I belong to a blog circle called 5 on 5. We're a group of lifestyle & documentary family photographers who believe in telling stories with our photography. It is our heart to record real life as it happens. There is beauty in every single moment after all.
On the 5th of every month, we will each post 5 images to our blogs that tell a story.
My set of photographs are from an evening earlier this month when I asked my family to help me scout a location for an upcoming family beach photo session. Checking out a location prior to a photography session helps me plan out my shoot ahead of time.
My family is used to helping me, and happily obliged. The life of a photographer's family! But, of course, asking them to play on the beach at the Rock Hall Yacht Club while I photographed them is hardly a tough job! After moving to the Eastern Shore of Maryland, going to the beach and collecting shells and beach glass have become our favorite summer pastime, after all.
I know when I look back, our evenings at the beach will be among my most treasured memories, and I'm happy I have plenty of these moments documented.
Now, it's time to head on over to the next stop in the 5 on 5 blog circle. Check out the blog of Jenny Bower's, family documentary photographer of Sycamore Lane Photography.
