When we were preparing for the beach listing all the things we wanted to do or try to do while we were there, I had only ONE "must do" thing on my list.
Take family pictures on the beach at that "magic hour". Where the light is so good, it's almost impossible to take a bad picture.
I knew that I would get moans and groans when I announced it was time to go and take pictures. But I wasn't going back home until we gave a nice, solid effort!
And I think it went very well. Definitely got some framers.
Bribing them with jelly beans helped a little too. :-)
