September is family beach month here at our studio! We love doing beach portraits all year round, but this month has always been the perfect mix of the "not too hot, not too cold" for photography at the beach. It's also a great month to play around with two different looks; either spring/summer beach or fall beach! There is so much that goes into getting that perfect family portrait that we talk about EVERYTHING. From location, time, clothing, the kids, you name it! But in the end it is so worth all the time and energy spent.
This particular family we have been dying to share because not only were they the best to work with, but their images turned out simply STUNNING. Drum roll please....
Location. Location. Location.
Of course living in Virginia Beach, portraits at the beach are always a popular option. We have even had families that were in the process of moving call us up and say they wanted their last family portrait in Virginia Beach to be at the beach. Someone once described it as taking a little piece of "home" with them. This particular session we did down at the north end in Virginia Beach, and man did we luck out on the sky that day!
Can we just talk about how precious these faces are?! So much personality and energy was brought to the session by these two that it made capturing something extra special for mom and a dad a breeze.
Speaking of mom and dad, how beautiful are they?! No matter how big or small the family may be, or how long or short of a time two people have been together, we ALWAYS do couple's portraits. We believe it is so important to capture the love that two people share, and remember the start of where your family ultimately began.
Play with color! Your clothing should always be something that you are 1- comfortable in and 2- shows personality and style. We L O V E D the color palette these guys went with. The softness of the pastel pink and mint was beautiful against their beach location!
And finally, displaying your images and portrait delivery day. Portraits are one of the biggest things that turn a house into a home. Your images should fill the walls in your home reminding you every day what matter most- your family!
