I try to take annual beach portraits when we are away on vacation every year. The girls expect it and my husband smiles and goes along with everything, because he knows it means a lot to me. Luckily, the girls are used to it and it never takes long and they make it pretty darn easy (no tears or fighting or any of that photographer’s kid syndrome stuff). I do always try to get in the photos, but to be honest, most of the time I cringe and find all my flaws. This year, my husband may have taken one of my favorite photos of Grace and I ever.
