Beach portraits are in full swing! What amazing nights we have had so far!
This Summer I was so excited when Tyler and Sarah reached out for some family portraits! Always so fun to hear from my past wedding couples! I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding day in York, Maine and we returned to the very spot where they said “I do” to capture their new addition to the family. How sweet is he?! Such a sweet age, crawling and exploring and starting to toddle around. And those toes! I love when my wedding couples think of me to capture their family!
I always say the hardest part about family portraits is just simply getting everyone in the same place at the same time! We just love it when families carve out time to capture the gang when this rare occasion occurs. During our extended family sessions we start with the more traditional posed groups and move into fun, casual play on the beach. With so many special spots on the Maine coast the locations are endless! Be sure to take advantage of the time you all have together and capture those memories for generations to enjoy. The best part about family photos is that they become more and more valuable with time!
There is no denying how much we LOVE beach portraits but it’s even more exciting when the family has a special connection to the beach where we photograph! Generations of this family have gathered right in this very spot, at this very beach cottage and we were thrilled to capture just a glimpse of this moment in their family time at Wells Beach. And what a night!
I always say that the hardest part about family photos is just getting everyone together in the same place! When everyone lives in a different part of the country it can be so hard! So when Kelly reached out about family photos for her extended family during their visit to Kennebunkport I was excited! I met them right at the home they rented on the water (this location!) and we gathered for some fun and low key photos on the beach. What could be better than family photos on the beach after sipping some wine around the fire together!
Stop. Soak it in. Summer is still here… breathe the salt air and hold on to it tight.
The days are getting longer and the temperatures are rising and we are getting excited to see all our family portrait clients again! It’s that time of the year for booking your beach session and as we catch up with our clients and schedule their portraits for this Summer we can’t help but think about our sessions from the years past. I can’t wait to see how much these cuties have grown!
The moments in between always end up being the sweetest for our family beach portraits.
It seems like Spring has come early here in New England, honestly if we can’t have snow I would rather it be warm and sunny! We’ve already logged several beach walks and it’s only March! We can’t wait for all that Summer in New England brings including family beach portraits! I can’t think of a better way to honor your family time together. This sweet family was visiting from California for an East Coast wedding and took some time to relax in Kennebunkport and celebrate their little guy’s first birthday. We met at Parson’s Beach (a favorite spot year round) for a quick session. How cute is he?!?! When planning for your Summer get togethers a family portrait session should always be on the list!
