- About This Post
I don’t shoot a lot of mini-sessions, especially with new clients who aren’t familiar with the way I work. A mini session is about 15-20 minutes, usually outdoors somewhere fun like the beach. Nicole and John were staying at a rented beach house in Aptos with some other family members when I met up with them. The kids are at that perfect age where they’re cool with photos, or at least will put on a smile in return for some secret, previously agreed-upon form of compensation. Regardless, the kids were great, and were happy to play along with whatever ideas I threw at them. Nicole (mom) was a joy to work with – easy to smile and quick to laugh. I’m pretty sure John enjoyed himself too; as a dad myself I’m not always eager to get on the other side of the camera, but if the photographer is quick and competent, I usually have a good time in the end. I hope this was the case for John! So, even though we only had 15-20 minutes together, I feel like we got a bunch of keepers from their Seascape Beach family portrait session.
Below are some of my favorite photos from the family photography session, laid out album spread-style. Enjoy!
