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.

Smyrna Dunes Park, New Smyrna Beach, FL Family Portrait Photographer: The Maxwell Family

Last Monday, I had a great family photo session with the Maxwell Family.  They were visiting New Smyrna Beach for vacation and had seen some of my photographs taken at Smyrna Dunes Park with  the Ponce DeLeon Lighthouse, and Ponce Inlet in the background, and they wanted to try to get some photos for their family.  I shot at a few location around the inlet to make sure to get shots with the Ocean, the Dunes, and the Inlet and Lighthouse in the background.  I also tried some special lighting techniques on some of the light house photos as the sun was starting to set, there was a lot of clouds blocking the sun, so it did not work out quite as I was thinking, but I do like the results that I got.  Here are some of my favorite shots from the family portrait session.

New Smyrna Beach, FL Photographer: The Burch Family

Last Sunday morning I met the Burch family in New Smyrna Beach to photograph their entire family. They were a fun group to work with, several generations of family members from the youngest a set of twins who were only a few months old, all the way up to the Grandparents/Great Grandparents. These are some of my favorite photographs of the group.

New Smyrna Beach Family Photography- 4 Generations

Last wednesday I met up with the Wayman family to make their family portraits on the beach in New Smyrna Beach, FL.  There were 4 generations of women as part of this session.  It is always cool for me when I can photograph a family and see the likenesses between the generations.  These are some of my favorite photographs from the session. (Also, kinda a funny side note, this session was at North Beach Community Park in New Smyrna Beach, there was another photographer shooting a family session when I got there, and guess what, as I was finishing up, a 3rd photographer showed up with another family.  I guess my secret photo location has gotten out into the public.)

Have a great day!

Stay tuned, I've got atleast 2 more family sessions this week, and a wedding next week, so there are going to be some more awesome photos posted here soon.


Here is the cool part... (Family Photo Baby Announcement)

Check out the last blog post, I said that the family I shot had a cool announcement that they were making... Well, I knew what it was, but this morning my client emailed me, that they had made the card for the announcement, check it out...

That's Right.... The Millers are having their second set of twins!!!

I'm so glad I was able to shoot these photos.  It was a really fun session.

Thank You Lynel, Brett, Devin, and Hope, and the new Twins!... It was a lot of fun, I'm glad you love all your photographs.

I'm photographing graduations at UCF this week. That means I'll be photographing around 6,000 graduates. Along with the rest of the team from GradImages we will probably take close to 26,000 photographs at UCF during 4 main ceremonies, and at least 1 smaller ceremony for students in 1 major.

Good Luck Class of 2011!

If you happen to be graduating from UCF, make sure to stop by the white tent outside the arena before you go inside to line up for your graduation ceremony.
