4 years old. Bittersweet, since she’s my baby. As you can see, she’s not a “look at the camera and smile” type of kid. Which is fine, because I wanted to capture who she is, not her “say cheese” smile that uses just to please me. I was a little worried about the beach shots. Middle of the day with the California sun…lighting nightmare – but this was really the only time we could do it. It was hazy but not cloudy, which created a beautiful soft light. My little E. Want to know about her? She smiles with her eyes. She asks me everyday “where are we going after nap?” (translation: “where are we going tomorrow?”) She loves to sing and dance. She is feisty, opinionated, sweet, bossy, and tender-hearted. Sometimes all at once. Oh, how I love her.
