On Super Bowl Sunday I took my family with me to a session I had scheduled at Capitola Beach. We took it as an opportunity to spend some time together in the car, have my husband and kiddo play on the sand, and then go get breakfast at a cafe afterwards. As a family, we love those times together. And as a photographer, I love getting to photograph families in different places. So while I’ve been to Capitola many times, I haven’t had a session on the beach there before and was so excited for it. I met up with this sweet family who was staying there that weekend to celebrate their little girl’s 1st birthday. They wanted a family session documenting this moment in their lives, so that’s exactly what we did. I hung out with them on the beach, and then we went and got muffins and coffee afterwards. It was perfect. I watched the little ones have fun and laugh and the parents loving on them. All in all, it was a perfect Sunday morning, and I can’t wait for more sessions like these.
