A Winter Afternoon at the Beach | Cleveland, Ohio Family Photography

There are only a few things that I love about winter.  The first is that I can wear pajamas under my winter coat and no one would ever know.  The second is Rocky River Beach on a somewhat warm, sunny day and after a lot of snowfall in the days prior.  This combination does not happen often so when I saw the forecast I planned our day around coming up here for the last half hour of sunlight. 

The beach is a completely different place in the winter.  You almost feel like you are in another world.
