My own girls have been clamoring: When can we go to the beach and swim in the ocean? My oldest is all set with her new swimsuit, ready to toss aside her flip flops and dash down the warm sand to the welcoming waves, which will be… quite chilly. She finds that last part very frustrating. I wouldn’t say we’re in swim season yet for those of us not wearing wetsuits, but there’s no doubt that the beach has an allure for so many of us. For portraits, the beach is an ideal serene setting that focuses both on natural beauty and the family.
It was a pleasure to meet the family featured in this session at the beach in Ponte Vedra, one of my favorite beach spots. This little girl is absolutely charming. She was ready for adventure and spending time with her parents.
The Daddy-daughter bond. It always makes me smile.
And, of course, the snuggles with mom are priceless.
Look at those sweet eyes.
What little girl doesn’t want to swing between her parents to the sounds of the ocean?
