The sun is out and that means...BEACH TIME! Such a delight getting together with this sweet little family to capture the love and joy they find in one another! We met them at Cliff Beach on a hot summer day and, boy, we were not alone! Many people had the same idea to go to the beach, catch some sun, and ride some waves so we had our work cut out for us in finding areas without all the beach "traffic." Little Ivy was all smiles the whole entire shoot and we COULD. NOT. STOP. gushing over how cute she is! (C'mon, seriously, she's like a little doll with THEE CUTEST smile!)

We've known Mark and Abby for many years and were able to take their maternity photos last year! We always LOVE seeing the "before and after" of the families from maternity to when the babies are born! You can see that they radiate so much joy and love for one another!

Before the photoshoot, we passed a little tiny patch of purple flowers along a chain link fence and were able to get some whimsical photos of Ivy which was such a good decision in the end! All in all, we caught some sun and laughs and some SUPER cute photos! Enjoy!
