Today’s beautiful spring weather has me thinking about summer mermaids! It’s never too early to start prepping for these beach sessions. I offer mermaids throughout the summer, when the weather is hot and all we want to do is go to the beach. It’s a great time to have your child photographed in a gorgeous setting without having to worry too much about the heat. They are also great for all ages. Boys are welcome too – we can do mermen or pirates!
Anyway, this sweet girl was so excited for her mermaid session and absolutely loved her mermaid tail! She was so shy at first, hiding behind her momma, but it didn’t take her long to warm up. Once I showed her the mermaid tail, she was ready to go. The smile on her face was so precious! She loved looking at the seashells on the beach and playing in the sand.
The light for this session was absolutely perfect. Look at that beautiful golden light shining down on this little one!
One of my favorite parts about the mermaid session is the excitement when the kiddos see the outfits. These are all custom made and one of a kind. I have a variety of sizes, colors, and styles, so there is something for every mermaid. Also, no worries if they get wet – you can go into the water!
I love capturing the innocence and magic of childhood, and this session was one of the highlights. There is such a short time that your child believes in the magic. I’m lucky that my daughter is still in that age group, but I know it won’t last forever. Take photos of your kids – in all ways. Hire a professional, use your cell phone, take your own. Document their lives – and print these moments. Don’t just take them and leave them on your phone, or in a drawer in the office. No one has ever been excited about a USB drive in their desk drawer – but how many times have you smiled as you walked past that photograph on your wall, or that album from your shelf?
Happy Sunday everyone – go out and enjoy the weather. Be your own storyteller today – and another day I will be yours.
