Family Photographer in Dauphin Island | Gulf Shores
This portrait session took place at the public beach in Dauphin Island, Alabama. Because of the childrens' young age, the parents didn't think the kids would stay still for too many posed shots. For this session we started off with group family shots and then I just let the kids do their thing on the beach. I watched what they were doing and concentrated on getting good candid shots. Occasionally I would be able to pose them a bit. I guess pose isn't the correct word, more like I guided them. Understanding parents help out greatly with this kind of shoot and these parents were great at just letting the kids play. Too many times a great shot can be squandered if the parents try to get the kids to force a smile. Once the kids see it's play time on the beach they are more susceptible to "persuasion."
After shooting around the dunes and a quick wardrobe change we headed towards the waters edge. By this time it was just after sunset and we were treated with a beautiful Dauphin Island dusk setting. I couldn't have asked for a better background for a family beach session!
