I was so excited when Julie contacted me and wanted to do a session at the beach. I have been wanting to go to Galveston for awhile, but I didn’t have a good location picked out and had just been procrastinating on exploring. Luckily, Julie was very familiar with Galveston and we found the perfect beach spot! They were the perfect family for my first beach shoot. We had the best time! They showed up ready to play and have fun. That makes for the best photo shoots. I could tell right off the bat we were going to have a blast, and when I saw Steve get all the way in the water with his kids, I thought to myself, “now that is a fun dad!” Well, I didn’t actually just think that to myself. I’m pretty sure I said it out load, too. And as a result, this might be one of my favorite family pictures ever!
Not only were they loads of fun, but they have two of the cutest boys ever! It took only a few minutes (and a few monster trucks) for the boys to warm up to me. I loved taking pictures of them…I think they won a special little place in my heart because they are the exact age difference of Connor and Logan and I remember so fondly when my boys were these exact ages. Derek was just finishing up grad school and we were getting ready to make the big move from California to Texas. But I digress…back to last night’s cuties… (okay, one more little comment…Julie is actually finishing up her grad school degree, and we had the same maiden name! So many similarities!)
And just a few more of the whole gang. I had a hard time narrowing down which ones to post, so I’m going to share several!
Thanks again, B family, for coming out last night! I had so much fun with you guys and cannot wait to show you the rest of the pictures! You have such a beautiful, loving, fun family and it was a privilege to spend my Sunday night with y’all.
