So, when our good friends, the Llewellyn family, came out to visit us and bring their family to Disneyland this spring, we were so excited to see them. And though they had a pretty packed week, I mentioned that I would be happy to fit in a photo session while they were here. The only day available was the morning of the day they would be heading back to Utah. Because the sun rises quickly, and the mid-morning sun can be harsh at the beach, we’d have to start early – like around 7:00 – will that work? They were game – but poor Lisa was up until 3:00 that morning and then had the get everyone up super early to eat breakfast, get dressed, pack up their week’s belongings and check out of their hotel at Disneyland! And everyone had stayed late to watch the fireworks at Disneyland the night before! So it was one tired crew that showed up at the beach that chilly May morning. And in spite of the cold and exhaustion, everyone did great! The boys were so well behaved and we had a great time together. My hubbie and kids came and met us at the beach after our session and we had a grand time chasing waves and collecting seashells. Sorry for the wait to see your images Brian and Lisa – I am just finally starting to get caught up! But I hope you will agree when you hang the prints in your home that it was all worth it! Enjoy!
