As I began searching for inspiration for this beach session, I remembered a few old family photos that I noticed in their beach house last time I visited. They were reminiscent of old Venice Beach style images where the family was just documented playing on the beach. Things weren't "prettied up" in photoshop or in camera, they were just a very real depiction of what a day at the beach was like. I loved the black and white nostalgia of the whole look and thought we would try it out. Are they super duper creative? no. Are they wildly intoxicating? hardly. Are they seriously a truthful representation of what a day at the beach is like for this family? yep. exactly. I really, really love the way it turned out. The feel of the images is just what I was looking for. I C A N N O T WAIT to see this book designed around the concept of this shoot (or this portion of the shoot, anyway).
