Although I wouldn't consider myself a morning person per se, I do have an appreciation for early wake ups. There is something special about being awake before the hustle and bustle of the day begins, watching the sun slowly make its way above the horizon. On a humid morning this past summer, I met up with Aimee and her sweet baby boy Coen to catch the sunrise and take some photographs to mark this duo's first summer together. Despite the very early wakeup call, Coen was all smiles and giggles as we strolled the shore, dipping his toes in the water, stopping for lots of snuggles and watching the ducks swim by. The calmness that this time of day brings is incredibly conducive to soaking up all the moments with your little ones.
