"C" Family Photographer | Watercolor Beach 30A

"C" Family Portraits at Watercolor Beach on 30A

I recently had a fabulous family portrait session with the "C" family. I've said it before and I'll say it again – I truly have the best clients ever! This family was no exception, either. As a 30A family portrait photographer, I love when clients bring Grandma along for their sunset, or even sunrise beach photo session.

This session was no exception! Grandma was there with an extra set of helping hands and to work some magic for those grand baby giggles. Grandmas, we invite you along for the photo adventure, and more importantly, we invite you a to be a PART of the amazing memories!

We met about one hour before sunset at Watercolor Beach on HWY 30A. I love shooting at Watercolor because it provides not only beautiful shoreline beach photos, but there is also a Turtle Safe sandy dune area we can use to create those gorgeous images with the dunes and amazing architecture in the background of the image (as seen in the image pictured below). Just a reminder, when visiting the Emerald Coast, please be sure to stay OFF the dunes as they are protected for the Sea Turtles :-) We love our sea life here on 30A!

For our sunset beach photoshoot, the"C" family choose an upscale casually carefree wardrobe . Mom and the girls had on adorable matching dresses while all the boys (and even grandma) were well dressed in a complementary blue color tone which really made for some amazing photos.

Truth be told... while the girls LOVED the sand between their toes and had a blast splashing in the water at Watercolor Beach. Their little brother was not so excited to have that sand under his bum. Poor little man was not having anything to do with sitting in the sand. Luckily, everything happens for a reason and there was a lovely lady there with a blanket that matched their outfits perfectly. She immediatly rushed over to us when she noticed he was not happy on the sand and offered to let us use it . It worked out perfect as we then had the chance to bring out the fun conch shells and let kiddos pick their favorites from the basket.

It truly was an amazing photo shoot.
