Sanibel Island, FL | Sunrise Family Portrait Session

When we first visited Sanibel Island many years ago, we could have never imagined that we would one day be photographing family portrait sessions on its white sandy beaches for a living!  Capturing sessions for families vacationing in Florida has been a complete dream come true! Sanibel Island’s Lighthouse Beach Park is absolutely breathtaking, and the perfect place for sessions – especially at sunrise!  In the early morning hours, it feels as though we have discovered our very own private island; and as the sun begins to peek through the trees, it provides the most beautiful soft light for photos. 

Connecting with families from all over the states as they vacation in Southwest Florida has been so much fun!  When Jenny reached out to book her session, we were so excited to meet her beautiful family!  She and her husband have the most adorable little girls and it was so sweet to watch them explore the beach.  Showcasing seashells and flashing the most precious smiles, these girls did an incredible job for their photos!  Their matching blue dresses were ideal for the setting, and Jenny’s seashell earrings were the perfect touch!  As the founder of her own marketing company, it was easy to see her talent and eye for design shine through in the details of her session.  She and her family were an absolute joy to serve!

We finished out their session in the trails of the park, and chatted about the rest of their vacation plans.  They had travelled down from Iowa to enjoy a bit of sunshine, and we are so glad that they were able to soak up every second with their girls on the beach!  We hope that they cherish these photos as memories of this short-but-sweet life stage – time does fly when you are having fun!
