So, every so often – a lot less than I probably should – I photograph my own family. A few weeks ago, we were able to arrange a little family night at the beach. It was a bring your own picnic & beach chair kind of event. No planning. Just a place and a time. And, I told everyone to wear something they liked because I was going to bring my camera.
My original plan was to get out my tripod and use the timer for some large group shots, but alas, not everyone could make it. So, I decided it just made more sense to do small groups and get a few fun photos of us together instead.
Our Vivian, was the only kiddo in attendance, so she got lots of modeling in. I love her wild curls in the wind.
The result is really quite precious to me. Some of the most important people in my life, all gathered together on a beautiful evening, captured forever. I’m so grateful to have them, and that my family will put up with me asking them to pose for me at a picnic.
