We finished off Carolyn Grace’s Watch Me Grow plan with a trip to the park.  I always have to laugh at CG because she is a little firecracker!  She has big opinions and is not afraid to share them!  Her mom and dad are so laid back, but little miss is beyond feisty!  I will say that she wears all her emotions on her face though, so I doubt she will ever be able to lie!

What a difference a year makes!  Last year, we photographed their maternity session in the cotton and this year we did family portraits with a baby who is nearly walking!!  I love that we made it personal to them and did the session on their family farm.  These are the things that years from now will be such a part of her childhood memories, it makes it all the more special!

The Long family (no relation) was overdue for a family portrait, so we caught up one day after work and played in the park.  Little man is absolutely precocious and had me in constant giggles.  Such a big personality in such a little guy!

Families aren’t perfect.  There is no family out there who is 100% on point all the time.  I adore families who embrace that and since the Gonzalez family has three babies under the age of four, there is a lot of “imperfect” moments!  I love that the large wall portrait they chose shows the individual personality of each child and really captures how their family is at this point in time!

I am not a morning person.  I am not one to get up early unless I have to, so I totally understand when clients are reluctant to book a sunrise session at the beach.  BUT… I absolutely adore photographing family beach portraits at sunrise.  Yes, I know that seems wrong, but the light is so beautiful, the beach is deserted and we have all the sand just for us and the birds.  Plus, its the coolest time of the day, so if you want to avoid the heat, its the perfect time of day for a family portrait session at the beach.

Since we caught low tide at Summer Camp Beach, we not only had an amazing portrait session, but we spent the half hour after the session exploring the tidal pools to see fish, scallops and crabs already busy with their day.  It was one of those perfect, peaceful mornings and I love that part of their memory of their family portrait session at the beach includes that time of relaxation and exploration!
