Miramar Beach Photographers To The Bean Family
It is such a treat being Miramar Beach photographers – especially to families like the Bean family!
From the start of our conversations together, Caylen told me that she was drawn to beautiful aesthetics and unashamedly loves tying patterns together. She had a tremendous job doing this for her entire extended family’s outfits.
We had the best time meeting up in Miramar Beach, Florida! With a group of cousins all close it age, it was sure to be the best time. It actually reminded me of my own girls with their cousins. They are all close and the relationship they share is truly special.
It was obvious how close this family is. Each little personality was on display during our session which is the goal of any good portrait. You want to remember these personalities.
We met and played on the beach that was closet to where they were staying in Miramar Beach. We quickly took all formal pictures of the family then let the kids do all the things that kids should do at the beach. They played in the water, ran up and down the shoreline and pretty soon the whole family was involved!
Don’t Have A “HIDDEN AGENDA” IN YOUR FAMILY PICTURES
I was talking to a friend yesterday. We are planning her vision for her family portraits coming up and I told her – Don’t think marketing. Don’t think Christmas card. Don’t think Instagram. Twenty years from now how are you going to want to remember this time of our life?
I think we will be upset at ourselves years from now if the photos don’t feel like us but more like “us with an agenda.”
Mamas, you want little personalities on display. It may not be the ideal Christmas card you were envisioning but we have to think beyond that short term goal when it comes to family portraits. We need to think longterm. When our babies are out of our homes, we will desperately ache to remember their unique little personalities, facial expressions and poses they make. We will laugh at those.
I am afraid if we don’t embrace these things – it will be us that is laughed at because we exchanged the purest representation of the people we love most for a cheap version that was ultimately used for the short term mindset.
