Summer family portrait in Union Pier, Michigan

I get many inquiries for a summer family portrait in New Buffalo area. The preferred location is the beach. And it is not a surprise; the sandy beaches are beautiful and they are the main reason many families choose to vacation in Southwest Michigan. 
I love the beach as well, but as a photographer I have to say that the beach is a tricky location to take a beautiful portrait. Why tricky? Mainly because of the strong sun that reflects from the water and from the sand and makes everybody squint.

I embrace every opportunity where the client is happy with any location. This young family choose to have the photo shoot around the summer cottage they rented in Union Pier. The photos turned out lovely and the client is pleased with the result.
