For this photo, we had to wake up before sunrise to make sure we had the lighting we needed. There was only a 5-10 minute window this was going to work so we had to get it right.
Bright and early and 5:30am we were up and headed to the beach which luckily was only a couple of minutes from Amanda's house. She mentioned she wanted to shoot there and get the sun rising over the beach but we didn't really have anything in particular in mind. We lucked out with the perfect sunrise and clouds in the sky. After the shoot, we went back home and immediately went back to sleep. We had a bunch of shots but this one was my favorite.
These are two other shots I liked as well:
