Although most beach portrait clients think they want pristine portraits of their well-groomed children smiling sweetly into the camera, I think there may be a different kind of portrait that will be even more special. Years from now, as you remember your children, don’t you want to imagine them in action, doing what they love to do, in the way that only they do it? Wouldn’t you love to see a variety of emotions as you reminisce through your pictures? Wouldn’t you love to capture their personalities in the most authentic way?
If so, consider a lifestyle beach portrait session. Lifestyle sessions are photographed in a documentary style, with your family doing an activity together. In the session below, the mother actually chose two activities: playing at the beach, and catching blue crabs on a local Emerald Isle dock. What a perfect way to document two little boys just being little boys! We created an album of the experience for her, and the pages are shown below.
