S Family, Sunset at Dog Beach | Hickam AFB Family Photographer, Sharleen Mey Photography
Now that I am on a break from client sessions, I can start the blogroll back up and show you all the amazing families I met this Fall season! Today’s blog features the fun and sweet ‘S’ family. Amber contacted me about a family session in October and mentioned how it was their first ever professional family portraits–ok, no pressure ;). I provided her with a few options and we ultimately decided on Hickam Dog Beach located at Hickam AFB.
I don’t think I will ever stop saying this, but the light was perfect that evening! It was a popular night for photographers (not-so-hot weather and low tide) so I started off in the grassy area by the abandoned buildings. Here, I was able to get a good amount of sun peeking through the trees giving me that awesome sparkly background. I was in for a treat when we made our way to the beach area because little-man J absolutely LOVES dogs and of course there were plenty of dogs at this beach to make him super excited and happy! A beachgoer even let us “borrow” her pup so I could capture a few smiling faces of J.
The sunset was beautiful like always and I cracked up over the fact that J was more than happy to say “Bye!” to me when we walked back to our vehicles.
Thanks for allowing me to capture your first family portraits S family!
