Natural Light Portraits

Natural Light Portraits

I photographed the Nuetzel family on Captiva Island in August. It was a beautiful day at Tween Waters Inn where the photos were taken in natural light. We started near the beautiful and natural landscaping surrounding the historic cottage where the Nuetzel’s were married 10 years ago. I photographed the family with the addition of each of their children. The whole photo session took about an hour. We walked from the bayside of Captiva Island to the gulf side in just four minutes. Each of the children had their own energy levels, so I did my best to photograph each of them in their best moments.

Family Photo sessions on Captiva Island

For over twenty years I have photographed on Captiva Island and Fort Myers. I find that any day is just perfect to make my photographs with natural light on the islands. I can create my family photo sessions anytime of the day. It is so important that clients look their best for their pictures and light is one of the most important features to consider. With a stunning sunset as a backdrop, I will use artificial light on my camera. Essentially, I am competing with the sun when I take a picture of families with the sun setting on the horizon. Shown here are my favorite natural light portraits we captured on Captiva. For additional pictures please visit my portrait plays during natural light photo session on Captiva Island
