Family beach vacations are tradition to many of us. Whether it’s the first or 50th trip to the beach, we often return to re-experience the joy we shared with our families in years past—and to create new memories to treasure.

Today, on WRIC-8’s Good Morning Richmond our own Mary Fisk Taylor spoke about how and why to make the most out of your family vacations to the beach. She reminded us that kids won’t be kids forever – each year is a milestone that should be captured, not just documented. {We will post the interview link on Facebook when it becomes available}

Mary provided the audience with 5 tips for successful beach photography and we wanted to share them with our readers in case you missed the show.

1. Pick the right time of day, sunrise or sunset not during the day to avoid squinty eyes and back lighting
2. Clothing does not have to match but should compliment each other and avoid super trendy outfits or clothing with lots of logos or writing on it
3. Keep an emergency kit nearby with hair brush, comb, product, headbands, bug spray
4. Take your photos early in the vacation before a possible sunburn since it shows up even more red in digital photography
5. Have fun with it! Be goofy and play around as well as taking that perfect record keeping image looking at the camera enjoy your time so when you look back on the images you smile at all of the fun times you had.

Jessica has been part of the Hayes & Fisk family for over 10 years. Her love of children is what originally brought her to us and our love of her and baby Carter is what will keep her with us for a long time to come! Jessica, her husband Alex and her son Carter all hold a special place in our heart and we feel so blessed to consider them part of our family.

Many of you will remember our first post on baby Carter a little over a year ago, when he was born. Now he has turned ONE and we wanted to share his first year with each of you. Our clients were so excited for Jessica, when Carter was born, and you all are always asking for updates and pictures of this adorable little boy.

We are thrilled to share with you Carter’s First Year in pictures and we thought we would also tell you a few cute characteristics and personality traits that melt our hearts.

First word – mama …As Jessica will tell you; he didn’t have a choice – she coaxed him. Followed by dada, of course. And then dog.

Favorite foods– Ice Cream (of course!), lima beans, Ritz crackers & ravioli

Favorite toy– Mom’s iPhone! And any ball..Soccer ball, encouraged by dad of course

Loves to dance – country music is his fav. Jessica says “At least he likes music like me, because he sure doesn’t look like me!”

He’s a total joker – Carter likes playing tricks on mom & dad. Jessica says he has a good sense of humor, if that is possible at his age.

Carter LOVES their dogs – he snuggles with them, chases them and even pulls their ears!

We asked Jessica and Alex to each give us a quote about their first year as parents and this is what they shared:

“This has been the best year of my life. I can’t really even remember what life was like before he was born, but I know for sure, I don’t want to go back!  Carter makes my heart feel more full than ever before. I thank my lucky stars for him everyday.” – Jessica

“Carter has change our lives for the best.  He is the joy of our world. Having celebrated his 1st birthday this June it is hard to believe that he was a newborn last year.  He is walking and talking like a toddler now.” Alex
