Right before the Michigan City fireworks on Sunday, I stopped by Beachwalk to photography the reunion of the Smock Family, who came into town from all over the country, actually WORLD, for a wedding. They decided to spend a week at the beach and enjoy their time together. One of the many things I love about Beachwalk– there’s so much more than beach. With a gorgeous pool, a small lake with a fishing pier, a playground, some lovely gardens, and the stunning natural beauty of the midwest woodsiness beyond the dunes– Beachwalk really has it all. It was a pleasure to simply walk a block or two from the house and capture some classic, simple portraits in the gorgeous backyard of Beachwalk.
I respect that he wouldn’t put the baseball down, and after forty photos, he finally smiled, even if just a little tiny bit.
And the folks that started it all!
