When we arrived at the beach the wind was quite harsh. I had props that created a sweet little old time feel, vintage if you will, but the wind was not our friend! The beauty and life this sweet little one holds took control of the focus as it should be and we were just find without the props! I am really a lifestyle photographer at heart and this is my most favorite to capture - people being themselves in environments that feel natural to them! "L" loves the beach so she was right at home! Happy Birthday L!
