Bradenton Beach Photographers | Capturing Your Family Vacation

Bradenton Beach on Anna Maria Island is one of the most beautiful destinations in Southwest Florida. If you’re traveling to the area from out of town (or out of state), you deserve professional, beautiful, natural family portraits to remember this time. 

After all, your kids will only be this age once. By capturing beautiful photos on the beach, you'll be able to look back on these moments for decades to come.

And even if you’re a Bradenton local like myself, there’s no better place for your next set of family portraits or romantic couple photos than on the sugar-white sands of the island, with the emerald-colored Gulf of Mexico as a backdrop.

Where to Take Photos?

Bradenton Beach is a small town on the island of Anna Maria. Getting around to any other part of the island is relatively quick and simple.

I LOVE taking photos at Bean Point, which is at the northern tip of the island. This beach is less developed and far less crowded than other beaches, allowing us to get a lot of different shots without anyone else around.

Otherwise, there are plenty of small, quiet beach access points closer to Bradenton Beach that are very beautiful as well.

What to Wear

Make sure to consider your outfits before the photo shoot. Wear something that feels like "you." But at the same time, if you need some pointers, I recommended clothing that:

  • Doesn't have logos, words, or graphics
  • Isn't bright or too colorful
  • Doesn't have crazy patterns

Solid, neutral colored-clothing allows the subject (you) and the backdrop to really shine, rather than drawing the eyes to your shirt.

Also, leave phones and wallets in the car if you can, because they can often be seen when they are in your pockets. You can check out this page for more tips.
