Saying goodbye to the beach....it hurts! It does, but this family has an adventure ahead of them as the move out of state. So, Sarah asked for us to do her family photo session with grandparents at a local beach in St. Pete and of course I said Yes!
Our two our extended family beach photo session was full of locations and fun - but of course I'll let the images and a few words do the talking....
While the sun was still high in the sky we started off in a little park which added some mangrove greenery to the first part of our Florida beach photo session. I started with some more traditional portraits so that when we hit the beach it would be all FUN (meaning I could direct less and shoot as things flowed)! These grandparents where super relaxed and love their families so very much! (See another grandparents beach session here)
On our way back to the beach we needed to cross a beautiful boardwalk, which offered another unique and "florida vacation" type background. The kids were more than willing to run some laps along the bridge!
The bubbles came out and you can really tell how windy it was! I love capturing the color and texture and patterns of the florida beach sand and this was the perfect opportunity during this part of our St. Pete Beach family photography session! (see my personal images on St. Pete beach here)
Look at these amazing grandparents during the family session! These grandkids will cherish these images now and in many years! I think more grandparents should be in family photography sessions!
Last but not least, we headed to and in the water (it was windy and a tad chilly) so after some fun beach family playing they went inside for a quick change to warm up and then we closed out our St. Pete beach family photography session with guitar playing at sunset.
