Capture Magic With a Family Photographer in Bradenton

Your everyday moments deserve to be captured, documented, and preserved forever. Time flies and kids don't stop growing up.

Family photography is so important for creating keepsakes that you'll literally cherish for the rest of your life. Whether you are vacationing in the area or are a Bradenton local like myself, you need family photos taken.

Hi, I'm Kelsey Jaeger, a Bradenton family photographer who loves capturing the magic of a family and the quirkiness that makes you unique. I love taking outdoor, authentic images of families interacting, playing, and expressing love.

No cheesy poses here. Just raw emotion to produce pure photos.

(Maybe just one or two cheesy poses)

Working With Bradenton FL Family Photographers

As a Bradenton local, I love exploring and finding the best spots to take family portraits to make it as fun as possible (which makes for the most meaningful photos).

There are tons of beautiful locations in the area to consider. Most of the time, we head to the beaches of Anna Maria Island for stunning photos on the beach as the sun sets behind us (usually Bean Point). The lighting is perfect almost every day of the year, making this a fantastic option.

Robinson Preserve can also be a great option, but there's a bit more walking involved to get to the more photogenic spots. The trails and tiny beaches around De Soto National Monument can also make for some gorgeous photos.

But if you have another location idea, please let me know. I love finding a destination that fits your family. Send me a message below so we can find the perfect spot and lock in your date. I can't wait to hear from you!

Kelsey Jaeger | Bradenton Family Photographer

Hi, I'm Kelsey Jaeger, one of the most passionate Bradenton family photographers around.

As a Bradenton local, I live just a few miles from Anna Maria Island, which is where I head for many of my photoshoots. Being on the coast, we get some of the most amazing sunsets on a regular basis, which is the time I always recommend to families.

I can't wait to meet you and your family and capture some beautiful moments that you'll hold onto forever.

Making Your Photo Shoot Easier

We all know it isn't easy to bring kids to a photo shoot and expect them to do what we want them to. That's why I love outdoor, candid family portraits. Kids get to play, run, and be themselves.

And parents can get on their level and interact in real ways, all the while I'm capturing these photos, these real moments that will mean far more than a posed photo any day.

Of course, I'll guide you through certain types of shots as well, but I like to move quickly to keep everyone engaged, keep everyone relaxed, and prevent any breakdowns.

Wardrop Tips for Family Photo Shoots

There are a few things I recommend you don't wear, such as clothing with logos, words, or graphics. Bright colors should also be avoided unless it's intentional for your style or theme.

And try to leave phones and wallets in the car so they aren't in your pockets. Check this post for more wardrobe tips and inspiration.
