Family Photo Shoot | Black Sand Beach

Family Photography is never short of beautiful. But when you capture these lovely moments of family on a black sand beach on the Amalfi Coast in Italy, it becomes something Magical.

I had finally done it. I had booked my first Photography Workshop. And in Italy of all places. To say I was excited is an extreme under exaggeration! But of all the happiness between getting my first passport stamp in the location of my childhood dreams, to riding ferries and trains along the Amalfi Coast to our Villa on the sea, none of it compared to when I saw the Howells.

A large beautiful, happy mess of love of they were! And for family photography that is exactly what I like to see.

Now since I was attending a Workshop I was not alone in capturing this wonderful family and that made it a challenge. I am all up for challenges though and that was part of the reason I attended the Photography Workshop to begin with. To get out of my comfort zone and push my creative boundaries.

Sometimes the Beauty You Seek is Hiding Right in Front of You. Count yourself Among the Lucky if You are Able to Look Back and See those Little Forgotten Moments of Unknown Happiness.

I may not have been able to get personal with the family and interact with them the way I naturally would have, but that let me see how other photographers interacted with families. This also pushed me to see the beauty in moments I would not typically shoot.

We let the family enjoy each other and besides giving little prompts of play, we let them engage naturally with each other. This is my favorite way to shoot and I enjoyed so much seeing the authentic interactions of the family.

Look on for the images I dearly loved and see how beautiful The Howell Family were styled for their Italy Vacation Family Photos!

You will never have this day with your children again. Tomorrow they’ll be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift. Just breathe, notice, study their faces and little feet. Pay attention. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today, it will be over before you know it.

And here our Beach Day came to an End. But don’t worry, the day didn’t stop here. We continued our Photoshoot up to the Villa and did an In Home Photography Session!
