Your little guy is so precious! and funny, as long as I have lived here I never knew they had beach type areas up there…. go figure! Next time I go spend a few days with Ed and Heather in Big Bear I should swing by and spend some time with you! or next time Cindy comes up maybe she can stop by and get me :o) Keep on keeping on with your photos…….. life is precious! Luv ya

I LOVE how soft the lighting is on these Jess! Usually the beach can have such harsh sun from reflecting off the sand and water! What is one of your best tips on how you captured such a soft light?

And seriously, I can’t believe HOW BIG Zach has become! This is insane! He is growing up SO FAST! Wish we lived closer and could join you on a beach afternoon excursion!

@Tina thank you so much!! And so glad I wasn’t the only one 🙂 Loved your post girl!!

@Melanie thanks, Mel! I know, me neither! Best kept secret 🙂 And that would be awesome! Would love to see you!! 🙂 xoxo

@Me Ra thank you, Me Ra! I know! He is growing up way too fast…as are your kiddos! I wish we lived closer too 🙂 That would be awesome!

Yes, the lighting was really difficult as it was around 2pm. I noticed that there was a tree actually providing some shade toward one side but it was windy! So, I moved him over there and would focus and wait for the leaves to blow just right to shade his face…haha! Now, most beaches won’t have trees 🙂 One of my favorite places to take pictures on the beach if it’s not close to sunset is under a pier! You can usually find some nice, even shade for your subjects, and still get the gorgeous beach backdrop! xo

Gina + Jay {Denver Wedding Photographer}

it was a classic story of boy meets girl…while at a work conference 🙂 Jay tells the story of seeing her in the brochure that was handed out, and being drawn to her beautiful smile. Gina loves to share about how they purposely avoided each other, even though there was definitely chemistry there that week. […]
