If you’re looking for a family photographer Marco Island, I hope you’ll consider Laura Michele Photos.

Here is a gorgeous family photo session I shot recently on Marco Island.  The sunset was breathtaking, and this family was as wonderful as could be.  Summer weather in Southwest Florida makes for some tricky scheduling, but when it’s not raining at sunset, it’s doing this!  The lovely Garrity family was on vacation in Marco Island.  Would you believe this was their first family photo session since their oldest were little?  So glad they have these beautiful memories captured forever!

In addition to family beach photos, we offer on-location sessions from Marco Island to Captiva Island, and everywhere in between.  We listen to your needs for the session, and then make recommendations for locations to meet your needs.  Please consider Laura Michele Photos for your family photography needs.

 

Family Reunion Photos | Naples Beach

Family Reunion Photos | Naples Beach

Family reunion photos are becoming very popular, and I can see why!  And what better place to have a family reunion than Naples Beach or Fort Myers Beach?  More and more, families are going on vacation together and capturing their memories with professional photos.

My family was big on reunions, and family reunion photos are some of my favorites to look back on!  Seeing those images brings you right back to that trip filled with love and laughter!  The memories of your whole family together are priceless.  And nothing can spark a memory quite like a photograph!  Professional family reunion photos were probably never considered when I was growing up, and sadly, many of our precious images are showing their age.

Laura Michele Photos offers heirloom-quality prints and products made to withstand the test of time!  We also offer digital images so that you can always keep an extra copy of your precious images safe.  Family reunions don’t happen every day (or even every year!), so join the latest trend and have your family reunion photos professionally made!

This gorgeous family was visiting Naples, Florida from all over the United States, and wanted their precious memories preserved for generations to come.  These are some of my favorite sessions, because they become several sessions in one.  We of course capture the whole group together, but then we get to break out into tons of other sets.  I love getting images of grandparents with all of their grandkids together at once!  Plus, it’s a great time to get an updated family portrait of individual families, as well as photos of the kids.  These family reunion photos make AWESOME wall grouping displays, and the gift ideas are endless!

Fort Myers Beach Photographer Laura Michele Photos captures family vacation photos for this gorgeous family

Working around Mother Nature during the Summer months in Southwest Florida can often be a challenge, especially for outdoor family photo sessions.  This turned out to be the case with this family on vacation from Cincinnati this summer.  After our previously-scheduled sunset session was rained out, we opted for a morning session instead.  If you’re at all familiar with Fort Myers Beach’s summertime weather, you know there’s always a pretty good chance of showers at sunset.  But the sunsets are just breathtaking, so it’s definitely worth a shot.

For this family who was on vacation on Fort Myers Beach, our sunset session didn’t quite work out.  But the following morning was just perfect for their family photo session!  And who doesn’t love at least a 10 degree difference in temperature?  Ha!  This session was back in June (I know, I know…I’m seriously the worst blogger ever.  Clearly.), so even at 8:30am is was scorching hot!  We did our best to stay in the shade, but what gorgeous images came as a result.  Here are just a few of the highlights from this beautiful family photo session at Lovers Key State Park, Fort Myers Beach, Florida.  Enjoy!

If your family is planning a vacation to Southwest Florida, please consider Laura Michele Photos to help document and preserve this precious family memory.  Even if you’re already here, please contact me for any last-minute openings!

Welcome back to Laura Michele Photos!  Today we have an awesome family reunion session to share.  This family came to visit the Fort Myers, FL area around Thanksgiving, and wanted to get some photos of the whole family together.  Being a military family, they weren’t sure when everyone would be in the same area again, so they wanted to cherish their time together, and capture it in photographs.  The grandparents of the family live in Southwest Florida part of the year, and spend the rest of their time in West Virginia.  Their son and daughter and their families came to visit them here for Thanksgiving, and Laura, their daughter, contacted me for the session.  I was thrilled to do it!  These are some of my favorite kinds of sessions.

The “T” Family Portraits | Fort Myers Photographers

Fort Myers photographers are always on the lookout for stunning backdrops for their family photo sessions.  This place turned out to be the perfect place for an outdoor photo session in Southwest Florida!  While it’s one of my favorite places to visit with my own family, I never considered it to be a beautiful backdrop for family photos.  Boy, was I wrong!  The Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve was our location of choice, and I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful family to compliment such a lovely setting.  Funny enough, the Slough Preserve was where I earned my first 1st Place award in photography many years ago as an amateur photographer.  The prize was an annual parking sticker to all of the parks in Fort Myers, Sanibel, Captival, and surrounding areas, and it part of what pushed me to become a professional photographer!

Ah, enough about me.  Back to the gorgeous T family!  They really look like professional models, don’t they?  Mom is a Principal at a local school, and Dad works in real estate.  And those boys…how handsome are they??  The whole family was so wonderful, too!  This session was done before Christmas (I know, I have a lot of catching up to do!), and I just love how the leaves were changing colors.  This isn’t always the case here in Southwest Florida, so it’s always a treat.  I am sharing a few of the gorgeous images from this family photo session.  I hope you enjoy!

Summertime is a tricky time for a Sanibel photographer!  The weather forecast is just about always “50% chance for rain; scattered PM thunderstorms”.  Every single day.  Not to mention the 100 degree temps.  Hey, we’re lucky that the hurricanes have missed us, so I can’t complain!

This day was one of the rainy ones, but luckily it was off-and-on sun showers.  This family included a handsome 5-month-old boy, and I know from experience how hard it is to prepare the little ones for a session.  The last thing you want to do is reschedule, especially if you’ve already arrived!  Since we were already on the beach when it started to rain, the only thing to do was duck under the trees.  Thankfully it wasn’t raining too hard.  So during each break in the showers, we would run out from our cover and snap a few shots.  Then we’d duck back in when it started again.  Rinse, and repeat.  It was quite a mini-adventure!  But I’m happy to say that we got all of our shots in, and just in time for the torrential downpour.  Just as I was crossing back over the Sanibel Causeway, the rain started coming down so hard that I couldn’t see in front of me!

Here are just a few of the adorable pictures we were able to get on this not-so-perfect day.  I think they turned out pretty perfect anyway.  🙂

Mommy & Me | Fort Myers Family Photographer

I’m so excited to share a few of the awesome photos from this Mommy & Me session in Fort Myers.  This mother and her daughter are absolutely beautiful!  This park in Fort Myers is one of my favorites!  The landscape is just gorgeous, with full trees to provide lots of shade on swelteringly hot days in Southwest Florida summertime.

I couldn’t have chosen better models for this session myself. Both of these lovely ladies were like seasoned pros.  The bond they share was unmistakable.  They had such a fun time taking photos, and that just makes me love my job even more!  Have a look for yourself at these beautiful ladies.  Hope you enjoy!

Laura Michele Photos is a Sanibel photographer, specializing in all kinds of portrait and lifestyle photography.   Happy Wednesday to everyone!  I hope you all are having a wonderful week.  School is out for my kids here in Southwest Florida, so I’ve been trying to balance everything.  I designed my own planner pages so that they could cover all aspects of my life (kids, family, photography, etc), and I’m happy to say that I’m actually using it this time!  I’m one of those people who buys those expensive planner refills at the beginning of each year, and uses it for about 3 days before I just stop looking at them.  I’m also one of those people who benefits greatly from having hand-written lists, and checking off completed tasks…so I’m not sure why I can’t stick with it.  Hopefully this time I will! Anyway, enough about the chaos that is my life!  Today’s post is about another session I had in March (still trying to catch up on my blog!), back when the temperature was still bearable in Sanibel.  This mother and her son were so adorable!  The bond they had was unmistakeable, and I think it really shows in these photos.  It was so hard to choose just a few photos to showcase in this post.  They had such a great energy that I just loved all of their images!  I hope you enjoy them, too.  🙂

Once again I have fallen way behind in my blog postings.  Thankfully, I am not behind in my photo editing, so I have many stories to tell.  Hopefully I can get them all up on the blog soon!

This is the “S” family, and I worked with them back at the end of March (I told you I was behind!).  Theirs was my first mini-session of the day out on beautiful Sanibel Island at the lighthouse.  This is one of my favorite spots to shoot because of the variety it offers.  It’s absolutely beautiful there!  This day was perfect, but particularly in the morning.  The sun was so warm, and the breeze still a bit cool.  Now that it’s the end of May, I really long for the March weather!

Here are just a few of the photos I took of this beautiful family of three.
