Many of our clients select Treasure Island FL for their Florida beach vacation. We love photographing portrait sessions on this wide stretch of beach for all of the natural grasses, palm trees and dunes.This family chose to stay at Bilmar Beach Resort , situated directly on Treasure Island beach.
Their youngest girl was interested more in playing in the sand, rather than posing for photos, so Scott and I found ways for the kids to relax and enjoy the beach while we photographed them. Asking a toddler to participate in family photos can be stressful, so I prefer to let them play and capture candids of these beach moments.
The overcast skies produced a surprise vivid sunset!

The humidity has dropped this month in St Petersburg to perfect fall Florida beach weather. But it is fun to look back at some of our late summer beach portrait sessions. This particular family was staying at Sunset Vistas Beachfront Suites and walked out their backdoor to meet us on the beach at our favorite location in Treasure Island. The kids were adorable at this family session, and it is so nice to see an extended family vacationing together.
I am often asked what to wear for beach family portrait sessions. This family selected one of the most popular color combinations for beach portrait sessions; white and tans. These outfits were fitting for this warm August evening. I especially like the belt the mom wore to add visual interest to her cute white dress. I like the popularity of white attire for beach sessions, but don’t forget be afraid of bold accessories to compliment the white fabric so it doesn’t fade into pale sand.
These amazing seersucker monogrammed outfits were bought online at Smocked threads by Cecil and Lou, which hosts auctions on their Facebook page of current adorable childrens’ clothes, many of which are perfect for beach sessions.
As expected, my awesome partner Scott Krebs nailed the post-sunset portraits lit using two SaberStrips. These modifiers are perfect for the beach, as they do so well in the breezes which naturally increase around sunset.
How adorable are these proud, involved grandparents?!
And we always allow time for some fun photos; OHIO!
