This evening, we had the great pleasure of photographing Rachel and CJ, who are visiting Clearwater Beach from Georgia. They are expecting their first child, so this vacation is an extra special one before the babies start coming into the world. We photographed the session more as a couples session rather than only focusing on maternity style images, because we wanted to highlight them as a couple along with the pregnancy. Rachel and CJ were a blast to photograph. We started the session shooting natural light, away from the water among the saw grass and the rocks, using the harder light when we arrived to our advantage to get some great life style type images. As the sun started to set we made our way down closer to the shore line at Sand Key, having them put their feet in the water, and getting all lovey. Don’t worry guys only the whole beach was watching. 🙂 Then as the sun started to hit that horizon and the beautiful colors started to really pop, we broke out the off-camera lighting equipment in order to get some amazing HD Sunset Action! At ClearwaterBeachPortraits.com when we shoot, we don’t just click away hoping and praying for a keepers, we shoot smart, for quality not quantity. As I downloaded the images, its hard to find what was NOT a keeper from this session with this amazing couple. It’s gonna be a blast editing the rest of the images, in the meantime heres a sneak peak from tonights session at Sand Key Park, Clearwater Beach.
