Family beach portraits taken in Gulf Shores, Alabama.This was the fourth year in a row photographing beach portraits with this family. This year we decided to shoot at the remodeled Gulf Shores Public Beach near the Hangout. Normally I like to do my beach sessions at more natural looking locations. However we have already done those kind of shoots so the family was up for something different. For this session I treated it more like I would if it were a magazine or commercial shoot. The boys went along with the plan. As you can see from the photographs we even managed to work in the number 4 to coincide with four years of family sessions.
