Longboat Key Beach Pictures
Lifestyle Storytelling Film
Ah, Longboat Key. One of my favorite places in the world. Check out these Longboat Key beach pictures below. First up is the lifestyle storytelling film. Video and film is so magical. It not only stops time like photographs do but also captures movement and the raw beauty of families. We are not always perfect. We worry about our children’s behaviors too much. Worry we don’t look as thin as we may like, or our hair may not be all in the right place. But let me tell you, these films, they will be treasured today. They will be treasured when you pull them out to watch again in two years, when your littlest one is no longer in diapers. And again when you are about to see your oldest graduate from high school. Especially when you are left with just you and your mate in your much quieter home, and your own kids have kids the age they once were in these films. Am I right?
I have been slowly incorporating films into sessions for the last year or so. You may have seen some of my personal project films this year. However, this session though is incredibly special to me, not only because are they dear family to me, but they also trusted me to try my first fully filmed session. Not a session focused on photos, or snapshots. Rather just letting them be them. A video capturing their cuddles, their playfulness, their special time on their annual beach trip. The mama is the talented Reilly of Reilly Maguire Photography so there is always added pressure to live up to another photographer’s expectation. However, this family is so full of love and sweetness, any nervousness quickly went out the window. I smiled the whole time I was there, and the whole time I edited this. I am so glad we did this and I think I will be forever hooked on films for a long time. DSLR video capabilities make it so much easier to do both now. I am not perfect, but I am going to work my bum off to get better and can’t wait to see videos more often. I did capture a few photos here and there, and learned so much from making this film, so enjoy the clip and shots below.
If you are traveling to Tampa, Sarasota, or St. Pete for family vacation, definitely keep me in mind for a film of your vacation. Or, have you don’t the “yearly” pictures every year and want to try something new. I am looking for a few families to capture this fall before the crazy holiday season, so contact me about adding a video portion to your session or a fully filmed session!
