This is one of many times I’ve had the pleasure of photographing the Abergel family. This family has a wall dedicated to images I’ve taken since Alice’s newborn session – one image per session. Clients for life!
Here’s a favorite from their 2020 beach session:
And a family portrait from their 2021 fall foliage session:
Let’s move on to their most recent beach session! Each summer we spend time together at Greenwich Beach, so the Abergel family is familiar with the ever-changing weather we enjoy here on the Connecticut coast. I loved this particular session because they light was super bright and golden and it kissed the images just perfectly.
Mom did a wonderful job outfitting her family, and I especially loved the girls’ feminine outfits! I always suggest a range of textures for any family photo session, but especially those we photograph on the beach. A variety of textures gives me more freedom as a photographer, and adds a timeless look to your photographs.
Some of my favorite images from this session include the water, as well. I loved how the setting sun gave the water this very deep glow. It made for an almost-tangible vibe, as if the pictures are going to spring to life! If you allow your subjects to turn toward the sun, you’ll get the most delightful contrast in your images, colorful and crisp. I include a few of these portraits in my family photo sessions at the beach, along with my more traditional poses and images photographed in my favorite spots to capture candids. I love challenging myself and include more variety in my images so I can provide my clients with exquisite, unique galleries.
