Marco Island Family Photographer

Usually, my Marco Island family session begins an hour before sunset, and we finish the natural light portraits just as the sun is setting. For over twenty-five years I have created family photography on the beaches of Marco Island. The island perfectly faces to the west for great sunset pictures. When you visit, you will see that Marco Island is popular during the holidays as families travel from the north to visit grandparents who live and vacation on the island. After that, the kids and family usually walk to a beach restaurant for dinner and desert!

The Hunter family gathered on Marco Island for an enjoyable vacation in June. They called me some weeks in advance to schedule a fun Marco Island family photography session. The photo shoot had a variety of goals. First, we had an engaged couple to shoot for their ‘save the date’ announcement, then the parents and a new family with a baby. Finally, of course the grandparents and baby! So, we met an hour or so before sunset for photos on the lawn at Marco Marriott Resort where the Hunters were staying.

Family Photos on the beach

After some pictures with the green landscaping, we walked to the beach to walk along the beautiful white sand beach that Marco Island is known for. While I was photographing this family, the sunset was beginning and I could sense it was going to be great color and light soon. So, we finished just around sunset and the family then went for dinner. Shown here are some of my favorite photographs we created. Here is more Marco Island photography to view.
