This is a common service requested here in Tampa Bay. We live surrounded by water and are visited by families for vacation. With beautiful sunsets like these, who could resist getting a family beach sunset session. This was about 1.25 hours of shooting time with a little bit of time before and after to set up lights. For beautiful sunset family pictures a photographer should really have lights. It’s hard to balance out the people and the background with the intense sun in the background and shade on the front of all the people facing the camera in the image. This family was on vacation: mom, dad, and 2 teenage daughters. We lucked out with a stunning colorful sunset! Doesn’t this family look so cute!
