Beaches, oceans, and seasides are some of the best places to capture gorgeous summertime photos in the Hamptons.  The bright natural light, reflecting water, and shadowy sand dunes make for some fabulous creative possibilities. We recommend golden hour before sundown as ideal timing to take advantage of those rich, sunny tones bouncing off the waves. Sunset can also create long shadows in the sand and waves, adding extra impact to sunset pictures.  Although beaches tend to be more crowded in the summer months, we always do our best to find a secluded spot for family portraits.  Any random stragglers in the background can be removed with a bit of post-processing magic.

We had such fun capturing this family amidst the cool settings of their local beach, and can’t wait to visit again soon!
