I LOVE Sunset Beach on Treasure Island! I often shoot beach weddings there and I think it is the perfect backdrop for sunset portraits. It's usually pretty quiet and the beach is just the right size. The dunes and rock jetty are beautiful! And as a photographer it gives me a lot more to work with than just the sand and the horizon. The Mitchell family were on vacation form the Mid West and they decided to reach out and hire a professional for some family portraits. I was thrilled! I had so much fun running around with this beautiful family! Jenna and Matt were so stinking cute together and their boys were the most happy and well behaved I've ever worked with! No joke! They smiled for EVERY shot! I was so impressed! Although my promised bribe of candy may have helped ;) Here are just a few of my favorites! If you're thinking "gee I want photos like that of my family" contact me know! Summer is the perfect time to get the kiddos out to the beach!
