Florida Family Photographer Capturing the Everyday Magical Moments

Every day is an opportunity to make memories with your family! Whether they are normal, everyday moments, or once-in-a-lifetime family experiences, these moments are magical and worth capturing.

My name is Kelsey Jaeger, a Florida family photographer, and I focus on authentic photos for those in the Bradenton/Sarasota area, as well as vacationing families here in Southwest Florida.

When thinking about your family photography experience, we can do it right in your own home, or head to the beach, a nature preserve, or somewhere else you love to explore. We can capture beautiful, authentic, family lifestyle photography for you to cherish forever.

Planning Your Florida Family Photography Session

Your family photoshoot is entirely up to you! There are countless destinations for outdoor family photography here in the Bradenton/Sarasota area. The beaches on Anna Maria, Longboat, and Lido Keys are perfect for family beach photography during the sunset.

Nature preserves and parks like Emerson Point, Robinson, and Celery Fields provide beautiful backdrops as you walk, hike, picnic, or play.

Hi, I'm Kelsey Jaeger

I'm family photographer in Florida that loves taking outdoor, candid portraits of families, both local and those who are on vacation.

I live in the Sarasota area with my husband and two boys, and we love exploring the islands that line the Gulf Coast in search of the best beaches and photo spots.

I can't wait to hear from you so we can plan the perfect family photoshoot for you.

What to Wear

It's best to avoid bright-colored clothing as well as clothes with crazy patterns. Even checkered flannel can look a bit busy in the photos. I often suggest neutral, light colors and solid or simple patterns.

Also, avoid clothing with large graphics, words, or logos. And try to leave phones and wallets in the car (since you can often see the shape of them in pockets).

Of course, it's best to wear something that feels like YOU. So feel free to wear something bright or patterned if it's an intentional choice. But here are a few extra tips and inspiration if you need help.

As a Florida family photographer, there's nothing I love more than capturing family connection, play, exploration, and authentic moments.
