Alys Beach Senior Portraits

Happy Wednesday peeps! Today I'm super excited to share some teaser images (and video) from this senior photo session at Alys Beach with Vivian - another one of my Class of 2023 Influencers! Keep scrolling to view the teaser video with all her stunning images!

What's it like at Alys Beach?

For Vivian's senior session, she decided on 3 amazing locations along 30A Florida. We photographed at Alys Beach, Rosemary Beach and Seaside. Today's feature is going to cover our session at Alys Beach and why it is such a popular vacation rental getaway and also a destination location for senior portraits.

With it's Mediterranean style and beautiful gulf views, homeowners of Alys Beach enjoy secluded courtyards and a friendly garden atmosphere in the community. Vivian has been visiting Alys Beach since she was just a little girl and she loves the charm and the luxurious escape from everyday life it provides.

Senior Portraits at Alys Beach

Vivian is super fun to photograph - she has this easy-going, fun spirit and is great at moving with the camera. For her senior session at Alys Beach, she showed me some really cute spots and I of course fell in love as this was my very first time every running across these beautiful spots.

It was a beautiful sunshiny day on the day we photographed, and due to scheduling, we had to shoot mid morning, which isn't the "norm" here for SOWAL county, but the weather was beautiful and we were lucky to have somewhat cooler temps. With all the gorgeous sun and white structures of Alys Beach, there was no need for me to use my Godox lights, we simply used the available light and a reflector for these shots.

What to wear for your Senior Portrait Session at Alys Beach

How cute is this dress? I absolutely love the royal blue color Vivian choose to wear for this location. The color just pops against the unique Greek village style of Alys Beach.

Vivian always the best accessories for her wardrobe! I love the burst of yellow sunshine in both her earrings and even her shoes. Those accessories pull the look together for a fabulous high-fashion vacation vyb.

Side note: I cannot believe it's already October... Between photo sessions in Florida and ones in Michigan, this year has gone by super fast!

I am already booking up for the last part of this year, but I do have a few session available for class of 2023 seniors if need be - but lmk asap if you are interested because the available dates go quick.

I'm loving the blue on blue tones with the dress at Alys Beach.
