Gulf Coast Beach Portraits Photographer


After careful consideration, we have decided to retire this year. This web page was already paid for, so we thought we’d use it to thank all or faithful clients and let other know that we are not available.  If you need to contact us for personal reasons or concerning a previous session, you can leave a message at our business phone.

Photographers we recommend are, in no particular order:

Lightwave Photographs – (251) 752-2340 (

Surfside Photography – (251) 948-5597 (

The Picture Man – (251) 948-3686  (

These are all experienced professionals. They offer a variety of prices and packages, so check with them to see what fits your needs.

There are now lots of cheap shooters out there who offer a zillion shots on a CD, and if vacation snapshots are what you want, they’re for you. These shooters show little knowledge of lighting, posting or background, but they have a camera. Therefore, we strongly recommend those listed above.

It has been quite a ride over the past 28 Years, and we have enjoyed it and made good friends and memories.

Thank you all!

George and Patsy Carleton
