A couple months ago we had family photos taken at the beach. We found out a photographer we knew from Seattle was going to be in town doing mini photo sessions and we took the plunge. It has been a long time since we had photos taken and the girls are growing up so fast. We just wanted to freeze time for a second and remember this time. Well, remember we will. 
 The day started out overcast but ended up being just perfect. Not too hot, not too cool.
 We had a great time in Huntington beach, caught up with some dear friends we haven't seen in forever. Played in the sand. It was lovely.
 We only had 30 minutes of the photographers time so we knew we would need to make every minute count.
 What you may not realize from these photos yet, is that one member of the family was feeling less than cooperative. I mean, REALLY less than cooperative.
 Can you guess who?
 Well, it was not this little poser. She couldn't get enough of the camera. A natural for sure.
 We did get some amazing shots that we will cherish forever. Or maybe we will laugh at them some day as they are made into a coffee table book of "early 2000, family beach photos" much like the now famous 1990's family photos in all denim.
 A little bit of magic that day, went a long way.
 Well, magic and one little yellow blanky named quacks.
 We were all wiped out by the time it was over. I can only imagine how wiped out the photographer was!
 Ok, now can you guess who was not entirely enjoying herself?
Partly she did not want her feet in the sand.
 Partly we skimped on the nap to get to the beach on time.
Partly she only wanted to be held by mom, the whole time. 
Let me tell you, it was a day we won't soon forget. Great job to Me Ra Koh for getting some awesome shots despite our less than enthusiastic littlest one.  We have enough beautiful photos to cover our walls and enough hilarious photos to hold over our little one's head for a lifetime.
