Good family friends of ours were enjoying some vacationing at the NC coast and decided to get their little girls all dressed up for a session on the beach. The Boyd and Gardner families have become especially close to one another as they’ve shared their stories of child-adoption together. It’s some kind of special to be around these families! The sun was setting, the tide was coming in, and the waves were nearly irresistible to play in. It’s tons of fun to spend time with these little girls and we love to make memories with them by photographing their lives all along the way – year by year, step by step.
