I know many of you have seen this photo before, but this is a moment I’ll always cherish.
Normally I’d come unglued if someone were to so inconsiderately step right in front of me as I set up for a photograph. But all I could think of as my daughter stepped into the frame, without so much as a thought as to what Daddy was doing, iPhone raised to take her own picture, was “please don’t move, please don’t move, at least not until after I can press the shutter!”
I knew that if she did, the moment would be over. Having her pose in an attempt to recreate the scene would not have been the same.
I made a few really spectacular shots the day I made this. All very dramatic, waves crashing over the rocks. This will always be my favorite.
