It's no secret that I LOVE the beach. I think (no, I know) that I could live there...as long as my family was with me. ;) I would LOVE to live on the beach for the summer and invite all of my lovely clients to visit for beach photos!!
Because, one of my favorite things about the beach is beach photos! By now my husband and kiddos have learned that a trip to the beach will not be complete without a mini beach session. And lucky for me, they are mostly cooperative. We did have a few grouchy moments (from EACH of them individually), but for less than 40 minutes in SUPER hot and humid weather I am SO pleased with how they turned out.
My family...These people are my heart and soul! We had such a fun trip...can't wait to do it again!
My parents joined us for our trip this year, and my mom's birthday happened to fall during the week. So, for her birthday, she asked for a group shop, a shot of her and my dad and one with her, my dad and the grandkids. I can't wait to see the gallery wall she makes with these!
I think the shot of them with my kiddos is precious.
The group shot was a rather funny experience. I originally positioned people, set the camera settings and tried to have a passerby, focus and shoot. I wasn't too pleased with that one, as many of us were missing feet. SO, I decided to position the camera on the railing of the boardwalk and use the self-timer (which I had to google to remember how to set, as I don't use it that often). Because it was on the railing of the boardwalk, I had to tiptoe down the boardwalk and then quickly get into position (as I only had 10 seconds!). I think it's perfect! Hopefully a photo my mom will really treasure.
Tyler is our oldest son...8 years old! In the first one I asked him to try and keep his eyes open, as he often squints his eyes up when he smiles. Hasn't quite nailed the "natural eyes" yet.
Lucas is our middle child and is 6 years old. He can be my moody child when it comes to pictures. So, you never know what you're going to get when it comes to him! I often here "I'm done picturing", from this little guy.
