What I do is rewarding. Fact. Holding a heartfelt thank you note in your hands makes all the late nights in front of the computer, the non-existing weekends, the immense pressure of being present every second, being in the moment, anticipating those fleeting moments all worth it. One hundred percent worth it.
Tanya wrote me such a note. I will treasure her words just the same as she would her family memories which will turn eventually into family heirlooms.
These guys were an absolute joy to photographs. Their dynamics. The fun moments which sometimes lead to a few tears. Everyone who has kids would know what that means. Like little Giana who enjoyed the water so much and before we knew it she was taken out by a rough mean wave.
Thanks guys for being such sports and special thank you to Lyla and Giana who kept making me the most delicious mud slash sand cakes for me to imaginably devour. Looking forward to our next shoot. This time I’ll bring the cookies or bolinhos
Much Love, Chaz
