At The Beach

Can you guess what the theme is this week?

The Beach!

This is my sister in her wedding dress at the beach a few months ago.

My sister was also my midwife for our son's birth six months ago. We went to her birth center and our now three year old Elijah was there too.

Yesterday he saw a lady with a baby and said "We have a baby too! Ethan! Where did we get Ethan? From Crystal?"

Crystal, I thought you might like to hear what Elijah thinks! =)

Loving your photography! This picture is absolutely stunning. I have always been interested in photography, but recently got a Sony a200k and the Adobe Creative Suite3 so I'm ready to get out there and start taking photos! Hope to find tons of inspiration through the pages of your blog! :) Thanks so much!
