It always gives me so much excitement to take photos for a family visiting from another state or country while they are visiting Florida. The Hawkins family are hard working farmers that come from a small town in Missouri. They were only staying at their hotel in Lauderdale Bahia Mar for a couple nights before they were headed on a cruise, so I am so glad the weather was absolutely gorgeous for us. Even better is that their hotel was right across from a state park beach and it was gorgeous! I loved my time with the Hawkins family!
