i'm going to tell you a little secret.
it's not a quality i'm proud of
but i'm going to lay the truth right out there for you.
i've been known to get kinda nuts about my beach photos.
before you roll your eyes at me & think to yourself,
get a real problem
let me explain.
i think you've heard me explain my absolute love of the beach
once or a thousand times.
our beach trip is 7 holy days for me.
i want to be outside on the beach during the magic sunset hour
i want backlighting & natural sunflare.
i want big huge open smiles & everyone just acting natural
all loving each other & me just capturing the moments.
well. obviously that's not real life. not everyday anyway.
on our last night in seaside we had just arrived at our favorite restraunt
& were told we'd have over an hour wait.
i knew by the time we finished eating my magic hour would be long gone
& i was totally disappointed.
we wanted our last night to be awesome, eating at our most fave destination,
a quick shoot & then on to more shopping.
we figured we'd head out on the beach with our pager from the restraunt
& hoof it down to the shore while we were waiting.
there were other people "in my way"
it was hot & everyone was starving.
honestly i took a moment & prayed
i asked the Lord to help me with my bad mood
because who can be all relaxed, loving & smile big
if the photographer is a total grump.
as soon as i shot it
i knew i captured my most favorite picture of all my girls together.
i asked the Lord to just help me with my own selfish disappointed attitude
He gave me a priceless capture that i love
of all my babies
