We have been fortunate to photograph some recent High School Portrait Sessions and this session certainly was fun and fashion forward. My client and her family drove from the Orlando area during their vacation from Iowa to have these portraits taken in Treasure Island Beach, just minutes from Saint Petersburg. I am so thankful that they hired us and gave us the opportunity to create these photos.
How much fun are these yellow heels and top paired with her white skinny jeans?! Sometimes we arrive at the beach on a sunny day with clear blue skies and it is fun to shoot some images with sunglasses while the sun is bright.
This coral dress totally compliments my clients great red curls. She brought along the gray hat and it always fun to create a different look!A perfect pastel sunset to pair with our high school client’s cute southwest miniskirt and tank.
I really like blending natural light with strobed light at our portrait sessions, especially at the beach.

The night before my clients destination wedding at the Boca Grande Club on Gasparilla Island Florida, we met for the first time at Banyan Street in Boca Grande for a portrait session before they attended their wedding rehearsal dinner celebration.
We met before sunset and the sunlight was filtered through the leaves of the majestic Banyan Trees. We have lovely Banyan trees in downtown St Petersburg, but the tree lined Banyan Street in Boca Grande is unbelievably beautiful. Since their wedding ceremony and reception were both being held at the Boca Grand Club, I suggested that we photograph some portraits of them on Banyan Street the day before since we had determined it would be difficult to schedule time for them to do so on their actual wedding day.
I’m really happy that my clients were able to have these photos taken before their rehearsal dinner at Eagle Grill. Banyan Street is definitely one of the most recognizable natural landmarks in Boca Grande for a reason; its canopy is simply stunning! They are an adorable couple and its so nice to have these portraits of them right before they became husband and wife.

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!

There is nothing better than combining Lilly Pulitzer and classic St Pete Beach Florida beach destinations. My client loves spending time in Treasure Island St Pete Beach, FL and adores the quintessential Florida resort clothing line, Lilly Pulitzer. So she decided to incorporate some great Lilly Pulitzer fashions into her senior portrait session.
We started photographing her session at the Pink Palace, the Loews Don Cesar Hotel.The rear courtyard faces the beach and was fillerd with gorgeous late afternoon sunlight.
I love this dress; the keyhole neckline, the side slit, the white lace detail. And her Lilly shoes are perfect!
Then we headed over to our favorite beach location in Treasure Island for these gorgeous images with this pretty white cotton strapless dress. I love her accessories; the metallic sandals and headband.
How amazing is this Lilly Pulitzer turquoise dress?! I love how as the night progressed, the colors in the sky picked up the accent pink colors in the dress.
On this particular summer evening, the sunset afterglow was perfect. Scott captured these moon images with two SaberStrips with a great low camera angle.

Sometimes my clients book their portrait sessions the week before they arrive in Florida to enjoy their beach vacations in Treasure Island, Sunset Beach, St Pete Beach and Pass A Grille. Others, like this family, book in months in advance. I was thrilled to finally meet their latest addition and obvious star of this photo session: their 7 month old baby girl. Isn’t she adorable in her hot pink sundress and grey headband?!

Its the height of summer visitor season in Florida and my clients were able to schedule a portrait session the week they arrived at Sunset Vistas Beachfront Suites in Treasure Island, FL. Several of my recent clients have stayed at Sunset Vistas and been very happy with the property and its great location. It was a warm night on the beach and the evening started off with sun filtered light through the clouds. Those clouds later made for an amazing sunset and post sunset sky.
This family chose classic white and khaki attire for their Treasure Island beach photography portrait session and I like how the mom and daughter wore summery white dresses accented with turquoise jewelry and accessories. Plus these neutrals really make their adorable auburn hair and light eyes pop.
Once again, we were blessed with a nice sunset! Clouds really add drama to the sky this time of day. Scott set up two SabersStrips in an inverted L formation to create this beautiful light and you can view how we frequently use this setup on the beach when other modifiers would blow away or be in photo frame here.

It was a beautiful night on Pass A Grille Beach FL for these portraits. Photographed along the residential section of Pass A Grille, we had a nearly empty beach all to ourselves. The late afternoon blue sky and clouds brought in an evening rain storm, and these portraits were taken as the clouds rolled in before sunset.
