While I genuinely love all of my family beach sessions, the Linden Family's Pensacola Beach shoot was extra special.
Sadly, the Linden Family recently had to say goodbye to their beloved patriarch, Mr. Barry, who passed away last year. I actually photographed the Lindens a few years ago when Mr. Barry was still with us, and I remember him being a kind, strong man with SO much love for his family.
Mr. Barry and Mrs. Lisa shared four beautiful children and six adorable grandchildren. Though Mr. Barry is dearly missed, he left a legacy as an incredible husband, father, and grandfather. When it came time to reunite with the Lindens for their 2023 family beach session, we met at Mr. Barry's absolute favorite place, Pensacola Beach, Florida, and paid homage to him in a few of the photos by incorporating his signature hat and Hawaiian shirt.
Losing a loved one is never easy, and my heart goes out to the Linden Family. They've done an amazing job remembering and honoring Mr. Barry, and their Pensacola Beach family session was full of fun, special moments, and, most of all, lots of laughs. In my opinion, there's no better way to remember someone special.
Big thanks to the Linden Family for letting me capture these special moments for them. Don't forget to book your Gulf Coast family beach session ASAP before dates fill up.
