The Story of The Starfish Family

The Creation Story of The Starfish Family.

I started working at the art gallery Artists at Gulf Place on  beautiful 30a in 2008. People would always come in and request original gifts for the happy couple because they were in town for a beach wedding. They didn’t want to do the usual champagne flutes. They wanted something beachy and original for a gift so I created the starfish bride and groom and photographed the starfish wedding at the beach in March 2012. This first original photo is page 4 in the book. The reaction to this image was amazing. This reaction led me create a larger family, more adventures and a calendar. After more adventures then came the book. And still today I am creating more starfish activities and adventures. Also, a line of Notecards for all occassions, Magnets, Holiday Ornaments, Wedding Cake Toppers and more!

The Starfish Family Book was created, photographed, written and self published by me…I love the road it has taken me down and can’t wait to see what is next.
