Sunset in Salisbury, MA

I think the magical thing about shooting at the beach is how drastic the light differences can be minute to minute and how the photographs at the start of the session can look completely different from the end. It's like two photo shoots for the price of one! HA.  

But really.

This day went from kind of overcast and grey to the most gorgeous purpley pinkish sunset. The natural ombre in some of the #aftersunset photos are so delicious to look at. I'm such a sucker for big bold colors and this beach evening did not disappoint. 

Enjoy the blues, pinks, and purples. Enjoy this adorable family and their evening of fun on the beach.




Winter fun at Plum Island / I guess I blog now


Wyatt was at the beach was in September. It's hard to believe that he probably doesn't remember our trips to Plum Island from last summer, so bringing him back here was such a treat. We played a game called "Mama's bringing you somewhere cool!" He kept noticing glimpses of the Merrimac River on the way over and was getting excited seeing all the "wahduh" which was adorable. When we finally got to the beach he was so pumped, not for the ocean, or the beach, but the giant excavator moving rocks around trying to preserve the shore line. HA. Seems about right. When we did get past the giant piece of machinery it was amazing to watch him reacquaint himself with the ocean and the sand. I forget how blinding the sun can be at the beach, let alone in the winter where everything is so cold. We were there midmorning due to the toddler chaos of getting out of the house early. It took some careful monitoring to not have my shots be completely blown out but it was wonderful to be able to capture the moment when he stood there marveling at the waves and the ocean rolling in and out. And watching the giant excavator. And pretending driftwood was a baseball bat. Ah, Boys.
