Fall on Long Island hasn’t provided the typical sunny, pleasant weather I look forward to after a humid summer, but it hasn’t been all bad. It’s a pretty good feeling to have a great session with a family who willingly braved the elements on a gusty beach.
And it’s a gift to spend time with a family and observe them as they interact. All are unique, with a special magic of their own. I love catching a glimpse of affection between a couple when they think no one’s looking, or the way a big brother looks after the younger one so he doesn't run too far ahead. The details that vanish in a blink are those I enjoy most.
These boys were the sweetest and seemed to really like having their picture taken. The result was a windswept session full of moody overcast skies, but with plenty of smiles. They stuck it out for almost an hour and I’m so glad they did!
