The weather here in Seattle is still sunny and somewhat warm one minute (it got up to 80 yesterday!!), and then overcast and COLD the next! I’m SO excited for consistent warmer temps, but they just aren’t quite here yet…
Which means…of course…layering. Oh, and I’m totally into tying a bandana or scarf around my non washed mom bun.
Like….this hair that I haven’t washed in 4 days? Let me wrap something pretty around it-ha! Notice…no shadows in this next shot?? Sun is gone! OH! And then back again!Photographically, it’s a NIGHTMARE to shoot in these conditions! ESPECIALLY if you are trying to take shots with a tripod. Don’t get me started…
BUT…I mainly wanted to come down here for Maya to play, so it really was fun to capture her in her element.
Although, she will still always say… “I don’t want to go to the beach!!
Uh huh… Love these next ones. There was this tiny rock that she balanced on. And then….just went in! Once she’s wet, it’s hard to get her out of the water!
Dress- Crewcuts (thrifted, but similar here)
Shoes- Children’s Place “Sequin Popstar Hi-Top Sneaker (thrifted, similar here
Keeping it Real…
The main problem now taking Maya to a beach is that she just wants to play with all the other
kids, and….they just wander into our shots haha. I tried to blur them out, but oddly, I don’t
know how to do that!
When there are others around, I aim to get one go for me, one go for both of us, and then just let her play. Which I love capturing anyways! And she has fun, which means…we keep getting to do this 🙂
