If there is one thing I love it’s capturing gorgeous families while enjoying their vacation! Capturing family memories is such an honor to me because these are the moments my clients will look back on and the photos I capture will become precious, tangible memories they will hold onto for many years to come.

These past few years I have noticed vacation photos are becoming more and more popular! Last year alone we captured over a half a dozen family vacation sessions! This year we are hoping to exceed last year and we are off to a great start!

On January 20th, 2018, we had the honor of capturing these family vacation portraits in Palm Beach, Florida. This was our first session of the year! It was a very cloudy and windy day but the lighting was gorgeous! Early that day there was a Trump protest but by the afternoon there was hardly anyone on the beach!

It was such a pleasure working with this sweet family! We hope they enjoy their family portraits for many years to come!

Palm Beach Family Vacation Portraits


On December 27th, 2017, I had the pleasure of capturing some dreamy Palm Beach family vacation portraits on Palm Beach Island. It was such a pleasure working with this gorgeous family! They were vacationing in Palm Beach for two weeks during Christmas and New Years break and decided to hire us to document their vacation memories.

The family met here in Palm Beach from all over the world. Some came from New York, New Jersey, California, Hawaii and some even came all the way from Brazil! It was such an honor meeting and working with this large family during their family vacation!

One of my favorite parts of their session was at the very end. The sun was setting and the sky became filled with dreamy pastel colors. We decided to end the session with a jumping shot. I was skeptical that it would work with fifteen people but I was excited to try it. So we did and it turned out to be amazing! It easily became my one of my favorite shots of the day!

The Chua Family | Singer Island Family Vacation Portraits

Singer Island Family Vacation Portraits at Ocean Reef Beach


Singer Island Family Vacation Portraits at Ocean Reef Park on Singer Island (1)


On Tuesday, August 22nd, Andrew and I had the pleasure of capturing the Chua family’s Singer Island family vacation portraits. They were vacationing on Singer Island all the way from Canada!

Where do I begin with this family? They might have been the sweetest family we have ever worked with! Not only were they always ready for the camera, looking picture perfect, but they also brought us the sweetest gift of organic maple syrup from Canada! How sweet is that!? I seriously love my “job”!

Their session took place at Ocean Reef Beach & Park on a breezy afternoon. The tide was high and the waves were crashing into the rocky shore. It was a gorgeous day to capture photos at this beach.

Chua family, Thank you so much for allowing Andrew and I the pleasure of documenting your South Florida vacation memories! You all were a wonderful to work with and we hope you enjoy your vacation portraits! Thanks again for the delicious maple syrup!

On Tuesday, July 18th, 2017, we had the pleasure of capturing some family portraits of the Parks family while vacationing in South Florida! Their South Florida family vacation portraits took place on a bit of a stormy day at Ocean Reef Park on Singer Island. The Weather Channel said there would be clear skies but storm clouds were definitely coming. This weather, however, made for some amazing beach photos! The light was incredible and this may be my favorite family portrait shoot to date!

On Friday, July 14th, we had the pleasure of capturing some vacation portraits for a darling family! Their session took place at Ocean Reef Park on Singer Island. Part of the family lives in Texas and the other in Ohio but they decided to meet in South Florida to share a family vacation! They stayed at the Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa which is actually right next door to Ocean Reef Park! We had a wonderful time working with this family and we hope you enjoy their tropical South Florida portrait session!

The Patel Family | Singer Island Family Vacation Portraits

Singer Island Family Vacation Portraits at Ocean Reef Park


Singer Island Family Vacation Portraits at Ocean Reef Park on Singer Island | Photos by Crystal Bolin Photography (1)


On Monday, May 22nd, 2017, Andrew and I had the pleasure of documenting the Patel family’s Singer Island family vacation memories! Their session took place at Ocean Reef Park on Singer Island. I love documenting family vacation portraits at this park because there are always a handful of gorgeous spots to choose from.

We began our session on the wooden deck that led directly to the beach. This wooden deck is surrounded by palm trees and many other beach plants. I love the tropical feel this spot gives. Then we moved on to the beach to one of my favorite spots! This beach is filled with flowy beachgrass and has an adorable wooden lifeguard stand. At sunset, the sun peeks through the grass and the palms in the background giving the most dreamy beach scene.

Afterward, we walked along the shoreline as Shane, their oldest son, gave the best expressions as he saw the waves approach his toes. He also tried everything in his power to dive into the water! This made for some great candid shots!

Lastly, we ended the session in, by far, the most unique part of this beach–the spot that gives this park the name, “Ocean Reef Park”–the coral rock formation on the edge of the shore. The waves crash against the rocks and the water splashes into the air, creating an incredible backdrop!

Patel Family, thank you for choosing us to document your first trip to South Florida! It was our pleasure documenting your Singer Island family vacation! We hope to work with you again!

Singer Island Family Vacation Portraits

Singer Island family vacation portraits at Ocean Reef Beach in Singer Island (5)


Singer Island Family Vacation Portraits at Ocean Reef Park & Beach

On Monday, August 1st, I had the pleasure of capturing Justin & Mary’s Singer Island family vacation portraits at Ocean Reef Park & Beach. While visiting Singer Island during their vacation, Mary hired us to capture some family vacation memories. Justin, Mary and their daughter enjoy vacationing in Singer Island so much that they have spent past Summers in Singer Island. Working with them was such a pleasure!

Since Justin and Mary were staying at the Palm Beach Marriott in Singer Island they decided to have their photos taken at Ocean Reef Park & Beach which is just next door to the Marriott. This park and beach is the perfect location for Singer Island portraits because of the wide range of beach scenes. There are a handful of gorgeous diverse spots that make for some unique Singer Island portraits. The reason this beach is unique is because of its rocky shoreline. This is one of my favorite spots at this beach because as the tide rises, the waves crash into the rocks and water splashes into the air creating an incredible backdrop.

We started the session in the grassy area in the Westward part of the park. The sun was setting in the background, creating dreamy golden-hour light. Ocean Reef Park has some rustic wooden lifeguard stands that add to the charm of this beach. Afterwards, we moved towards the beach capturing some classic beach portraits. We ended the shoot at the rocky area of the beach right as the sun was setting. We had a sendoff of waves splashing over 8 feet in the air! The perfect way to end this gorgeous vacation shoot.

Justin and Mary, thank you so much for allowing Andrew and I the pleasure of documenting your family’s vacation memories. Your family was a joy to work with! I hope our paths cross again in the future.

Ohio Spring 2016 | Family Vacation

2016 Bolin family vacation to Ohio

Ohio in the Spring of 2016 | Ohio Photography | Crystal Bolin Photography (2)

As some of you may know, most of Andrew’s family lives in Ohio. So sometimes it makes things hard but we always try to make the big moments. This year Andrew’s baby sister graduated from Xavier University in Cincinnati, OH. This was definitely one moment we weren’t going to miss! We are so proud of her and all her hard work these past four years!

As an added bonus we got to finally meet Andrew’s older brother’s 3-week-old baby girl, Emerson! Andrew and I were so excited to meet our niece and were even more thrilled when we found out that she was going to be dedicated in church that Sunday! She is just the most precious little girl and has some of the funniest expressions! When Andrew held her she looked at  him with the weirdest gaze. Almost like she knew he looked familiar but was still keeping a close and intense watch on him! LOL!

We also had one more celebration during this trip: Andrew’s birthday! I know this was one of the best birthdays he has had in a while because he was with his family! Since Andrew’s family moved to Ohio nearly 8 years ago he hasn’t been able to spend many of his birthday’s with them. So this was a good one!

This trip was a special one for many reasons! I was even able to see and spend some time with my own baby sister who recently got married and moved four hours away! She is best friends with Andrew’s sister so she wasn’t going to miss the graduation either!

Overall this was a wonderful trip to relax and hang out with family! I took this time to take a break from the busy season and relax. I didn’t even bring my highest grade camera. Just my Fujifilm x100 and my iPhone! 🙂 If it wasn’t for the fact that it was below 50 degrees the entire time then it probably would have been a perfect trip!! My sister and I with our South Florida blood were not prepared for how cold it was in mid-MAY and nearly turned into popsicles!! 😉

Till next time Ohio!

This place has been around since 1941! It has super yummy food and a really cool atmosphere! If you are visiting Cincinnati this is a great place to check out but make sure to give yourself time or go on a weekday because it gets very busy!! We went on a Monday morning and had to sit at the bar because it was pretty full! But they let you choose a cute little rubber ducky on your way out!

Palm Beach Family Vacation Portraits

Palm Beach Family Vacation Portraits

Palm Beach Family Portraits | Crystal Bolin Photography

While Jill and her two children were visiting sunny (and sometimes windy) West Palm Beach, I had the pleasure of capturing their Palm Beach family vacation portraits. We started our shoot on the sandy shoreline of Palm Beach. It was a very windy day but the rough tide exposed some rugged rocks that created a gorgeous backdrop. After, we took a stroll down Worth avenue where we captured some lifestyle portraits. I had a wonderful time capturing this family’s giggles and laughter. Jill, thank you for choosing Crystal Bolin Photography!
