An empty beach in East Hampton, Long Island, was the setting for these sun filled family photos. It was August already and the beach got quiet 4:30 by the afternoon, the family was able to wear light summer clothing. So it seemed we had the whole place to ourselves. We really lucked out that day – the wind could have been blowing in circles! Instead it was totally cooperative, coming from the direction of the sun, right over my shoulder. The mom wanted a color palette that flattered the whole family. We settled on navy blue which held it all together. #beinpictures Be in pictures is a reminder to be in family photos with your children, for them.
