Friends and Family BBQ Shoot at Stinson Beach - Natasha
July 19, 2019
Private Residence, Stinson Beach
Natasha held her family photoshoot at a friends house in Stinson Beach, wanting to document this casual birthday party BBQ while everyone was in town. Unfortunately, this gathering originated because of a sudden death amongst their friends and Natasha and her closest college friends came to the sad conclusion that they did not have any photos of them together! The five best friends from college grew apart living in other states and not getting to see each other as regularly as they used to, so when one of them passed away, they realized they should do something about it. Coincidently, one of the girls was having a birthday party that weekend at her home in Stinson Beach so they used this opportunity for a photoshoot to document their love for each other in an informal way. Upon arrival, it was apparent how fun and casual they were and it was obvious why they got along so well and wanted to capture these moments together with a professional photography session. With everyone seemingly smiling from ear to ear whether the camera was pointed at them or not. it was a relatively easy session because they were all simply happy to be with one another. As you can see from some of the images below, they did not take anything too seriously and enjoyed having their own separate photo session at the house. After taking a rare posed photo of them smiling at me, they would quickly turn to each other and continue their goofy and wild ways which is probably why they got along so well! Their natural laughs and wild antics definitely showed off their awesome personalities. The house provided several different backdrops and views for this photoshoot but in reality it only allowed the girls to be more silly with just a different background. It was a memorable time getting to hang out with this fun group of people. Unfortunately, a tragedy brought them back together but at the very least, it helped them realize how important they are in each others' lives.
