Candid beach photography (Family portrait) at Parson’s Beach with The Crottys – Kennebunk, Maine


Each year my family and some old friends gather for a week of vacation in our hometown Kennebunkport, Maine at July 4th.  It’s been a wonderful tradition that we’ve had since about 1986.  This year was no let down.  We spent a week boating, visiting with friends, beaching, and eating and drinking too much.  I also was able to do some photography and a special shoot was my brother’s growing family: Brendan, Kristi, Keagan and Torin.  We chose Parson’s Beach in Kennebunk which is one of my favorite for doing family or children portraits because you not only have the beach and ocean but also beautiful sand dunes and beach grass–the perfect backdrop for a family photo.  As you can see in the photos, Keagan also spilled a bucket of water on me and my ridiculously expensive camera.  Close call but it didn’t happen.

These are mostly candid portraits but we also did some posed shots as well.

Which is your favorite?

I get hired to photograph people: business headshots, magazine portraiture, acting & modeling photos, family portraits, online dating profile photos, etc. and have have had private portrait sessions with many prominent people which YOU CAN VIEW HERE.
