The Coates Family | A Fall Marina Portrait Session

The Coates arrived at the Nepean Sailing Club and somehow turned the parking lot into a tailgate party-like atmosphere within five minutes. You can tell instantly that this is a family that knows how to have fun! From the second they stepped out of their vehicles and into the chilly wind, every single one had smiles on their faces. They laughed easily and hugged often, and made me feel like one of the crew within a matter of minutes.

From my understanding, this family has been wanting to have photos done for a while, and the matriarch of the family finally put her foot down to make it happen! Through the joking and the easy laughter, this session went by in a flash! Thanks again to the Coates family for braving the weather and spending an hour of your Sunday afternoon with me! I hope you like the photos – you brought them to life.
