The best gift you can give a grandparent is time with family and photos of everyone enjoying their favorite place. That’s exactly what Chelsy did for her parents’ anniversary this summer. Living just a few miles from the Sturgeon Bay shipping canal, Lake Michigan is kind of in her family’s backyard which made the location a perfect match.
Door County Family Photographer
We started out with the whole group, capturing photos with the rushes and boardwalk in the background, then swapped directions to get the lighthouse and lake. In our family sessions we’re always sure to get all the breakdowns of the group — big family, individual families, kids together, kids (and pets!) separately, and some special ones with grandparents and grand-babies. The one people sometimes forget is the anniversary photos. Kiddos come along and all the sudden we only have selfies with our spouse because family photos are always our main goal (guilty!) but it’s only a minute more to snag a few couples photos too.
Door County Beach Family Photos
With all the group photos completed, little Olivia led the charge to full play and we were able to capture some beautiful candids of her and her grandparents on the beach and in the waves. At the very end, everyone ran into the water, letting the waves crash up over their legs for one last photo! We know that must have been a soggy ride home, but we think it was worth it. 😉
