cayo coco, cuba - an evening beach walk

Cayo Coco 2013

If you know me well enough, you'll know a little teeny tiny photoshoot is compulsary!

Of course, I never say something like that out loud... I just put nice respectable clothes on the girls and drag my camera along. No expectations! Actually, speaking of respectable dresses, Phebe is wearing her 'Cuba' dress and Lilah is wearing a dress I bought last year, from a store on Etsy called Palm Tree Princess.

And I was very proud of myself, because I only did the 'photoshoot' thing once in the whole seven days of beautiful and amazing photoshoot possibilities! Ha! Right? I know, very proud of myself. And on top of that, it was very casual... not too many stand, smile and look at the camera moments... well, mostly because a 5 year old and a 2 year old have a very hard time doing just that. And with my limited experience of two kiddies, casual is definitely the easier way to go, and the natural shots are always, by far, my favourites.

I was not expecting it, but when we got quite a ways down the beach, the sun was starting to set and another family came walking by. Much to my joy, they kindly offered to take a photo of all of us. It meant so much to me, and it meant even more when I realized it actually turned out quite nice too. We don't have nearly enough family pictures.

I absolutely adore my family. God is SO good.

  1. Did you just change the blog background or did I somehow miss that there were stars on here before? I love stars! If they were here before I can't believe I didn't notice them! In any case, they made me smile today!

    Great pics, as always! The one of you and the girls laughing on the beach is so sweet!

    And I love the one of the girls hand in hand from the back as they walk along the shore! That is so precious! You must have a dreadful time choosing which pictures to ever put up on the blog, let alone to actually put up at home or elsewhere with your girlies always providing you sweet (or funny) moments to photograph (and you being good about capturing them!)

    Have you seen the book Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing? By the same people who did the Jesus Storybook Bible? I suspect you'd enjoy it as much as you'd enjoy reading it with the girls. It's precious!

  2. Wow!! That family shot is beautiful! What a great looking family of four (so sweet to see Phebe in there). Love the shot of Mama with her girls. You all look so happy! And that beach looks soooo inviting.
