Greenwich Beach is such a beautiful place for a family photo session in the summer! I love the weather this time of year – it makes a family portrait session delightful and fun!
One of my favorite things about this family is their easygoing nature. I’ve worked with them several times before, including for Taylor’s maternity and newborn sessions, and they’re just laid back. Mom is always charming and calm, and Dad is so supportive. Those personality qualities sure come in handy when it comes to corralling two young children for a family photo session!
Mom did such a wonderful job coordinating the outfits for her family’s summer portraits. I always suggest to my photography clients that they coordinate (as opposed to outright match), with variations on a color theme and different textures and shades. Something I always point out about clothing – especially for families – is to keep the bolder colors to a minimum on the beach. Neutral and organic is the way to go! And for us photographers, white acts as a natural reflector so it tends to be helpful in outdoor settings (again, as long as there isn’t too much of it). And how adorable is baby Logan‘s chambray playsuit? I LOVE it. It’s practical for an on-the-move baby, and stylish too.
I have to give a shout out to Mom’s beautiful linen shirt! I know summer is sometimes all about breezy dresses, and I love that, but this shirt photographed so amazingly. I love a good textured top, and this one worked out perfectly for her family photo session on the beach.
