they are kind, playful, gorgeous, heart-filled, tell great stories AND they love the beach and surf together? done. i'm hooked.
i first photographed them when sweet skye was just 8 months old and we captured her putting her toes in the ocean for the first time.
now sister mya is here and we did the same for her.
this shoot was a full day of play. we started with nap time for mya and worked our way thru outfits, giggles, dancing ring around the rosie, the beach, and wrapped with a walk on the pier... carousel rides and bubble tea.
oh and just because we could (i was staying with them) we played the next morning too..
please forgive the way too many images in this post. i really couldn't help myself.
|good morning mya!|
|set this shot up to be replica of one we took of her sister at this age. be still my heart. those eyes!|
|mama loves to dress the girls in hats. i have zero trouble with this! LOOVE.|
|listening for 'elephants'...|
|mommy and daddy kisses.|
|and eskimo kisses.|
|brave brave girl. she was scared, but with daddy's strong hand.. she rode the fastest carousel i've ever been on. |
side note.. shooting while riding a speeding carousel... buurrgh.
