This beautiful family was vacationing in Clearwater Beach, FL from up north and scheduled a family portrait session at the closeby beach of Sand Key. This is a great location for Clearwater visitors because it’s much less crowded than Clearwater beach and has lots of interesting places to explore – the sea grasses, rock jetty, lifeguard station, and beautiful water are all great backdrops for beachy pictures. It always fun to shoot at this location. Endless inspiration and a beautiful backdrop for capturing family memories and fun.
Their son, age 7, was perfectly behaved and offered the cutest little smiles in pictures. What’s even more impressive was he had already had a 4 hour plane ride, 3 hour car ride from Orlando to Clearwater, and they hadn’t had time to stop for dinner so he was starving. Yet, he was perfectly behaved! I love the challenge of getting little kids to smile, but this was a nice little break where I didn’t need to work so hard on behavioral management or being goofy. It allowed me to focus more on the images and light, too.
Thank you R Family for letting me do you family photos! Your family was adorable, sweet, patient, and playful. Bravo 🙂
