elena & kids

we had to run away.  in the late fall, elena and i started talking about scheduling a beach photo shoot. we were really looking forward to taking some photos of the kiddos wearing winter hats and oversized scarves. after having to reschedule a few times we were finally able to make a date stick. unfortunately that same morning the sky was grey and menacing. the winds were letting themselves be heard. as adventurous women we decided to give it a shot anyway, and we ventured out into the wild. the weather held out for quite a while and the kids had a great time playing on the beach, then just as quickly as we got there it started hailing. it came by so quickly that we had no option but to hide under a little shack and wait for it to subside. still, when life give you lemons… we had a blast encouraging the kids to jump up and down in the puddles and see who could make the biggest splash.

all in all, it definitely worked out and we were able to get some timeless photographs that i know they will love more and more as time goes by. thanks elena for being adventurous with me!

we couldn’t have planned it. backtracking to when susana and i first talked about doing a winter shoot with the kids, victor and aitor, we had planned for some winter fun running around a mountain with oversized winter hats and scarves. the occasional puddle. pink cheeks as proof of the winter air. but nature had other plans. as the date neared we were suddenly surprised by a snowstorm. as one may suspect, we don’t get much snow in spain… at least not in this area. so we grabbed our colourful snow clothes and set out to have snow fights, race while your feet sink in, and scream down a slope on a sleigh. we couldn’t have planned it, but if we had it couldn’t have been any more fun.
