Four kids under the age of four that is. Try taking pictures of that moving target! I recently hit the beach with a longtime family friend and her two adorable kiddo's and their cousins. The weather was perfect and we had a lot of fun!

Getting everyone to sit still and look at the camera for two seconds was the task at hand. Some weren't so thrilled. Luckily this awesome piece of driftwood held them back for a split second.
My rule of thumb is just let kids be kids. These are the moments you want to remember not some stuffy posed picture with a fake "cheesy" smile (although I do love cheese)! And by using my zoom lens I capture moments like this without them even knowing.
These was a lot of this.
She was very determined to win "the race"... I call it a photo finish!
A little help from her big brother, how sweet. They will look back on this when they are teenagers and say remember when I used to like you.
And for the slower crowd, a little bit of this.
A shoot wouldn't be complete with out a feet shot!
We ended the session in the shade with M&M treats...hoping they would do the trick in getting everyone to sit together for just one shot.
Let's just say there was a lot of chewing and melting chocolate...
A candid shot of brother and sister. I think he'll be president one day.
And we've lost interest...
And the meltdowns set in...time for lunch and a nap!
Overall we had a blast and the shoot was a success...
