I'd be lying if I said family photos with a newborn & the highest energy 2.5 year old around was a breeze, but if you have kids, you already knew that! One thing is for sure...ice cream makes it a heck of a lot easier. Abby, Julian & gang were down to get messy so we walked around Manhattan Beach until all our ice cream had melted, our pants were sufficiently sprinkle covered, & the California sun was setting into the Pacific. 

Enjoy this little afternoon session of one of my all time favorite families in life.
