this fun family was visiting from switzerland and asked me to photograph them at one of their favorite places. the beach. i didn't notice the secret i heart u written in the sand until i got this picture on my computer. how cool is that? oh, and note to self: do not wear jeans to a photo shoot in august. and heat + humidity + high noon = really bad hair for me. if you don't want to end the photo shoot looking like a sweaty sea monster, stick with shorts and a ponytail.
