Sanibel Island Family Photographer

Sanibel Island Family Photographer tells of a Legend by Eskimo’s

While photographing this “star” fish I was reminded of another story.

Once upon a time, there was an old man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach every morning before he began his work. Early one morning, he was walking along the shore after a big storm had passed and found the vast beach littered with starfish as far as the eye could see, stretching in both directions.

Off in the distance, the old man noticed a small boy approaching.  As the boy walked, he paused every so often and as he grew closer, the man could see that he was occasionally bending down to pick up an object and throw it into the sea.  The boy came closer still and the man called out, “Good morning!  May I ask what it is that you are doing?”

The young boy paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean. The tide has washed them up onto the beach and they can’t return to the sea by themselves,” the youth replied. “When the sun gets high, they will die, unless I throw them back into the water.”

The old man replied, “But there must be tens of thousands of starfish on this beach. I’m afraid you won’t really be able to make much of a difference.”

The boy bent down, picked up yet another starfish and threw it as far as he could into the ocean. Then he turned, smiled and said, “It made a difference to that one!”

Not all star’s are in the “sky” Being a Sanibel Island family photographer I get to capture these stars too . Too see some of my family photos please click here.

Florida’s Sanibel Captiva Islands

Florida’s Sanibel Captiva Islands

Seventeen years ago I was introduced to Florida’s Sanibel Captiva Islands. My youngest daughter was 4 months old the other 2.5 and my oldest was 4.5.  I wanted to Vacation in the United States because I was /am a neurotic mom and did not want to take babies out of the country.  My husband’s boss at the time recommended Florida’s Sanibel Captiva Islands.

So, we went to South Sea’s resort. 

We hauled a double stroller, tons and tons of baby toy’s. A portable play-pen. SERIOUSLY what was I thinking?I remember the staff being just as wonderful as they are today.  After arriving we lugged all we needed on boat’s, to go “shelling” because Sanibel Island is known for the  shelling. After about two days  we had enough! We decided to enjoy the resort and all of its many amenities. The place was beautiful and I kept returning the amenities, the service and the beautiful grounds kept us coming back until 2004.

 

When Hurricane Charley hit

The Island’s were pretty messed up. But I couldn’t keep away. A few months later I found Marco Island 45 minutes away from my paradise, yet still the Gulf Coast of Florida. To view my photos please click here. As beautiful as it was I still couldn’t find the peace that I found  on Florida’s Sanibel Captiva Island’s. I looked into it and found Sundial Resort on Sanibel Island that was not as damaged and we began to vacation there. We discovered a kid friendly place and over the next few years we jumped back between both resorts.

Something very tragic happened to my family during that time and the one and only place I was able to find peace was there. Life was calm.  “Uninterrupted” is the right word. Strange things would happen – I threw a bracelet into the gulf after being drawn to this one particular place on the beach ( this bracelet had a name on it and was made from some kind of non fading silver. ) In my head I said ” show me your still here” and returning the bracelet to me. I never thought about it again. Three years later and many more trips I received a phone call from a woman who was fishing on Pine Island. Consequently she was from New Jersey and found my Bracelet. Right then and there I knew my future would be on Florida’s Sanibel  Captiva Islands. ( Not that needed confirmation) To quote Oprah it was my “Ah ha Moment” How to do Florida: Shelling on SanibelHome is where the heart is … when I am here, I am “home” and I am offering Photo Session’s  please Contact me here . To have photo’s of your amazing vacation taken !
