We just returned from a trip to Australia and I had so much fun photographing my friend’s daughter’s an their friends on the beach one evening. Australian beaches hand’s down are the best.
Claire is the second born daughter of my friend Sarah. She’s a spunky gal always making me smile.
Living near the Bass Strait, the beach offers breathtaking views for miles on end. These girls were giddy to have some fun. They were full of giggles. Bonding friendships I hope they will carry on through the year’s.
This image makes me want to flash forward about ten year’s and re-shoot this same image when they are in their early 20’s.
Grace and her friend Ella also took part in the session. Grace aspires to be a model and she certainly is on the right track. Ella is a quick study and putting these two together, model perfect.
Graces is the eldest daughter of my friend Sarah. The last time I saw her she was about 7 year’s old. She is changed so much in those seven year’s since I saw her last. It amazes me how much a child changes in such a short time. She is a beautiful young lady with mass appeal, charm, humor and a smile to blow your socks off. I can still see her as a little girl, but I love the woman she is becoming.
I got to spend some time getting to know Ella on this trip, an she was a delightful girl. She is excited to take her first trip this year to the states, so we talked a lot about that. She’ll make so many great memories on her trip. I’m excited for her.
The wind was working against me that day, but I pressed hard against it and made it work for me. Ella was radiant and patient as the winds blew around her.
These two have been friends for about six year’s now, the best of buddies. They were so much fun to photograph together. I enjoyed working with all the girl’s. Thank you all for a lovely evening on the beach!
