I Heart faces: Beach Challenge

So I took this about 2 or 3 weeks ago....we just decided to take a day trip to the ocean. It was so incredably needed! Beautiful weather, sandy beaches, laughing kids = The best kind of day trips and some pretty darn great pictures.....than last week my 10 yr old son Tristan was hit by a car ='( and was lucky to come out with mainly scrapes, bruises and a concussion. But as i was looking for which photo to use I saw this one and it reminded me how much i love my kids and how close I came to losing one last week and it scares the crap out of me =(. I don't ever want to take anything for granted again especially my beautiful children. and it also just reminds me why I love photography so much and why I take a gazillion pictures of them and will continue to do so. This picture is how i want my kids to remember there childhood loving, carefree and full of life!

  1. WOW... your little Tristan is one blessed boy. I'm so glad he is safe. And I'm so the same way with my photography. Just snap and snap and snap so many pictures Sometimes i don't know what to do with them. :)
    You picked a great picture. Looks like everyone was enjoying themselves.

  2. I am glad your son is okay... I know losing my child is one of my worst fears.
    This picture is wonderful though! I love the colors and the joy expressed in it!
