If you are having a family reunion on Clearwater Beach the best thing you can do is schedule a session with Clearwater Beach Portraits. You really can’t grasp how important these images will be in the future.
When I was a kid, my family used to vacation at the beach. One year we managed to get everyone together for a group picture on the sand and my mother has that picture hanging in her hallway today. Every time I visit I pass that picture and every time I stop and look at it. There we all are, I’m all of 13-years-old with braces and a sunburn. There are several people in the picture that have passed away. It’s not a great picture… back then there weren’t any companies like Clearwater Beach Portraits, but at least it’s something.
I can’t tell you how much that picture means to me. It means more every year. Professional photography is one of the few things that increases in value as the years pass. They may not know it now but every kid who is persuaded to smile for my camera will be glad they did as the years roll past.
I recently had the chance to photograph a family reunion that was really something. There were so many grandkids that they had bought numbered shirts for the occasion… such a great idea!
I just finished ordering some canvas wall art for the family and prints as well. I hope the images stay on the wall for a long time and that these kids get as much pleasure out of them as I have gotten from mine.
We get asked all the time, “Where’s the best place for family pictures on Clearwater Beach?” It’s a great question because the gulf beaches in Clearwater, Indian Rocks, St. Petersburg, Treasure Island and so on are varied and different and you want to be at the best place for your family pictures. Here are a few things to consider:
How big is the beach?
Some of the beaches are quite shallow. You want enough room to be able to move around and try different things if possible.
How crowded is the beach?
A tourist beach (like the pier at Clearwater) is packed with people and umbrellas that will add unnecessary clutter to your pictures.
You don’t want to have to drive around for 30 minutes looking for a space!
This is especially valuable if you have small children.
Clearwater Beach Portraits has worked on every beach in the county and we know where the best spots are for family pictures. Plenty of parking, a clean bathroom and a beach that isn’t too crowded with lots of room to move around and do different things. Trust the professionals. 🙂
There’s so much to do in Clearwater Beach when you are visiting that you might not think about getting some family beach portraits done by a professional photographer. It’s easy to be so caught up in the vacation… the day-to-day fun and planning for the moment that you don’t stop and think about the memories. It’s the same with my own family. We go on vacation and my kids moan every time I tell them we are going to take a few pictures. Then, a few years later they are so grateful to have those pictures. They don’t groan about it anymore because they finally understand that the memories are just as important as the moment.
It only takes an hour. One hour on the beach at sunset with Clearwater Beach Portraits will get you images that you’ll treasure for generations to come. You’ll capture your family and your vacation in one of the most beautiful beach locations in the world and that’s not something you can do every day. If you’ve got extended family with you, bring them along too! Grandparents are always welcome and no one appreciates family pictures more than grandparents.
