It seems the weather gods and photographers have been at odds a little bit in 2018. I know I personally have needed to reschedule a few sessions more than once due to rain, which bound to happen once or twice a year, but this year was particularly difficult. As was the case, yesterday was my third chance to get the J Family in front of my cameras, and while it was finally dry and sunny, I can’t quite call it a beach day. It was an especially chilly one at Sandy Point Beach, and so we decided to have a quick half session yesterday and follow up in the spring with hopefully a warmer second half. Bitter winds aside, it was a true honor as always to photograph this family, who up until a little over a year ago were our neighbors and still are our dear friends. Heather and Trevor have created a family that is gentle, sweet, funny, and adventurous, and I always love capturing their fun personality and spending time with them. Here are my favorites from our chilly time together – favorites that show their warmth and love even despite the cold.
