We vacation every year on the beautiful white sands of Florida. Our friends come at roughly the same time. I was thrilled when they asked me to photograph the children this year at the beach! Cuties, all of them! We took some formal portraits and then we went down to the beach and just let them go…this is when the real smiles and personalities came through and I love that the most! One dancing, one playing ball, one making sand balls, one being rocked in familiar arms, and another just being herself and playing in the sand and water. But all of them together: family. Real. Beautiful. Life.
