I am always amazed when I hear that people have NEVER had family portraits. I suppose I hold photographs so dear to me that I honestly just feel sad if people don’t have photographs to document the different stages of their life. One reason this family hadn’t taken pictures, a reason I hear more frequently than I should, is that people don’t think they look good, they’d like to lose weight, whatever the case may be, and therefore, avoid photographs. I promise you, the photographs you take will be prized possessions to you one day. They wanted a beautiful sunset on the beach. The weather this week was gorgeous, every.single.day… except today. Clouds piled in over the entire beach just moments before we had our shoot but nonetheless, this family was happy and we made some beautiful shots together!
