I recently revamped my website and started a new blog. While I LOVE starting things fresh, I’m also missing all my old blog posts with Wellfleet family photos on the beach. If you know me, you know my favorite place to be in the summertime is at my family’s beach house in Wellfleet on Cape Cod. Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to take photos for several families on the beaches in Wellfleet. Something I really enjoy doing. So I wanted to share some of my favorite photos here.
Newcomb Hollow Beach Family Photos
Newcomb Hollow Beach is probably the most popular location for family photos in Wellfleet. I’ve had clients who got married on Newcomb Hollow Beach so it was the perfect place to come back and take photos with their son.
Or they have been going to that beach since THEY were a child. And now they have their own child!
Any of the ocean side beaches in Wellfleet are great for family photo sessions (Lecounts Hollow, Whitecrest, and of course Cahoon Hollow Beach). The beautiful dunes provide a stunning backdrop, and the waves are fun to frolic in!
Mayo Beach Family Photos
Another popular spot for family photos in Wellfleet is Mayo Beach on the bay side. I often suggest it because I love the old lightkeepers house as a backdrop. It’s also a little more accessible for those with mobility restrictions.
I even photographed a surprise proposal on Mayo Beach in Wellfleet once!
Uncle Tim’s Bridge Family Photos
Although I’ve yet to do a family session there, Uncle Tim’s Bridge is another great location for a small group or a couple session!
Duck Harbor Beach Family Photos
Popular for shell collecting and sunset viewing, Duck Harbor Beach is another great spot. On the bayside, it gets great light just before and during sunset. The pathway to the beach through the dunes has amazing views in both directions!
There are so many magical photo locations in Wellfleet. I even have a secret spot that I might just take you to….if you ask nicely. Here’s a photo of my family at the secret spot way back in the 90’s!
