Seashells & Sunshine~ Mentink Family

Family. There is nothing quite like it.

I met this gorgeous family on a wintery, wet day. We'd already had to reschedule once, but just as we arrived down to the beach the sun came out and it was magnificent.

I love photographing families. The connections. The sibling love. The obvious joy and intensly deep love Mum and Dad have for their beautiful children. The little bits and pieces that Mum tells me about her children throughout the shoot.

Just as we ended this session Mum turned to me and told me she was glad we chose an afternoon at the beach where the children collected shells and played as Grandma has a special collection of shells all through her house.  Im sure these images will be extra special then.
