Downtown Saint Petersburg FL Senior Portrait Session

Sometimes an overcast and slightly rainy summer afternoon allows for a great Senior portrait photo session. I met Chloe’s dad, Lee last summer while visiting Scott in Calgary, Canada.  Lee joined Scott on some outdoor adventures in Banff and Kananaskis, and I remember hearing about one memorable snowy hike to Ribbon Falls which involved a smart decision to turn around at the chains.

We moved off the beach to a grassy area of the park, and then mother nature intercepted with some beautiful cloud diffused sunlight. I…
