I had so much fun photographing this family from Georgia! Mom’s a photographer, and as I’ve said before, I absolutely love photographing other photographers. When I tell people that, they are usually surprised thinking that I wouldn’t want another photographer’s critique. But not at all! I love the collaboration that happens when I photograph photographers. It’s like the wise old adage: “Two heads are better than one!”
There was so much love amongst this family, so much laughter and joy! There was even some impromptu dancing at the end. It was such a perfect moment I got to capture of Mom, Dad, and their two kids dancing with the waves crashing around their ankles. I think the photo perfectly captured their essence as a family!
We started out just simply taking photos on the beach in the sunlight. Everyone felt comfortable in front of the camera right from the start! That’s another added bonus of photographing photographers and their families; they are used to being in front of the camera! Their son and daughter had fun running along the shoreline. I can tell that they are super close and not just in age. They have a fun sibling relationship. Their daughter is Daddy’s little girl! She enjoyed being tossed up in the air by her dad; she giggled the whole time. Mom was not left out though. She got a sweet kiss from her son!
As the sun started to set, we started taking full family pictures. I absolutely love the one of all four of them sitting on the rocks with the ocean behind them. Their smiles are all so natural! We were able to sneak in some pictures of just Mom and Dad too. So much love in this family. Thank you for leaving a smile on my heart.
Are you considering this location for your next photo shoot? Here’s another family at the same locale. Oahu beaches are closed right now with the exception of ocean activities and exercise. Once Hawaii reopens, here are some of my favorite Oahu beaches I highly recommend adding to your vacation itinerary.
