Sometime it is just like magic, when everything just falls into place perfectly. The perfect client, the perfect wardrobe, and perfect connection. This session happens to be one of them.
Bonnie and her family were coming to Orange County, California for a visit and wanted to do a family session at the beach. Luckily, I had her date and session time available. We scheduled the session to take place at Chrystal Cove State Beach and went over all the details. I was envisioning a yummy golden hour session, but the weather had different plans entirely. It was grey and cold at the beach. In fact it was so chilly that this lovely family from Minnesota was cold!
As this adorable family came strolling down the beach, I noticed the awe and amazement in their boy's eyes. It was then that Bonnie told me that this was the first time her boys have ever been to a beach and seen the ocean! What?!?! It was then that I started shooting and was able to capture the true happiness of a first time beach adventure.
Honestly, it felt magical. I felt like I was experiencing it for the first time. The first time your feet feel the grains of sand, the first time you feel the chill of the Pacific Ocean on your legs, and the first time you realize how vast the ocean truly is. Magical...all of it.
So, a huge thank you to Bonnie for selecting me to document this first that your boys will never forget. I am truly honored.
