Melissa called me to let me know her family was going to be on vacation at South Seas Resort on Capitva Island. She wanted to get some family portraits taken while they were there. We planned an early morning shoot there on the beach and what a gorgeous morning! The kids had fun walking around the beach, exploring, looking for shells and dodging waves! I absolutely love being at the beach and I’m rarely there early in the morning, so this was fun to play with sunrise and early morning lighting in addition to photographing such a lovely family! As you plan your family holiday portraits, and your nights and weekends get filled up, consider an early morning shoot…most young children are at their best early in the morning and there are plenty of great locations for sunrise lighting!
One more thing! If you’re not coming to SWFL anytime soon for vacation, why not come on vacation with us? We have a few working vacations coming up – we will be in the Cleveland, Ohio area the week of December 13 (great oportunity for snowy winter portraits or cozy fireplace photos!) and then we’ll be in San Fransisco in late April of 2011 (San Fran, Napa and Monterray areas). Contact us for more details and to book your sitting!
