“B” Family Beach Session | Longboat Key – Bradenton Photographer


I think I somehow neglected to do a blog post featuring my favorite Canadian clients – shame on me!  I love working with them and did a shoot for them a couple of years ago as well.  This session came close to not happening due to the ominous weather……thunder was rumbling and there were some lightning flashes but we got down to business and rather quickly before the next wave of storms came through.  We also had the pleasure of a beautiful rainbow that invited itself into just about all of the images taken that evening.

We parted ways when the session was over…….and sure enough I just barely made it to my car before the sky opened and and it started pouring like crazy.  Typical Florida weather lol.  I hope you see you all again in another year or two!

F | L Family Session at Durante Park

IMG_8608_edit_web_blogThis extended family hails from the east coast of Florida and were visiting Longboat Key during a hot and steamy week in July.  Instead of attempting a beach shoot which would have been too late in the day for the baby – as well as still too bright and hot – we opted to meet at Durante Park.  The little one did a great job and lasted for a good duration of the shoot….never an easy feat for most young children, toddlers, and babies. I even got a smile!IMG_8671_edit_crop_web_blog
