A few reasons why Summer is the Perfect Time for
Family Pictures, and why you should plan Family Photos for your Hamptons
No matter how much time passes, summer vacations will always be a time filled with nostalgia, making Summer Vacation the Perfect Time for Family Pictures. If you’re heading to the beach this summer, why not celebrate this moment by booking in Family Photos on your Hamptons Vacation.
For all parents, 2020 has been a hard year. Balancing parenting and work is already tough, but this year in the midst of a global pandemic, well, if you’re reading this, I’m sure you understand! Thankfully, the summer vacation has arrived! I can’t wait to use this time to ground myself, to put any frustrations out of mind, and to focus on having down time with my son, especially because summer is the most wonderful time to explore the beautiful nature Long Island has to offer. Every year when the summer rolls around, I’m truly grateful to live so close to the Hamptons, and this year has reminded me even more of what I have to be thankful for.
So many parents assume that the Hamptons is an exclusive summer holiday destination, but actually it’s a wonderful place for a family vacation. There are plenty of activities for the whole family, as well as relaxing, calm beaches where your little ones can splash in the shallows. And good news! Despite everything 2020 has thrown at us, the Hamptons beaches are open for swimming, walking, and playing in the sand. Not to mention, the beach or your classic beachside accommodation will make for the most beautiful backdrop for Family Photos on Your Hamptons Vacation.
WHY SUMMER VACATION IS THE PERFECT TIME FOR FAMILY PORTRAITS
Everyone is Relaxed
Every family knows that the moments before leaving for summer vacation are not at all indicative of how the holiday will go – it’s chaotic and just a little bit crazy. You’re constantly going through the packing checklist in your mind, convincing kids to go to the bathroom before you leave, and trying to get everyone in the car. But the moment you leave is the most beautiful feeling – there’s that moment of beautiful anticipation about the lazy, fun-filled days to come and you can enjoy the ride.
Summer Vacation is the Perfect Time for Family Portraits because of this feeling, especially in the Hamptons! Lazy mornings at the beach, walks through the park, and days filled with fun activities leave everyone feeling happy and relaxed, which translates into beautiful family photos. Not to mention, you don’t usually have back-to-back appointments or birthday parties while on vacation, which means less time constraints for your shoot, so you can really enjoy the experience.
There Are Plenty of Activities to Entertain the Little Ones
If your kids are a ball of energy (just like mine!), then Summer Vacation is definitely the Ideal Time for Family Portraits! I always try to keep kids entertained during family portrait sessions, but sometimes it can be hard to keep their attention. During your family’s summer vacation though, everything will be new, interesting, and fun, and so it will be easier to get those dreamy family portraits of everyone looking and feeling their best.
Preserve Your Family’s Favorite Memories
There’s a reason why most of our favorite memories are from vacation! Those feelings of relaxation, of no pressure and no place to be. You can be fully present and really enjoy those moments together as a family. We document all of our other most important memories – early newborn days, first days of school, and before you know it, graduations! So why not document your most precious vacation memories as well? If you plan family portraits during your summer vacation, you’ll have a lasting, beautiful memento of this magical time spent together as a family.
FAMILY PHOTOS ON YOUR HAMPTONS VACATION
Hamptons Beach Family Portraits
Of course, the Hamptons is most famous for its beautiful beaches, and for good reason! With long, white sand beaches, the Hamptons makes for the perfect place for Family Photos, especially while you’re on vacation. Your little ones will have space to run and play, and no doubt it’ll be easy to make them laugh and smile. I always recommend doing photos either first thing in the morning or during the last hours of daylight. This way, we make sure the kids don’t get too tired from the hot sun, and the softer light makes for truly lovely photos, especially during those breathtaking Hamptons sunsets.
Family Portraits at Your Hamptons Vacation Accommodation
Hamptons-style interior and exterior architecture is famous the world over, so why not make the most of it for your Family Photos on Your Hamptons Vacation! The beautiful wood-clad homes and large gardens make for lovely, nostalgic backdrops if you’d like to have some variety in your family portraits. Luckily, most Hamptons homes are an easy walk from the beach, so we could start your Family Photo session at your accommodation before walking over to the beach together.
