When extended families request photos together, my favorite go-to is a casual lifestyle family session where they can all connect and I can capture their current phase of life! This sweet family vacationing near Three Oaks, MI from the Chicago area was hoping to find a beach for their evening family photo session. Weko Beach right along Lake Michigan turned out to be the perfect spot!
While it can be a challenge to capture quality moments at a public beach with little ones, this family made things so easy! Grandma and Grandpa happily played with their four sweet grandchildren.
Moms and Dads raced, tickled, swung, and scooped up their kiddos, getting plenty of genuine laughs and smiles out of them. Those are my favorite types of lifestyle family portraits!
Next time you're planning a family vacation in Southwest Michigan, hit me up and book a family portrait session! These beach sessions are all kinds of fun, or we can hit up a meadow at sunset (my other favorite).
