{I’m a little behind on the blogging, but this rain is forcing a catch-up! Hooray!}

I was super excited to be able to get together with one of my favorite families to catch some shots for Dad, as a gift for Father’s Day! We met at their favorite beach, and planned to just catch them having fun!

This proved to be a little more difficult than I’d first imagined… my little buddies were a little less interested in laughing and playing with me, and more interested in running in the water & rock jumping – all while looking in whatever direction I was NOT! Haha!

 I did mange to squeeze out some giggles, and glances though, and catching them being themselves was perfect!

In the end, while I was worried we might have ended up with less than a hand full of usable shots, I ended up with plenty of images that just melted my heart!!

 Oh, & I guess Dad ended up with a pretty nice Father’s Day gift as well! ;)

September 21, 2011 Farewell to Summer

“Did I just shoot my last beach session of the year?”

Yep, those were my first thoughts while getting into my car after this session.  Fall is rushing towards us – and don’t get me wrong I love Fall – but before we know it, it’ll be Winter.  Love Winter?  Me, not so much.  I don’t even think I can say I like it!  So you can see why my possible last beach session of the year might be just a little saddening….

BUT who can stay sad looking at the adorable faces?!  Maybe I’ll hang them up in my house during the winter to keep me happy! ;) (totally kidding – that’d be a little strange and my own children might feel a bit replaced! A Studio might solve that problem though! Someday right? Someday.)

I was so happy to finally meet this family after exchanging emails back and forth for a while.  The kids were too cute & so much fun!  Big brother had lots to say, and little sister had lots to mimic!   I heard lots of 3 year old facts & stories, shared lots of giggles, and had fun just goofing around. (doesn’t make for such a bad day at “work”, eh?)  Mom & Dad were able to just go with the flow and it made for some fun shots & great smiles!

I think I may have made lifelong friends, as big brother wanted me to follow him home when we were done!

Love it!

I’ll leave you with just one more… the very last shot of the day – try not to smile, I dare you!
