Minis 2

With toddlers around, times are always interesting.
B. A. Fennelly

This mini started as a beach mini, but this little nugget can get cranky at the beach so we changed the location to somewhere she feels completely comfortable- her backyard! My philosophy is this: make as many choices to please the littlest clients. Yes, golden hour is lovely, but if your kiddos is going to be tired and melting down, the lighting doesn't matter. I'd much prefer happy kids to any other variable. 

And oh my goodness, was she happy!! I could have photographed her all day. What a love.

Minis 1

Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.
-H. James

This summer I tried something new- I offered mini sessions each month of the summer, each month at a different location. It was SO FUN! I love being able to offer more options for my clients & any excuse to spend time at the beach is a wonderful "work" day! 

Here's the first family! Red heads are my favorites, but I'm biased.

Beach Relocation

To escape and sit quietly on the beach - that's my idea of paradise. 
E. Wickstead

Oh friends, it's been a year. After 5 separate hospital admissions, totally 89 days for my baby and a new health diagnosis for my daughter, we needed a getaway. But we had some restrictions on travels so we went a few miles south to the beach.  It was more of a relocation than a vacation, but so needed. We watched the sunrise, took a walk on the beach every morning, looked for treasure, rode the Carousel ("at MIDNIGHT" according to my daughter), had lots of laughs and ate lots of snacks. Here are some highlights if you want to see.
