to Orange Beach”, she was very specific.  These ladies are very dear to me, and I want someone to capture the essence of our friendship.

Friends & Sisters for life!

How easy was it to talk 8 ladies in their 40’s & 50’s into a swimsuit photoshoot?

Not very, says Brie.  She has that kind of relationship with these ladies.  They go way back to college days, and these sorority sisters have been through lots of fun times together!  A swimsuit photo at the beach is right up their alley.

This is us! Just a group of ladies in their 40’s & 50’s enjoying life!

Keeping it fun, was the only plan for this girl’s trip to Orange Beach.

After renting a condo with a lazy river and twirly slide, they made plans for filling the few days they have together.  It seems they had seafood and wine on their minds… but not before photos, lol!  Everyone said they were starving afterward.  For goodness sakes, you cannot think about eating when you are taking swimsuit photos!

Looking good, having fun!

We met at the pool and walked out to the beach together.

This short hike told me so much about this special group of friends.

Most have known each other for years and years, but they have added a couple of new additions along the way.  Each newcomer was excited to hear that they came from the same AKA sorority.  Different schools, but same sisterhood!

AKA brought them together. Their friendship kept them together.

It was just meant to be!

The plan was to be as colorful as possible, wearing a bright suit for the photos, then changing.  Halfway through our session, the ladies excused themselves to put on a black suit & sport their AKA letters.

As you can tell, we had a great time and got the Friend photos of a lifetime.

Here is the text that I received after our Girls Trip to Orange Beach photoshoot.  “Two words: Expectations Exceeded!!!  We genuinely love these pictures so very much!!”  There was plenty of heart and love emojis included, haha.
