The sunrise on the beach is so beautiful! The colors start out warm and soft and the sky gradually changes to it’s vibrant blue. This extended family had lots of little kids and choose to do their portrait session first thing in the morning so they could enjoy the beach and Disney for the rest of the day. The kids were so cute and cooperative. We met at hotel on the beach which is along Madeira Beach. It was very convenient and a great spot! Each of the families also added a 15 minute mini session – a manageable moment for some cute, painless family photos. 🙂
This session was a little risky for me! My husband and I had been traveling to Thailand for our 10th wedding anniversary and we arrived home around 10pm. I met this family the next morning at 7am!!! I had warned them that if my flight got delayed I could miss the session but they were willing to take a gamble. It will always be a memorable session for me because I was so relieved I made it back in time for this amazing family and beautiful sunrise!
Then we snapped a few maternity photos for this happy couple:
Then we did the whole group and subgroups – cousins, grandparents with grandchildren, adults, adult siblings:
We ended with this perfect little family. Five little kids in one family? So adorable! They were also some of the most well behaved kids I’ve worked with.
