I love being a photographer but I hate having my picture taken. Like many women I only see my imperfections when I look at pictures rather than the beauty that my daughter sees. Tonight I heeded my own words, "You children don't care what size you are or what imperfections you may perceive. They see that you are beautiful just the way you are! Don't wait to get in front of the camera. These are the moments they will cherish forever!"
I love working with families that love to have fun! When people enjoy life it shows in their images. You can just tell how much this family is having! This session lasted twice as long as a normal session, mostly because we were all having fun, we kept seeing good photo opportunities and I just don't put the camera down until we are really done (or it is too dark to see!) I hope you enjoy seeing this night as much as I enjoyed shooting it!
This is such a great time of year! We get to enjoy the sun and the beach! Especially after this last winter! Oh my goodness! We will savor every day of this now! One of my favorite things is photographing kids being kids and what better place to capture those moments than on the beach! A carefree place where families can relax and unwind and kids can be themselves. Love these beach babies!
So I planned on doing more photo restoration projects for Throwback Thursday, but my little baby who is no longer a tiny baby is feeling under the weather today. This is actually day 3 of her cold and she is bouncing back, tired and sniffling but otherwise good. Of course that made me digress to think of my cute little baby when she was a cute little baby and then start looking through some of the cute little pictures that I have loved the best of her. Here is just a selection of Little Lucy thus far!
So today was so not the day to be on the beach taking photos! Really that was yesterday, but we made it work and we had so much fun! These kids were troopers and they had so much fun playing in the sand, they barely noticed how cold it was. Their mother should be a stylist too! Look at the amazingly cute coordinating outfits. I had a blast and I am so happy with our shots! If you want to join in on the fun sign up for some family photos or join one of our mini sessions. The first date is listed below in my trendy new postcard, thanks to the Sanford Family!
