Taking Stunning Vacation Portraits

Looking at Pitts' breathtaking beach photographs, it no surprise that she started receiving more and more calls for family portraits on the beach. Soon, she reimagined her studio to appeal to the families who vacation along the Florida panhandle each year. Pitts discusses how she makes her signature images look less planned and more dramatic.

"I don't tell them exactly where to go. I set them up to create a moment," she says. A moment becomes a memory that hangs forever on the family's wall.

She also shares some technique and lighting tips and explains how she achieves stress free sessions, because after all, the family is on vacation.
