Captiva Family Photography
Families arrive to Captiva Island to enjoy the quiet, natural effects of this island north of Sanibel Island. Pristine white-sand and gorgeous teal water. Palm trees swaying in the breeze. The driftwood and natural greenery provides a rich contrast to the bright sand. The warm ocean breeze drifts in, melting away tension and bringing a sense of happy bliss. So, this is the best opportunity for a family photo session.
Captiva Island Beach Photography
For over twenty years I have photographed families on Captiva Island. In many instances, the families gathered for the holidays and desire to have a family photograph of everyone and then we continue to photograph individual family photography. Shown here are my favorite images of these Captiva family photographs of the Shaffer family and others…
Family Photo Sessions
The Shaffer family came from Chicago and Denver for their holiday week on Captiva Island. We met late in the afternoon to create some Captiva Island photography of Shaffer family with sunset photographs. I arrived to their rental home on Andy Rosse Lane. We then made some images in ‘downtown’ Captiva. The landscaping along this street is very lush and green. After we photographed the families and children individually, we then walked two minutes to the beach. The children had a great time picking up shells in between each of the several related families we photographed. Captiva Island has a great assortment of shells along the Gulf of Mexico shoreline. We continued photographing each family individually then the children with their grandparents. At sunset, we made a photograph of the whole family. Shown here are a few of my favorite images that we created. The sunsets are beautiful on Captiva Island as it faces to the west. It is a charming little island north of Sanibel Island. There are numerous fun restaurants within walking distance of any home on Captiva Island.
Sometimes grandchildren are visiting grandparents and it provides an opportunity for three and sometimes four generations for their Captiva family photography. Some of the pictures on this page are of the Witting family. We met on Captiva Island and had fun for an hour or so to capture these images in September. South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island is a great family vacation destination, many pictures shown here were taken at the resort.
