Family Photos: Tom, Katie and Mabel

I went down to the beach recently with some very good friends to take some photos of them with their gorgeous 6 month old baby, little Mabel, and their puppy, Bear.  We had some gorgeous light as the sun dipped behind the headland at Miami and I got to shoot with the D800.  It performed very well – oh, I also got to play around with the Fuji x100 and a flash off camera (in a 28″ Westcott Apollo) – I used a single speedlight (at full power) and a fast shutter (thanks to the leaf-shutter) to control the ambient light for a different look.

As usual, Jas and I turned up a little early so I could have a look at the light and plan the shoot.  I was initially concerned about how much beach we had to work on as it was high tide just as we were due to start.  Thankfully, we had enough beach, but we did get surprised with a few waves rushing in.  We also lost a little bit of beach to a group of guys partying under a marquee – there was plenty of beach to share and we got to enjoy the tunes they were pumping out (haha).

Bear was very energetic throughout the shoot.  We had to tie him up for some puppy-free photos, but he didn’t mind – I think he was just happy to be at the beach.

I really enjoyed taking these photos and hanging out with Tom, Katie and Mabel – I hope you guys like the photos too.
