Here is a quick peek into the portrait session I did with the Nowak family, they were such a sweet family and I’m so glad they contacted me to do their family pictures on the beach.
Baby butts. If you don’t like ’em, then look away. If you’re like me and love squishy baby rolls, then you’re in luck.
The Nowak’s traveled all the way from Maryland with their 15 month old in tow on the first plane ride as a family. This was also Vivian’s first beach experience and I was SO SO honored to capture such a sweet memory for them. The beach is really such a great place to do family pictures, and I’m realizing this more and more! What a better place to be when the little ones get a little cranky because who can be made after splashing around in the water?
Abbie and Greg were also spending their 4 year anniversary in Charleston – an even better reason to get their family pictures taken! I am so glad that they reached out and that the weather was on our side.
We started with the pictures on the beach around 7pm, just when the light was at its peak ‘golden light’ ness. Sometimes later summer nights can collide with early bedtimes, but sometimes its worth it (especially if there is ICE CREAM later..)
Aside from the lighting, when I do family pictures, I give a little guidance and a lot of running around after the kiddos. I love to let them just do what they do best, explore!!!
Did you travel to the beach during the summer? Did you have any family pictures made?
Do you have any tips for anyone planning their first trip with the little one?
