brothers at the beach in north wildwood, nj

I have four boys so when I met these brothers at the beach for this adorable family session, I saw my boys in them that was not too long ago. All the spunk and feistiness of small boys who are excited and exhausted from a beach vacation.  yep, all this was my life many a years ago.  Asking boys to stand so close while I take pictures always results in a shove, squeeze, or tight hug.  But it is so fun to see that phase and to relive this stage for just a bit.  Running is a must have in any small kid session mostly for me because it allows them to get energy out.  I love the genuine smiles that running and playing in the ocean in clothes at the end of the session always provides.  Who doesn’t love running into the ocean with clothes on anyway?
