New Smyrna Beach Photographer- Russo Family Portraits

Every once in a while, I will seem to have a family portrait photo session that seems to never end... Every time I think we have made all the great photos we can with the same people, and the same small section of beach, one of the family members will think up one more combination that they want to have.  It doesn't help that there were also about 4 separate family groups as part of the larger family all vacationing in New Smyrna Beach for the summer.  But it was all fun, and I got some great shots, here are some of my favorites.

New Smyrna Beach Family Portrait Photographer- The Smith Family at Smyrna Dunes Park

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to photograph the Smith family who were just finishing up their vacation in New Smyrna Beach, and were about to head home to Oklahoma.  They decided on the last day of their vacation that they wanted a family portrait ph the beach, and lucky for them, I was available.  I met them at Smyrna Dunes Park at the northern most tip of New Smyrna Beach, FL just before sunset, while a large thunderstorm was building just to the West.  I worked quickly to beat the storm, and I still made some great images.  With this shoot I pulled out some lighting tricks to enhance the sunset, which was a little muted by the thunderstorm.  Here are a couple of my favorite images.

New Smyrna Beach, FL Family Portrait Photographer- The Posey Family

I met the Posey family on the beach at the condo they were renting for their vacation week in New Smyrna Beach, FL.  It's always interesting when I meet a family at their condo for a family portrait session on the beach.  I will usually draw a crowd of spectators fairly quickly.  Luckily though that did not happen this time, I think it was in part due to their condo being on a less populated section of the beach.  Anyways, here are some of my favorite images.

New Smyrna Beach Family Photographer: The Bozard Family Portrait Photo Session

Last week I photographed several family portraits along a couple different parts of New Smyrna Beach.  This location at Smyrna Dunes Park all the way at the North end of New Smyrna Beach, FL is adjacent to the Ponce DeLeon inlet and in several photos you can see the Ponce Inlet lighthouse in the background.  This is my favorite beach to photograph on because I have so many options for photographic backgrounds from the Ocean, Dunes, the rock jetty, and the light house.  Sunsets on the water of the inlet also work great.  Here are a few of my favorite images from the photo session.

New Smyrna Beach Family Photographer: The Pieroti Family

Last week I had several opportunities to photograph several fun families along the beach.  This family portrait session was at Bethune Beach Park in New Smyrna Beach, FL.  I met the family a little bit before sunset and we walked up the beach a little bit to a clear section of the beach.  The session even included the capture of a ghost crab, along with the usual smiles, and camera clicks.   Here are a few of my favorite shots from the photo session.

A Daytona Beach Greek Orthodox Baptism Photography

UPDATED 6/17/2011: Video Slide Show Added.

A week and a half ago I had the opportunity to photograph a Greek Orthodox Baptism in Daytona Beach, FL. It was very interesting seeing all the traditions of the Greek Orthodox Church. I would also like to thank Father Joseph for telling me about each of the traditions and allowing me to photograph the event for the family. Here are some of my favorite images from the ceremony.

It's the little things, like 'Thank you' that make it worth it

Yesterday was a great day for Emanon Photography.  My business day started with a meeting with one of my brides and her mom for a wedding I will be shooting in two weeks.  We went over some of the details of the wedding and I had a chance to get to know them a little better as well.  They ended up buying me lunch and will probably be booking me soon for a Morning after the wedding family portrait session.

Later I met with another one of my brides whose wedding I will be photographing in mid November to go over some details with her.  I shot a family portrait session with her a few weeks ago and she surprised me with a thank you card and a gift certificate to a local restaurant to thank me for the photos.

Working as a photographer is quickly becoming the coolest job I could have ever imagined.  I can make my clients and their family members cry tears of joy with just a few clicks of my shutter.  It blows my mind, and I am grateful for all my clients and their support of this adventure I call Emanon Photography.

Thank you, to all my Past, Present, and Future Clients!!! -Pete
