I know it’s said a lot, but I’m always amazed by how quickly kids grow up.
Here is a shot of my gorgeous nephew from 2 years ago when he was 9. At this age it was all about football, football, football.
Now here he is on Seaford beach last weekend aged 11.
What a difference two years makes! I think he looks like a teenager with his long hair and cool clothes. And now football is a distant memory and it’s all about Playstation, street dancing and hanging out with his mates at the skate park with his JD Bug (check me out being down with the kids!)
It was a gorgeous sunny weekend in the rest of the country but on the coast in East Sussex the sea mist had come in and filled the sky. I wasn’t complaining though as it created a beautiful light for some beach shots.
My toddler just idolises his big cousin and follows him everywhere. He often wakes up in the morning and the first thing he says is ‘Toto’ (his nickname for him). And I understand why he adores him so much, he’s great company!
And here is my lovely big sister.
I just love the beach and we’re very lucky that that my family all live by the coast as it gives us a good excuse to go a lot!
Check back later this week for more tips on photographing your children.
