Florida Family Vacation Beach Session - Fort Pierce Family Photographer

Jen contacted me one chilly spring day from her home up in New England looking for a photographer to do a family session during their vacation here in Florida.

There’s a saying around here: I live where you vacation. And it’s true! I can’t tell you how many sessions I’ve done for folks visiting the area. And what a treat it is for the families. Just playing for an hour, connecting, and being present with each other. No phones or itinerary except to enjoy the moment. And then, when they are back home and still sun kissed from Florida, they receive a carefully edited collection of photos from their vacation, perfect for a photo book or a beautiful canvas to hang on the wall.

Think back to your last family vacation.

How many awesome photos you got of your family all together without phones? Smiling. Having fun. A few? One?

“Of course I’d love to document your family on your vacation! I’m so happy you found me”

Little did I know how true those words were.

After we got chatting I learned that Jen was a photographer herself and a volunteer photographer for Preemie Prints. She had fallen in love with this non-profit that gifts free sessions for NICU babies either in the NICU or sometime before their first birthday… because her twins were NICU grads themselves. <3

After her session I checked to see if anyone volunteers for Preemie Prints here on the Treasure Coast. Nope! There is a need for this area to be serviced and I took the call. Thanks to Jen, I am now a Preemie Prints Volunteer myself. I am so grateful to be able to serve families with preemies all along the Treasure Coast with my time and talents.

I had a blast getting to know Jen and her family. Watching the kids’ eyes widen with awe as they took in sea turtle nests, seaweed, and broken sand dollars (worth a quarter each, right?). And documenting their tiny adventure alongside the Atlantic.

And I think they had a little fun too!

Beautiful Blues at the Beach

Hello, beautiful blues.

This was the second half of a fun afternoon with a gorgeous family. Sometimes sessions like this make me wonder if this should really be called work. I mean, going to the beach and chasing kids with a camera? And it didn't hurt that the weather was PERFECT.

Guilded in Goldenrod

Let me just get it out before I go any further: Rachel is awesome! She is the creative entrepreneur behind Cute by the Cut. I have photographed her products for her and she is also my go-to banner maker when I need them for sessions (here and here). She is also a strong momma to three bright and independent souls that I have had the honor of photographing several times in the year since I've known her family. I LOVE watching them grow and capturing their spirit as their personalities continue to develop.

Rachel's creativity and loving energy pour into everything she does, and the outfits she picked out for her family were no exception. Honestly, she could probably write the book on "what to wear to a photography session" she nailed it so perfectly. ;)

quintessential florida - treasure coast family photography - palm tree alley

One thing I absolutely love about the Treasure Coast is that there is no lack of locations for photo shoots. We have the gorgeous Atlantic Ocean which shares its cerulean, aquamarine, and sea glass green waters with the fabulous Indian River Lagoon. Talk about amazing beaches and beautiful coastal habitats. Then of course we have savannahs, coastal dunes, forests, rivers, islands, orange groves, botanical gardens... the list of outdoor photography venues goes on and on. And it is Florida so there are always palm trees to be found.

Location scouting can be a fun part of being a photographer. It helps to have my dedicated models around to take some test shots.

The other day I stumbled upon two rows of palm trees that were planted at an entrance to a beach. These palm trees are begging to have portraits taken among them. Imagine your family portrait or your beautiful and round pregnant belly framed by quintessential Florida?  Or what what about a romantic snuggle captured in time with the sun setting behind you?
