Killian turned one; and to commemorate the time in their lives, this family planned a fun golden hour session at Breaker’s Beach Coronado! I think my favorite thing ever is when a family is willing to get down and dirty during a photo session like these three were. I had so much fun running and playing in the sand, and was seriously amazed at how stunning this Mama looked in her dress (which is from one of my favorite dress sites – Lulus).
Showcasing Killian’s sandy hands all over the place was so special to me. That’s what I’m all about – AUTHENTIC memories! Kids get dirty, and guess what – they get their parents dirty too! Let’s remember these crazy times just as they are instead of photoshopping all of the magic out of them.
Originally only Mommy and son were going to be photographed during our session, but we were lucky and Dad came home from his work trip right on time! I am so glad that he did, because these turned out to be some of my favorite images ever. I am still in awe over how absolutely gorgeous they all are together. And Breaker’s Beach Coronado wasn’t the worst background either (hehe).
