Family Day Trip to Seaside Beach, OR | Vancouver, WA & Portland, OR Lifestyle Photographer

We had the absolute best trip to the beach this past weekend. My boys had so much, as did Josh & I. I decided on the way there that I would capture the entire trip, and not just the perfect, posed photos on the beach. I love what I captured from our beach trip!

We left during the afternoon, and lucked out when both boys fell asleep for most of the trip. Seaside, OR is about two hours from Vancouver, but the route is very scenic and beautiful. The skies were overcast with the fluffiest clouds I've ever seen.

We asked Landon to fetch Calvin, so he protected his hands with his sleeves, and drug him back over. He's very dainty and doesn't like to get his hands messy.

I've never seen such long beaches. The sand stretched on for a while before you hit the water.

We ate at the Seaside Brewery and it was delish! We highly recommend the clam chowder.

We took a pitstop at Cannon Beach to get a few more photos. Unfortunately, nature called so we had to leave sooner than expected.

He was being a goob and had a case of the wiggles! And I hope I never forget what it feels like to bite those chubby hands.
