It was a Sun-fun-day with family home from their first year of college and their friends over. We were paddle boarding, surfing, walking the beach, collecting shells, playing baseball and cooking out. Summer is in full swing and is oh so colorful except for our black and white paddleboard paddles!
We had some dear friends of the family join us for a week of vacation on Longboat Key this summer. This special family is the kindest, dearest, most loving family I have ever met. The three siblings even held hands as we meandered through St. Armand’s when we went out for dinner after our days spent together on the beach as we explored those living in the Gulf and walked with those residing on the beach.
Two of the three siblings are dancers and we ended up having a really fun photo shoot. Their father, Michael Zappia is a professional photographer and was giving me some pointers!! Photographed is his daughter, Dominique, as she’s bouncing off the beach jump after jump! Where’s my Aleve? My back hurts just reviewing our fun photos!
