Southampton, Little Plains Beach Family Photos
Documentary family beach session- Little, Plains Beach, Southampton
Little Plains beach, my beach, my town, my turf. I grew up in Southampton year round. I spent my summers on Little Plains Beach in Southampton just like this family. My summer days consisted of sun, sand, surf, and water, just like these boys. I have so many wonderful summer memories on the beach with my family. Although I don’t have the privilege to live year round in Southampton, I do go back to my childhood home every summer. Trish and I became friendly a few years ago as we began talking about dogs, she has a golden doodle and so do I. Every time I was at the beach so was Trish and her boys. Trish and I became friendly and often discussed how all our summer memories were made at the beach. I mentioned I was a documentary family photographer and Trish jumped on the opportunity for me to spend a few hours photographing her kids during a typical summer day at the beach. She said her boys would not pose for pictures, I assured her there was no posing necessary, just have fun and I will get the moments.
These boys were active. Non stop I followed them for two hours as they swam, ran, and surfed. I can’t wait to see them next year at the beach.
