It was one of those perfectly days where everything just comes together.
Driving home from Hamilton a few weeks ago I took a back road and was inspired by all the beautiful wildflowers and the beautiful sky. I picked some flowers (thanks for the swiss army knife in my car Dad!) and raced home to pick up my niece (and throw her in a dress that I was waiting to give her.) I threw the crown together and half an hour later we were on our way! Eliza loved her special flower crown. These two silly photos are my favourite! I printed the one on the right in a 16×20 and framed it. It’s GORGEOUS – print your photographs people, there’s nothing better!
After the flower portraits we headed to the beach for my second wave (ha!) of inspiration. I was hoping that it would downpour (as it had been off and on for my whole drive home) and I wanted to capture the stormy beach in these portraits. It didn’t rain and Eliza refused to standing the water and get her dress wet, but I love how these ones turned out anyways. I was hoping to get a few more variations, however Eliza fell into the water before I could continue. She was not pleased, ahhh, memories.
I have photographed Eliza every Spring and Fall since she was born, I love how this life series is coming together. I just love this girl so much! She is such a little lady, way too mature of her age. So loving and smart. I could go on and on. I’m one proud Auntie. I hope one day she reads this and knows how much I love her.
