We met the Reid family for the first time on the beautiful beach at Coronado Island. They are friends of our friends & clients, the McGuckin’s, who moved to San Diego a few years back. The McGuckin family had their own beach portraits made last January, and when they heard we were coming down for beach sessions again, they told their friends (thanks for that, by the way!). It’s unusual for us to meet a family for the first time at the session, but the Reid’s were so warm and friendly that it took no time at all for the kids to turn it on for the camera. The kids were full of life and had no reservations about showing all of us! We especially loved the interaction between the family, who clearly have a very close, loving relationship. One thing about our beach sessions we didn’t expect in June–wind! It wasn’t exactly calm and balmy for any of our beach sessions, and we just want to say thanks to everyone who came out and played with us and braved the conditions….you’d never know by the images that it wasn’t a warm summer day!
