Family Pictures on the Beach- Monica Dyer Photography

Thank-you to the "M" family, for meeting me at the beach for your family portrait session. It was a perfect day for pictures, and you all look stunning!

Pre-rain Beach Shoot

Yes, believe it or not, less than 15 minutes after this image was captured, it started pouring down rain! I had arranged to meet the "B" family at the Harbor Beach Marriott in Fort Lauderdale at 6:30 p.m. It looked pretty iffy when I arrived, but we decided to go for it. I got the kids on the beach, and got a few good shots, but before the grandparents made it to the beach, the summer storm was in full swing. The family was great about it though, and I was able to go back a couple days later to complete the shoot.

Elegant Child

Elegant Child of Boca Raton is the name of the boutique where I will be shooting mini portrait sessions on June 2nd. This little girl is the boutique owner's grandchild. Isn't she gorgeous?

I have always liked this quote. Saw it on this blog today.

SNEAK PEEK: Mother and Daughter Beach Session

A mother and daughter photo shoot at the beach-- the weather was perfect, the subjects both looked great, and the love between the two of them definitely came through.  As the mother of a daughter myself, it was enough to make me a little teary-eyed.  What a fabulous gift to give to your daughter!

Why Facebook is for Old Fogies

A funny article in Time magazine about why the middle-aged are joining the social networking phenomena.

Back to the Beach

This is a great time of year to schedule a family portrait session at the beach.  The weather has been perfect!  This family hails from the "windy city" of Chicago, and they certainly enjoyed our warm south Florida weather.

This family is fortunate to live right on the beach! These pictures were taken in their back yard, LOL :)

Beautiful Family at the Beach

This is the season for family pictures on the beach! This beautiful family met me at Deerfield Beach at around 5:00. It was a gorgeous afternoon, and as you can see, my subjects are gorgeous too!

What a fun family shoot I had with these girls and their parents and grandmother. Aren't they beautiful? And yes, they love their Dad!

A Dad and his Boys

Can you tell which boy is shy and introverted, and which one is outgoing and tiny bit mischievous?

And what about the colors of the sky and water in this picture?? This is what the beach looks like on Key Biscayne when the sun is setting. This photograph was taken on the last day of the year, 2008. I had not been to Crandon Park Beach for several years, and I had forgotten how different a beach on the bay is, compared to a beach on the ocean. It is calm and still, and the light from the sky reflecting on the water is quite spectacular.

A Mother and Child

More often than not, my favorite image from a family session, is one of a parent and child. Like this one.

A Fun Family Shoot at the Beach

I had a great time photographing this family yesterday. All the kids were home for the holidays, so they headed to the beach for a family portrait. After the requisite "posed" shots, we had some fun with this one!

More Sea-Side Kisses

This time from a couple of newly-weds. As a Christmas gift, R. and A. are surprising their families back in Massachusetts with photographs of the two of them on the beach in Florida. I can imagine there's nothing like receiving a beach portrait in the middle of a cold, New England winter to make you wish you were in Florida. :) Watch out, you two-- you may have an abundance of house guests in the near future. :)
