Day One by billyboy

Daughter Melanie.
At Flagler Beach, Florida.
Don’t remember the date, but it was the very day she turned from a teenager to a woman.
Kinda glad I got that moment on film…

    What I love about this portrait of Mel, is the beautiful softness and that look on her face that seems to say,….Dad? Can we make this the LAST shot for today, I’d kinda prefer to go swimming ok?
    Gorgeous Billy :)

  • Yeah Tracie, it was kind of a SOFT threat :-)
    I think of all the pictures I’ve ever taken of her (and I’ve taken an absolute gazillion), her expression on this particular one melts me… the serenity lets her true and deep beauty shine through in more ways than physical.
    Thanx for gorging :-))
