Recently, I've found a new appreciation for the real and bona fide moments that come with photographing families in their own environment. There is something about kids being in their own surroundings that puts them at ease.
In July, I had the opportunity to photograph cousins and brothers Owen, Frankie, Toby and Rex. I thought it was fitting for me to document them running around the beach. The session was totally unplanned and awesome. Owen and Frankie are cousins, best friends, and could not be more opposite. Toby is a little shy and a total mama's boy. Rex is the youngest of the Stewart/DeRosa/Pittelkow clan. He just does his own thing, learning from his older sidekicks.
Laura, Sarah, Cam and Austin - Thanks for inviting me to come hang out with the boys. Thanks for the little smooches, smiles and sandy tushies.
