So I am doing a 'grow with me' series of pictures of Lena if you will (newborn, 4 months, 8 months and 1 year). I am doing them all at the same location- the beach under the peir. This trip all she wanted to do was eat the sand- which led to some pretty adorable faces if I do say so myself! It's cool to see how she is growing and also cool to see how my photography is growing. Both have a lot of growing left to do but I am enjoying this stage very much, in both respects!
