We were all set, lots of outfits, a special goldendoodle brother to be and gorgeous parents to be…. Dad was proud of his sympathetic weight gain which seems to be on par with mom’s. They were so relaxed and we all had a blast, especailly the puppy! To make the session easy, we took the SUV onto the beach for easy access to clothing and a place to change. Two hours later after this amazing session, we found that we couldn’t get out! Stuck in the sand for quite awhile until help arrived!
Two locations for the cost of one! We started at home to get the initial images pre wind, humidity and lolly pop bribes materializing too soon… I was almost sure the beach would’nt work, it was also dinner time, but we were all pleasantly surprised! The very last image was from two years ago.
With the New York Times photo deadline approaching....weekends of terrible weather drove the session indoors to my studio. Always planning for an outdoor engagement session, East Hampton made sense as the bride, my future daughter in law, spent almost every summer there since she was small. Since Paddy, the family's adorable golden doodle, isn't invited to walk down the isle, we needed him in these engagement images. Yes, snacks were involved for this pooch as seen in his profile after devouring his biscuit...
Next the beach, which at 8:30 am was too bright so the parking lot served as the backdrop here.
Freezing the moment is what good photography is all about. Here are various kinds of tosses mastered by this Dad.
There is no better combination than the Hampton's and New York City as a family and event photographer! The Hampton's provide a serene respite from the hot city. Beautiful families and parties on the beaches are a joy to photograph!
