Seagate Beach | Family Portrait Session

Photographing engagements, weddings, and family portrait sessions on the beaches Naples, Florida has been a dream come true, and we could not be more grateful for the couples and families who have chosen us to capture so many milestones in life!  We first connected with Abby and Adam while photographing Abby’s sister’s wedding, and we were so honored to be asked to be a part of their big day as well.  We met for their gorgeous summer engagement session in Minneapolis, and again for their breathtaking wedding day in Chanhassen later that fall.  When Abby reached out to let us know that she and Adam had welcomed a daughter to their family, we were so excited to capture their family photos in Stillwater last spring.

There is something incredibly beautiful about documenting love stories over the years.  Abby and Adam’s daughter is now a big sister, and we couldn’t wait to continue capturing their newest life stage while they vacation down in Southwest Florida!  We met for their family session at Seagate Beach, and golden hour was absolutely stunning.  Starting off among the palm trees, we made our way out onto the sand and down to the rocks along the shoreline.  We love the variety in backdrops that the rocks bring to the images, and as the sun began to set, we captured portraits along the water’s edge.

We had the best time exploring as we watched Abby and Adam’s daughter running along the sand and trying on her daddy’s sandals.  Her precious smile and spunky personality was so much fun to photograph, and we can’t wait for her to run through the waves with her little sister someday!  At only two months old, she is absolutely adorable, and it was truly such a joy to document these sweet first memories of her family’s time together in Florida!
