Meet our PCB Photographer: Stazia

Stazia has been taking photos for Smiles Beach Photo for the past seven years. Within her time, she has flourished into a versatile photographer specializing in children and babies. Over the years, her favorite area to create her portraits has been in the Sandpiper Beacon area. “I really enjoy recapturing the kids year after year, watching them grow up is beyond surreal!”

Stazia not only is onsite daily for daytime beach photos but she does her own even sunset bookings and takes all the sunset portraits every night at the Sandpiper Beacon. “It makes my job easier knowing that the guests rely on me daily for information and flexibility. So when I completed a session and a kiddo was napping, I will swing back after lunch to make sure the guest has a complete group photo.” In addition to being the main photographer onsite, she also assists with your viewing and purchasing. Pretty much she takes care of you from beginning to end, making sure every detail is to your liking! Check out her sample photos!

Perks of being a Sandpiper Guest: Getting photos made

If you are staying at the Sandpiper Beacon Resort, you probably are familiar with all of the amazing amenities onsite. Between the watersides, Tiki Bar, and beach service, it’s hard to want to leave the property! Well, we are adding to the list. Not only is our photographer on site daily to capture the unscheduled beach fun moments, but also is available for a more formal portrait taken by appointment during the breathtaking sunset over the beautiful Gulf waters.

So what is the feedback from customers about the updated location? “One, customers love that they have utilized our photography service before and they feel comfortable and trust that we will take care of them like last time. Also, customers really have been appreciative that they do not have to even leave their Resort. In prior years, we were located in Pier Park, but this location allows families to not have to deal with wasting time in traffic and the bonus is their  photos are always available for pick up before they checkout.”

When you arrive for photos, the location has plenty of wonderful dunes and scenic areas for photos. After your sunset session is complete, photos are ready to view in the Tiki Bar area.
