Ever have neighbors you can also call friends? Yeah? Me too. And this family is one of those for me. We chatted about what they were looking for in a family photo session (casual, authentic, beach, had to include the new family bulldog) and planned from there. Love the winter beach sessions. On one hand I always miss the long summer days but for photography, the short winter days can be perfect. We headed to the beach around 4:00 pm which was perfect to catch those last rays of sunlight (and get some great flare and haze). Plus what is better than watching the sun set over the ocean at the end of a photography session? Contact me here to find out more info about scheduling your own beach session.
