We met the Burke family through our good friends Katie & Patrick as they had their little daughter right around the same time as when we had Lily. Two days apart for that matter, it was a crazy coincidence! We thought it would be a great idea to bring them to one of our favorite destinations Dockweiler Beach in Playa del Rey [our hometown] for their daughter's first beach experience. First, as in first time playing with sand, first time seeing waves and the ocean, and first time seeing those massive flying beasts that are pelicans.
There's nothing I love more than heading down to the beach around sunset and just taking in the breeze. In LA it can get pretty chaotic at Dockweiler Beach in the Summer, but going around 6-7pm the crowds clear up a bit and everything is nice, peaceful, and calm. The perfect time for photos!
Watching babies play in sand for the first time is pretty much the funniest thing ever...until it ends up in their mouth.
