Sometimes candid photos are the best photos... I met this adorable family for the first time last week. They have the cutest one year old little girl. This beach photo session took on a feel and style of its own, which I love. I like to think of myself as a lifestyle photographer but with direction. I don't believe you can just pick up a "fanny" camera and stat shooting with the hope a good photo jumping into the frame, there needs to be direction and purpose from the photographer. But when working with young kids you need to follow their lead. Which is exactly what we did, and little Mia directed the photo shoot with great results. I am excited to share these beautiful photos of this beautiful family with you.
