This sweet family hired me to take their yearly family photos. We just so happened to be renting a beach cottage on the water in Old Lyme, Connecticut, during this time. So I said, hey! Come on down! Welp, little did I know that the day after it rains at the beach brings a monstrosity of gnats. When I tell you we got eaten alive, that is an understatement. But these guys were SUCH troopers. We got to play in the water, have some fun races, and all in all, we were able capture the perfect images for their 2021 family photos. And can we be honest, like how adorable are these guys?!
