I had the opportunity to work with two families on the day before the parents were to be married and the family to become officially, a party of 7. The idea was to get some candids and a few relaxed shots of each of the kids and the parents before they had to put on suits and long dresses. So instead of trying to squeeze this in on the day of the wedding we opted to do a separate session at the beach.
So glad we did.
In California you can shoot at the beach pretty much year round but the weather isn't typically THIS beautiful this late in November. We were coming off a week of 80 degree temps. I did not plan on such a warm sunset.
Here's a sample above of both digital and film images. Can you tell which is which?

- Mamiya AFD (80 2.8) film: Provia, Portra 160 (at 400 ISO)
