A quiet beach and a little girl, lost.
It’s no secret that I love to capture what I think of as stolen moments. Those fleeting seconds when everyone assumes no photos are being taken. When they forget about the camera, the lights, and whatever else is going on around them and get lost in their own thoughts. Often these shots are intended as test shots, meant to be used to assess the light and the scene and then discarded when we take the “proper” photo. Occasionally they happen during transitions between poses. Regardless, they tend to capture something we weren’t expecting. Often it’s laugher and silliness, but sometimes it’s something a bit darker. Something that reminds us that behind the bright, smiling face of the beautiful woman in front of us there might sometimes be a sad little girl.
