At the beginning of June I got to spend the weekend with my sweet friend and client in Florida! Amanda splits her time between Nashville and Florida, and since she recently has started working more there, she wanted some updated pictures to reflect this new season of her career. I’ve done several lifestyle branding sessions with Amanda, and they are always fun and reflect who she is!
We started our session at Doreen’s Cup of Joe in Marco Island, Florida. Amanda wanted pictures during brunch as a way to show community and friendships. This quaint and charming breakfast joint was the perfect location, especially since their blue walls complement Amanda’s branding for SOWBO.
After brunch we headed to Downtown Naples for some portraits around the city! Amanda is gorgeous in her red dress, and I love the confidence and joy she exudes in these pictures! One of my favorite things about this Florida shoot compared to our Nashville sessions, is that everything about this shoot is colorful and vibrant! I think there is something about being surrounded by sunshine and palm trees that makes everything feel brighter! We took pictures at cafes, in front of condos, and by storefronts, and I love how they turned out!
As the sun was setting, we headed back to Amanda’s home on Marco Island and took some pictures with a boat by her dock and at a pier. These images are so fun and carefree, and I love the use of nautical stripes! Some of my favorite images from Amanda’s shoot are below!
