We had a blast yesterday with Tirzah and her sister Rae Rae! We started our shoot on the cliffs then moved down to the beach to play with sparklers! This was supposed to be a brand rep shoot with a 4th of july/beach boho theme, but when I first arrived the girls were in beautiful beachy dresses so snapped a few pictures of them before they changed into their actual outfits!
^^ From the start of the shoot. She didn't know I took this one, and I love that because I think there is a lot of beauty in the unposed subject.

^^ Another mirror image. I just love this one!

Tip: I'm all about candid shots right now. I realized the best way to get good ones is to just stand back and watch your subjects interact. Always be ready to catch a laugh.
