Sand Key Family Pictures

Sand Key Beach, just a short drive over the bridge from Clearwater Beach, and honestly, it feels like a world away. A slower, much less crowded, world away. When a fellow photographer, and ClickPro, contacted me that she and her family were coming to Clearwater and would I like to meet, my answer was an OF COURSE! But, not in Clearwater 🙂 I recommended we head to Sand Key. We eventually found she was actually staying on Sand Key, so it worked out perfectly. We had the most amazing hour of coffee before our session. Talking life, photography, the pandemic and mom-life and all the juggling we manage to do!

This mama is the talented Priyanka of Priyanka Berry Photography, based in Cincinnati  https://www.priyankaberryphotography.com/. Being able to photograph another photographer’s family is the highest honor. If you are heading to Clearwater Beach, let’s talk about your family pictures at Sand Key Beach.

Sand Key Beach for family pictures is really ideal. You have so much space to work with and lots of niches of greenery to make some portraits before heading down to the beach. Once you take little ones to the beach, you can pretty much guarantee that their attention will be on playing. Which, for me, is the magic of a family beach photo session in Tampa Bay. Playing, having fun, loving on your kiddos and partners, I mean, that is the real magic, right?

These two shots of the family walking down to the beach are honestly two of my favorites. The light was magical and dreamy over the palm trees. You could see the bright sunshine on the distant Gulf. I always just tell families, let me carry what you are taking with you as we walk down if possible. This is why. The quiet family moments before diving into the fun of chasing the waves and digging in the sand. Plus, as a girl who grew up in Wisconsin, I know how much I adored palm trees whenever we came to visit family in Florida!

How wonderful are these deep neutral tones at the beach? I just love how they used color and all different fabrics so even with mostly solid outfits, they had depth. If you are looking for what to wear at the beach without being totally neutral and soft, these more deep tones are definitely recommended! I love the mustard and coral color combo in particular! Plus, the black and white really popped with their oldest daughter’s fun pattern on her twirl dress. I mean, two twirl dresses, what could be more fun?
