Fort Myers Beach, Florida | Family Portrait Session

Traveling down the coastline of Fort Myers Beach and Estero Island, is one of our favorite drives in Florida. In spite of the heavier seasonal traffic, we absolutely love its gorgeous beaches, fun shops and restaurants, and have found some of the most breathtaking places for family portrait sessions.  When Ali reached out to book her family session, we were so honored to hear that she and her family were planning to gift the session to her parents for Christmas!  She also mentioned that they had booked an Airbnb home that was right on the beach; and we were beyond excited to be able to photograph her family in the very place that they would make so many beautiful memories together!

We began their session in their beachside backyard, surrounded by palm trees and sugar-white sand.  These vacation views cannot be beat!  It was such a stunning setting to spend time in while soaking up all of the sights and sounds of the beach. Ali and her beautiful family were wonderful to serve, and their kids were adorable! As the sun began to set, we headed out to the shoreline to take a few photos alongside the waves.  It was so much fun to capture the kids as they watched the water and ran along the sand.

It is always such a privilege to be able to document a baby’s first trip to the ocean with their parents and grandparents.  The joy on their parent’s faces as they watch their little ones discover the beach is simply priceless! We have also loved connecting with families who are visiting from out of state as they experience and discover the beauty of Southwest Florida. We hope that this sweet family enjoys every last minute of salt and sand in the sunshine state!
