Beaches and babies and bellies, oh my!

How great is your job when you get to go to the beach for work?  I met up with Trey, Ellen and Tim one afternoon in Sandbridge where they were vacationing with Ellen’s brother T, his wife Greta, and their kids Alice and baby Sadie.  It was a beach party, family style.

Alice, Trey, Tim and T walked the kids to the park to get the wiggles out while we waited for the sun to dip a little lower in the sky.

The kids hitched a ride on the way back…

I loved this shot of Trey walking back with the pier and surf board in the background.  Will Trey be a surfer dude someday?

Alice was all about posing on the beach with her little sis.  Trey, not so much, but I did manage to get one pic snapped before he popped back up!

You gotta love kissing cousins, how sweet is Alice?

And Sadie’s eyes, just captivating, oh my goodness…

We got a few shots with everybody:

And then some with both families:

How’s this for an ocean view?

And finally, sweet pics of Ellen and her son.  What’s great about these photos is that Trey is running to his mom to hide from his father, who is chasing him towards the ocean.  It was a great tactic for getting cuddle shots out of Trey…

I loved this photo, a little boy exploring, what is that?  A sea shell?  I zoomed in to find that it was a plastic soda cup lid and I completely deflated… my idyllic shot was of Trey exploring a piece of garbage.  Ahw.  But I got over it and posted it here anyway because I loved the muted colors and the spirit of the photo so much.  We can channel the spirit of a two year old and just pretend that its a seashell, right?

Then it was time to get the kids in for dinner and a bath and I got Ellen to myself.  Ellen is awaiting a baby girl any day now and looked stunning against the ocean backrop.  The light was warm and beautiful, the breeze was cool and comfortable, it was the perfect evening to be out and overlooking water.
