Baby's First Year and Beyond

A Magical Beach Session for the Sweetest 2 Year Olds


I’m in love with the beach. If you’re a beach family, there is no better location for your family portraits than Greenwich Beach! And what’s better than getting together with one of your favorite client families for a birthday celebration on the beach (times two)?! The twins turned two, and mom wanted a family beach session with her special people, complete with sandy toes and plenty of splashing! I had the best time putting together this gallery, and it sure looks like they enjoyed themselves, too. The beach brings out the best in little kids, and this family knows how to have fun! Of course, the beach also provides a stunning backdrop for your family pictures.
As usual, I have plenty of photos for you to see!

We were greeted by gorgeous golden light. I love the twins’ classic nautical ensembles. So magnificent!

This session was about as close as I’ve ever come to just one marvelous family play date. And what a perfect place to play as a family! The beach makes family fun even more fun!

Some things never change, and two year-olds splashing in the water are as cute as ever! Of course I encouraged them to splash as much and as big as they wanted to! Then dad came in with that calming dad presence and I was able to capture some beautiful, poignant photographs to round out the gallery. Pure love!

For a fun activity, the kids got plenty of tosses in the air, twirls and jumps with mom and dad! Give me all the pretty golden hour lighting and those radiant smiles. I just adore this family!

Kisses for mom and dad were a must. Are two year-olds even two year-olds without them? And I can’t get enough of the gorgeous setting. Greenwich Beach is simply stunning!

Anytime I get to visit the beach with my clients, it’s a treat! I was so happy to capture special birthday memories for these friends.
