Sarasota Area beaches are world renowned and offer fantastic backdrops for your lifestyle and portrait sessions. West facing sunsets, sugary sands, jetties, grasses and tropical flora all add to the beauty of the beach.

While beach sessions can be magical, bear in mind that the beach may have unpredictable conditions even on a sunny day (high winds, crowds, high waves) and may not always be suitable for your vision.

Lido Beach

Lido Beach, close to the beautiful St. Armands Circle, is known for the wide flat beach front and sugary white sand. Although the beach tends to have high crowds at sunset, the dunes offer some privacy and a short walk up the beach can be quieter and worth the trip.

Parking is limited and crowds may be difficult to work around. Not suggested for sessions during spring break, weekends or busy season.
