Earlier this month I had the opportunity to photograph the Smith family who were just finishing up their vacation in New Smyrna Beach, and were about to head home to Oklahoma. They decided on the last day of their vacation that they wanted a family portrait ph the beach, and lucky for them, I was available. I met them at Smyrna Dunes Park at the northern most tip of New Smyrna Beach, FL just before sunset, while a large thunderstorm was building just to the West. I worked quickly to beat the storm, and I still made some great images. With this shoot I pulled out some lighting tricks to enhance the sunset, which was a little muted by the thunderstorm. Here are a couple of my favorite images.
