This photo session has been almost a year in the making. We tried a couple times back in the fall and it wouldn’t work out, but finally, on Mother’s Day it worked to get everyone in the family all together at the same time. I can’t say how it would have turned out if we did this back in the fall, but I LOVE these images of this amazing family! I met them at their vacation home on the ocean in Holden Beach at 8am on Mother’s Day, praying that the rain clouds that loomed over would stay away for at least the hour that we needed for the pictures! As all photographers know, cloudy, over-cast days are better for day-time photos and I think they added a little something to the background here. I loved their outfits! Not the traditional “family beach” pictures, just a certain scheme to follow and everyone wore their own outfit. Perfect! We did a whole variety of shots; whole family, Mom and dad and their children, grand kids, each couple, each parent with their child(ren)… It was the perfect morning and great way to start the special day for all the mothers there.
And bonus- the rain did hold off until I was on my way home!
