Today I’m back in the archives, from our unseasonably chilly 2013 spring.

Of course, Melissa, who is glowingly expectant in these images, now has two children.

They’ve booked another family session this winter, and I can’t wait to meet the baby!

It’s a huge thing, to leave your kid in the mountains without knowing a soul.

As soon as we put his things in his cabin, he disappeared over the rocks and down the hill, shoeless, like a billy goat.
So I knew he was going to be just fine. But the way he hugged me when we left told me he was nervous.
Charles kept eyeing me on the way back down the mountain, saying, “Are you OK? How are you doing?”
And I was completely OK.
I mean, there were horses, a welcome llama, and a giant slip and slide that runs down the hill into the lake. How could I not be thrilled for him?

And then the week ended, and we were on our way back up the mountain, and about 5 minutes away from the camp, eager to see our boy, and I burst into tears.
The hubs gave me The Baffled Look (I’m not a weepy type person), and I said, “I just…I’m just so ha-ha-haaappy for him, and it’s so sp-sp-eeecial up here, and now he’s going back to ordinary boring home, and I’m not ready for his life to not be spe-eeecial anymore, not quite yet. Sniffle sniff sob.”

Moms can be kind of nuts.

The weather’s been a bit flaky lately.  (Wimps, the lot of us. We Lowcountry dwellers really prefer daytime temps that don’t dip below 70, or 60, at least.)

I’ve had a few beach photography sessions this month that haven’t really turned out as warm as we anticipated back when we scheduled them.

 

But my clients are troopers, I’m telling you.

 

Nicki and her fun, sweet family were visiting from Arkansas, and we had a wonderful time, despite the chilly wind.

 

 

Doesn’t Collin have the sweetest little face? Such an adorable boy. His grandfather definitely won the “get natural smiles out of him” contest.

I met up with the Parrot and Hopkins family last month at Seabrook.  They were celebrating their parents’ anniversary, and were such lovely people.

 

I know I say that about all the families I photograph on the beach. Of course they’re wonderful-they’re on vacation, having a great time!

 

But this family was particularly warm and fun. I had a great time with all of them.

Escapees!

If your young children do this at your beach photo session, no need be embarrassed. ALL kids do this.

Probably not a surprise to mention that this ended badly. But it was fun to capture anyway. I love boys being boys!
