Kids remind you to take time and go fly a kite – Unknown  

And Maria Oliva-McKeen of Olive Light Images reminds you to make sure to photograph it!  What a bright and beautiful lifestyle beach family photo session we have on the blog today! The sun is setting on the summer season and this session was a fun feature to segway into fall season.  Thanks for sharing Maria!

What We Love:

Maria:

One of the reasons why I love and chose this one to submit of my recent sessions is because of the energy and fun this family had while I documented their afternoon.  One of the biggest moments was this little boy’s first time flying a kite!  He also braved the cold, Southern California water because he couldn’t resist the splashy fun.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did documenting it.

Rachel and Lisa:

We really enjoyed the color and movement in these images which complimented the pure joy on this family’s faces.  Family “firsts” are especially important to document and we love that Maria was able to curate such an entertaining session including a “first” time flying a kite.  We are even happier that Maria chose to share it with us here at Life + Lens Blog.

Gear:

Camera:  Nikon D700

Lenses:  Tamron 24-70 and Nikon 50mm

Location:  Salt Creek Beach, Dana Point, California
