Here are some shots from a recent family shoot at the beach. I was hoping to get some sunset shots but it was too cloudy and overcast most of the time. It didn't stop them from going in the water and having some fun! Please CC them for me below. Thanks for looking!

#1 doesn't do it for me ... looks too uncomfortable.

But it's a shame the younger girl is turned away from the camera in 6 and 7 ... they're my fav's of the set. Very dynamic... you get a very natural family" feel from it.

Breathtaking images! Not what I was expecting for a family beach shot. I like #1, even though the famliy is pretty close. Colors are pretty bold! Excellent compositions.

Thanks for the comments. 1 does look forced, but I like how the image turned out and the composition of the family. It was one of the first shots taken during the shoot, so they hadn't quite warmed up to having a camera pointed at them. 6 & 7 were exactly the captures I was looking for, but I couldn't get everything perfect with the younger one turned away from the camera. I guess the shore break was more interesting than me. :P

For the shoot, I used a 7D + Sigma 30/1.4 + Sigma 85/1.4 + AB1600 OCF with a 60" PLM held on a boom by my assistant. I only used the light when necessary to take advantage of the great natural light provided by the overcast skies.

Great shots. I would have backed up a little bit more in 2 as to not cut off his knee and hair though.

Thanks for the suggestion. It's the details that count! I originally cropped the image to fix the horizon line and didn't realize I had cut off some of his hair and knee. I fixed the crop and I think I can live with the horizon line as-is.

I'll have to remember to take a few steps back next time a shot like this comes up in case I need to make a similar edit. I'd be a lot happier with the photo if I had more space above and below the subjects.

I always shoot a couple steps to far back when doing portraits. You can always crop it in, but you can't get it back. It also helps for printing. What if you filled the frame with the family, but now you need to crop to 8x10? You now only get half of the people on the sides of the shot.
