If you follow my business page on facebook (here), then you know we had a pretty big event happen recently…. Daddy Hobbs came home!! (see some homecoming pics here) To celebrate and have a little family time, we took our annual beach trip a little early. The kids love digging in the sand and we all enjoy the time with our little family of 5. (It’s also nice to be near our friends in Charleston too!).

As always, I take my camera and attempt a little session on the beach with the boys. Usually it ends as it does for most photographers that attempt photos of their own kids…. poorly. I don’t bring out the “big guns” often because of this and shoot most of our daily life with my iphone. I know…. the cobblers kids have no shoes. Well, I am happy to report that this year was a completely different experience! I don’t know if the boys are getting older or if it helped going out in the morning vs the evening, but it was great!! Of course I miss that dreamy golden hour light over the ocean, but instead I actually got SMILES and happy kids! 🙂 So our cloudy morning walk on the beach will be on our walls at home soon… I have a very blank wall in my kitchen that has been crying out for some love… and we may have just what we need here! 🙂

SO – Enjoy! My crazy kiddos:

I will not be surprised if this guy grows up to be an actor. He is a riot!
