Outdoor Family Photos at Crane Beach in Ipswich MA
How lucky are we to live in this area of Massachusetts? Just a quick drive to the beach, the mountains, the city. What more could you ask for?! Looking at these family portraits I took at Crane Beach in Ipswich MA last summer, I’m extra thankful to live so close to this gorgeous place. I’m also super grateful that I get to be a photographer and meet awesome families like this one! For more family portrait information check out this post: Top 10 Reasons to Consider Family Portraits.
I met up with the T family at Crane Beach for some family portraits. This session was a super sweet gift from mama’s mama. How awesome of her mom to want to have these precious memories captured and saved forever?! Mr. S was 10 months old and such a fun and happy baby. With the help of my assistant, and a toy from home, I was able to get some seriously adorable smiles from him.
Styling Inspiration from these Outdoor Pictures in Ipswich
Before any session I send out a questionnaire to get to know families, and their styles, a bit better. This mama mentioned that they would all be wearing neutral colors. I love how classic and timeless the shades of white and light blue look. They give the photos a nautical feel, while not taking away from the beautiful backdrop.
If you worry about what to wear for you family portraits, don’t! We have an online styling tool to help. We also have a Summer Family Portraits Styling Guide.
Crane Beach is a gorgeous setting for outdoor family photos. If you haven’t checked it out I highly recommend. And while you’re there, stop at White Farms for ice cream and Clam Box for fried seafood! There’s nothing better than a beach day in New England.
Displaying Your Family Portraits
It sounds cliche, but no matter what age your little one is, they’re only this little once. Which is why it is so important to have these photos to look back on and remember. Don’t let your photos “collect dust” on your hard drive. Print and display them! We make the process of choosing and ordering your prints and products as stress-free as possible. Not only do we offer custom fine art albums, but we also offer custom framed prints, gallery wrapped canvases and more. To make choosing wall art even easier, we can create wall art mock-ups of your walls using your photos. Here’s an example of a wall gallery mock-up from this session.
