a family day out

by the beach in Helsinki

It was obvious right from the start when me and Kirsikka were planning her family's shoot, that we'd go by their favorite beach in Finland. The beach was right around the corner of where they lived, where the parents went regularly for jogs, adventures with their sweet girl, and for lunch at the nearby cafe.

It was beautiful to witness, how their daughter is really the apple of both of her parents' eyes. And no wonder, as she is the cutest thing!

We had this shoot a few weeks prior to them getting married, -you guessed it, by a beach. So having a shoot before the big day is a lovely way of creating some memories, getting to know each other a bit better and to get them comfortable being in front of my camera.
