As a Myrtle Beach photographer who specializes in beach portraits, I often get to share in the excitement of a lot first beach trips for kids. It's another awesome perk of my job. This 7 year old from my home state of West Virginia came to Myrtle Beach for the first time over the weekend to visit his Grandfather and I was asked to do a mini session to commemorate this special trip. What a cutie pie. He was such a perfect little model but was even more excited to dig and look for shells after the picture taking was finished.
