I absolutely love photographing families year after year and watching how they grow and change. This year's session with the Swan family full-on included sweet Nola playing at the beach right alongside her big bro. The way she watched him was so endearing – he could chuck a frisbee at her and she'd probably forgive him.
Real life family sessions that are full of authentic play, love, and emotion are my fave. Capturing the essence of childhood absolutely does not require smiling at the camera and yelling "cheese!" and this session shows that. How sweet it will be to look at these photos in years to come and jump right back into the way life felt at the beach when your babies were little!
