Beautiful Sara! My husband’s daughter visited us over Thanksgiving this year and we were so excited to have her stay with us. I always make sure we carve out time to take family photos of her and her dad when she visits. It’s likely one of my favorite things to do with her. Last year we walked across the street from our house in Potrero Hill and quickly snapped some photos there. This year I wanted to take photos that were quint essential Californian. So of course we headed to the beach! It was her first time at a beach in American as a big girl (she’s from Holland) and I think she was as excited I was to run around in the sand.

We went shopping earlier in the week to pick out a special dress for the photos. She found this sweet pink dress with a diamond waist band. It was freezing at the beach so when we arrived she had on a pair of leggings. Initially I thought she should take them off, but I actually liked them on with the dress. It was more her style and added an edge of carefreeness which I loved.

We climbed around the dunes at Ocean beach and snapped some photos. Right when the sun was setting Sara took off running to the water. I of course ran after her to capture this fun moment on the beach. We were laughing the whole time because while I was running I was holding my camera out snapping photos like a crazy person. I’m so happy I didn’t face-plant with my camera!

I’ll be posting more photo of Sara and her dad soon!
