Last week I got an email from Kate, who was hoping to book a session with me and explained that they were just visiting from the East Coast and would only be in California for the week. I think I can honestly say that last week was my busiest week of the year- 1 wedding, 3 portrait sessions, a baby (and HUSBAND!) with croup, a campout with the young ladies I work with in church, various appointments, and a house and family to keep up with. Despite all of that, something told me that I should take this session and make it work. I'm so so glad I did! A few of the images we captured that night are among my very favorite ever, not to mention, I truly would've missed out on meeting some wonderful people.

We met at Balboa, we played, we walked, we dug holes in the sand. It was a most beautiful evening.

*A special thanks to Stacie (see previous post) for coming along and taking care of my sick baby while I shot. I appreciate it more than you know! xo
