Franklin County Florida 

 Wedding and Family Photographer

       Your story, your love, is beautiful and I can't wait to capture it in images you will treasure for years to come.
I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of family photos that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them.I believe that your family's stories deserve to be told. I take a documentary approach to photography, and as a lifestyle photographer my goal is not to photograph your family posing for me, but to capture your family enjoying time together.I want your session to be relaxed and fun. It is my hope that you will leave your session with memories that you will treasure as much as the images you receive.  Your gallery may include a few images, with everyone looking at the camera and smiling, but it will not be because I told you to. I'll talk you through the whole process with posing suggestions and activities for you to do together. I will prompt you and keep you moving throughout your session, so you never wonder how your doing. Just have fun and be yourself.

If you can get your kids fed and out the door for your session…

I’ll take care of the rest.

I’ve photographed over 500 families, but I know that each and every family is different and special. I can’t wait to get to know yours.

I will chase your little toddler around the beach and capture that perfect chaos.

I will tell your family what to do with their hands (if they need some guidance) and help your four-year-old feel relaxed.

(And yes, of course we’ll get that photo for grandma where you’re all smiling at the camera.)


At Karilyn Photography on the coast, I pour my heart and soul into every shot I take. Photographing people is an exhilarating yet humbling experience, and I am honored to have the trust of my clients to capture their special moments. My ultimate goal is to create timeless, authentic images that not only fill your heart but also your walls, reminding you of how you felt during that precise moment in time. As a proud military family, I understand the significance of capturing memories for a lifetime. Contact me to schedule a session today!


Blessed beyond belief
It’s the way I feel when I look at a sunset. Or into my husband’s eyes. 
It’s the feeling of knowing everything in your life was meant to turn out just how it did. Of knowing that it all adds up. 
And if we slow down for just a moment, if we kick off our shoes and take a walk down the beach, if you get a chance to look up at this beautifu
l family you’ve made with this beautiful soulmate of yours?
I’m confident you’ll feel it too.

Please note: Florida weather can be unpredictable and varies from day to day. As such, sunny days will look completely different from a cloudy day, resulting in a different look in the photos. Photographing on the beach is especially challenging due to being exposed to the elements, but  I am confident in adapting to make sure you receive the best photos possible with the hand we are dealt. As much as we would like to, we can not control the weather. The beach will have some wind almost every day, so please be prepared for the possibility of your hair moving around some. In such cases, we recommend trying a hair style that can handle a breeze or perhaps using hairspray or bobby pins if possible to minimize the chances of strays. Retainer Fee is non refundable due to weather however, your Retainer fee will only apply to a future session non- refundable.

Ultimately, though, please remember that the beach in a place to relax and have fun! Enjoy the process and go with the flow. Let us take care of you and get the best photos we can. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out before booking!
