This session goes to show that we don’t always need a colorful sunset to make great beach portraits. This family is from the Tampa Bay area and I think the summer dark skies completely compliment their attire. I love how their clothing in shades of cream and black and textured patterns creates awesome visual interest. I personally love darker colors at the beach and this session proves that sunset beach session don’t have to be all about pastels and summer brights.
Our clients braved the dark skies and met us in Treasure Island Beach near Bilmar Beach Resort and we walked north through the natural beach to our favorite beach location by Sunset Vistas Beachfront Suites and Residence Inn by Mariott Treasure Island. I captured portraits of each kid and mom as we meandered through the grasses palms.
A behind the scenes of how we light our sunset portraits- two SaberStrips on a boom stand. Probably the only modifier that we could use at the beach on this evening which is wind resistant. Love the softbox-esque light these produce!
