All right guys, thanks for hanging in there with me – this is the last post of my “Where Is” series (I’m back in town – mostly – for a while). It was a busy year! I’m so glad I made time for this trip, though, because it was just as magical as I remembered. I hosted our annual Sand and Sun retreat with Stephanie of Lemmonmade Photography, and we spent three fabulous days getting in as much shooting and editing and learning time as possible. The first evening was spent with four adorable children (and a dog!!!) and the light and the weather were perfection.
We took an afternoon to practice shooting in full sun on the beach – not the easiest thing to master but oh so fun to experiment.
The second evening we spent with a gorgeous couple expecting a new baby and a beautiful little girl. I took the opportunity to use a few of my specialty lenses because I love shooting with a Lensbaby when I’m shooting maternity!
The final morning we spent with the family of one of our attendees and while it was a bit chilly and way too early for the kids’ taste, we still had loads of fun and – bonus – the beach was foggy, which if you haven’t figured out by now, is pretty much my favorite thing ever. I’m also kind of a bird freak, so any chance to get a few birds in the frame and I’m a happy camper.
