We love photographing at the Sanibel lighthouse beach. The lighthouse Beach Park is located at the East end of the island and provides many areas of green foliage, natural walkways, that soaring 98 foot lighthouse and even large areas of uprooted driftwood that make beautiful backdrops to any photograph. This area of Sanibel Island has a very untouched and natural feel. The whole Yanik family came down to beautiful South West Florida just in time for the start of our cooler Fall weather, so in a sense it was still a comfortable 75 degrees!
This Family portrait session was shot just before sunset. With an evening session we recommend booking an hour before sunset. You’re sure to get the best of both worlds in one session- Light & airy soft lit photos, then your vivid saturated sunset shots.
Simple clothing patterns and soft hues truly portrayed this session in print as it was in person, easy going and as quiescent as the ocean itself. The family color choices’ balanced well with their surroundings. We get asked a lot about what to wear, our biggest suggestion is to harmonize your choice of colors. However don’t be afraid of patterns altogether. Layers, even if just various clothing materials and simple patterns on one or two people in a large group can make a great focal point that the other pieces should pull from. Most importantly be comfortable in what you choose!
Our photographer ended the evening with this gorgeous glowing horizon found by just a quick walk around the tip of the island. It truly is paradise!
