Oh the beach! I was asked to shoot at the beach more last year than any previous year. Evenso this ended up being the only beach session of the year. Why? Well, light is harsh along the lakefront and really the only right time for portraits on the beach is near sunset which happens to also be the worst time of day for most little ones. Mom promised these delightful girls were up for the happiness challenge. She was certainly right.

If your family is up for a beach shoot, plan for a late dinner, a slightly larger afternoon snack and loads of good fun!
