Chloe | Ballerina | St Augustine Senior Pictures
We had the great opportunity of shooting Chloe’s senior photos. Chloe is a talented ballerina that attends the St Augustine Dance Academy. During the photo shoot we walked around downtown St.Augustine and around the Lightner museum. She had two different outfits that express her life as a ballerina and a student graduating from high school.
Favorite Studios is your local Florida family beach photographer. These are pictures of the marvelous McCormick family who gathered in Amelia Island for some fun memories together. Jerry Favorite had the honor to photograph this great group of kids, parents and grandparents.
Amelia Island, Florida Family Beach Photographer + Photo Album
Blues and grays mixed with pretty patterns made for casual yet classy outfits. Florida’s natural environment of warm browns, greens and soft blues are picture perfect.
Trees like this great old oak, sand dunes and the Atlantic Ocean are a timeless backdrop and a perfect place to play and get lots of fun photos.
These pictures were used in their family photo album they received. Our “Favorite Portrait Package” is a great value, the best investment of any vacation. The photo package includes includes the session on location, photo gallery online, all high resolution adjusted images with print rights, plus a premium 20-page 8×8 photo album. An ideal way to always remember those most cherished family moments.
We just love to photograph amazing families all along our East Coast. From Amelia Island, Jacksonville Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach, Saint Augustine Beach to on down to Palm Coast, and everything in between. Vilano Beach and Crescent Beach are two of our favorite beaches for family photos. If you’re looking for a little variety in addition to just beautiful sandy beaches, consider these two options. Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in north Jacksonville by Mayport Naval Station offers wooded nature trails, a lake setting, a great beach walkover and sand dunes. Washington Oaks Gardens State Park south of River to Sea Preserve by Marineland has a lovely garden side and a beautiful beach side with coquina rocks. These family pictures were taken in the popular vacation destination of Amelia Island, Florida.
The Rodey family from Maryland traveled to Florida for their summer vacation and was looking for a St Augustine family beach photographer. We are so happy they found Favorite Photography and chose us to capture their memories.
Saint Augustine Beach Photos + Family Album
With three children, plus spouses and a total of 5 grandkids all traveling from around the U.S., scheduling a family photo session is a great way to remember this special time. Plus it’s lots of fun taking pictures on the beach!
Blues, greens, pinks and coral colors looked wonderful in the beach photos. Each family coordinated their outfits without being to matchy-matchy. Mixing solids with pretty patterns is a nice way to create balance when picking out the wardrobe for your family portrait. Natural white beach sand, soft greens and tans of the sea oats and blues of the ocean waves and sky are a perfect backdrop.
We love photographing outside, especially during the golden hour. Because as the sun is setting, we get most beautiful natural light on the beach. Plus it tends to be a tad bit cooler in the early evening, with a nice breeze… and we’ll take all the help we can to beat a little summer heat and intense sunshine.
Finally, what better way to preserve these cherished moments at the beach than with one of our premier family photo albums. Our custom made albums are made with ultra thick pages, archival photographic printing and hard bound cover. They are a durable, Italian flush-mount style that lays flat when opened. We have a variety of cover materials used in a traditional book binding process. Made to last for generations. Families love these keepsake albums. Forever reminder of their St Augustine, Florida vacation and precious time with loved ones.
Here is a sample of some of our Favorite Photography photo album cover materials. Either a gray linen, natural linen, soft metallic silver, brown leather, black leather, off-white textured or country-chic burlap.
Jerry had the pleasure and honor to photograph Shequila and Marcus’ lovely downtown St Augustine family photos. The kids are super cute and so much fun… what a blessing!
Historic St Augustine is a photographer’s dream – full of character, textures and colors for the most beautiful backdrops. We enjoy shooting around the big Castillo de San Marcos fort, along the intracoastal waterway on down towards the boat docks and Bridge of Lions, and over to the landmark carousel.
In addition to taking Shequila and Marcus’ family pictures, Jerry photographed their engagement session in Saint Augustine, then together with Karen, captured their beautiful Amelia Island wedding with both photography and videography.
Following a couple’s happy journey is amazing and stays with us forever.
Tristan was such an easy guy to photograph for his senior portrait session. He has such a cool, relaxed style and looked great hanging around downtown Saint Augustine. From the docks, down cobblestone streets, along the scenic intracoastal waterway and ending at the historical Castillo de San Marcos fort. His mom and dad surely cherish these senior photos which document their son’s journey of life. We wish Tristan all the very best!
Thankfully we have such mild winters in Florida that getting awesome beach family pictures is possible pretty much year-round. And around the holidays is a wonderful time to get the family together to make memories. One of our previous wedding couples, Shannon and Matt, brought their adorable baby boy to the beach along with grandparents to capture these precious moments.
Being a family photographer can be challenge (having three kids ourselves, we know what some of those might be), but it’s one of the most rewarding and fun jobs ever!!!
They don’t call Florida the “sunshine state” for no reason! It is generally very bright out on the beach which is why recommend the “golden hour” before sunset for the most beautiful pictures. Morning time, during sunrise, is also an option, but that works well if your family are all “early birds”. With young children, it’s always best to work around their schedule as we want them to be happy and energetic. Trip plans and rainy weather (look out for sudden thunderstorms) can also affect the timing of a perfect family photo session. No matter the day, season or time, we will prevail.
Karen enjoyed photographing the Hicks family at Vilano Beach when they visited Saint Augustine. And we thank them for letting us capture a little slice of their life!
Our adorable test subjects had so much fun during a trial-run with our elegant, paper floral backdrop and cute, “live bunnies” for our upcoming Spring Special.

Every summer we get fabulous families traveling from all over the country (and even “locals”) that enjoy vacationing in St. Augustine. They take advantage of our beautiful beaches, relaxing atmosphere and just good old “family time”. These are the moments we love to photograph!
Jerry had the pleasure to photograph the wonderful Teubers and their extended family during their vacation when everyone was able to get together for some R&R. It was the perfect opportunity for a great family portrait session.
Enjoy a walk through one of Jacksonville’s best places, the beautiful Walter Jones Historical Park and Mandarin Museum. We did! The natural settings, big oaks with Spanish moss dangling from limbs, magnolia trees and historic buildings make a perfect location for family pictures. Here’s some of our favorite kids and the lovely Lott Family!
