Family portraits at North Beach Plantation with my previous wedding couple

I had to put up a quick post about this family of three because I also shot their wedding pictures back in 2011!  It was really fun getting to see a previous wedding couple again after so many years, this time with a new addition to the family. Their new baby girl was also a great subject for pictures. Sometimes I need other family acting silly or making sounds behind me and the camera to get a baby to smile, but she was being great just for me without any extra help. She had some of the cutest expressions like she knew she was showing off for the camera.

The weather that day at North Beach Plantation in North Myrtle Beach wasn’t the best. It was overcast so we didn’t get the pretty colors of a sunset. But I always try to tell clients that if we have to do the pictures on an overcast day, you can still get a very nice look. There is a very soft appearance to the pictures without any harsh shadows or strong highlights from the sun. Usually to achieve a look like that you have to wait until very close to sunset, so an overcast day actually has its own advantages.  It’s not ideal but it can also still be very nice.

I hope you enjoy the pictures below, I’ve got a lot of weddings I’d like to put a blog post about once I get caught up on things.
