It had been over 2 years since I shot a family on the beach. When I lived in Southern California that was my specialty, but here in Seattle folks tend to lean towards parks or urban location. Why? Well, the beaches here are freezing 9 months out of the year! Luckily it was a warm August day when the Bailey family met me at a local beach for their family session. The beaches are beautiful here in Seattle and much different/more unique than in Southern California. I had a blast playing with the two boys who are a similar age to my own son. They collected shells, got their feet wet, threw rocks into the water, and waved at the passing trains.
