Lifestyle family photo session at the beach in Connecticut
I can’t believe Summer photography sessions at the beach are coming to an end here in Connecticut. I swear each summer flies by faster than the last.
I met this fun family at one of my favorite photo session locations on the CT shoreline on a beautiful warm evening, just before sunset. I love allowing families the space to soak up each other’s company and enjoy their time together. Walking along the beach, being silly and just having fun.
Throw in a little goofiness and a whole lot of laughter with those child portraits, real smiles are so much better than “cheese” faces.
Photographing Moms alone with their children is a favorite of mine. So often Moms are the ones behind the camera capturing their family and documenting their memories. I love to get Mamas in the frame with their children, because you were there too Mama! You were making memories with them. Let me capture the love you have for your children, with you in the frame.
I spun around and saw this adorable moment unfolding between Mom and her little boy. I don’t even think Mom was aware that I was snapping away, and it has become one of my favorite moments from their family photography session. In the blink of an eye she is going to be looking up at him.
I love to make sure to capture Mom and Dad alone, together during family photo sessions. The love between parents is where this all started, and it deserves to be documented. Plus, I can’t think of a single person who doesn’t wish they had more photographs of their parents. Moms and Dads, your relationship together is such an important part of your family’s story, make sure you take a moment to celebrate you! Your children will thank you.
When Mom really wants a portrait of her two children together, so they suck it up and love on each other for some sibling photos together.
