This past monday, I met up with the Guillow family at their condo on the beach in New Smyrna Beach where they were staying for vacation. I took several full group portraits then started shooting smaller family groupings. We started at the pool deck area of the condo to get a controlled family portrait with my 2 light flash setup then went down onto the sand to get a variety of images with different looks and backgrounds. Eventually we finished up with reflection portraits on the wet sand just on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean waves. By the end of the shoot, when my contact had asked me where I was from and I gave the story, suddenly we realized an interesting connection. My client's mother, who was part of the family portrait session was also a Catawba College Alum. So much for me saying I went to a small college that you probably haven't even heard of. Below are a few pre-views of the portrait session, some of my favorite images from the shoot.
Last wednesday I met up with the Wayman family to make their family portraits on the beach in New Smyrna Beach, FL. There were 4 generations of women as part of this session. It is always cool for me when I can photograph a family and see the likenesses between the generations. These are some of my favorite photographs from the session. (Also, kinda a funny side note, this session was at North Beach Community Park in New Smyrna Beach, there was another photographer shooting a family session when I got there, and guess what, as I was finishing up, a 3rd photographer showed up with another family. I guess my secret photo location has gotten out into the public.)
Have a great day!
Stay tuned, I've got atleast 2 more family sessions this week, and a wedding next week, so there are going to be some more awesome photos posted here soon.
