Okay! Who else is absolutely ready for spring or summer?! I am so so ready!!!!! I’m even more ready for some fun summer beach family photos in Jacksonville! Have I been mentioning that a lot? I have, a haven’t I? Well, I’m just ready to go to the beach!
For now we’ll let this sweet family’s family photos from my last trip to the beach inspire us and get us excited! Even though fall was upon us it was still warm at the beach and the Thruns took advantage of it. I love the soft colors mom chose for their outfits and the way the beach was just so dreamy!
We first met when this adorable family first moved the Jacksonville. I love welcoming new families to places I love and am proud of. We’ve seen done 3 family photo sessions together and I’ve been able to watch the kids grow. I loved hearing the stories of what they’re into like running the Gate River Run and how dad is the best playmate (examples below). They love to travel and value seeing the world with their kids and teaching them from life experiences. So awesome!
So let me be real here for second. These pictures seem pretty perfect don’t they? I think so. Everyone is smiling and tickling and ready for some fun at the beach. But that’s not how the session began. Little man fell asleep in the car on the way and was having a hard time waking up. He was a bit grumpy and had a few tears to shed. That’s okay, guys! Every session is not going to go the way you think it is but I seem to save it every time. I’ve been around kids and well, grumpy dads long enough to know what they need. A little breathing room and some good ol’ jokes. So, don’t worry if you think your family can’t pull off the perfect photo session. They can’t but I can. Trust me!
