The Family Historian
In every family there seems to be one person in charge of memories. They take on the exhausting role of historian and work feverishly to capture major milestones, big events, and family vacations. Whether you love it (me) or feel overwhelmed by the demand (also me), you often find that you don’t make it into family photos yourself. I’ve actually had my kids ask “Where were you on our road trip through California?” “Why weren’t you there?” Um, I was the one lying on the wet, cold sand trying to get the perfect angle for that picture. If you look closely, you can see my reflection in your eyes. In other words, do yourself a favor. Put the camera down, take a break and join your family. Let some other fool crawl on their belly to get the perfect shot.
In this family, Deron was the one in need of a break. She booked her photo session, walked the 5 minutes from Four Seasons to Paradise Cove Beach, and her job as vacation historian was done.
An Easy Morning
On this early morning, we were delighted to find the little cove empty. A stray flip flop and snorkel left behind hinted at the crowds from the day prior, but for now it was all ours. We eased into the quiet morning with lots of snuggles and family time until the kids started to pine for the water. I had to agree with them. The sunlight hitting the water turned it a brilliant blue that seemed to call us. Into the water we went in search of fish, turtles, and more fun.
When Was the Last Time You Were in Your Own Family Photos?
Get in front of the camera for a change and join your family for an easy day at the beach. I’ll help you pick a great spot so you can just show up and focus on famiy time while I document your beautiful memories. Find out more about my family photography sessions here.
