I have said many times on this blog how much I enjoy helping people record who they are right now. Time passes so quickly. It’s so worthwhile to take a few hours in a favorite place and let the camera capture the silliness, the joy, just the being together. The moment.
Last weekend I decided to take my own advice. Hilary is on the quarter system, so she was back at UCSB. Grace is on the semester system, so she hadn’t started back up yet. We decided a girls’ weekend was in order in the paradise that is Santa Barbara. Saturday afternoon found us at Goleta Beach where I watched these sister friends be sister friends. I enjoyed every minute of it.
Hilary has quite a repertoire of animal impressions. Here she’s winding up to do her velociraptor.
Just a couple of goofballs.
Thanks, girls. What a fun afternoon.
And here’s the ice cream I promised.
And . . . we’re done.
I’m so glad we did this. They both have big plans to be in places far away soon, and that’s good. But so was this. This moment.
You can see more of the shoot here.
If I can help tell the story of your right-now moment, please let me know. It would be my pleasure.
