Sunset Portraits | Cousins on the beach

Sunset Portraits

I spent last week in the company of these four awesome children. Yes they are all family so I am totally biased but you would love them all too! We spent the week at Ocean Isle Beach, NC with the whole extended family. It was total chaos with 19 people staying over throughout the week. And next year we will have three new additions. Yes my sister is expecting triplets. Can you guess how excited this baby photographer is? Super excited! But back to the big kids.

We did a quick portrait session on the beach just before sunset. I love this time of day and wish I could get more of my little guy but he is usually asleep by this time of night in the summer. I am sure other families have the same concern when scheduling sunset portrait sessions. The three older kids did great during our sunset session. My little maniac was just too busy cutting up to take a portrait while sitting. But at 2 and 1/2 I cannot expect him to be still or quiet. The fast shutter speed and fast lens are worth their weight in gold for a group portrait session like this. And really any portrait session that includes a toddler. For that age it’s all about being able to move and groove with their whims. Please enjoy the images below.
