Lumar Family Waterfront Park Mt Pleasant Family Session
Sep 21, 2020 | By: Ray Photography
When I did the family session for the Lumar Family, I was impressed. I captured four generations in this shoot, and it was beautiful to see. The session was to celebrate their Dad's 67th birthday, and I was delighted when Nekedra contacted me. The last time they had professional photos with their Dad in it was 30 years ago! They, however, had taken some pictures with their mom about two years ago.
We had this family session at Mt Pleasant in South Carolina. One of the things that amaze many people about this memorial waterfront park is its location. When you visit, you're a few steps away from the bustling city life and a few steps away from the ocean. How cool is that?
This park has incredible views of the water, which you'll see in the pictures below. On your visit, you could also be lucky to see airplanes, sailboats, and birds go by. Another fascinating thing about this waterfront park is the Pineapple fountain. Kids love to cool off here in the summer. You'll also enjoy strolls through the tree-covered pathways, and I had lots of fun with the Lumar Family here. Their family love is beautiful to see.
I captured eight beautiful members of the Lumar family in this session:
Their Dad: Sterling Lumar
Their Mum: Barbara Lumar
The Daughter Who Contacted me: Nekedra Lumar (Thanks Nekedra)
Her Sister: Sharhonda Lumar
A Daughter: Tynashia Pinckney
Another Daughter: Kinnedi Lumar
Another Daughter: Maddison Smalls
The Long-Awaited Grandson: Jaiceon Pinckney
It was lovely to capture this family and share the day with them. After the session, I asked Nekedra to share some things about the family with me. This is what she had to say:
How Would You Describe Your Family?
I would say we are a very loving family with our own perks. A little bit of crazy, loud, and a whole lot of love. I wouldn't want to belong to any other family. There's a joy that comes with being a part of our family.
What Is Your Favorite Thing to Do as A Family?
The Lumar family loves to eat. We do these huge cookouts where we grill; the food is fantastic. We also enjoy doing lots of shopping together as a family.
What Do You Want to Remember About This Season in Your Family's Life?
This has been a fascinating season for us so there are so many things we’d want to remember. As you know, my Dad turned 67 this year (Congrats, Daddy Lumar). My mom also retired this year at the age of 66. We are so happy that she finally gets a chance to relax and rest. We also have other extraordinary news.
As you know, this is a family of mostly girls. We finally have a boy in the family with my grandson Jace! We are so excited and happy about this. Everyone loves Jace.
How I Did at The Waterfront Park Family Session with The Lumars
I loved the fact that Nekedra gave me a chance to capture her lovely family and spend the day with them. This day was made all the more beautiful by the location of the session. Mt Pleasant is a lovely park, and I enjoy the time spent there.
I captured all the members of the family together and by themselves. They were their fun selves as I shot away. The atmosphere added to the beauty of the photos. Mt Pleasant is a great place for family sessions, so if you're thinking of having one, you should reach out to me. Family love is beautiful, and I love the fact that I was able to capture that here. Shoots like these make me remember how much joy comes with photography and why I chose to do it.
