Wind N Sea Beach Family Photos

Time flies when you’re a photographer – I think the first time I photographed Tamra and her kids (they were just kids back then) was in 2007…ironically at the beach. Life certainly has changed over the last 6 years and it has been a joy to watch kids become teens and love grow into this beautiful family. family photos blue gray fence La Jolla CA by www.SomeLikeItShotPhotography.com

Here is their video with even more photos from the day:

 

The pink bougainvillea was so stunning there was no way we could ignore it on our way down to the beach and so we had a volunteer to pose for us with the pink.

The weather was stunning at Wind N Sea beach in La Jolla, CA. A little mist but nothing like the normal fog that can consume the area at the blink of an eye.

Everyone was great! We know it isn’t easy being in high school or middle school and asked to snuggle up with your family so we really appreciated that they weren’t afraid to be close to each other.

Life at the photoshoot really wasn’t too difficult, forced to lounge in sand on a beautiful sunny day, hardly anyone else at the beach since it was a week day during the off season. Absolutely no complaints from our end. We were happy to be in the soft sand taking photos too – not many beaches like this in Seattle.

The large rocks provided some great posing props.

The only sad part was the graffiti, which we removed for the photos, it is pretty amazing how great nature can be.

Wind n Sea lived up to its name for a bit providing that fun wind blown hair look. Her hair reminded me of octopus tentacles as they flowed in the salty air.

Being the only son it was a nice moment to escape the girls and take a walk along the shore.

As a senior in high school and the oldest of the family, finding a spot all to herself just to relax and enjoy the sounds of the ocean were all we could ask for.

Our jobs wouldn’t be complete without at least one fun crazy photos and the youngest was  in the jumping mood.

The photoshoot ended with a surge – literally :) we were at the end just playing around when a wave and surprised us all…none of our equipment got wet but we certainly did from waist down. It wasn’t too bad considering the warm sun had us sweating.

When Family Photos Turn Out Even Better

There are times when things don’t go as planned, actually this seems to be a common theme with photography in general. Our profession really depends on problem solving skills more than anything, whether it’s related to problem solving lighting, backgrounds, working with kids who are having a bad day or posing to make everyone look and feel comfortable, there are literally hundreds of things that could potentially throw you a curve ball and if you don’t know how to handle that kind of change…well good luck. Then, there are times when things don’t turn out as planned … they turn out even BETTER!! This was one of those photoshoots.

When we arrived at the lake we planned on photographing there were a few unplanned changes since the last time we were there looking at the location. The sun was setting in a different area at this time of year and well the lake only had about 2/3 of the water.

We didn’t realize was how amazing a dried up lake would look. It was dry, hard and safe to walk on …essentially I think it turned out to be a better background than the lake would have been alone. As a matter of fact it was so cool we decided to stay in the dry area almost the entire photoshoot.

There was even tall grass to play with too. Natures perfect backdrop made the pink and purples really pop.

The tall grass gave us something for the girls to play in (& change in) too.

We had some hair whipping fun filled with cartwheels, toe touches, and super model poses. Laughter no matter what was going on, couldn’t have happened if we were having to be careful to not get wet or fall in a lake.

The unexpected fuchsia and purple sunset topped off the photoshoot.

I’m adding this one in here even though they were just outtakes, just a reminder of the wonderful client friends we have and miss dearly in CA. We’ve been photographing these lovely ladies since the youngest was just 4 years old. It’s such a proud feeling to watch them grow older and to see them become more successful and happy each year. Sending Big Hugs to you guys!!
