Virginia Beach Lifestyle Photographer – Beach Day
I am a beach girl at heart. I was born and raised in Virginia Beach and have spent many days with sand between my toes listening to the tide rolling in and out. I love the warmth of summer, the salty air and the wide open space at the shore. Winter is not a friend to me. I feel cold when the mercury dips below 65 degrees. The dreary gray days seem to drag on and I long for sunny skies and balmy breezes. I am thankful for the short, mild winters here in Hampton Roads. And I love it when the temp pops up now and then, giving hope that spring and summer are on their way. I also love taking full advantage of those rogue warm weather days.
That’s just what I did earlier this week! The spring-like weather popped in to say hello and I packed the kids up for an afternoon beach excursion. It was short-lived, but oh, it was heavenly! A beach day in March? Yes, indeed!
Capturing these fleeting childhood moments is so important to me. Every time I blink my kids seem a foot taller. You never know when that piggyback ride to the car will be last one, or that late afternoon snuggle on your lap will be the farewell performance. It just happens one day and then it doesn't happen anymore. I want to document as many of those treasured everyday moments as I can. And when I shoot just for me, I enjoy taking full poetic license to capture the moment as I feel it. There is no right or wrong. There is only my lens, my heart and the pieces of it that walk this earth outside my body. Here are a few faves from our afternoon at the shore:
It was a glorious day. The freedom to explore under the sun, to dig in the earth, to let all of life's worries blow away with the salt breeze and to just be in the moment - those memories are priceless. And I will enjoy revisiting them for years to come.
