I was thrilled to meet up with this family of five on a foggy September day at their home by Black Rock Beach for a Cohasset Beach family photoshoot.
Fun playtime with these three brothers
This family’s house is just down the road from the beach, so we started at home, snagging some pictures with all three brothers together. Big brother T is 6, middle brother B is 4, and little T is 2. Right from the start, they were hilarious together. They just love goofing around.
Cohasset Beach Family Photoshoot
Once we had grabbed some quiet pictures at home, we made our way down to the shore for their Cohasset Beach family photoshoot. We got down to their favorite beach and tried out a few pictures on the rocks there. It’s always a bit harder to get great shots of groups of kids outdoors than it is indoors, especially when there are littler kiddos included. That’s part of why I love starting at home to snag those great shots before the wiggles set in.
While we were out on the beach, the fog was rolling in, and it just looked so great for photos. The boys were throwing rocks out into the water and there wasn’t a soul on the beach. I just loved how the fog and the abandoned shore made such a perfect backdrop for this family photoshoot.
Four guys just playing
I made especially sure to get several pictures of daddy playing with his boys, since he’s the photographer in the family. When we're the family photographer, we so often forget to be IN the photos since we're constantly behind the camera. And the smiles on those boys’ faces clearly show how much they love spending time with their dad.
Mama and her boys
I adored the cuddles that this mama had with her three little men. It's always great when kiddos can slow down just long enough to get some hugs.
Smiles in the Autumn Sunshine
Once we got the whole family together, it was nothing but love, fun and real life. The kids squirming, exposed belly buttons, laughter and joy. All of it was perfect, clearly illustrating what this family of five is like when they get to come out and just have fun during their Cohasset Beach family photoshoot.
I made sure to grab some group pictures of the family walking on the beach together, but that last big shot might be my absolute favorite. I hope they print it big and hang it on their wall somewhere! Between the water and the natural way that the five of them connect, I think it was a beautiful summary of their day together on the beach. Mom and Dad and their amazing three boys. It was just a natural, candid moment filled with love.
Thank you to this fantastic family for letting me into your home and into your lives. I loved having the opportunity to document your laughter-filled day at the beach.
I'm Jessica McDaniel, and May 2021 will mark my 18th anniversary photographing babies and their families all around Boston.
