This sweet family wanted to document this time in their lives as their youngest son recently turned the big ONE. They agreed to meet me for a sunrise shoot, which I know isn’t easy; trying to get camera ready and corral little people out the door before the sun is even up. This is often my favorite time to shoot though. The light is beautiful and there are no crowds.
Their oldest made my job super easy – he was all about the camera and never stopped flashing that beautiful smile. Little guy here just wanted to swim because, toddler. It is a frequent problem when shooting close to the water but who could really blame him? It was already a zillion degrees outside and a swim sounded pretty good to me too. How handsome are these two guys though? And that red hair!
This was a new location for me; a rocky little beach tucked away in an empty RV campground. I think it made for a beautiful spot and goes to show, you can make nice photos just about anywhere. We even had a brief visit from a manatee!
