Sunset on the Beach | Beach Family Photographer

Sunset on the Beach | Beach Family Photographer

I met and photographed so many great families on the beach this Summer. What I love the most about sunset photo sessions on the each is the fact that every single session is unique. The sunsets are different each night and depending on the weather and the time of year, the colors fo the sky will take on different hues. The shoreline is constantly changing.  Some days it is replete with shells, other days seaweed, and even starfish. Living on the beach has given me such a new appreciation for nature and being a photographer has made me more conscious of weather patterns.

Motherhood Session on the Beach | Mommy and Me Photography

t is no secret that I love to capture moms with their babies, which is why each year I offer my Motherhood session in the Spring. I focus this session on capturing images of mom interacting with their children in a natural and relaxed way. 

This recent session was a thoughtful gift from my client's husband for Mother's Day.  I can't think of a more meaningful and lasting gift to give a mother. The night of the session was the most perfect night.  The weather was warm and the soft golden light from the sunset was spectacular.

In the Summer, this means that a photography session would start at around 7:00 or even 7:30, depending upon the month during which we shoot. Shooting during golden hour is especially important for beach photo sessions for families and children .

I have been busy lately photographing lots of beautiful families on the beach.  There is nothing I love more than photographing families, but it is even better when we get to take those family photos on the beach at sunset.  As we get into the month of August, the sun begins to set closer to the ocean here in Long Beach, New York.   This means it is also the perfect time of year to book a photo session; there is no better backdrop for your pictures than the beach with a spectacular Long Beach sunset.
