We recently took a family vacation to Virginia Beach. This was the first time we have been to Virginia Beach and it was beautiful. We went with another family, so I took my camera and we planned a day to take family portraits on the beach! They turned out great, even though it was an early morning and Hadley (the 5 month old) somehow had sand everywhere within the first several minutes of being on the beach. You just have to embrace the idea that you just spent at least an hour getting everyone ready to walk out on the sand. Here are some of my favorites, but don’t forget to check out all of the Shriner’s Beach Proofs Here.
