Family Pictures Atlantic Beach Florida
These family pictures were taken in Atlantic Beach, Florida. This cute mom’s family lives right near the beach (close enough that she could show me their homes right before we took pictures). She literally grew up going to this very beach. She always wanted family photos at the pier in Atlantic Beach. She talked about four different backgrounds at the beach that were special to her. She said the boardwalk/bridge were special because her cousin got married there previously. She said the sand dunes, the pier and of course the water. This has become one of my own personal go to spots for photos and to play at.
Could you be able to tell these photos were taken in the fall/winter in Florida? The weather here is fairly mild but there can be cool nights. There was a slight chill in the air and the water was quite cold. The girls opted not to be in the water for many photos.
I mentioned I wasn’t sure how I would get couple photographs because of the baby. The grandfather came to the photo-session just to hold the baby for a couple of minutes at the beginning. This family also brought a little bouncer so the baby would have somewhere warm to sit while he waited his turn to be in pictures. He was bundled up. Yes, I know the families I photograph are prepared.
Another great thing about these family pictures is it was there first time getting family photos done!
I love how involved both parents are in all the girls activities and raising them. The dad was laid back and go with the flow. His line of work he see’s how fragile life is so he said that makes him appreciate the day to day more. He was completely present with his family while taking family pictures. He was willing to do whatever I asked (let’s take pictures in the cold water-sure!) and as you can tell he’s adored by his family. I learn so much talking to other moms about the different extracurricular activities around town. She’s a busy mama going to different activities. She goes not because it’s easy but because it enriches her girls lives. She also talks so openly how much she loves being a mom and I love that. She inspires me to be a better mom. Taking photos snuggling her babies on the beach was great. The girls are best friends and the kissing and hugging were unprompted from me. They are two peas in a pod and it was wonderful watching them play together on the beach.
