One of the biggest advantages to living on Long Island is having access to some of the best beaches on the entire East Coast. While those beaches are typically packed with sun-worshippers during the summer, they’re virtually empty in the fall—making them the perfect spot to enjoy the sights and sounds of the shore, as well as snap a few photos of the entire family.
Perhaps best of all, the above locations are free to visit (small fee at Bayard Cutting Arboretum) so there’s no strain on tight budgets and all are among the most relaxing places Long Island has to offer.
So, you’ve found the perfect location for your family photo, and you’ve decided on a photographer. Great, but now you keep asking yourself questions (in a jittery voice): What will everyone wear? How will I get the kids to behave? What if the baby won’t stop drooling? No need to panic. Professional photographer Korri Leigh Crowley has five tips for getting the most out of your family photo shoot experience, panic-free.
Fall is my favorite season to have family photos taken. In the cooler, crisper air, everyone looks their best: no heat rash, no sweaty faces, no frizz, and we moms can finally pull out our favorite hot mama boots. Plus, there’s the New England fall foliage – what a backdrop it makes!
The question is, where are the best places in Boston to do a family photo session? We asked photographer Korri Crowley, whose work we were introduced to in Kristin’s post about things to do on Castle Island with kids. (Remember the adorable photo of Kristin's daughter? That was Korri's work.) Here, Korri shares her favorite spots in and around Boston for family photos, and what she likes about each one.
