Boat Family Photo Session

East Beach Boat Family Session at the Marina

I had the honor of my first family session on a boat this fall! It was so different! We were docked in the marina, which made some wide shots tricky. BUT all that white reflected so much light!

Shooting on a boat is really tight. There’s very limited space to back up – without falling in the water! This particular yacht had multiple levels making the angles wonky sometimes. Thank goodness for Lightroom’s straightening tool!

And the dogs! It was so new to the dogs that Major (the Golden) super nervous! Wouldn’t let his dude out of his sight!

Overall it was a creative challenge that made a nice change of pace. I hope to do it again!
