Summer is officially coming to a close and you might be gearing up for one last hooray at the beach. If you have toddlers or small children then let me help you out and make your packing list for you! And if you aren’t headed somewhere sunny this weekend then go ahead and pin this post and save it for next year! We recently went on our first week-long family vacation with both girls and their two cousins. I have taken the girls to the beach by myself before for small trips and we took Hayden last year when I was pregnant but this was the first time in the history of our parenting life that we were playing man on man defense for an entire week.
Earlier this month we went to Isle of Palms, SC for our first family vacation with kids (more on this next week). While we were there our good friend, Erin, captured some family photos for us at Boone Hall Plantation. I don’t share many personal things on the blog but I thought it would be fun to share these photos with you and give you some tips that we found helpful while planning for this session. Erin actually grew up in Zach’s hometown of Hendersonville, NC and will be in our neck of the woods at Sky Top Orchard September 24th-25th shooting fall mini-sessions. This would be a great time to plan a day trip to pick apples, eat apple donuts, capture some memories in your best fall gear and put these tips to good use!
