Sunset Family Portrait Session at Gooseberry Island
The sunset over Gooseberry Island in Westport, MA was absolutely PERFECT on the night of Emily's family session. She chose this location because it had a special meaning to her family - which is something I ALWAYS encourage. You’ll simply be happier spending time in a place you genuinely love, and that happiness will show in your photos!
Emily & Ray’s adorable 3-year-old son, Shawn, wasn’t in the greatest of moods when they first arrived at the beach…which, of course, is pretty normal for a toddler. So I stepped away for a few minutes to let him have a little quality time with his parents, and he warmed right up. We got to do lots of fun, action-y poses, like the piggyback and the “big swing,” and Shawn ended up having a blast! When the sun was in just the right spot in the sky, I had the three of them sit in the sand together so I could capture those gorgeous golden hour shots they really wanted.
Right from the beginning, it was easy to see just how much love is shared between these three people, and I can't wait to photograph them again! ❤️
