Since the NAPCP Retreat back in January, I knew I had to come back to the beach and take some family portraits at sunset. Thankfully, a family wedding and my husband's work trip lined up perfectly and we made a family vacation out of it, with my camera in tow!
I first "met" Monique about 8 years ago on the What To Expect website when a small group of us were all trying to get pregnant. We ended up forming our small group on Facebook and have formed this amazing bond-- with some of us never meeting! We span the globe from all over the United States to Ireland, the U.K. and Australia!
When I announced wanting to do family sessions on the beach, she quickly responded and we couldn't wait to finally meet in person!
Both of her children are exactly how I imagined from her posts and even her ex-husband came along to get some photos with the kids. This absolutely made my heart smile because I believe that children should see their family in photos, IN PRINTED PHOTOS! No matter the situation. Your parents are a part of you and the very reason you are who you are. So, needless to say, the kids were excited to have both parents with them, having fun in the chilly Pacific Ocean and their toes in the sand.
Monique, my fellow Blue Lady, I am soooo happy to finally meet you! We've all been through so much and truly are all such great friends! I can't wait to plan another trip out to Cali and do this again!
If you'd like to get on my wait list for the next round of beach photos and available dates go to my post with session details and shoot me an email!
