Family Photography at the Beach in Waterford, CT

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.

Extended Family Photography CT | Connecticut Family Photographer

Documenting the love during extended family photography sessions is such a blast.

Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins all gathered together on a sunny summer day. Blowing bubbles and playing ring around the rosie.

Extended family sessions are such a wonderful way of documenting generations all together in the same frame. These images become keepsakes to pass down for generations to come.

I like to capture a few more posed images in the beginning while younger children are still warming up to the photography session and tend to stand still with a little more ease. Lollipops are also a great tool for this. 

And then we let loose. Blow bubbles, play ring around the rose, tag. I love to capture everyone enjoying their time together during large family sessions without a ton of emphasis on heavy posing. Grouping together for some more posed shots can still be done in a relaxed and candid fashion. 

Below are some of my favorite moments from this Extend Family Photography session in Guildford, CT

Lifestyle Family Photography with Rebecca Lynne Photography

Well first, what is LIfestyle Photography? To me, lifestyle photography is photography without all of the stress. It isn't worrying about children sitting still in a small studio. I encourage children to run and play, Daddy's to toss their kids into the air, Mom's to twirl in the sunlight with their daughter's (and sons!)
It isn't about crossing your fingers that your children will look at the camera and smile. It is all about enjoying your time together as a family, while I join in on the fun and take photographs along the way. All of the smiles and laughs will happen naturally.

I will give gentle guidance if needed if you're feeling nervous in front of the camera. But honestly, just let loose and enjoy your family! Give hugs and kisses, pick wildflowers, splash in the ocean. Life pulls us in so many directions, use this time to slow down and enjoy each other. Use the photographs to plaster the walls of your home with beautiful images of your love. Create a photo book to snuggle up on the couch and flip through again and again.

Your life is so beautiful and it deserves to be documented.

Before Our Session: 

We will chat about location ideas. I have lots of suggestions and I love to explore new locations as well. I also have a client guide that talks a bit more about how the session will go and also has some outfit suggestions.

Your session fee books your session and gets you on my calendar.

During Our Session:

When we meet for our session, I like to chat a bit before we jump in.  I mean honestly, I just love to chat in general.

With all of my sessions, I never expect everyone to be looking at the camera and smiling to have the perfect portrait.  I encourage running and jumping, hugging and kissing. Connecting with and loving on each other.
I never want you to feel pressured to perform or be forced to give me fake smiles.
You will leave our session feeling like you just had a fun afternoon with your family, and a photographer happened to be there to capture timeless moments for you.
I can't count how many times parents have contacted me after their session to tell me their kids keep asking for me to come back. Or thank me for how easy and stress-free their photography session was. 

I will guide you a very small amount at first as you are warming up to having a camera on you, but within the first few minutes we will be chatting, snapping photos, laughing and having fun. When there is no pressure to pose yourself and fake the perfect smile, when your time in front of the camera is spent genuinely having fun with your loved ones...your beauty shines. 

After Our Session:

This is one of my favorite parts. Putting all of the images onto my computer and looking through them. There are so many times when a smile spreads across my face knowing how much these images mean to my families. The family connection is like nothing else.

I spend time (lots of it) hand editing the best of the best images from your session.
Within a few days of our session, I will post a couple of sneak peek images on social media (if you'd like.) I love the peek into your gallery that this provides (and I know how anxious you are to see them as well!) About three weeks from our session, your images will be fully edited for you to view in an online password protected gallery. From there you download your high-resolution images. You also have the option of ordering a la carte prints, canvas', and photo gifts straight from your gallery, from a professional, high-quality printing lab.
If you are opting to print your digital images at another print lab other than the one connected to your gallery, I strongly suggest you do research into finding one with high quality to ensure you get the most out of your investment.
