My First Beach Shoot! {Denver, Colorado photographer}

A month ago, I went to Oregon for my dad's 80th birthday party. All his kids were able to come (except for one daughter) and that meant that I got to hang out with my sister-in-law (among other people). Melain and I love getting together because she loves being in front of a camera and I love being behind one. The combination is always incredible! This shoot was no exception. We headed down to the beach (remember, this is February in Oregon). We were a bit worried because usually you get sandblasted at this beach. I'm not exaggerating. It is typically unbearably windy and cold. But this day, it was only slightly unbearably windy and cold! Melain was a true artist (in that she suffered for her art). It was totally worth it, though, as the following images will attest!

These are so stunning. Too bad we don't have a beach here! I think my favorites are 6, 7 and 8. What a great dress for these. I love the reflection and the composition on all of these.
