This was our first time ever visiting Manhattan Beach so we really didn't know what to expect. We arrived a couple hours early to check out the area and were pleasantly surprised to find a beautiful and quiet beach. The clouds began to creep in just before we got there, so that probably drove the crowds away - a tradeoff we were definitely fine with. Although it was a bit chilly, the light was just perfect for this beautiful family.
Introducing Julie, Brian, and their adorable 1 year old son Hunter. Photographing them together warms our heart, as they totally remind us of when we were on the other side of the camera being photographed for the first time. Time flew by as we kept shooting, but the cold weather wasn't being cooperative and we didn't want Hunter to get sick. We still had a great time with them and walked away with some great pictures. Here are our favorites.
