I love east coast beaches! Well I guess I love all beaches but when we are back east I get very nostalgic for these beautiful stretches of sand along the Atlantic. Born in Rhode Island, raised in and around Boston and living most of my adult life in NYC, I have had the good fortune of spending my fair share of time on these beaches.
For those of you that aren’t familiar, the Hamptons are where New Yorkers go in the summer. Manhattan empties during July and August and the adorable little towns that dot this stretch of Long Island swell with city dwellers looking for an escape.
It’s been awhile but I think back to many summer Friday afternoons jumping on the Hampton Jitney and heading out to South Hampton. Traffic. Traffic. Traffic. If I was smart, I’d jump on the Long Island Railroad after work and arrive in the middle of the night. Not very glamorous way to get out there but efficient.
Regardless of how you arrive, it is beautiful. Quaint is really not a good enough description of the towns. They are just so perfect. Great restaurants. Farmer’s Markets. Boutiques. The beaches are serene and very rarely overcrowded. Worth the 5 hour ride that in the off season would take half the time.
I love the energy and sheer cuteness of these two little girls! What fun. The beach is such a great spot for a family session. Kids being kids!
This family portrait session began at their home and ended at beautiful Quoque beach. It’s always nice to document the family’s story. Or at least,
