Next week is our first week of Summer. How are you feeling about it? Me? I could not be happier!! It will be my first summer as a working mom in a while, but we have an amazing nanny in place, a couple camps scheduled, some visits with family in California and Texas and our new pool – so I am super excited to jump in!! I love the relaxed schedule of summer, the trips to the beach, the endless afternoons in the sun and water. It’s is my happy place no doubt!!

But my favorite part of summer – always the beach! Anytime I can get to ocean I am a happy camper!! It’s so peaceful and just brings calm to my soul. It was such a joy to spend some time there with our dear friends this spring. And then to get to photograph a of couple families while we were there? I was in heaven!! The light on the beach in the evening is like no other. The way the setting sun reflects off the water and white sandy beach. Just magnificent.

Then you add in a beautiful family. And voila! You have one heck of a gorgeous beach session on the books!!

Mama is a super star tennis player and has been crazy busy competing up and down the state the last several weeks.  So art had to be put on hold – but now that tennis season is over (for now 😉 I can’t wait to get these beautiful photographs on her walls!!

Thank you dear friends for choosing me to share your time at Sunset Beach. I hope to visit your little slice of heaven again soon!

Oh to be able to shoot at the beach every week! Look at this light!!

And don’t you adore Mom’s earrings?!?  They are from one of my favorite small businesses out of Kansas City!  Nickel and Suede is this amazing little company that makes darling light weight earrings in SO many colors and textures.  Go check them out ~ and don’t tell my husband but I *may* have a more than a *few* pairs 😉

    Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my work Corinne! I really appreciate it! And I am so happy you discovered Nickel and Suede. I need to talk to them about getting a commission – I have gotten so many friends hooked on them! And their new summer line is about to come out – it looks divine!!
