Family Fun on Sanibel Island {Sanibel Island Family Photographer}

When you think of the beach, what comes to mind? Sand? Sun? Water? SWIMMING? Meet “Miss Kathy” of ISR Fort Myers (Infant Swimming Resource), and her beautiful family. I met Kathy almost 3 years ago, when I enrolled Emma in to the ISR program. She was only 18 months old, and Kathy patiently (very patiently…Emma was tough!) taught her the skills she needed to swim and float in order to SURVIVE should she fall into a body of water. We are surrounded by water in Florida. Our home is surrounded by water…we have a pool a few feet from our sliding glass doors and beyond that, there is a lake. So for us, this was not an option…it was a necessity! It is now almost 3 years later, and Emma is a fish in the water! We have since taken August for lessons as well, and he is also a fish. It’s really cute to see a 13 month old swim and float!!! (I posted some pics from August’s lessons at the end of the family pics)

Thank you Miss Kathy for being so patient in teaching our children the necessary skills to save themselves and to enjoy the water! I had so much fun “working” with you and your wonderful family!!

They met 17 years from the day of their shoot! :)

Bless you if you’ve made it this far! Thanks for looking!
