Outdoor Family Pictures That Don't Have To Be On The Beach.
 Family pictures should be taken where you are most comfortable at.

When someone mentions they are getting a family picture taken during the summer, the first thing someone will ask, which Beach?   As much as I love taking beach pictures in New Jersey, we also have some areas that are not on the beach that are just as beautiful.    

This family I have photographed for over 10 years and they were due to update their family portrait.  The oldest was now away at college and the youngest is just about to begin.  They have a family house down the shore that we have taken pictures at, but the one place they love to be on any given weekend, it's the Lake.

 We did this pose 5 years ago and boy have they changed!

See, that boat able, is where the Father and his sons play every weekend.  From tubing to water skiing they have made a lot of memories with that boat and on this lake.  So it's only fitting that they have a picture taken of this.

 And yes, it's ok to goof around in your pictures.

This family loves to joke around and Mom goes right along with it.  They loved it so much, they put this as one of the pictures on their photo family Christmas Card.  I'm sure years from now they will look back at this picture and giggle but I'll put money on it, they will probably still be making funny pictures! 

 A great family picture no matter where you have it taken, is always a great thing to have.

I can't wait to take their family portrait 5 years from now.  I wonder if there will be an girlfriends or wives in the picture?  Time will tell, but for now they have really nice pictures to share and enjoy!
