Goodness, I love beach sessions so much. And how could you not with a sweet little kiddo like beautiful little Emma. We scheduled this North Avenue Beach session at sunrise so we could get some gorgeous view of the city in the background before the sun got too high in the sky. I really think it paid off. We were super lucky to have such a clear and beautiful morning. (Check out some of my other beach sessions on the blog if you’d like.)

Miss Emma rocked her session. She smiled and played in the sand like a true beach bum. She was a natural. I think she was really in her element here. I was super impressed with her pleasant demeanor. Let’s be honest, it’s not easy being woken up in the morning! But she did great and worked the camera for her session. (And, for what it’s worth, her mom and dad did a great job too.) I love the pictures we got of Emma enjoying the sand and the gentle tide coming in with the sprawling city off in the distance.

I love the perspective of the skyline from this location. You’re close enough to the city that you get a full sense of just how massive it is, but far enough away to still get the whole cityscape. It’s such a beautiful city, and I feel really fortunate that we have gorgeous beaches like this one so close to the city. It’s nice when we can get a variety of landscapes and interesting backgrounds during sessions.

Saghny family, thanks for getting up before the sun for this North Avenue Beach session. Your whole family was so much fun to photograph, but sweet Emma stole the show (kids have a habit of doing that, don’t they?). I think these photographs are really beautiful and cheery. I hope you love these photos and look back on them over the years with fondness. What a fun (and busy) age!
