There is nothing like the first beach session of the season! It was a little chilly on this night but luckily these kiddos weren’t phased by it. Mom asked me if her kiddos were more uncooperative than others and the answer is a definitive “NO.” While the beach is a gorgeous location, there is nothing I do that is crueler than asking young kids to sit just feet from the sand and ocean but not play in it. So, as long as kids are willing to participate (even reluctantly) I am having a good night!
I love that this extended family does yearly photos together when Nana and Papa when are in town. Photos with grandparents are probably the one weak part in my photography game, when it comes to my own family. They all have such a unique relationship with each grandparent and I need to make it a point to start documenting it more. These portrait sessions are so flexible and can be used for so many different occasions. For example, this one covered Extended family, kids with grandparents, family, sibling and even a little birthday shout out to Miss B.
Well the weather forecasters really pulled one over on us for this session. We went from cancelled to tentative to on all in the matter of about 6 hours. We ultimately decided to start the session earlier than scheduled. I feared that the forecast-ed rain we would mean that there would be clouds affecting the light. Well, wouldn’t you know it, we showed up to blue skies and the sun a’ shining. Not gonna lie, it is tricky to work with a large group in full sunlight! Thankfully we had some extremely patient kids and plenty of volunteers to hold up my enormous reflector.
I just love doing these extended family sessions even when the weather has me sweatin’. The only though on my mind being “how on earth I am going to light all these people evenly.” My favorite thing is seeing in print everything that has come from two people creating a life together. I hope all these beautiful faces find a place on Grammy’s wall!
