{PERSONAL POST} Family Beach Session

August 26, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

It's no secret that I LOVE the beach.  I think (no, I know) that I could live there...as long as my family was with me.  ;)  I would LOVE to live on the beach for the summer and invite all of my lovely clients to visit for beach photos!! 

Because, one of my favorite things about the beach is beach photos!  By now my husband and kiddos have learned that a trip to the beach will not be complete without a mini beach session.  And lucky for me, they are mostly cooperative.  We did have a few grouchy moments (from EACH of them individually), but for less than 40 minutes in SUPER hot and humid weather I am SO pleased with how they turned out. 

My family...These people are my heart and soul!  We had such a fun trip...can't wait to do it again!

MB2014-6139_Edit2_WebMB2014-6139_Edit2_Web My parents joined us for our trip this year, and my mom's birthday happened to fall during the week.  So, for her birthday, she asked for a group shop, a shot of her and my dad and one with her, my dad and the grandkids.  I can't wait to see the gallery wall she makes with these!

I think the shot of them with my kiddos is precious.

Tyler is our oldest son...8 years old!  In the first one I asked him to try and keep his eyes open, as he often squints his eyes up when he smiles.  Hasn't quite nailed the "natural eyes" yet.

MB2014-6303_Edit_WebMB2014-6303_Edit_Web Lucas is our middle child and is 6 years old.  He can be my moody child when it comes to pictures.  So, you never know what you're going to get when it comes to him!  I often here "I'm done picturing", from this little guy.

I'm pretty pleased with these especially! MB2014-6261_Edit_WebMB2014-6261_Edit_Web MB2014-6264_Edit_WebMB2014-6264_Edit_Web And our little princess, Kate, who turned 4 last month.

MB2014_6289_Edit_WebMB2014_6289_Edit_Web At this point, the kiddos thought they were done...momma had some other ideas.  I wanted just two more shots, one of the three of them looking toward the ocean and with the ocean in the background.

MB2014-6329_Edit_WebMB2014-6329_Edit_Web MB2014-6341_Edit_WebMB2014-6341_Edit_Web They surprised me by cooperating (kind of) for one more family shot.  (Thanks to my momma for snapping the photos of us.)

MB2014-6354_Edit_WebMB2014-6354_Edit_Web After I said "Ok, we're done", they took off to the ocean!

MB2014-6398_Edit_WebMB2014-6398_Edit_Web MB2014-6402_Edit_WebMB2014-6402_Edit_Web After running of some energy in the ocean, they cooperated for a few final shots.  I just love the soft sky and ocean in the background of these!

MB2014-6377_Edit_WebMB2014-6377_Edit_Web I am so excited to get these printed and up onto walls...they represent one of the things our family loves to do most together, which is why the photos are so special to me!
