This super sweet family lives about an hour north of San Francisco. When we were deciding on a spot for their family portrait session, mom mentioned that they were more outdoorsy than city. The beach seemed to be the perfect fit. I had heard about Stinson Beach – but had never been. She mentioned she had been there as a child and that the location was perfect.
It was such a beautiful drive. We drove through San Francisco, over the Golden Gate Bridge and into Marin County. The Muir Woods were close by. Lots of meandering hills with the ocean always in sight. It such a great afternoon. Not a cloud in the sky.
Oh but was there wind on the beach!
Wow! This may have been the windiest beach I’ve ever been on. Regardless, the kids didn’t seem to notice. They were having a blast playing, running, enjoying being kids on a beach. And Keith does what he does best, captures kids being themselves.
This area is just so gorgeous. It is often hard to tear ourselves away and head back to Arizona. But we’ll be back – probably not till next June but we’ll be back! That makes me smile.
