No matter what shoot I do, there is always one photograph that I just fall in love with. It doesn’t matter whether the person/people I photograph love the photo… it’s something that only speaks to me.
This was a happy accident. I was trying to photograph her walking down the beach, and to be honest, I know what it feels like to be in front of a camera and not feel completely comfortable. Even if it seems like you are doing something so normal, when you are in front of a camera… we sometimes act a little robotic. Which is what a lot of the photos of her walking down the beach looked like. I didn’t exactly give her enough time to get comfortable. But in this shot… this one of many, she looks so comfortable. So happy to just have her toes in the sand and the wind in her hair.
It feels like an unguarded moment… which with candid photographs that is what you are looking for. Just the look on her face makes the photo one of my absolute favorites.
Here are the rest of the photos from our tiny little shoot. I hope that I can make it out to Boone NC in May to be able to photograph her more. I hope that this whole experience has taught her that the camera is not a scary thing and that she looks amazing in every single photograph.
