My client was vacationing with her family for a week at the Guy Harvey Outpost at TradeWinds Island Grand Resort in St Pete Beach FL and booked me to photograph her senior portraits. This section of TradeWinds Resort has been recently updated and offered some great interior courtyard spaces for photos. We started with my client wearing a fun black and white stripe dress with great wedge heels. I love that she had her hair and makeup done for this session; it really makes a positive difference in the photos.
After changing into a simple white tee and adorable dark jeans, I photographer my client along the dunes on the north side of the Guy Harvey Outpost.
My client is a dancer and I think its adorable that she had 2015 on the bottom side of her tap shoes, in ankles crossed formation. Very cute idea and these couches by the outdoor fire pits at Guy Harvey Outpost were an ideal location for these shots.
This evenings sunset was subtle since the skies were relatively clear night, but produced a nice soft color band in the sky.

For this Senior Portrait session in Pass A Grille St Pete Beach FL, my senior was visiting her grandparents and decided to have her portraits taken while on vacation. Their home is located in the middle of Pass A Grille, and we were able to photograph some images in front of their home garden. The floral black dress looks perfect with the garden foliage. After an outfit change, we walked two houses down to the private access path to the beach. This path had amazing dunes which we utilized as a backdrop for some of the images. On the drive over from St Petersburg, I was very happy to see huge white fluffy clouds and blue sky to the south. As the evening progressed, a storm system appeared on the gulf, which gave us some dramatic skies before sunset and soft filtered daylight.
Once again, my client’s attire totally compliments the beach on this particular day. I love the subtle blues of the water and sky next to the green dunes.
My client had her friend join her on vacation, and I was able to photograph the girls together throughout the session. I’ve noticed the trend in Senior Portrait photography is to include these “best friends” images. I thought the girls looked adorable in their coordinating blue chambray and denim dresses.
