I woke up and immediately ran to my window, tearing apart the curtains. Those poor curtains. I held them open, happy.
You see, planning a day of mini sessions at an open beach (no shelter) in the winter is a silly idea. Winter on Vancouver Island usually means rainy, stormy, winter Island weather. Not the sort of weather you want little ones to have their photo taken in. However, being an outdoor/natural light photographer, I need to embrace anything that is given to me. On this day, the wind was still and the sky was clear. It was beautiful!
Be prepared for many many photos of family beach fun.
