The S Family sitting at the Stage Fort Park leaning against an old bunker shed over looking the ocean. I shot this up at the beach with no flash in natural light. This family won the portrait session with me, and I wanted them to have photos that looked like they paid a fortune for. Cory is wearing black which helps draw in the viewer and then the kids are all wearing pastels. The light blue really ties in the green grass around them. Erin is wearing a tan with white scar with boots and jeans. The kids were dressed to relax and have a seat on the ground. The nice thing about Fort Stage Park in Gloucester is that there is so much to work with. If you don't want the beach, you can shoot on the stairs, and if the stairs don't work with the bunkers.
What is great about this location is there is so much to photograph. They have the beach, the bluff, the bunker, the canons. If the kids are getting restless you can also go over to the playground. You have hidden places and wide open spaces.
If I were going to shoot this location again, I would try and go on a day that's less busy. Stage Fort Park hosts a lot of events. The day we were hear there was a Beetles Cover Band and the place was packed. Tip: Check the calendar!!
