on some portraits from the beach...

two shells.
Just a couple treasures from the sea.

open arms.
This is my favorite photo from the day. I love it when the most perfect moment is captured. I can't look at this photo without feeling complely happy.

and this, my friends, is pure joy.
My second favorite. Because what is this, if not pure, unadulterated joy?

a bit of the sea.
Another small bit of the ocean. I think the chipped nailpolish only adds to the character, you know.

building castles.
Building castles.

Nikki is growing up entirely too fast.
When I look at this girl, I still see the tiny little girl with big blue eyes who stole our hearts almost ten years ago. She is growing up before my eyes.

Lindsay in the sand - her favorite place, apparently.
And how can you not fall in love with this little munchkin? Her toothless grin gets me every time.

candy war.
Did someone say candy war? A feisty one, that Lindsay.

jawbreaker, right?
It's a jawbreaker. Obviously. (Well, that, and Nikki is a drama queen.)

I want YOU.
I adore this photo! It seemed a wee bit bright to begin with, but after looking at it for a while, I've decided that it's just right. Again, I love feeling like I've captured just the right moment. (Note the candy on her chin. Just a perfect touch, no?)
