I really wanted to take some beach portraits while we were on vacation, so on our last night in Destin, we headed back to the beach after dinner for some photos.
All of these photos were taken in about 5 minutes, as that is about how long the kiddos cooperated. It was also really windy, so I was trying to get them as fast as possible.
A random stranger on the beach offered to take a photo of all of us together, and thankfully we got one that is semi-decent. Even though Rosen is giving her fake smile and Saxon is showing his mean mug, I’m still happy with it. I was planning on doing some serious Photoshop work and combining us all into one shot if we couldn’t find someone to take the photo, so I’m glad that worked out.
On the photo above, I did actually do some Photoshop work. I took one photo of Michael and Rosen walking down the beach, and he took one of me and Saxon walking, and I combined them so we’re all in it together. We marked our spots in the sand to make it easier. I love technology ;-).
I know it looks like we were on a desolate beach, but that is thanks to Photoshop as well. There were a few people on the beach and some condo buildings in the distance that I cloned out. Seriously, what did we do before Photoshop?!
