If you are heading to Boca Grande, or the Gasparilla Inn or other VRBO spots on the island, contact me for your Boca Grande family vacation photos, please! It is so gorgeous and quiet there in the summer, I could photograph there all day long! I may need to convince my hubby for a getaway there soon!
Returning clients who come to me for full sessions are extra special to me. I get to tell their whole story. Something I just can’t accomplish fully in a shorter mini-session. We have time to play. It also allows time for kids to relax more. The play and fun the extra time of a full family session provides, are what I am all about! This lovely family has made the trek to Boca Grande for years, and the last two years, I have been lucky enough to photograph their story while they are there. We were super worried we were not going to get a session in with all the rain this past June, but we braved it and the result is a moody, and gorgeous backdrop for their family portraits.
Before our session we hit the “town” and by town, I mean one or two streets of shops and restaurants. I said it was quiet on Boca Grande, right? While scoping out the town, I spotted this fun teal door that really worked with their beach perfect attire. How I love it when clients ask for help with planning their outfits so I knew what they were wearing beforehand anyway. Their outfits looked so perfect together, especially at the beach. The patterns and different textures are still serene to go with the gorgeous Boca Grande beach scenery, but also vibrant enough to stand out in the sand and surf.
I know the last trip was full of sunshine, but this beach session will look completely different, not only because of the weather, but gosh, these two kids have grown. Check out our last session HERE, and view more of their session on the slideshow as well!
One of the last shots before their dad asked if I thought it was about to rain…yup, sure did! It was worth it to get soaked at the end! Another sweet end to a family vacation with priceless family memories!
