Here’s a quick tip for all of you struggling with finding the perfect location for your family photos this year… take them on vacation! Think about it, you spend a ton of money on a fabulous vacation to a tropical or beachfront location, why not take full advantage of the scenery and hire a professional photographer to capture a beautiful family portrait session for you? Or, maybe you live at the beach, and its been done, done, done, by everyone you know, but you want something unique this year. That trip to the dude ranch in Montana or hiking the incredible red rocks in Nevada and Utah make the perfect backdrop for a family photo that none of your neighbors will likely have.
This adorable family came to vacation at the beach all the way from New Mexico, so beachfront photos are not likely hanging over every hearth in their neighborhood. I am so glad that they got in touch with me and carved out the time to make some beautiful memories down here at the beach. Although Mother Nature wasn’t very giving with the sunlight that morning, the kids didn’t notice a bit and went straight for the water – brrrr!! And hello, those curls! I am such a sucker for super curly-haired baby girls, maybe its because my family is blessed with straight-ish, wavy, frizzy hair, but I just love love love those adorable baby curls!
