It feels like forever, but family beach photos are finally back... Yessssss!  We couldn't have asked for a better family to kick off the year with us at Island Beach State Park in Seaside Park, our absolute favorite beach location!  It doesn't hurt that Seaside is also home to our favorite place to grab a post session celebratory cocktail!  Check out the photos below to see why we had everyone at The Crab's Claw gushing :)

It was a gorgeous evening to photograph Kyle's first birthday photos with his family at Island Beach State Park.  It was warm, the sun was shining, and everyone was in a great mood {even if it took a little convincing!}.  We always talk about how much we love photographing growing families, and being included in their milestones, and this family is certainly no exception.  We started working with these guys way back when his older sister Sarah was born, for her newborn session.  We saw them a couple more times, and then we found out the news... We couldn't have been more excited that they were bringing a sweet baby boy into the mix!  Kyle was a fantastic little model for his newborn photos, and we're happy to say, not much has changed... well everything has actually changed except for the fact that he is an incredibly handsome and gifted little dude!  He definitely loved being with Mom, Dad and big sister Sarah the most, but we were able to trick him into some solo shots, especially when it was time to dive into that cake!  He was even a great sport when the balloons started attacking hime with that ocean breeze, haha!  It was such a blast seeing you guys again...enjoy!

Have a look at some of our favorites from Kyle's 1st birthday session at the Island Beach State Park below.  Do you have a favorite?!  I have so many, but there is something about that banner image of him playing with his mama with daddy and his little girl in the background.. ahhhhh!
