When a big extended family shows up with siblings and cousins and two sets of grandparents all in the mix, it makes for a really fun morning!
This sweet family, on their annual summer beach vacation, came to me because their friends had just done a shoot with me when they were on their own Florida vacation a couple weeks before. So I already knew they were going to be fun. We got together just after sunrise on what was supposed to be an overcast morning. Instead, we had hazy sunshine on a beach awash with tidal pools. And so much fun!
Looking so good, you guys!
I can’t say enough good things about these kids. They were kind. They were cooperative, with each other and with taking directions. And they were just so pleased to all be at the beach with their parents and grandparents and cousins. Except, after a while, the littlest guy. (He thought they should all be at breakfast together instead.)

I couldn’t have loved this session more! Thanks for making me a part of your trip this summer!
