This high school senior portrait session took place on the beach in Perdido Key. She was vacationing in Perdido Key with her family so she wanted the beach to be featured in the portraits. The day was just about perfect. We had plenty of sunshine to start off with and a nice breeze to keep things from feeling too muggy.
We started out shooting in around the shaded area of a beach pavilion so it wasn't too bright for her eyes. The beach sand can act like a huge reflector so I like to shoot in shade if possible. After we got the standard beach shots, she had one last wardrobe change into a long black dress. We had a great sunset so this was when we tried to get some dramatic looking shots.
