Our family talks about and looks forward to our annual summer beach trip pretty much from the day we leave one year, until the day we return the next year. It’s truly one of our favorites of the 52 weeks, and I love the memories that we’re blessed to make and carry back home with us each time.
Of course for this photographer mama, taking pictures of my kiddos in the midst of this happy place is truly MY happy place. I look forward to my beach pictures every year, even if I am the only one who enjoys this particular portion of the vacation. I treasure these images and the ones I’ve been able to capture since my oldest was first toddling around in the sand.
This year was no exception. I wound up taking more of the boys just running around and playing in the sand and water. As my youngest gets older and more able to interact with his big brother, I love seeing them play together. I am so thankful for their relationship, and one of my greatest prayers is that, despite the inevitable sibling squabbles I’m sure they’ll go through, they will truly be there for each other and be the best friends that God created them to be.
These precious blessings of mine… running, jumping, playing, laughing, enjoying childhood… these are the moments I document and will treasure forever…
