Sunny Isles Photographer at the Acqualina Resort
I arrived at the Acqualina Resort (heard many great things about the hotel) and it was a grey and rainy day. It didn’t matter for this family! When the emphasis is on the love and interaction between a family, no storm is going to affect that 😉 We began photographing indoors opposite a large window and after some time passed we were able to head outdoors for some photos. After playing around and giving each other piggy back rides, they ended with a game of basketball, my kind of people!
Photographing indoors is a great option when you have large windows and enough room indoors to accommodate your family. I’ve photographed indoors at several hotels where either the apartment inside is nicely decorated to be a suitable space for a photo session, or sometimes they have a space for an event that is not being used.
Make sure to clean the indoor space and place the couch or seats opposite the window. Be sure there are no distracting objects behind the subjects’ heads which can be very distracting. I sometimes will move furniture around a bit so I can sit people in the best possible place for optimum lighting.
The lobby of the hotel can sometimes work as a suitable space, again as along as there are large windows and not too many people around. Always double check with the hotel first to make sure its ok with them. Some hotels have a policy not to allow any photography on the premises.
