Senior Photos in Panama City Beach

Senior Portraits in Panama City Beach

Check out this beautiful senior session of Nicole! She’s a part-time local, calling GA & PCB both home half the time (her family owns a condo here in PCB) and she wanted to take her senior portraits in Panama City Beach- in one of her favorite places! The soft white sandy beaches of the Gulf offers endless beautiful backdrops to explore and create with – basically a photographer’s dream! We did this particular session in St. Andrews State Park – a beautiful area surrounded by views with the Gulf of Mexico on one side, and St. Andrews Bay on the other!

Keeping portraits relaxed & natural

In our initial consultation, Nicole and her mom specified that Nicole liked a very natural, “different” look – which vibes perfectly with the way I love to photograph! I’m a big fan of adding in movement into images and tend to shy away from the traditional still, posed portraits. I’ve learned over the years that when you’re in motion, you stop overthinking and respond naturally – and that’s where the sweet spot is in producing relaxed feeling portraits.

The perfect coastal outfit for Panama City Beach

Okay can we just acknowledge that Nicole nailed her looks – I’m obsessed with this crop top/flowy pant combo! She said her pants were from Aerie (love) and they added an effortless, coastal vibe to the session . I recommend at least 2-3 outfit changes for senior photoshoot to add a ton of variety to the final result. Let’s show off your personality through your fits!

Ending senior portrait in the water

Nicole’s last outfit was a long and flowy dress – perfect for catching the sun as she got lower in the sky over the gulf. My favorite way to wrap up any and ALL beach sessions is to get in the water, and Nicole was totally down to get in and enjoy the gentle waves and beautiful views!

Panama City Beach Sunsets

As the sun dipped below the horizon, casting a warm glow over St. Andrews State Park, I couldn’t help but reflect on how senior portraits in Panama City Beach capture the essence of a unique and cherished moment in life. Nicole’s session was a testament to the beauty and versatility of this stunning coastal backdrop.
