Capturing the essence of family love is my thing. Not always cheesing at the camera are always my favorite shots. Not saying that composing that great portrait all posed just right is not beautiful but really I just like them to be doing their thing and step back.
I was so happy to get to finally photograph Lisa’s family this time as we have photographed her sister with their mom at the same spot which is very special to them. This time we included dads mom/dad and brother.
I truly love this beach even if I have to go thru red tape with paperwork with 2 companies to get a LEGAL permit to shoot there… its SO worth it I tell you! Low tide is the best.
I know as kids grow older the photo shoots become less and less. I start to see them infrequently as it used to be every year now as they become teenagers its every 2 years. Still finding it important to get them together. I know that when we are all old and hopefully still in touch
they will say “melinda I am so happy they we did this thru the years… as I look back now, they are off to college, I am so thankful to have these memories on my walls!”
So here is to booking the appointment even IF your husband does not really want to be there ( but who’s does right?)
Did I mention the crazy fun uncle? How fun to have him there…
I know they will be happy I made them take a walk together these shots were so sweet!
It was SO dark by this shot…. gotta love the 3400 iso at sun down shoot it open and fast.
