*S* Family photos at a beautiful beach | Ventura Family Photographer

I recently had the pleasure of having *S* family photo session at this beautiful beach in Ventura County. It was a lovely day at the beach, and we had such a great time capturing some special moments.

Cassi and Joe are the proud parents of two adorable children, Emily and Dylan. Cassi is a marketing executive for a food manufacturing company, and Joe is an EMT who loves to help people. They are both from Grass Valley in Northern California, and they have been together for 20 years, with 13 of which they’ve been married. Happy upcoming Anniversary to you guys!

Emily, who is 7 years old now, is a bundle of energy. She loves dancing, music, jujitsu, horses, and reading. Her little brother Dylan is turning one this month and he’s already on the move and loves to play with anything that isn’t a toy, like keys, phones, and tools. So cheeky, isn’t he? 🙂

When Cassi reached out to me about doing a family photoshoot, I was thrilled. They hadn’t done anything like this since Emily was a baby, and I knew it was going to be a special experience for them having 1st professional photographs as a family of 4. We decided to go to the beach as this is one of Emily’s favorite places.

During the shoot, I was able to capture some beautiful moments. Cassi and Joe were so loving and attentive with their children, and Emily and Dylan were both so sweet and playful. We all had a blast!

Thank you for having me, dear Cassi and Joe! It was truly a pleasure to get to know you all and photograph all the love that you share.
