Frequently Asked Questions
Where do we take the pictures?
Sun Shots Photography can take pictures on any beach. We regularly work on Clearwater Beach, Sand Key, Indian Rocks Beach, Indian Shores, Redington Beach, Madiera Beach, Treasure Island, St. Petersburg Beach, and Pass-a-Grille. If you are staying in a hotel on one of the Pinellas County beaches, we can meet there.
If not, we recommend Upham Beach, near St. Petersburg. Upham Beach offers miles of white-sand beach, boulders, and a pleasant garden. These all make nice backgrounds for your pictures. This is a public access beach with plenty of metered parking spaces, a concession stand, and bathrooms.
What times do you schedule our photoshoot?
Start times are based on the time the sun sets on the day of the photoshoot. We usually get started around 45 minutes prior to sunset and we will continue to shoot pictures in the dusklight. Night sessions will start 45 minutes after sunset.
What Should We Bring to the Photoshoot?
The only things you need to bring are a big smile. Sun Shots Photography provides props, costumes, and a cooler full of water bottles on ice. But if you have items like a special chair or beach toy, or prop item you want in your pictures, bring them along. We will work them into the photoshoot.
What should we wear?
Wear anything that you are comfortable in and is beach-appropriate. Sundresses, shorts, swimwear, casual tops, and polo shirts all work well. If you want to bring a change of clothing for different looks, Sun Shots Photography provides a changing tent for privacy.
We recommend wearing light-colored clothes. The color white and pastel colors look great against tanned skin.
