I've never had family photos taken while on vacation, but I imagine I'd want it pretty much like this. On the beach as the sun is setting while we frolic and play. This special family is my own Brother and Sister-in-Law and their adorable family. As we vacationed together this year I offered to shoot their family photos. Fun and different from me being that I'm typically only shoot in the Midwest! And a challenge! Different lighting, ocean glare, white sand and of course, bright sun.
But I love a challenge!
These warm family images exude love, connectedness and a happy family. I hope not only can they now treasure their vacation memories but also have beautiful family images to last a lifetime.
Here are some favorites!
And always time for a little romance with one of the hottest couples I know! ;)
Crazily enough, this next "mistake shot" is actually one of my very favorites. The blur, the excitement of what is happening behind the blur and the light make me swoon. I don't expect everyone to love it, but I do.
How does that quote go ... "Don't be sad that it's over, be glad it happened." Vacation is over but these photos will last forever. Ahhhhh. I like that.
