We met in the early evening at a little beach area near their home. I always chat with Mom or Dad in advance and recommend a few things to make the shoot run smooth for all of us, and that might make it fun for the kids…. some favorite toys, beach blankets, a change of clothes. Truth is, when you have children from birth to five years old, it may be all you can do to just show up at the session, and I totally GET that!! So, I always keep my expectations very low. I have been there myself after all….But, Leslie and her family showed up ready for action and I mean ACTION! They brought their cutie pie boys, the props, the snacks, the diaper bag, and they didn’t stop moving, playing and exploring the beach until we were done with our session 90 minutes later! There were kids flying through the air, bubbles floating by, Dad chasing boys, Dad chasing Mom ; ), piggy back rides, ukelele playing, baseball’s pitched … even some sand eating, but it was all good! They were up for a beach shoot and ready for all that it entails, which often means getting sandy and wet. It’s all in the attitude, these guys had the best possible, and it shows!
