Ash on the Beach - Melbourne - Family Portrait Photography
It's not often I get this one to agree to letting me stick my camera in her face.But she was after something! So I made the most of it. 'Sure Darling, you can do that. Hey - would you mind coming to the beach so I can take some pics?'
We have a beach 5 mins walk from our house - we are insanely lucky. However, I was keen to take some portraits at a different one - about a 15 min drive away. There was a bit of eye rolling when I told her my plans - and then I gave her my well practiced 'look' which clearly reminded her of what I'd just agreed to let her do (nothing too major by the way, just 2 sleep overs in a row - but normally we only allow 1 a weekend - so it was worth something to her!) We timed it beautifully - the light was perfect. AND she was a trooper! Did everything I asked of her - including walking out to the rock - even though she didn't have her swimmers and it ended up looking like she pee'd herself (her words, not mine!).
I love these pics of her AND they terrify me! I know she's growing up and these prove it. She's beautiful and doesn't see it, so is prone to pulling some ridiculous faces! Funny faces or not, I think she's gorgeous.
I just hope I don't have to resort to bribery every time I want some pics of her! AND I will resort to it - every time! It's worth it to have these memories with her!
