Beach Family Photos ~ Session 2

I guess we'll call these pictures our official beach family photos for 2014.  To change things up a bit, we had the "crazy" idea of taking the pictures around a large pier.  I had seen some great inspiration shots on pinterest and thought it was a good idea.  While it was nice under the pier, I admit the lighting is a bit tricky.  Our camera couldn't decide if we needed the flash or not.  Of course, out in the bright sunlight was no picnic either so we just took what we could get.

What is it about brothers holding hands that just melts my heart?  I also love how "magical" this shot looks like these boys are walking down a long hallway towards a mysterious bright light through a doorway that will take them to some magical place.

The boys and I enjoyed a little stroll along the beach.

And of course, I can't take family photos without remembering our sweet Mattie and wishing she was present for the pictures.  If she could be with us, I think she would just be the cutest little toddler walking along the beach with her big brothers holding her hands.  Although I didn't purchase a lot of clothes past 12 months for her, I did just so happen to get this adorable little beach themed dress which I couldn't resist at TJ Maxx and had looked forward to her wearing it to the beach this year.

And as usual, I am several weeks behind on capturing the moments of our lives.  To catch up, I have some big and small events to capture, like the final days of our beach trip, first days back to school, new family additions, etc.  Life has been a bit hectic as we try to get back into the school routine.  Evan is going to be starting soccer again as well as another big activity that we hope he will enjoy.  In other words, just the normal crazy life of our busy family these days.  For now, I am going to let the boys take me out to dinner to celebrate my birthday tonight and then I am looking forward to getting an early start on sleep tonight.  The past couple of weeks have seriously tired me out!

  1. These pictures are so great! I can't decided which one that I like best...they are all so good! I love your dress. It's so pretty. I also really like the dress you chose for Mattie. It's very sweet.

  2. Oh Sherry -- the dress you had for Mattie is so sweet. I love all the pictures but the one of Brody and Evan walking away underneath the pier is my favourite. Can't wait to read your upcoming blog posts :)

    1. I think it is my favorite too. There is something "magical" about the way they are walking towards that bright light at the end like it is a doorway to some magical place. :-)

  3. Beautiful pictures. The pier idea was a good one. It's very different from what you have done in the past but still beachy and interesting. You got some really great shots! Mattie's dress is just precious. It would have matched your beautiful dress really well.
