Sarah and Arron, hailing all the way from the United Kingdom. They were roaming California on holiday, celebrating their 7th anniversary.
that we got to hang out
that they rented a convertible – so iconic
her hair blowing in the wind
his crooked smile
their comfortable hug in front of grafitti
her blue nails
their beach outfit change (I literally could not take my eyes off her with that bathing suit and headband and pink hoodie – she was radiant!)
how they forgot I was there a lot of the time
her headband – she made it!
that she brought out her camera
their request for photographs by the lifeguard stand, and how they turned out
(doesn’t the vertical shot on the lifeguard stand seem like it could have been their grandparents?)
a girl who is willing to wear a bathing suit on camera
What you may not be able to see is that these two were a bit shy and a bit unsure of how to “act” for the camera, but they let go and trusted me. And I am thankful to them for that. Soon their shy smiles turned authentic and free. It was really lovely bringing them out of their shell.
