It was a gorgeous evening out on Perdido Key and once again Johnson’s Beach did not disappoint. We had golden sun, rolling waves and a gentle breeze. This beautiful couple made memories that they will cherish for a lifetime.
When 2020 started we were so excited about the upcoming year, little did we know we would be facing a pandemic called Covid and a major Hurricane named Sally. These two things brought many challenges & heartache but through it all we closed 2020 with grateful hearts. Only God can take those two catastrophes and turn it into something good. 2020 turned out to be one of our busiest years yet. With that being said we were able to use a portion of our proceeds to help the Florida Baptist Childrens home. We helped with household supplies, diapers and school supplies. We also had the privilege of providing their Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. We filled many precious children’s birthday wishes that involved cakes, cupcakes and gifts. It truly warms our hearts to know that many children were Blessed this past year through our business. We are so thankful to be able to do this.
We also met so many dear families from across from all over who came for photo sessions. We had three surprise engagements, two senior sessions, several special children’s birthdays, celebrations, family reunions and many returning clients that have become our dear friends, we were so happy to see them again and their growing families.
We are so thankful to have been a part of all our families special memories in 2020 and knowing the memories that were made will be cherished for years to come. We are so looking forward to 2021 and all the new memories that will be made and the new families that will become dear friends.

We are so excited to have partnered with Basic Invite. It was so fun to create our Holiday cards with such ease and beauty. We tried 5 of Basic Invite’s holiday card designs. Our favorite combination was the Bracket shape and our favorite paper is the Double Thick Matte.
There are many things that separate Basic Invite from other card companies.
Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design, you can change the color of each element on the card. With over 180 colors to choose from, you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it. This is what sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company. This was so helpful in deciding what colors look best with each of the photos we chose.
We love that Basic Invite offers Custom Samples- Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers to order a printed sample of their actual invitation before they place their final order. They can see the paper quality and how it will print in real life and make sure the card is perfect in every way.
With over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes to choose from, this makes just a simple envelope fun and festive. With all these different options, customers can make their envelope match the invitation. All of Basic Invite’s envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be closed quickly and securely, no sticky lips here.
We were thrilled with having the option of Basic Invite’s address capturing service that allows customers to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are stored in the customer’s account and can be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders.
To add some holiday sparkle and bling to your cards, Basic Invite has the option of gold, silver, and rose gold foil. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs. This feature is great for holiday party invite template.

Lashes and Lenses Photography response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
First we would like to offer our prayers for health and safety for all of our clients, whether you are old friends or those who we have yet to meet. Our thoughts are with those who are directly affected by this virus and those who are fighting it from the front lines. We are so thankful for the selfless healthcare professionals who have devoted their lives to saving others.
Lashes and Lenses Photography is still open for business although we will be taking precautions as we move forward with our Spring and Summer break clients. We will be following the President’s directives, the State of Florida’s mandates as well as following the CDC’s guidelines.
As of today we will not be able to take new clients with more than 10 in their party.
We will be sanitizing any props that are brought for the sessions as well as all of our equipment.
We will also be moving to a paperless contract process.
We ask that if anyone in your family has been sick within the past 14 days of your session to please let us know and we will make other arrangements.
We would like to do our part to “flatten the curve” and keep our Clients healthy.
We will be reviewing the ever changing situation regularly and will keep you up to date with any developments. Please also check our website, Instagram and Facebook for up to date information.

We are so happy that Brylee and Maverick contacted us at the last minute to see if we could squeeze in a session for them before they headed back to Tennessee. They are such a fun couple that are madly in love with each other. They believe in living and enjoying life to the fullest. They made memories that evening that will be treasured for generations to come!
