“Do small things with great love.” ~ Soul Pancake
Recently, I had the privilege of spending a Saturday morning at the beach in Half Moon Bay with two beautiful, little girls. We were there to get some snaps for the annual Christmas card and updates for the parents and grandparents. The older daughter, serendipitously, is a member of the Class of 2020 =). It seems appropriate, in my efforts to stay true to my blog, that I share moments and thoughts from this particular photo shoot.
These captured moments lend to my goal to remain true as straight photographer (look it up) in a digital world. In my amateur days, I was once told by a professional that I must define myself in order to be a successful. You must promote yourself as garden photographer, an equestrian photographer or commercial photographer. Well, those who know me know why I will never compartmentalize myself or my photography.
The girls were a delight. Always wondering and worrying if I got the shot, I paced a bit and stumbled over some seaweed that, when hooked in my toe, began to form an arc. The girls looked at it, and, saw a heart. They finished creating the seaweed heart, and, then giddily went on to make their own in the sand. Two beautiful, loving sisters at the end of magical morning at the beach. The last shot of the day (the one above) is always my favorite.
Peace and ♥
