it was an after thought to grab my camera (not iPhone camera) as we rushed out the door for an impromptu trip to the beach. i’m so glad i did. it was just a regular family outing, not a styled shoot, no planned outfits, no coordinating colors, just raw, real life that i captured. as a photographer, i’m always making sure everything is “camera ready”. it’s easy to get caught up in staging the perfect photo that more than often i’m missing out on the reality. don’t get me wrong, i absolutely love my job (duh) and styled shoots (they’re the best!) but, there’s something so beautiful about planning nothing and snapping real life. so, last night za, jensen, and i headed to the beach. we hadn’t been in so long, and jensen was tha-rilled (that’s how i would say it to emphasize how excited he was). he fearlessly crawled straight towards the ocean and into the crashing waves. za said he even duck dove like a true surfer! we had a blast on our impromptu trip to the beach and i’m so happy i captured the love between za and jensen. i know they’ll treasure these photos when jensen’s all grown up. but for now, i hope you enjoy them.
