As a family photographer based in Cumming and serving the Atlanta area, I don’t often get to shoot on the beach! We just got back from a family beach trip with my entire side of the family. That means my husband and me, my parents, my 2 sisters and their spouses, and the 11 children we have between us. It was crazy and wonderful all at the same time. We went to Cinnamon Beach, named for the unique cinnamon-like look to its sand.
One of the things we all try to prioritize on trips like this is getting our faces out of our phones and in the moment. At the same time we all want to document these sweet little years with our children. They are all changing and growing so quickly, so it’s important to have tangible memories. So this year, instead of worrying about documenting every moment, we each took one sunrise to get family photos.
Since I am the official family photographer, I take both of my sisters’ family photos every year, and I even invested in my own family photos and hired a local photographer for my own family session. First up is Mindy and her family, and they definitely got the wettest during their session, but it was totally worth it! As a photographer who loves bright and airy photos, beach sessions are a dream for me! I also enjoy the technical challenges of the rapidly changing light and balancing the glow of the sun with my subjects.
