Naples Pier is one of our favorite places on earth, and its pristine beach draws visitors from all over the world. Ashley and her family had travelled to spend time with her husband’s parents near Vanderbilt Beach, which was the very first beach we visited in Naples seven year ago. We met for her family session just south of there, and began with portraits near the entrance to the pier before walking down to the water’s edge. We could not have had a more gorgeous evening for photos! The sunset was incredible, and provided the perfect golden-hour glow as the boys ran along the shore, splashing in the waves.
Naples Beach is breathtaking, and we love photographing sessions within each unique backdrop of every stunning setting. We had such a great time exploring the beach together, and chatted as we captured family and individual portraits along the sand. Ashley is also a photographer, and it was so much fun to connect over a few of our favorite educators – Amy and Jordan Demos as well as Katelyn James! We captured headshots for her before ending the session with a few more family photos as the sun disappeared over the horizon.
We can hardly believe our photography season here in Florida is so quickly coming to a close! It seems as though it were just yesterday that we had arrived in the sunshine state, eager to see what the beaches would be like after the hurricane last fall. We are incredibly relieved to now have been serving families and couples alongside Southwest Florida’s coastline for four months, documenting its changed, and yet still stunning shoreline. We are beyond grateful for the chance to photograph this sweet family, and we hope that they enjoyed every last minute of their time together in Naples, Florida!
