When Amy emailed me awhile back about doing a photo session and a book to visually express the e.e. cummings poem that represents each one of her girls, I had to choke back tears. As much as I love being in control of the creative process, I truly love the collaborative experience of meshing a vision with someone else. I would love to do more sessions that incorporate the client’s lifestyle and personality into the shoot.
This session turned out to be one of the most scrumptious experiences. We walked down to Trestles from their house and if you have never been down there, one visit will cure anyone of wanting a toll road towering over this place (but that’s a whole other blog post). The girls were just wonderful to watch play in the water and explore the tidepools. I loved the setting at the water’s edge but the old wooden trestles, California native vegetation and sand dunes had me yearning for more time in the sand.
It was an experience traveling to the beach with four girls and Amy does it frequently all by herself. She was patience in true form.
