I was very doubtful that this Beach Family Session Burlington Ontario was going to take place. It was pouring rain all day long, but come the later after the seater cleared up and the sun even came out and we had a beautiful evening to take photos of this lovely family!
The beach this night was nice and we didn’t have to worry about having too many people in the background of the photos, not like the beach sessions I did a couple of weeks ago. It was VERY busy, but it is not surprising considering the summer is winding down. I often wish we had many more months of nice summer weather to enjoy these outdoor Beach Family Session.
I have been photographing this lovely family for just over these years now. I took Cathy’s maternity photos when she was pregnant with little Cole, and then I took Cole’s newborn photos, and family photos through the years. So when Cathy contacted me to do extended family photos with her in-law’s I was very honoured. And such a nice family they are!
Of course the boys did not want to get their pictures taken, but being at the beach makes for a great distraction! I try to get a few family formals first and then let the kids play with all the cool beach toys I bring with me! Expect that your kids will get dirty, but as I mentioned we try to get a few formals out of the way at the beginning. Don’t put too much of an expectation on them, and you will end up with gorgeous images of kids being kids, playing in the water and sand! I also suggest doing late evening photos or early morning photos in order to avoid the crowd! Plus we get amazing lighting at those times!
