I hope the week has started out nicely for everyone! I’m in the midst of preparing custom holiday cards for all of my clients who scheduled a family photography session with me over the past few weeks. It’s definitely a busy time here. I’ve been doing a good number of my sessions at one of my favorite local fields, so when my client wanted a beach photography session near La Jolla, CA I was excited for the change in scenery! Her boys were such handsome little guys. I worked as quickly as I could to get most of the shots before letting them loose into the water.
The boys were such handsome little guys. I worked as quickly as possible to get most of the shots before letting them loose into water, but they did not want me jumping around or running behind so much that it would make their mother nervous! As you can see from these photos here’s what we ended up with: a family photo session on our favorite beach near La Jolla (San Diego), California; where all was calm except for waves crashing against rocks beside us, and the kids who were chomping at the bit to jump in the waves. They were having such a blast and I just kept shooting away!
Beach photography can be tricky with little ones, but also a lot of fun. I love capturing the children just running around in the sand and splashing in the ocean. That is when you get the real smiles! As long as you know what you are getting into with the possibility of wet clothes, sand everywhere, etc. it will be great. I usually suggest parents bring a change of clothes for their little ones and a few towels.
