The Beach

In Seaside the light is amazing...if you wake up early or wait till evening.  I took each of the kid's out.  There is always one kid who considers this torture...it was Isaac this year...I did manage to force him into one good photo.  The rest were easy.


We went to the beach every day...walked down our little brick paved street and we were there.


"A huge fish...this big...almost got me!"


Dad=Lifeguard


Sister-In-Law Julie=Excellent Children's Sun Screen Manager
(Thank God...because I'm the worst.)


And the only all-together photo I got of the kids.


I'm alright with it...we had so much fun, we never stopped long enough to pose.

  7. Wonderful photos. I have an Isaac this year. I got so many pictures with my youngest covering his face. So I got a lot of pictures of him looking at scenery in DC when he wasn't paying attention. But I'm not a photographer. You obviously are! Beautiful.

  18. Sometimes I don't mind living 1,000 miles from the closest beach. Other times, I do. Now is one of those times.

    Your photos are so dreamy and your kids are beautiful!

  21. I think I love your family more after seeing your husband's shirt. Pure awesomeness. If that's a word.

    I love beach photography in general. We're headed back to La Jolla this year.....one day we'll make it to the other coast! No complaints. I love Cali.
