I was so happy to have this family contact me for family photos again this year. This time they wanted vacation family beach photos. I photographed them two years ago at another favorite photo location of mine, Bok Tower. Check out more of that session HERE. This year, Anna Maria Island vacation family beach photos was our plan. It could not have worked out better! I got to spend a few hours with my own kids down there as we had a day off of school, too, and then finished up with a gorgeous sunset playing and chasing their sweet girls. We worked hard to find the right clothing for the beach. I think this mama did an awesome job! I loved her simple, yet stunning print maxi dress. The sweater added a bit of texture and then of course the matching tulle skirts were perfectly girly and beachy!
I loved getting there and finding a little gem next to their vacation spot, which I should have done a pull-back shot of. It was actually a little driveway of some beach houses next to public beach access, and the light coming in before we headed to the beach was stunning. I love a good bit of flare and warm yummy light. I always recommend for families with little ones to start photographing them off the beach first. It helps get some more traditional shots, where we can get the kids so sit and snuggle for pictures and portraits. All before we lose them to the lure of the beach. I also love playful, real kid moments, too, so the beach is wonderful for those candid moments, too.
Sorry, not sorry for the overload of pictures. This family is taking their Anna Maria Island vacation family beach photos into an album again this year. What a treasure to be able to look back at all this happiness any time they want. If you are here for this family, don’t forget to leave them a comment below so they can earn an extra gift print from me, too! Or, if you are looking for your own vacation beach pictures this year, I am now taking booking for July and August!
