One of my favorite things is going to the beach. I don’t care if its hot (all though I do prefer it!) but I just love, as my son says, “watching the waves”. I made it a goal this year to spend more time with the kids…going to the beach. Its just as much for me as it is for them. Its my favorite thing to do with them…where they can spend the day outside, digging in the sand and spashing in the water…and I can bring a book, build a fort and tell them all about the clams, mussels and seaweed that we find.
This spring break, my husband had to go out of town for work, so the kids and I stayed the night in a cabin with my mom in La Conner. The Cabin is steps from the beach and luckily, the weather was perfect.
Ok, ok…I think I might have said this before, but I am officially a bird nerd. Its not that I love birds…I just find them fascinating. And when there were 3 bald eagles, perched up on the tops of trees at the beach…I felt like I was in a National Geographic television show. It was really amazing. They talked to each other ( i don’t know the official term for that) and then swooped down and caught some fish with their huge talons….and then hung out some more. Right before we left, one flew so low over head that my daughter and I could hear the feathers ruffle. It was amazing.
I love when kiddos lose their two front teeth. It is such a short window of time where they transition from a little kid, to having their big kid teeth. I’m so glad I got this shot of Estelle…loving life, loving spring break and showing off her lovely smile!
I love photographing on the beach. Email me at Kaylee@eylanderphotography.com if you would like me to capture your family doing what you love on the beach….or if you are getting married on the beach…even better! :)
