Beauty and the Beach

Alicia came back for a third shoot with me about 2 weeks may remember her as Lara Croft. Well, we took these natural light shots at the house and then we went to the beach to do some more shooting. Unfortunately, early on in the shoot, I was caught off guard by an unexpected wave, and my camera, along with most of my equipment, was drenched with salt water. Needless to say, the beach shoot was cut short. I thought I handled it pretty well, and Alicia and I laughed about it on the way home. Luckily, all pictures were saved and my camera started working again the next day....(although it does need a good cleaning.)
I'd like to add that this photo is taken straight from the camera and there is zero photoshop. Alicia's mom ended up sending me a very nice message saying that this was one of her favorite shots of her daughter EVER, and I think that made the whole day worth while.

Great simplicity in this one, Bud. Simple and elegant.

Close call on the unexpected wave. Glad your equipment started working again.
