Last summer we had the wonderful fortune to spend a week with some dear family friends in Laguna Beach, CA. Waking up to the sound of waves crashing outside your window never gets old. We swam (with sting rays and leopard sharks), had many a BBQ and plenty of sunsets viewed from the hot tub on the roof. Once you overlooked the sting ray attack (I was thankfully not the victim, but it ended my ocean swims), it was a truly lovely week. Thankfully the hot tub was free of ocean wildlife.
The star of the week was not a stingray, but baby Caleb who had been born just a week before and thanks to his rock star mama, joined us at the beach. This session with his big sis, Bella, was shot when he was exactly one week old. He was an awesome little model and perfectly behaved. His sister, was a little more demanding. She refused to start the shoot until my husband (her crush) was present. We had to call him and make him come upstairs to where we were shooting. Once he was in the room, Bella was ready to ham it up. Models.
