hornby island family beach photos with kathryn & her kids i’ve had the sweet pleasure of photographing kathryn & her kids over the years, when they fly back to the coast, back home, to spend time with family wrapped in the quiet beauty of hornby island. Even in the whirlwind of summer here, the days feel longer, more stretched out, in the lack of scheduling, the ease of lazy mornings & beachy afternoons. The light in the early evening is divine – warm & welcomingView full post »
