Thinking Outside the Garment Bag - There Was No Sleeping In This Morning

Some friends of mine wanted some family photos to document a time in their life where their family is about to grow.
So, at 8am this morning we met at Hammons Beach and set off to capture the budding of a beautiful family. There was no sleeping in this morning.
K and J were kind enough to allow me to share their moment with you.




























I wanted to create a mystical feel, something different, soft, and full of wonder. I thought the balloons and early morning fog would aide in this feel and look.

So after 1000+ photos, one super tired baby, a mama tired of tredging through fields and beach, and a helpful papa we were done. They were troupers! I came home and sat in front of my computer, polished off an entire bag of Pirate Booty, 2 Diet Cokes, and set out to make their moment noteworthy. Thank you Photodiarest for the nudge... I feel good about these photos.

I hope I succeeded. :)
